”Most people walk through the world in a trance of disempowerment. Our work is to transform that into a trance of empowerment.”
What is Hypnotherapy?
Clinical hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change. Using various relaxation techniques, we will help you reach a state where the conscious part of your mind is relaxed and your subconscious part is more open to suggestion. This state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, you can turn your attention completely inward to find and use the natural resources deep within yourself that can help you make changes or regain control in certain areas of your life.
We will begin with an initial consultation which will last around an hour and a half. Here we will have a discussion about your requirements and goals as well as collecting other personal information such as sleeping patterns, lifestyle information, medical history and medication. It is also a time for us to explain exactly how hypnotherapy works and how many sessions you are likely to need. We will also discuss practical details such as cost, cancellation policy, and confidentiality.
At the next appointment (with the exception of smoking cessation which is a one-off treatment), treatment can begin. It is difficult to say exactly how each session will look as each client and their need is individual, but the following structure will give you some idea of what to expect:
Check-In - We will begin with a welcome chat where you can ask any questions you may have
Induction - We will then lead you into a state of deep physical and mental relaxation
Treatment - Once you are suitably relaxed, we will gently deliver the treatment to your subconscious using techniques and approaches previously discussed and agreed with you, helping you work towards your desired outcomes and goals
Re-orientation - We will then gently bring you back out of hypnosis to full wakefulness
Check-Out - We always leave some time at the end of each session to talk through how you feel your session went. It's a time to discuss your progress and to summarise the session and answer any further questions you may have.
