Hypnosis is a deep relaxation state which is effective for Panic attacks, Low self esteem and Motivation, Phobias, Self-hypnosis for relaxation in pregnancy, unwanted habits like nail biting, Smoking or reliance on Alcohol.
Hypnosis is a state of mind which we have all experienced everyday of our lives.
Because we all experience hypnosis before and after waking, it is unusual to be un-hypnotisable. Generally speaking, hypnosis feels relaxing and sleep-inducing. Many clients return to the Centre after specific treatments in order to learn how to self-hypnotise in order to “switch off” and relax.
Because hypnosis is a normal state of mind we can hear all that’s going on around us (albeit distantly sometimes) we will test you for hypnosis so you will definitely know whether you have experienced trance. Once you are in this pleasant state, the therapist can give you unconscious simple suggestions that can help you make the changes you require.
You can be hypnotised lying or sitting down, whichever is most comfortable for you.
You can also be taught self-hypnosis for relaxation in pregnancy, giving birth, and for specific occasions such as job interviews and dental treatment.
It is particularly effective for removing habits such as nail biting, bed-wetting, smoking etc.
Suggestions of ease can be given for one-off situations like board meetings, concerts, wedding nerves and exam nerves.
Sometimes people ask the hypnotherapist to help with complex problems such as jealousy, anger, lack of confidence, inability to form relationships, and phobias.These can be issues which need a deeper approach and may involve you in more intensive work over a longer period of time. Our hypnotherapists at this Centre are very experienced in working intensively in order to get to the root of the problem. During your initial session you will work out what kind of treatment you will need and an approximate idea how long it will take.
Your First Session
On your first session the therapist will take a detailed history and put you into hypnosis. This will take approximately one hour and is vital as preliminary step towards your treatment. Should the therapist believe that an alternative therapy would be more suitable you will be referred within the centre where possible.
