HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring phenomenon. When you are reading a book, watching a film or driving a car but you don’t remember the journey, you have been in a natural state of hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is a way of using that natural state to help you focus and to access your subconscious mind and work with it in different ways to help you achieve the results you want.


Children are in a natural state of hypnosis pretty much all the time up until the age of 7. They don’t have the life experience to filter out what is true and what is not. So many beliefs can be made and stored in the subconscious mind that as adults we might know are not right on an intellectual level but they still make us ‘feel’ a certain way and that can be a problem.


So we start with the idea that if we have a self limiting belief, something about the way we think, we feel or we behave, it is because life has already hypnotised us to do so through natural hypnosis from life’s experiences that have affected us in some way. So my job is really not to hypnotise but to de-hypnotise the person to help them return to a more natural state where they can be their true selves without the negative self limiting beliefs. I do this by using various methods of analytical therapy usually followed by suggestion therapy to help the client focus on how they want to be.

Tailored Sessions:

Every session is unique for the individual client and their needs, but there are general stages I tend to follow for most sessions. 

Initial Consultation:

When you come to see me we would spend some time talking about what it is you want to change in your life, what you have tried so far, and why you think it may not have worked. During this initial consultation I would be looking for self limiting beliefs and emotional hot spots. These are what we will need to work on to help you move forward. 

Hypnosis:

I will relax you, just so that it’s easier for us to do the work. Whilst in this relaxed, hypnotic state you will be able to speak to me and you will be in control at all times. I have been trained in numerous different techniques that I could use here so what we do next really depends on what is required. Once we have done the Analytical Therapy and you have formed new beliefs to support your desired outcome, I will usually do some Suggestion Therapy based on our discussion earlier.  Just to reinforce those new beliefs and help you move forward.

End of Session:

I’ll then bring you out of trance and that will be the end of your first session. For some people one or two sessions will be enough, but for others it’s possible you may need more. If so, I do a reduction for block bookings if that is something you would be interested in. 

Many people say they feel ‘lighter’ after Hypnotherapy. It can certainly have a profound effect in a very short space of time.

“Everyone can be hypnotised, by life, by teachers, by politicians, by advertising. We are all open to the phenomenon, it is occurring every day. The misconception is that it is something special. It isn’t. But when you know what to do with it you can make something special – and often miracles happen.” –Andrew Parr
