The human mind is both powerful and extremely complex. We all have a conscious and a sub-conscious mind, and Hypnotherapy can provide access to the sub-conscious area where all of our life experiences are stored.
By using the deep relaxation techniques used in hypnotherapy we can help change negative thought patterns and learned behaviours. This in turn will improve quality of life and help to overcome both physical and emotional issues.
Many people have asked us whether they will be made to do or say something that they do not feel comfortable with, or have control over. This is absolutely not the case. Whilst undergoing hypnotherapy you will continue to be fully in control of the process and aware of your surroundings and can stop the session at any time.
Hypnotherapy can be provided as a one off session or a course of treatments depending on presenting issue.
Typically Hypnotherapy can help with the following issues:-
Confidence and Self Esteem
A lack of self confidence and low self esteem can hold people back and prevent them from enjoying life to the full and being able to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Hypnotherapy can help restore confidence, even when self esteem seems to be at its lowest, and enable the client to move on in a positive way.
This covers a range of conditions from short term anxiety that may be attributed to specific issues, to generalised chronic anxiety lasting many months. Hypnotherapy can successfully identify the problem and provide a course of treatment alleviating physical symptoms, enhancing energy levels, and giving peace of mind.
Regardless of what area of life causes stress, if it is not addressed and dealt with, it literally builds up within oneself leading potentially to health problems, both physical and emotional. Hypnotherapy can help identify and relieve the causes of stress leading to a healthier future.
A specific treatment aimed at people who can function normally in most areas of their life, but have an acute fear of something, or certain situations. When this fear impacts on quality of life, Hypnotherapy can be used to address it. Common phobias include spiders, flying, enclosed spaces, thunderstorms and many more.
If a history of dieting and exercise programmes do not seem to be providing results, hypnotherapy can offer a way to reprogramme your thinking. Your attitude and relationship with food will change, allowing weight loss to be achievable.
Most people are aware that smoking is unhealthy and costly, but it is not always easy to stop. If all the traditional methods have failed to work, then Hypnosis can access your subconscious in order to change the way you view your smoking habits, leading to a greater chance of success.
