Hypnotherapy is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis. Psychotherapy is often known as ‘talking therapy’.
The first part of the session is talking. I work in a Solution Focused manner, using conversation to move you towards your best outcome for this session.
My aim in to move you away from the past towards your preferred future. How do you want to be? How would you like to feel? What would you be doing differently if you was in a good place?
Then during trance, you are in a relaxed state, I use suggestion and visualisation to help you achieve your goals. The trance state is a natural state of mind that you may have experienced before, such as when you are daydreaming or lost in thought. It is a state of heightened focus and concentration.
During hypnosis, you are still in control and aware of what is happening around you. You cannot be made to do anything against your will, and you can come out of the trance state at any time.
Hypnotherapy can be an effective way to help with a range of issues such as anxiety, phobias, and addiction. By using hypnosis to access your subconscious mind, we can help you make positive changes to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
