Hypnotherapy is a natural way to treat all kinds of emotional, nervous or psychological problems by altering someone’s state of consciousness. The absence of any medication is particularly advantageous when working with children and adolescents.
I practice Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy which combines ‘talking therapy’ with hypnosis. Treatment is a collaborative process, focusing on solutions and the future rather than dwelling on problems or the past. It is important to understand that change happens because you want it to and because you are prepared to take the necessary steps to allow it to happen.
Hypnotherapy can be beneficial when dealing with any challenge or issue that you may be facing.
Personal issues that Hypnotherapy can help with include, but are not limited to, anxiety and stress, insomnia, depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, fears and phobias. You may have professional issues such as low self-esteem, challenges of redundancy, problems getting on with colleagues. However, it is not necessary to have a crisis or something specifically ‘wrong’ that you need help with. It may be that you are looking for general relaxation and confidence in your day-to-day life or motivation for a particular event.
Hypnotherapy is not a quick-fix solution but if you are ready to put in the time and commitment, you can make significant and rewarding changes in your life.
Hypnosis is simply a state of focused attention. In this relaxed state, the mind is more responsive to suggestion. Brain wave changes during this process allow us to become more focused, relaxed and able to make decisions easier. In a therapeutic setting, the suggestions are designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns, behaviours and responses.
Hypnosis does not involve staring at a pocket watch, nor does the therapist take control of your mind and make you cluck like a chicken. No one can be hypnotised against their will. Nobody can make you do anything you do not want to – your subconscious mind will simply reject any suggestion that is inappropriate for you. Throughout hypnosis you are in control at all times.
