Why use Hypnotherapy?
Have you ever wanted to change a habit or become more self-confident or motivated, only to find something within you is resisting change? That's your subconscious, and the fact that your subconscious can create such resistance to change is why we often use Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can help you with... Smoking, Weight control, Stress, Anxiety, Nail biting, Habits, Exam nerves, Low self-esteem, Self-confidence and self worth Social phobias, Irrational fears and phobias, Emotional problems Psychosexual problems, Sleeping problems, Stuttering Enuresis (Bed wetting), Guilt, Obsessions and compulsions Relationship problems... Please note that this is by no means a comprehensive list, simply an example of what hypnotherapy can do for you.
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy applying various therapeutic techniques, such as suggestion, guided imagery and metaphor, while you are under hypnosis. Combining a naturally relaxed yet focused state of mind under hypnosis and subtle therapeutic techniques, hypnotherapy can help you to achieve your goals, enhance your confidence, change unwanted habits and improve your outlook on life for the better.
Hypnoanalysis is an effective choice of therapy to address: irrational fears and phobias, panic attacks, anxiety, relationship difficulties, psycho-sexual problems, lack of confidence, moodiness, sleeping difficulties, inferiority complex, enuresis (bed wetting), emotional problems, and most other problems where there are psychological factors at work. Hypnoanalysis tends to get to the root cause of a presenting difficulty so substitute symptoms are far less likely.
NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is a powerful tool for fast and effective change. Just one or two sessions can eliminate unwanted habits and behaviour and help you adopt positive lifestyle changes. NLP is particularly useful in the treatment of any mind-related conditions such as phobias, addictions or self-esteem issues, and for managing stress.
Educational Kinesiology / Childs play is a sequence of simple and enjoyable movements and exercises, that we use with our students to enhance learning and coordination. These activities make learning fun and the changes in learning and behaviour are often immediate and profound.
It is especially useful for those with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Tourettes. Treatments combining some or all of these methodologies can be very powerful in brining about a desired change.
Frequently asked questions.
What does it feel like to be hypnotised?
There is no real feeling of being hypnotised, it's a natural state of mind, its like just before you drop off to sleep at night, you feel very relaxed and calm and its a very enjoyable feeling.
Will I be aware of what is happening?
Yes, you will always be completely aware and in total control and can exit the state anytime you wish too.
Can I be made to do things I don't want to?
No, Stage hypnotists do perpetuate the myth regarding the power of hypnosis to make people do 'anything'. Hypnosis does lower inhibitions meaning that people in stage shows often do things they would not normally do. But is it really something they do not want to do? Let's remember the person did volunteer, knowing they may well end up barking like a dog or some other harmless stunt.
Is hypnosis dangerous in any way?
No, it is an entirely natural and voluntary state that you can chose to come out of anytime you want.
Can you get stuck in hypnosis?
No, It is a perfectly natural state of relaxation.
Can anybody be hypnotised?
Almost anybody who wants to be hypnotised can be hypnotised. Unfortunately people who are truly mentally subnormal or senile, very young children or people under the influence of drugs or alcohol may not be able to achieve a good hypnotic state.
