What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is Talking Therapy like Counselling. I use Solution Focused Questions to help you think about where you want to be in life (rather than focus on problems). We use hypnosis which is a natural state of trance similar to that achieved in meditation or day dreaming and which can be induced by concentrating on a single idea or focus. In a therapeutic setting, hypnosis provides a very powerful tool to access subconscious patterns of thought and behaviour and resolve issues that lie beyond the capabilities of your conscious mind. The profound state of relaxation and Solution Focused awareness provides a context for new insights and understandings to be formed with the assistance of the therapist.
Modern hypnotherapy utilises the clinically-proven techniques of CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and other approaches and combines them with the state of deep relaxation and trance to help people make significant and positive changes within a relatively short period of time.
Treatment is tailored to each client and a programme of therapy is designed according to your preferences and your needs. It is a very enjoyable and relaxing process with the emphasis being placed on where you want to be rather than why you are in your current situation.
