Hypno – A natural trance state is induced where the subconscious mind becomes fully aware, powerful and focused on the Hypnotherapists voice. The conscious mind is supressed momentarily.
Therapy – The seeds of new beliefs, concepts, habits, behaviours and thoughts are firmly planted into the subconscious mind.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a technique for promoting healing or personal development growth. Hypnotherapy is a natural and relaxing process. Without realising, we are all in a natural hypnotic trance a number of times each day. When we wake from sleep or fall asleep, daydream or driving on autopilot. When the mind doesn’t have any particular thoughts this is a Hypnotic trance. It is naturally occurring and if needed you can easily bring yourself to full awareness as you would when you have to react to traffic whilst driving or answer your doorbell when you’re daydreaming. A client must be open to Hypnotherapy for it to work optimally.
A hypnotherapist will gently help you into a hypnotic trance through suggestions. The mind is naturally susceptible to suggestions. Suggestions are commands the subconscious mind responds and reacts to. You feel very relaxed and comfortable but not asleep. It is an effortless process. In the hypnotic trance state, the subconscious part of your mind is focused and optimised and ready to receive suggestions by the hypnotherapist.
Prior to the session, you can decide if you wish to have content free hypnotherapy. Content free simply means that you can choose not to speak out loud during the session. You will have worked with your hypnotherapist to develop suggestions you would like to be programmed with. Suggestions can be new beliefs, habits, behaviours or thoughts that result in you successfully achieving your desired outcome. A Hypnotherapist will re-programme your subconscious mind to give you the desired outcome. The subconscious mind is very powerful and will take on these new suggestions. In the subsequent days, weeks and months that follow clients find they effortlessly achieve the outcomes desired.

Are there different types of Hypnotherapy?
Yes, there are a number of different types. Depending on a Hypnotherapist training, they can select the most suitable to your needs giving the best transformation. The most common types are:
Is it Safe?
Hypnotherapy is perfectly safe. It is simply a deep relaxed state. You are able to move, hear sounds and get up if you need to. You are completely in control at all times and your mind will only accept suggestions that are beneficial to you.
Is it effective?
The Hypnotic state allows the conscious (logical/analytical) part of the mind to take a break. The therapist can then work with the powerful subconscious part of the mind. The subconscious part of the mind is a vault storing every single experience, belief, habit, behaviour and thought. The changes created in the subconscious mind are more impactful and powerful; the changes don’t rely on will power or logical reasoning. They are accepted and effective immediately.
Who can have Hypnotherapy?
Almost anyone. If you have Psychosis or certain Personality Disorders then we have to exercise caution but it doesn’t rule you out.
Will Hypnotherapy work straight away?
The effectiveness of Hypnotherapy will vary from person to person based on the severity of issue(s). In most cases Hypnotherapy may take 3-5 sessions for a full and sustainable transformation.
I will give each client a recording from their session which I strongly suggest they listen to daily for one month and twice weekly for six months.
How will I feel after Hypnotherapy?
After Hypnotherapy you will feel wide-awake and very positive.
What is accreditation with a professional body?
Accreditation with a professional body means the Hypnotherapist has achieved or exceeded a prescribed level of training. It also indicates agreement to code of ethics, principles and a set of standards.
