Hypnotherapy is a type of Complementary and Alternative medicine in which the mind is used in an attempt to help with a variety of problems, such as breaking bad habits or coping with stress. It is used for a wide variety of applications from stress, anxiety, relaxation to fears and phobias, health issues, weight reduction and management.
Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy involving hypnosis which focuses a clients imagination and subconscious mind to help bring about positive changes to their thoughts, feelings or behaviour. Together the hypnotherapist and client will decide on the desired changes to work on prior to the hypnosis occurring.
Hypnotherapy uses the power of positive suggestion to influence a change in our behaviour and the way we respond to our thoughts, feelings and emotions. It is a form of complementary therapy that uses talking therapy and hypnosis to help people make positive change, promote relaxation, and have a better quality of life.
95% of our behaviour and decisions are controlled by the subconscious mind. In a therapeutic setting, hypnosis provides a powerful tool to access our subconscious thought patterns and behaviours, and resolve issues that lie beyond the capabilities of the conscious mind. This deep state of relaxation and solution focused awareness offers a perspective for new insights and understanding to develop with the skilful help and support of the Hypnotherapist.
Many people are nervous about having a Hypnotherapy session. For a lot of people it is a fear of the unknown. People feel that the Hypnotherapist is in control of you during the session. This is not true, the client is in control the whole time.
It is perfectly understandable to be nervous, however, Hypnotherapy is completely safe. No one has ever been hurt by the therapy, so there is no real need to be worried about having therapy.
If you are wanting Hypnotherapy and you are nervous about it, i can have a chat with you to go through everything and tell you what will happen. This builds rapport so you get to know me and make you feel at ease. You can also bring someone with you into the session if you wish.
