​​WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?

Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy which, by use of positive suggestion brings about change in the subconscious mind, altering thoughts, feelings and behaviours by use of hypnosis.


Hypnosis is a way of enabling you to feel very relaxed, byfocussing your attention on the hypnotherapist's voice, who, by use of suggestion helps you with the problem/s you would like to improve on or resolve, frequently enlisting your own imagination.


Being under hypnosis is a very pleasant, relaxing, secure feeling, where your body feels very lazy, however, you are totally in control of your mind throughout, and you cannot be 'stuck' in hypnosis. You will normally remember most of the session. 


SO WHAT DOES A HYPNOTHERAPY SESSION CONSIST OF?

Prior to undergoing hypnosis, our initial meeting will be a thorough consultation to find out exactly how I can help you best and your aims for seeking hypnotherapy, including finding 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, after discussing the client-hypnotherapist agreement.  

Following our consultation, I have an approximate plan for our sessions together, however, I like to work flexibly with clients, to enable maximum benefit.


Subsequent hypnotherapy sessions will be approximately 1.5 hours, which includes checking in with how you're feeling, (which can be used in the session), then preparing you for hypnosis by making you comfortable. The hypnosis part of the session is around 1 hour, then I take feedback about how you are feeling, and discuss what would be helpful in the next session.

I will also teach you self-hypnosis as part of our work, so that you are then able to practice (if possible) daily by yourself, in addition to the hypnotherapy sessions you attend.
