People come for counselling or hypnotherapy for all kinds or reasons. If you are experiencing some kind of stress, change or unhappiness in your life and have noticed an impact at your home, work or college, counselling and hypnotherapy can help make a difference.
The first appointment will provide us with the time and space to understand and recognize the areas in your life that might be causing you unhappiness.
In the follow up sessions, we can explore past experiences and consider your thoughts around the future. this is your space and time to use in a way that suits you. As you become more comfortable, we can work through whatever is causing your anxiety, stress or upset and discontent in your life; through gently unravelling and understanding your feelings, you become able, and more skilled, at seeing a clearer way forward.
At its most effective therapy can be a life changing process enabling people to feel more effective and fulfilled in their life.
Hypnotherapy works on the basis that it can be unconscious thought processes that cause us to behave in ways that consciously, we’d prefer not to. So Hypnotherapy is about waking people out of these trance states that have been leading to unwanted behaviour like smoking, overeating or negative thinking. I use techniques that are specifically chosen to suit each individual. Hypnotherapy is usually only a couple of sessions to get desired result.
Should you be considering Hypnosis for the first time, you may be slightly apprehensive, not knowing what to expect. Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation, during which your sub-conscious mind-the controller of all automatic processes and reactions becomes more susceptible to suggestion.
Contrary to some depictions of hypnosis in books, movies or television, people who have been hypnotised do not lose control over their behaviour. You will remain aware of who you are and where you are. Hypnosis makes it easier for people to experience positive suggestions, which are for their benefit. It also strengthens the ego and brings about positive attitudes.
