What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a straightforward, centuries old technique for stilling the mind. It lets you think more deeply and clearly as you relax deeper than you realised you could. The clutter just floats away and the goals you want to reach become much more real as the steps towards them become apparent and possible.

Do you spend your life rushing about, never having time to stop long enough to feel properly refreshed and ready to face the challenges life throws at you? Life in the fast lane can be exciting but it often doesn’t leave much time for quiet reflection and a chance to check you are still in touch with your priorities and values. A healthy balance between work, rest and play can get left by the wayside.

If you think this sounds a bit like your life, and you don’t allow yourself time to relax, then hypnotherapy can teach you how to get back in touch with yourself and relax quickly and effectively.

Hypnosis offers you the opportunity to relax and become a more creative person as you learn to tune in to your body and mind.

Can you remember a time when you felt more confident, more in control of your life, and able to enjoy your relationships with a greater sense of joy? Hypnosis can allow you to experience those feelings again and be able to access them whenever you need them. You will also discover what you were doing differently then, and begin to introduce some more positive ways to live your life again.

If you are keen to learn more effective strategies to allow you to feel more confident and in control of various aspects of your life, then solution focused brief therapy with hypnosis could well be the key. Is it time to expand your horizons? Could you create a far more satisfying life if you banished those fears or increased your confidence?

How does Hypnosis work?

When we relax deeply the unconscious mind becomes more accessible to us – think about daydreaming, or how suddenly you will think of the answer to a problem after a good night’s sleep.

Hypnosis allows the therapist better access to ‘change the template’ for those phobias, habits or difficulties.

Using metaphors, stories and other techniques it is possible to gently allow the unconscious mind to consider a different way of reacting to the specific problem, and consider the possibilities of how life will be improved now the change has been effected. Thus giving up smoking will be effortless and looking forward to getting on that airplane will be a strange but very pleasant feeling instead of dreading it!

What can Hypnosis help me with?

Healing with trance states has been used in many cultures down the ages. Hypnosis is a very pleasant state of deep relaxation when your desired goals can more easily be suggested to your unconscious. You are totally in control and will be taught techniques you can use at home to help you relax more easily.

Hypnosis can help with:

  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight control
  • Anxiety, exam nerves
  • Memory problems
  • Nail biting
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Phobias
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Pain management
  • Peak performance
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Confidence

What will happen in a session?

First we will discuss the reason for you coming to see me, and any background information that will help us form goals together and decide on what you would like to achieve from the session.

Once we have agreed your goals and established how you are going to reach them, we can begin to increase your ability to relax deeply and practise using your imagination in a positive way. When several sessions are involved, we might set tasks to help you chart your progress. Often, however, your goals can be achieved in a single session.
