Personal Hypnosis Sessions

– Your investment in your health and wellbeing

Hypnosis is a natural trance state (the alpha state) and everyone goes in and out of it a number of time a day and during the night.

What is Hypnosis
Hypnosis is like the relaxed mental state we experience between wakefulness and sleep, indicated by the same alpha brain wave patterns as hypnosis. It is also where we dream at night, whether you remember them or not.

Or when you daydream or your mind wanders off to another time or place – relaxing, thinking, etc. Or, when you’re totally focused, such as watching TV or a movie, studying, driving a car, playing computer games,etc. These are all examples of everyday natural trance or hypnosis.

It is in this natural state the inward focus of the mind increases so that the subconscious mind becomes more receptive and responsive to positive suggestions and ideas. This is the way you can make positive changes much more easily and effectively.

As well as occurring naturally many times each day, hypnosis can be brought about intentionally, usually through focusing exercises and/or relaxation. You can take yourself into hypnosis (self hypnosis) or have a professionally qualified hypnotherapist assist and guide you, helping you achive your goals.

When you’re in hypnosis it is not like being asleep or unconscious (a popular misconception) because you are very aware while you are experiencing it, or it might be like going in and out of a day dream.  You can hear the hypnotherapist’s voice and other sounds, and you are able to come out of hypnosis at any time, if you needed or wanted to.  You can speak, if necessary, and more (answer questions, scratch your nose, etc).  You are in control. But, when you are so relaxed, you’ll probably just want to keep on relaxing and enjoy!

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is simply hypnosis + therapy.

It can powerfully and effectively assist you in many ways to help you make positive changes in your life.

It can help you with your work, your relationships / personal life,  your sport, your health, your learning, your spiritual development, and more.

As the mind and body work as one, suggestions given my your hypnotherapist and accepted by your subconscious can have a very therapeutic effect on both.

Hypnotherapyis like meditation. And while both allow you to achieve similar levels of relaxation, there is a major difference…
  • With meditation – you are usually attempting to “empty” or clear your mind, letting go of everyday thoughts and worries.
  • With hypnotherapy – the hypnotherapist gives you appropriate, positive suggestions, using techniques that can assist you to achieve your goals. So instead of “emptying” your mind, you are powerfully focused on goal orientated suggestions and positive outcomes. .

There are many reasons why we do something which we now no longer want to do. E.g. keep smoking and/or eating, lack motivation or confidence, have a phobia, or have a behaviour issue wewant to get rid of or reduce.  And there are a number of ways of dealing with each of these with hypnotherapy. It is not only a science, it’is also an art.  And the knowledge, experience and the skill of the hypnotherapist can go a long way to ensuring a positive outcome for you.

It is also important that as a client, you maintain a positive outlook about achieving your goal, and be willing to do what it takes to achieve it, is also important.

Many of the issues we deal with are backed up by anecdotal or scientific research.

The reality is that we are all different.  We each respond differently to situations, and so it is with hypnosis. And with Hypnotherapy, it usual takes a much shorter time (i.e. less sessions) than with some other ‘talking’ therapies to make positive and effective change. Some people can achieve their goal within 3-4 sessions, whilst others need more help.  That is part of being the unique person you are.  Therefore change can be very effective, only needing a few sessions so is cost effective.

Hypnotherapy can be used for many things – it has a very broad application base. It has been used for many years with medical treatment – it was accepeted as a viable therapy by the British and American Medical Associsations back in the 1950’s. There is a hypnotherapy clinic for IBS at a hospital in Manachester.

Is there a Guarantee? 

It’s interesting, as most people wouldn’t expect, or ask for, a guarantee with other types of therapy. E.g. Ccounselling, Psychotherapy, etc.  And, if we think about it, we don’t get a guarantee with weight loss and stop smoking products, etc. that we buy from the chemist. Nor do doctors guarantee the outcome of the medication they give out, or surgeons the outcome of the surgery they perform.

There are just too many variables. And so too it is with therapy. 

The outcome of any therapy depends on both the skill and experience of the therapist* and how involved the client is in the process and whether they are ready to change.

We cannot make anyone do something they don’t want to do, or are not ready to do.  It is not a magic wand.

That is why we offer 30 minute FREE, no obligation, consultation. That way you can meet us and ensure you feel comfortable working with us. This is vital whatever the therapy. You can discuss what you want to achieve and get your questions answered, before making an appointment.

Many of the issues we deal with are backed up by anecdotal or scientific research, but not all. However, we know from seeing thousands of clients collectively since 1980, and from other senior Hypnotherapists worldwide, that Hypnotherapy does work.

In our experience it can often bring about faster and more effective results than other therapies.
