How it works
Hypnotherapy is a safe, powerful psychotherapeutic tool which can be used to break the negative cycle of depression and anxiety. It can help with: addictions, anger, blood pressure, weight control, exam nerves, lack of confidence, insomnia, IBS, relationship/marital difficulties, migraine, nail biting, nightmares, obsessions, panic attacks, fears, phobias, stress and many more. Hypnotherapy uses the application of hypnotic techniques to bring about therapeutic change and is a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Hypnosis is totally natural; it is concentration on a single focus or goal.
We all drift in and out of trance throughout our daily lives, we daydream, we focus our attention on something and block out distractions. Examples of this can include listening to music, watching a film, driving a car or simply being deep in thought. In a relaxed state our minds can find solutions for us, they find the right answer, and because we are relaxed we don't have to argue with the answer and find further problems. During a hypnotherapy session, this same state is achieved and is perfectly safe and very relaxing and enjoyable. You remain awake and in control, however whilst in this state, our subconscious minds are susceptible to suggestions which help you achieve the changes that YOU decide what you want to achieve.
Put simply hypnosis is a state of focused attention, there are no rules, it is yourself, looking at you, and so your experience will be totally unique.
Most people do love to say how enjoyable it is, having time to yourself, just thinking with no distractions; like a good spring clean for your mind.
As a client, YOU will have to want to make these changes, and work with me to achieve them. It is a fallacy that under hypnosis I can make you do anything that you do not want to do.
