Hypnotherapy is a fast-acting listening and talking therapy that combines various tools tailored to the client’s personality and needs to achieve a specific outcome.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session?
There are different types of hypnotherapies and different ways of hypnotising someone.
First, I offer a free 30-minute consultation to talk with me to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree on what methods I will use.
After this, the hypnotherapist may: lead you into a deeply relaxed state – most people feel refreshed and wide awake after a session.
You are totally in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you do not want to.
If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state.
**Hypnosis does not work if you do not want to be hypnotised**
Whatever the feeling, hypnotherapy can offer effective, natural treatment without any unpleasant side effects.
Common issues which hypnotherapy can help: ·
People can suffer from low self-esteem or obsessive thoughts about someone or something. For example, they may not be able to rid their minds of the idea that a partner is unfaithful or suffering from an illness despite medical reassurance. Hypnotherapy can help them banish such obsessions.
People can suffer from various distressing feelings such as panic attacks, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, anger or inadequacy. Whatever the feeling, hypnotherapy can offer effective, natural treatment without any unpleasant side effects.
People often experience an irrational fear of a variety of insects, animals, objects or situations. Hypnotherapy is renowned for its effectiveness in helping sufferers overcome these distressing and inhibiting conditions.
People can find themselves in the grip of habits or patterns they seem unable to control, from nail-biting or smoking to more deep-seated compulsions. Hypnotherapy can help them overcome such habits.

Advantages of Hypnotherapy
Another advantage is that its effects may last for the rest of your life!
I would not use hypnotherapy if you have psychosis or certain types of personality disorder, as it could make your condition worse.
Please check with a GP first if you've got a personality disorder.
Look for a hypnotherapist who is a member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) or the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis.
To be a member of either of these organizations, a hypnotherapist must have a number of hours of approved training in hypnotherapy.
In most cases, accredited, doctoral-level practitioners of alternative - complementary health care, such as traditional Chinese medicine, may also be approved for membership.
Of course, in addition to looking at qualifications, you should also find a hypnotherapist with whom you feel confident and comfortable in a therapeutic relationship.
