Hypnosis has been safely and effectively used for thousands of years for many different ailments.

Physicians, Psychologists, and Hypnotherapists have used hypnosis as a valuable tool in solving such problems as sleep disturbance, concentration and memory, fears and phobias, control of pain, smoking, overeating, alcoholism, anxiety, depression and confidence building.

Hypnosis is best described as a very deep state of relaxation, in other words, a normal, natural, healthy state of mind.

Some examples of a Hypnotic state

  • Have you ever had the experience of driving home while being preoccupied by something and suddenly realising that even though you have arrived safely at your destination, you can’t recall driving past familiar landmarks? It’s as if you were on automatic pilot.
  • Have you ever been unsure whether not you did something or simply thought about doing it? For example, did you mail that letter or did you just think about mailing it?
  • Have you ever been so absorbed in an activity that you were able to block out sounds or make them totally unimportant or not even hear them?
  • Have you ever stared into space, thinking of nothing, and been unaware of the passage of time?
  • Have you ever had the experience of reading a novel or watching a film and being so absorbed that you forgot about your surroundings, almost living the story?

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

A clinical hypnotherapist uses hypnosis to facilitate a state of mental, physical and emotional relaxation in their client.

When you are in hypnosis, your conscious mind – the busy, analytical part of the mind – takes a rest.

Hypnosis allows you to tap into the storehouse of information that lies in the subconscious (sometimes referred to as the unconscious) mind and make positive changes to thought patterns, habits, or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact on you, either mentally or physically.

A Clinical Hypnotherapist is really a specialist in hypnosis, using the healing state of hypnosis to work with problems or conditions that the client wishes to change.

It is perfectly normal to hear external noises and maintain rapport with the hypnotist and remember everything that goes on.

In other words, on awakening, you should feel no different than you did before being hypnotized, but the effects will be there.

Hypnosis is a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Remember, the hypnotherapist needs your cooperation, as all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.

All the hypnotherapist does is guide you into it using hypnotic language.

How does hypnotherapy help?

The ability to reprogram emotional attitudes and reactions is within every human being.

Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to train life-long attitudes, rather than suffer a lifetime of emotional problems that the conscious mind is unable to change.

You can consciously want to change something however subconsciously you may have a belief that is opposing this change.

Hypnosis is a way to get the conscious and subconscious mind to agree on the most positive and resourceful outcome for you.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

The short answer is Yes however, as all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, if you don’t want to be hypnotized, then you won’t be.

A common thing I hear is; “No one could hypnotise me, and I’m too strong minded”.

A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to.

So strong-minded individuals are really good candidates for hypnosis provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.

How many sessions will I need?

On average it will take between 4-6 sessions however it can vary depending on what you are presenting with
