Hypnotherapy is nothing new nor is it some mystical force.

Entering into a state of hypnosis is as natural as eating or sleeping. In fact we all go into an hypnotic state several times a day for example, when we watch T.V., or become engrossed in a good book or when we are daydreaming.

Hypnosis allows us to access the subconscious mind , the storehouse of memory about every person, place, or experience we have had in this lifetime. It is very powerful and contains a massive amount of information. It is conditioned by past events and it is in the subconscious that many present problems have their origin, such as phobias and illnesses.

The subconscious can be accessed when we are relaxed and it is in this way that hypnosis can be so effective. It takes you into a state of relaxation where beneficial suggestions can enter into the subconscious.

It is important for you to know that there is no way that I can make you do anything which you find unacceptable. At all times, you are aware of what I am saying and doing and can wake up at any time you choose.

As you are conscious of what is happening you are also able to answer questions. This means that we are able to pinpoint a particular incident which can be affecting you now and causing your current problem.

A Typical Session

The initial session is very important in getting to know you as an individual and understanding what changes you want to make. This consultation is normally free and should not take longer than 30 minutes.

Typically the first session will last an hour (anti-smoking a bit longer)

Subsequent sessions last between 45 - 60 minutes, and will start with an assessment both of the progress being made, and areas where further progress is needed.

The client will be relaxed deeply: this state is induced gradually by using a combination of methods such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing, guided imagery and other techniques.Many clients find that this sensation is so pleasant that they wish to be able to access it at any time outside the therapy room. This can be taught as self hypnosis (involving 2-3 sessions).

In this relaxed trance state it is possible improve the way you feel, think and behave by drawing on the power of the subconscious mind, making it easier to achieve your goals.

A wide variety of issues can be treated using Hypnotherapy and I list the more common concerns under Treatable Conditions but don't worry if you can't see yours, it just means that I couldn't fit it on the list. As human beings, we are all unique individuals with unique problems so don't think that you are odd or different, you are just experiencing difficulty in knowing just where to start and hypnotherapy can help.

Sometimes you might feel more comfortable discussing yor problem under Counselling conditions. The choice is, at all times, yours.
