WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy is a "talking therapy" that uses the power of positive suggestion to enable subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Hypnotherapy aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind whilst stimulating and focusing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness will allow your therapist to use your agreed methods of positive suggestion to help you towards your goals. You're fully in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you don't want to.
The unconscious mind is the store of all your resources and problems; this is the reason why hypnotherapy is a lot quicker at achieving positive results than other types of psychotherapy. Simply put, hypnotherapy gets the conscious, critical you "out of the way" so that useful and positive information can be given to your unconscious mind without any negative interference.
Hypnotherapy is widely acknowledged as a treatment for habit breaking, stress-related issues and is recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
For most people this is a fast and effective treatment, with the average being 4-6 sessions. More complex issues may require further sessions. This can often be determined in the initial free phone consultation and I will only go on to treat you if I have a high degree of certainty that I can help you. I have also designed specific strategies to cut down on the number of sessions required by giving clients tailored exercises and techniques to support your progress in between sessions.
HOW CAN HYPNOTHERAPY HELP ME?
Are you suffering from anxiety, a phobia or panic attacks? Perhaps you have an uncontrollable and obsessive attachment to an activity, behaviour or substance? Or you have difficulty controlling your anger? Maybe you just can't sleep at night - insomnia is often an effect of bad habits, stress, tension and anxiety, all of which can be helped with hypnotherapy.
**Contraindications: If you suffer from psychosis or certain types of personality disorder, you should not consider hypnotherapy as it could make your condition worse. If in doubt, please check with your GP first.**
