Sylvan Therapies


‘20 Certificate of Excellence

Hello, I'm Lynn Mitcham and I am a clinical hypnotherapist and counsellor. I use hypnosis and counselling to help you overcome unwanted habits and behaviours, and achieve your full potential. Hypnosis can be very effective when used for any emotional or psychologically-based issue, such as anxiety, stress, depression, lack of confidence and lack of self-esteem and phobias, but also with weight loss and smoking, where the problem often has an emotional basis. Therapeutic hypnosis is very different from stage hypnosis, and you can be assured that you will remain in control throughout. Hypnosis is a form of deep relaxation, an altered state of consciousness. You will remain aware of what is going on around you throughout, but you will be so deeply relaxed that nothing will disturb you. It is a very pleasant state. I operate in a client-centred and solution-focused way, tailoring sessions to the individual client for maximum benefit. Sessions are completely confidential and non-judgemental, and held on-line so that you can relax in your own surroundings.

What do you love most about your job?

I love working with people and helping them through difficult times. The power of the mind never ceases to amaze me, and using hypnosis to help someone overcome a problem that has been holding them back, often for many years, proves just how powerful it can be. What the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve. What you can conceive, you can achieve.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked in the legal profession for about 30 years and was becoming increasingly stressed and disillusioned. I wanted to do something less stressful, something that would enable me to give something back to the world, and by coincidence I came across hypnotherapy. I found I loved doing it, and so I set up Sylvan Therapies in 2014.

Why should our clients choose you?

I work in a client-centred, solution focused way, tailoring sessions to suit individual clients. I hold sessions in comfortable rooms at Bourne Space on Hinton Road in Bournemouth and The Alchemy Health Clinic in Wimborne. I am a member of The National Hypnotherapy Society, The National Counselling Society, the General Hypnotherapy Register, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and the Association of Weight Loss Hypnotherapists, and as such I am regulated by their professional and ethical standards. I also receive regular on-going training. If you are interested in hypnotherapy, I offer an initial consultation and relaxation session for just £15, which enables you to meet with me and discuss your problem before proceeding with a programme of therapy. I am passionate about what I do, and I look forward to helping you.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the hypnotherapist holds.

Your professional hypnotherapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted hypnotherapist today.

Firstly, you'll have a conversation with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree on what methods your therapist will use. Afterwards, the hypnotherapist may lead you into a deeply relaxed state using agreed methods to help you towards your goals. For example, suggesting that you don't want to carry out a certain habit gradually bring you out of the trance.

You are fully in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you don't want to. If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state. Most people expect to be put to sleep or to forget what happened afterwards but the opposite is true. You're fully aware the whole time of what is happening.

This is dependent on both your hypnotherapist and your circumstances. One-off services such as smoking cessation or gastric band hypnotherapy can last around two hours, while a general hypnotherapy session will usually take about an hour.

The duration of therapy will really be dependent on your circumstances and issues. Some people may require a longer-term approach with regular weekly sessions. Your hypnotherapist will let you know how many sessions they feel you might need when you start therapy and will be flexible when it comes to decreasing or extending the number of sessions according to your progress and needs.

There are currently no guidelines in place stipulating the training and qualifications a hypnotherapist must have in order to practice. Industry guidelines recommend that individuals should have completed at least an appropriate diploma or have completed a course that involved a minimum of 450 learning hours, of which 120 hours must have been face-to-face.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their hypnotherapy services.

Hypnotherapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with anxiety, depression, anxiety, PTSD, obesity, addictions, fear of flying, public speaking, stopping smoking, insomnia, weight loss amongst others. When combined with methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), valuable healing work can begin as quickly as one or two sessions.

You might be surprised to hear that hypnotherapy can be delivered remotely over the phone, through an online video chat platform, or with pre-recorded sessions sent by email.
