Hypnotherapy is essentially a state of deep relaxation where the conscious, controlling mind takes a back seat, allowing for the subconscious mind to take the lead and be more receptive to accepting new and positive, maybe even life-changing, ideas.
Hypnotherapy can be very effective for the following:
During a session of hypnotherapy you will firstly be encouraged to relax by listening to a gentle slow paced invitation to switch off your conscious mind and let all of your daily worries drift away, a bit like a guided meditation. This will then be followed by the positive suggestion part of the therapy which supports the changes that you wish to make in your life, in line with what we will have already discussed. The session finishes with a 'wake-up' which sets you back on course for continuing with your day.
Unlike stage hypnotism, you are in full control throughout the session and will probably remain aware of what is going on around you. You are not 'knocked out' but will hopefully be relaxed enough to take the time you need to absorb all the new and positive ideas that are available to you.
You can never be made to say, or do, anything you do not want to and if I, or anyone else, were to make suggestions that you did not morally approve of, you would simply disregard them. You will never give away any secrets or be made to act in a ridiculous way. You are always in control but at the same time you are also very deeply relaxed.
I offer a free thirty minute consultation, in person or by phone, during which we will look together at what you want to change in order to help you to improve your life, and we then decide together how we are going to do that. You will always be treated as an individual and the approach that I use will be tailored to suit your needs and issues.
Whilst Hypnotherapy is very effective, it is not magic. It can support and encourage you to make changes in your life by giving you a positive internal script. It can relax you and help you to build your confidence but, as with all personal development, your effort is also required; you need to want to make the changes and to put your heart into it. I would love to be able to wave a magic wand to right all that is wrong but that does not look likely anytime soon...unfortunately!
