What is Hypnotherapy ?

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis to help people change their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility in which people are more open to change. During hypnosis, people are able to focus their attention and concentrate more deeply. This allows them to access their subconscious mind, where they can work through past experiences, change negative beliefs, and develop new coping mechanisms.


Is Hypnosis Safe ?

Hypnotherapy is considered to be a safe and effective form of therapy. However, it is important to note that hypnosis is not a cure-all and it is not effective for everyone. If you are considering hypnotherapy, it is important to talk to a qualified hypnotherapist to see if it is right for you. 

How does Hypnosis work ?

Hypnosis works by increasing the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for relaxation. Hypnosis also appears to increase the release of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers.

Hypnosis is a relaxing trance like state of mind, where you have heightened focus and attention. Your mind has the ability to process information in a far more productive way whilst in a Hypnotic Trance, you are more able to accept solutions and suggestions that are valuable to you if you are calm and relaxed.
We all go in and out of trance many times during the day – perhaps when we are driving, reading a good book or watching a film, when we daydream or even mowing the lawn. During this time, the subconscious mind is more aware and can focus on suggestions and thoughts. Its also incredibly relaxing.

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy ?

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a type of hypnotherapy that focuses on the future rather than the past. It is based on the belief that people have the ability to change and that they already have the resources they need to make those changes.

Solution-focused hypnotherapists work with their clients to identify what they want to achieve and then help them to develop a plan to make those changes. They use hypnosis to help their clients relax and focus on their goals. They also use visualization techniques to help their clients imagine themselves achieving their goals.

Hypnotherapy is not mind control

Hypnotherapy is not mind control. You cannot be made to do anything that you do not want or believe in.

Curious about what to expect from your journey with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy? Let's dispel a common misconception: it's not about someone waving a magic wand to fix your problems. It's a collaborative process where your desire for change and readiness to take action are key.

Our journey begins with the Initial Consultation, a pivotal step where we'll delve into your goals, how hypnotherapy fits into your journey, and map out the likely course of sessions ahead.

Subsequent sessions extend far beyond mere hypnosis. We kick off each session by celebrating your progress and fostering positive expression, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on obstacles.

Together, we'll envision your ideal future, one where you hold a more empowering perspective on life's journey. Then, I'll guide you into a state of relaxation, using hypnosis to solidify our discussions and pave the way for lasting change.

What to Expect During a Hypnotherapy Session

A typical hypnotherapy session will last for about an hour. During the session, the hypnotherapist will help you to relax and focus your attention. Once you are in a state of hypnosis, the hypnotherapist will work with you to address the issue you are seeking help for. For example, if you are seeking help for anxiety, the hypnotherapist may help you to develop relaxation techniques or to change negative thought patterns.

After a Hypnotherapy Session

After a hypnotherapy session, you may feel relaxed and refreshed. You may also notice a decrease in anxiety, stress, or pain. It is important to note that the effects of hypnosis are not always immediate and it may take several sessions to see results.

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way to improve your health and well-being.

Trance is very natural

Contrary to what you might see on the television or at magic shows, Hypnotherapy is not mind-control! When we are in trance, we are still in control and we decide if information or suggestions are useful to us and will not accept or do anything against our will.

Hypnosis reduces anxiety, and this is done simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing the client to focus on the positive aspects of their life that can encourage a shift in perspective.
