What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a natural state which everyone enters every day.

It can probably be best described as the way that you feel just before you fall asleep or when you first wake up in the morning. While you are in this relaxed state it is possible to gain access to the subconscious mind.

When hypnosis is combined with modern and well-researched strategies it is possible to make positive and significant changes in a relatively short space of time. For example, most phobias can be treated in three sessions and an unwanted habit such as smoking in even less time. Even more complex issues such as depression and weight loss usually require less than ten sessions.

Initial Consultation
An initial consultation is provided free of charge. It will usually be around 45 minutes in duration and at the end of it you can make an informed decision as to whether you wish to book further sessions. If you choose to do this we will agree a personal treatment plan and I will give you an idea as to how many sessions will be required. There is no obligation to do this and in any eventuality you will have provided yourself with an option for change when you decide that the time is right.

The hypnotherapy session
During the hypnosis session you are invited to relax in an armchair or couch and will then be guided into a state of deep physical and mental relaxation.

While in hypnosis, most people are fully aware of their surroundings and you can choose to come out of hypnosis at any time. A hypnotherapist can not hypnotise anyone against their will or make an individual act against their natural inclinations whilst in hypnosis - you will remain in full control throughout.

At the end of the session, you will be gently returned to your normal waking state. Most new clients are surprised at how far away the reality of hypnotherapy is from any prior expectation of 'mind control', and find the experience deeply relaxing.
