I work with many different issues, including confidence building, anxiety, weight loss and stop smoking.
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focussing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness – reached using skilled relaxation techniques – allows the therapist to then make appropriate suggestions.
Hypnotherapy is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking, stress related issues and for a range of long-term conditions, and in recent years has been gaining steam in the medical world after a recommendation from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recognised hypnotherapy as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Traditional/suggestion hypnotherapy involves the therapist imparting a series of ‘suggestions’ to the subconscious mind with a view to positively influencing thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This form of hypnotherapy is often employed in situations where there is no root cause that needs addressing, and can also be used effectively on a short-term basis to foster change in a limited number of sessions.
