Hypnotherapy Services

In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggesstions made by the therapist. These suggesstions help people make positive change within themselves and their lives. Long gone are the days when hypnosis was seen as waving watches and controlling peoples minds. In a hypnotherapy session, you are always in control and you are never made to do anything. It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis. A hypnotist merely helps to facilitate your experience and get you on the right track – hypnosis is not about coercion – it is about empowerment. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does involve the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, with focused concentration upon the therapists voice. In this state of mind, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed. The therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptions to the client, the seeds of which become firmly planted. The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as Hypnotherapy. As such, hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-program patterns of behavior within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative behaviours, thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. As the body is released from conscious control during the relaxed, trance-like state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated. Hypnosis can often be "the missing link" which actions and cements life long positive change and progress.
