The term hypnosis was coined in the 1880s, although it has been around for centuries. Hypnosis is an altered state of mind. It involves focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. Today, there are many other names associated withthis state of mind. Guided meditation, relaxation and mindfulness, are just some examples that uses some of the principles and methods of hypnosis. Hypnosis is a powerful tool for self-improvement and is very safe. You cannot be hypnotised if you don’t want to.
Hypnotherapy is a type of complementary medicine, working in harmony and supporting your needs. By guiding you into hypnosis, a deeper and healthier state of mind, you will feel relaxed and allow your subconscious to come to the forefront where you can freely explore what you want to explore and change what you want to change.
Through exploratory talking, positive suggestions, breathing techniques, and guided imagery, I can help you to overcome a variety of concerns and issues revolving around; emotions, anxiety, phobias, harming behaviours, bad habits, sexual dysfunction, or to ease pain, boost energy, to relax, or even, to sleep.
However, hypnotherapy is not a magic wand. I can’t cast a spell and wave it to bring change… you must want the change too. As a psychotherapist, I naturally encourage free association. Through our talking and interactions, I can draw a plan to help with, what you need help with.
My tailored approach to your personalised treatment will include all that is beneficial to you. These include, free association, hypnosis, suggestions, analysis, metaphors, visualisation, symbolic imagery, Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and/or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I offer a free initial meeting, of up 30 minutes, to briefly explore how we can work together and answer any questions you may have. Managing expectations and setting the scene is the first and foremost requirement.
Sessions are 60 minutes and are £90 in person.
