What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis is a process for inducing a focused state of selective attention that some people call a trance. Being in a trance is 100% natural, normal and safe and something we all experience from time to time. It is not a form of sleep but that pleasant, focused state that you have already experienced when you are engrossed in a good book or movie or perhaps listening to wonderful music. I help you achieve this focused state of mental concentration, where you are more open to beneficial suggestions that I devise from your own needs and goals.
Stimulate your imagination to bring therapeutic change
You may be intrigued by what hypnotherapy can offer
If your only experience or knowledge of hypnosis is via stage or TV shows where people do silly things, then you may be intrigued by what hypnotherapy has to offer. Stage hypnosis is all about entertainment and quite different to the purpose and experience of hypnotherapy.
Access a focused state of selective attention, ideal for learning
Guide the mind to harness solutions that work for you
You can look forward to experiencing hypnotherapy techniques that relax the mind and help clear the busy chatter and emotional arousal that make it difficult to think clearly and rationally. You will harness your own powerful imagination to find creative solutions to problems, altering old habits or unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour or perhaps learning to tolerate the uncertainty that drives anxiety.
Faster than traditional talking therapies, hypnotherapy can produce lasting and effective change
Changing to a more helpful perspective
Psychotherapy delivered through hypnosis has 3 main purposes:
- to gain access to information stored at a subconscious level
- to reinforce beneficial suggestions
- to change perception of the past, present or future
Memories and future expectations are only thoughts, and not based on actual experiences happening in the present. We all tend to believe that our memories are accurate when in fact they become distorted over time and are usually an inaccurate or biased representation of a past event. Likewise, when you imagine the future, you can choose to see it in many different ways.
Hypnotic suggestion can change your perspective, affecting how you think, feel and behave in the present
Experience the benefits for yourself
You can move from self-limiting thinking and behaviour to self-enhancing thinking and behaviour. Each hypnotherapy session is created uniquely for you, based on the information you provide at your initial assessment session. I also use other psychotherapeutic techniques as a complement to hypnotherapy, depending on what would be most beneficial for you.
