Hypnotherapy is a well-recognised healing state of mind, orginating from the Greek word 'sleep'. With eyes closed, clients experience a relaxed and safe way to indentify and develop meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving, through a trance-like state.

Hypnotherapy enlists the power of the client’s own imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques from story telling, metaphor or symbolism (judged to be meaningful to the individual client) to the use of direct suggestions for beneficial change.

Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural process of working with your conscious and subconscious mind to empower you to overcome many issues, some of which are mentioned above. The successful uses of hypnosis are vast as it targets the mind which effectively controls our feelings and any psychosomatic and physical issues such as pain and dis-ease. Therefore, by uniting both the conscious and subconscious mind to work together as one powerful force, the mind is able to affect how we feel in any given situation as well as influence pain and physical healing in a positive way.

Does hypnosis really work?

Yes, and it is one of the most pleasant and natural therapies available! It puts you in charge of your own mind and outcomes with no side effects. The evidence for hypnotherapy being an effective tool for emotional healing as well as pain control and physical healing is well documented. Even today in Charing Cross Hospital the NHS is showing that Hypnotherapy can help cancer patients successfully deal with anxiety, panic attacks, fear, stress, pain management, sleeping problems, radio and chemotherapy treatment and many other psychosomatic and psychological complaints. Hypnotherapy techniques are also used at Charring Cross Hospital to boost patients' immune system thus aiding the fight against cancer and helping the healing process.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation with focused concentration. Hypnosis happens naturally to most people daily such as when we daydream, while driving a familiar route, reading a book, or watching a movie. Hypnosis is simply being in a relaxed state with a focus. During hypnosis, you are aware of everything being said and are in full control of yourself. It is similar to being in a daydream where you can snap yourself out at any time you choose. Most clients report that hypnosis is a very pleasant and relaxing experience that they enjoy.

How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Every human has a series of beliefs running in their subconscious mind. Some are helpful beliefs, but others are unhelpful. Unhelpful beliefs can cause: sadness, depression, low confidence, addictive behaviours and fear of flying, etc. All these beliefs are kept in place by what is known as the Conscious Critical Faculty. Once you decide to change an unhelpful belief, I will assist you to bypass the Conscious Critical Faculty and replace unwanted beliefs with new healthy and helpful beliefs. This is a powerful and often life changing experience as you can begin to notice changes immediately.

Hypnotherapy is a natural and safe process and is often quite enjoyable. In fact, most clients report feeling calm, positive and relaxed at the end of a session.

How Does Hypnotherapy Feel?

Most clients report a deep state of relaxation and peaceful sensations. Under Hypnotherapy, the body relaxes together with the mind causing a state of peace and well-being. Many clients say that hypnosis feels like going to bed after a long day.

Is it Safe and Am I In Control?

Clients often hear and remember what is said in the session. During Hypnosis you are Awake and Aware and have Control of everything you say and do. It is a safe and natural state which you can choose to enter, or come out of, at any time you wish. The Hypnotherapy session is always controlled by You, the Hypnotherapist only plays a guiding role.
