About hypnotherapy...

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is simply an altered state of consciousness and is completely natural for all humans. We all pass through a trance state several times a day – have you ever been so engrossed in reading or watching a film or sport that you are completely unaware of what’s going on around you? When we are in this relaxed state it becomes possible to make changes to the way we think, feel and behave. So hypnotherapy is me, as a therapist, guiding you into a hypnotic state in order to help you make the positive changes you want to make.

What can hypnotherapy help with?

Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of conditions – I’ve just outlined some key ones on this website. Because it can positively influence the way you think and feel about certain things and situations, It can change the way you behave too. For example it can help you with insomnia, pain, phobias, fears (flying, dentist etc), chronic health conditions – the list really is endless. If you’re not sure if hypnotherapy can help you, just get in touch for a chat.

What does hypnotherapy feel like?

It can feel like the experience just before you drift off to sleep, where you feel very relaxed and your mind wanders. You are still aware and yet your body falls asleep.

Can I be hypnotised?

Yes everyone can be hypnotised. Hypnosis is a natural state for all human beings and we all experience it every day – we just don’t notice it because it is such a natural experience.

Is it safe?

Yes, but it is important that you find a qualified and experienced therapist.

Are there any side effects?

During a session you may experience a floating feeling, maybe feel light, unaware of your body and of time passing. At the end of the session you will feel completely normal and able to carry on with your day as normal.

Can you make me do or say things?

No. You will remain in control and cannot be made to do, say or think anything that you don’t find acceptable. You are not asleep and you can choose to come out of the state at any time. My role is simply to guide you into a relaxed state and help to produce therapeutic change.
