What to expect
If you come into my therapy room expecting me to click my fingers or wave a pocket watch then you will be very disappointed. However if you want to feel more positive about life and learn to take control then you have come to the right place.
Hypnotherapy is quite often misunderstood. Many people don’t understand what it is or how it works. Many people have seen old movies and TV programmes where hypnosis has been used for a more sinister purpose and are left wary of its abilities.
Hypnotherapy and hypnosis are nothing to be afraid of. Hypnotherapy is like many other talking therapies such as Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but unlike those, Hypnotherapy utilises the powerful tool of trance.
What is trance?
Trance is perfectly normal and we all go into some form of trance everyday, whether it be on a long journey when we are staring out of the window or when we are totally relaxed watching a movie. Trance is when we are in a completely relaxed state and it is when we are in this state that a hypnotherapist can influence the subconscious mind to create positive change.
Trance is induced by getting the client to completely relax, there is no need for any form of grand gesture or trickery. It is perfectly safe and the client remains in control at all times.
What will I do for you?
My aim is to get my clients to focus on where they want their life to be and not their problems. By focussing on their goals we can find the small steps that are required to take them on their journey to an improved life. Very often the solution is completely unrelated to the problem and I have seen some amazing transformations in my clients.
When my clients first come to see me they normally have some form of anxiety. By getting them to focus on the positive aspects of life we can reduce this anxiety and reduce the amount of bad chemicals in their body such as adrenaline and cortisol. In turn I get my clients to become more active, to interact with people in a more positive way and to start thinking more positively. In doing this we can increase a chemical called serotonin which is a natural reward created by the brain to make us happy.
What can I help with?
Hypnotherapy can help with many physical conditions as well and mental health. Conditions that can be helped include:
- Chronic pain
Overall Hypnotherapy is a very positive and enjoyable therapy with many benefits and I believe will become even more popular in years to come.
