Hypnotherapy is acknowledged by the Royal Society of Medicine as an effective therapy for a whole variety of issues – and is not to be confused with such things as stage hypnosis. As a trained clinical hypnotherapist, I will work with you to enhance your wellbeing.
The National Hypnotherapy Society defines hypnotherapy as a ‘skilled verbal communication’ and this is where my verbal skills, honed over three decades as a leading communicator, come into their own. Hypnosis is not sleep. During a session you will be relaxed into a safe hypnotic state that is a sleep of the nervous system that allows a two-way conversation between me and your subconscious mind: the part of you that will be holding onto pain or directing behaviours you no longer want to run your life. You will be fully aware of this conversation and you will be empowered when you understand the origin or any issue or behavior and further empowered when I free you from it.
The session will typically last one and a half hours. The first half hour will be a totally confidential discussion of what is troubling you and how it is making you feel or behave. I will then demonstrate, if you have not been hypnotized before, what the simple process involves and then when you are relaxed and ready I will hypnotise you. During this regression state the conversation will take place with your subconscious mind so that we can find the root cause of your issue. This will also last approximately half an hour.
In the last half hour of the session we will create your bespoke cure. This part will be recorded for you, preferably on your phone, and then you will have it to listen to for 21 days or longer. Why? Because it has been proven that to truly break and rewire a behaviour or thought process you need to repeat the new and positive beliefs for 21 days. It may not take that long for you. Many people leave the session with such a deep understanding of the underlying cause of their former issue and such a sense of lightness or relief that the cure is effective from that moment onwards. For others the change is more gradual and for some it is essentially retrospective. It is only some weeks later that you find that an old habit or behavior is no longer part of who you are or what you do.
