How can hypnotherapy help me?
Hypnosis is quite simply a focused state of attention. It is, in fact, more ‘normal’ than you may think – the reality being far removed from the many misconceptions and myths that have surrounded the practice.
During a hypnotherapy session, you can expect to feel deeply calm and relaxed. It is during this time, in this safe space, that the therapist can begin to make positive suggestions for change as indicated by the client.
Throughout the session, the client is always in control and maintains awareness at all times.
Hypnosis works by utilising the REM state, which is associated with the mind learning new patterns of behaviour. When combined with Solution Focused Psychotherapy, you can achieve positive results in a short period of time. By its nature a fundamental neurological process, hypnosis is a normal state experienced by all humans daily. This makes hypnotherapy a side-effect free, safe, and suitable option for people of all ages.
