Many people ask me "What is Hypnotherapy?" Well, Hypnotherapy is a natural way of treating many kinds of emotional and psychological problems that we find ourselves suffering from especially with the pressures of todays busy world and the different lives we live or would like to live.
People are quite often worried about Hypnosis and with different television programmes recently, believe that as Hypnotherapists we can make anybody do all sorts of silly things. So what is Hypnosis really? Hypnosis is a mild meditative state where we bypass the conscious mind and talk to the subconscious mind which is where we store all our past experiences from birth upwards. Hypnotherapy is not like the 'show hypnosis' or 'mentalism' that you see on the TV, you are always in control and at no time will you be asked to do anything that you don't want to do. Hypnotherapy simply enhances your concentration and increases your responsiveness to suggestions in order that you can make the beneficial changes that you wish to make so as to reach your true potential.
Hypnosis is thought by many people as being a relatively new practice compared to other standard and complimentary medicines but in fact different forms of hypnosis have been practiced for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Ancient Egyptian relics have been thought to depict scenes of a trance like state, similar to hypnosis. Australian Aborigines have used a hypnotic trance state for thousands of years, as have the American Indians and other tribal cultures all over the world. The Hindu's are renowned for their trance like states for walking on hot coals etc.
I expect at this point you are wondering what sorts of things that Hypnotherapy can help. Hypnotherapy can help with many different problems such as Stress, Anxiety, Confidence and Self-Esteem issues, Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss, Hypno Gastric Band Phobias such as Flying, Dentistry and Fear of Heights, Exam Nerves including Driving Tests, IBS, Pain Control including Birthing, Sports Performance Boosters, Motivation Drivers and much much more.
I offer a complimentary, no obligation, initial consultation which takes approximately 30 minutes prior to your first Hypnotherapy session.
During the initial consultation we will discuss your suitability for hypnotherapy, how many sessions may be required depending on your goal and I can answer any questions you may have before proceeding onto your first hypnotherapy session.
Hypno-Gastric Band Therapy - Minimum of four sessions
Hypno Gastric Band Therapy is normally completed over four sessions, during which we will ascertain your reasons for over eating and tailor the programme to suit your own individual needs. An individually tailored CD will be given to play between sessions.
Smoking Cessation One-Off minimum 2 hour session
If you really want to quit smoking then Hypnotherapy can help you achieve your goal. Like many addictions, it can be a tough decision to stop and one you can only make for yourself. Hypnotherapy can help you discover why you are still smoking and can enable you to kick the habit once and for all.
