Hypnotherapy

I practice Hypnotherapy in Midhurst, Petworth and London EC1.

How many times have you found yourself knowing what you need to do, but somehow doing the exact opposite?  Problems like this are the result of internal conflicts and until these are resolved you are likely to keep repeating the same old patterns that your know aren’t working, but which seem to resist all your best efforts to change them.

Hypnosis is a very good tool for dealing with these dilemmas because it deals directly with the subconscious mind which is the one that is really running the show.  Many problems can be resolved with a few sessions of hypnotherapy and deep and lasting change can be yours.

Why Hypnotherapy?

There are many benefits to hypnosis.  It is fast, effective and a very pleasurable experience.  Doctors and Psychologists have been conducting research into the effectiveness of hypnosis since the forties and it is proving to be very effective as a stand alone treatment to cure or alleviate many common problems.  It is also very useful in conjunction with other forms of treatment and has been shown to boost the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy.

What can it treat?

You can build your confidence in many areas:

  • Self-esteem
  • Motivation and performance
  • Public speaking
  • Facing changes positively
  • Interviewing
  • Relationships

You can also reduce unwanted habits or symptoms:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Weight
  • Cravings
  • Fears and phobias
  • Exam or driving test nerves.

What is it?

Hypnosis involves relaxing deeply and focusing on your inner experience.  With the help of the hypnotherapist you will be able to access your subconscious mind and resolve the inner conflicts which are at the root of many problems.  It is a very pleasant experience and most people feel rested and energetic after a hypnotic session.  You will certainly be able to go about your normal day.

Going into a trance is something that you learn to do with the help of the therapist.  It gets easier and quicker each time you do it and you can learn to do it by yourself.

What is involved in a hypnotherapy treatment?

The first session will involve taking a brief about the issue you want help with.  This is fairly detailed and is used to tailor a treatment very specifically to you.  You will also be taken through a relaxation process so that you can experience a trance and I can make an assessment of what will work best for you.

How many sessions you will need depends on many factors but I would normally suggest at least two sessions  Some problems are more straightforward than others and people also like to work at different paces so there is no easy answer to this question.  However, most people notice improvements immediately and if you are not experiencing benefits by the third session, I would suggest alternative treatments or therapists.

What if I am not sure hypnosis is for me?

If you are not sure if hypnosis is for you I can offer you a free telephone consultation where we can deal with any concerns and questions and I can assess your suitability for this form of therapy.

You can book on a session by session basis although for some issues such as weight loss I would recommend a short course.
