WHAT IS CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness achieved through a state of relaxation, where you are able to open your mind to beneficial suggestions and where you can make use of your imagination to help make positive changes in your life. It is at these deeper levels of the creative consciousness that I can work with you; by-passing blockages, to bring about change in the way you feel, think and behave.
This may have a positive effect on many issues in your life. E.g. Anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, phobias, mental health issues, confidence building and removing stress.
“The positive value of any therapy is obviously based on the ability of a person to change, largely as the result of an encounter with another person or persons. This is accomplished most effectively and permanently when the therapist focuses on influencing the patient's unconscious patterns, which frequently include his values and frames of reference.” Quoted from the book “My voice will go with you”.
In a nutshell, hypnotherapy may generally help with any problem you're finding hard to handle on your own - thoughts and actions you'd like to banish or acquire, or emotional suffering that is too overwhelming or has gone on too long. Some physical problems might also be treated effectively by hypnotherapy.
If you suffer from epilepsy, schizophrenia or clinical depression, you should consult your GP before approaching a clinical hypnotherapist.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BE HYPNOTISED?
Everybody experiences hypnosis differently - it is a unique experience, but the client is always in control. In general hypnosis is a pleasant, relaxing and tranquil experience. While hypnotised you will be aware of all physical sensations around you, perhaps even noticing sounds you wouldn't otherwise be aware of.
Remember way back to this morning when you were half awake and half asleep? You couldn't be bothered to wake yourself up properly but because you weren't really all the way deep down asleep you could appreciate all the comfortable feelings that go with being snuggled down in your bed. Well that's pretty much how it feels to be hypnotised. You're not asleep but in a very relaxed state. With hypnosis there's no right or wrong way to experience it, there's just different ways and they're all good. Many people experience an hypnotic state while driving a car - the journey is often made on "automatic pilot" mode, while the mind is being totally occupied by other matters. I will facilitate a similar state, so the creative part of your mind can focus on beneficial positive changes, free from the restrictions of the critical part of your mind.
