What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that  uses hypnosis to find solutions to a client’s unwanted habits and feelings. Hypnosis is a natural state of focus and relaxation which is  similar to daydreaming.

 

Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes, pretty much anyone can be hypnotized to some level but some people are naturally better subjects than others.   To get good results from hypnotherapy you must be fully committed to the process

 

Is it safe?

Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural practice with no harmful side effects.  Hence when administered by a professionally trained and skilled hypnotherapist, the benefits are long lasting and often permanent.

 

Is Hypnotherapy for children safe?

Hypnotherapy for children and young people is considered highly effective and is completely safe.  As a matter of fact children usually respond  particularly  well to hypnosis as they are naturally imaginative and use their subconscious minds a great deal more than adults do.  Hypnotherapy can help to address a number of issues commonly experienced in childhood including exam nerves, sleep problems, bed-wetting, fears, and eating disorders.

 

Can you get stuck in hypnosis?

No you cannot get stuck in hypnosis.  You are always in control and if the hypnotherapist were to stop talking you would just re-alert yourself naturally.

What can hypnotherapy effectively be used to treat?

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a wide variety of problems from the more common “quit smoking” or “weight loss” to “, “anxiety issues “, “panic attacks”, “stress”, “addictions”, “confidence”, “sport performance”,  “pain management” …. In addition hypnotherapy can be really effective in treating  “fears and phobias”  Beside the more common “spider phobias”, there are far too many others to name them all but the following lists some examples:

  • Fear of flying
  • Fear of Water
  • Agoraphobia
  • Fear of bees/wasps
  • Fear of dogs or cats
  • Claustrophobia
  • Fear of needles
  • Fear of Surgery or scans

What happens during a session?

The session will begin with a detailed discussion of why you are attending for Hypnotherapy.  You will be seated in a comfortable chair and  then guided by me into a deep state of relaxation.   During the relaxing state  you will be in a heightened state of awareness. This is similar to the natural state we experience just before drifting into sleep at night.  You will be fully aware of what is happening  and able to bring the session to an end any time you wish.  It’s not really like sleep, because you will be alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling of “losing yourself” in a good film or TV programme. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the things going on around you.

 

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions you will need will vary from person to person as well as on the issue being treated.  I will be happy to discuss this with you on a free telephone consultation or at the first session you attend.

 

Is it guaranteed to work?

Hypnotherapy, like almost anything, is never 100% guaranteed to work.  That said, success rates for hypnotherapy are often much higher than success rates for other complimentary therapies and even some medical treatments.
