What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy has been used since the beginning of time to calm and soothe the mind and to help our brains to access, process and evaluate information in a way that is helpful and advantageous to us. Unfortunately there is often a distrust or even fear of hypnosis, people expect that they will be totally helpless and at the mercy of the hypnotist! Whilst this may make for good entertainment it is certainly not beneficial to a hypnotherapist who is attempting to work with a client - hypnosis is in actual fact a deep sense of relaxation and is in no way incapacitating, if you have an itch, scratch it! You will be aware and conscious but just so very relaxed that you probably won't want to do anything - and that is how we are able to access your unconscious mind and address the reasons behind your particular issue.


Many of the issues we have trouble dealing with today could be based on our reaction to a single incident or event which happened to us when, either through immaturity, fear or embarrassment we were not in a position to deal with it appropriately and since then our brain has been re-feeding us those original emotions and reactions as the only way to feel in that situation - now just stop and think about that for a second - does it make any sense - would you still expect to be doing and reacting to other everyday things in the same way you did as a child?


So why allow fear or misunderstanding to hold you back?


With my assistance you can safely unlock the reasons behind ... why you can't lose weight, why a particular reaction from a friend or partner makes you so angry, why you hate spiders or needles so much, why a particular situation always makes you react in the same way...your own mind will hold the answer and I can help you relax and discover the path to a happier, more confident and healthier you.


Pain management is another very valuable resource in hypnosis - whether it is in the short term such as toothache, headaches or child birth or how to manage longer term ailments such as arthritis, migraines, sciatica and other types of pain.


As an Analytical Hypnotherapist I have been trained to help you to evaluate and decide on how we treat your individual condition, for example with Weight Loss we can install a Virtual Gastric Band - this has none of the surgical implications of the traditional method but has proven to be equally effective for long term weight loss.


Anxiety, stress, performance issues, phobias, jealousy, bullying and anger management are all very isolating and often debilitating conditions which with trained assistance can often be completely eradicated in a few comforting sessions, so why wait, give me a call and we can begin to help you live your real life, free from worry.
