What is hypnotherapy useful for?
Hypnotherapy can be used to help people break habits. It addresses many conditions, particularly those made worse by stress such as panic attacks and phobias. If you have problems with eating, a lack of confidence, sleeping or coping with pain you may benefit from hypnotherapy. It can be integrated with other counselling techniques such as CBT and transactional analysis – sessions are customized to each person’s needs.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural, deeply relaxed state – a bit like daydreaming or drifting off. Hypnotherapy uses this state to help you to relax and focus on the changes you want to make in your life.
One question a lot of people ask is, “Will I lose control when I’m hypnotised?”. The answer is, ‘No, you will always be in control, and can come out of hypnosis any time you choose.”
What happens in a session?
In your first session we’ll discuss the history of the problem, the changes you want to make and how hypnotherapy can help you. You can ask any questions you have about hypnotherapy. We then agree a programme tailored to your individual requirements and preferences. When you’re ready, you will be guided into the hypnotic state. At the end of the session you will be fully awake and ready to continue your day.
