WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?


Hypnosis is a way of helping you to feel very relaxed, byfocussing your attention on the hypnotherapist's voice, who makes suggestions to help you with the problem/s you would like to improve/resolve, frequently enlisting your own imagination.


Being under hypnosis is a very pleasant, relaxing, secure feeling. You are totally in control of your mind, and cannot be 'stuck' in hypnosis.


WHAT DOES HYPNOTHERAPY CONSIST OF?

Prior to undergoing hypnosis, our initial meeting will be a thorough consultation to find out exactly how I can help you best, as well as to

find out more about you as a person, and to answer fully any questions

you may have. This normally takes approximately 45 minutes. I will then begin our initial hypnotherapy work.


Subsequent hypnotherapy sessions will be around 1.5 hours, which includes preparing you for hypnosis by making you comfortable, the hypnosis part of the session (approximately 1 hour), then taking feedback about how you are feeling, and discussing our work for the next session.

Following our consultation, I usually have an idea for our sessions together, however, I am very open to working flexibly, to allow for maximum benefit for my client. I will also teach you self-hypnosis, so you that can continue to be in control of your problem yourself.
