Hypnotherapy is a safe and relaxing treatment which can help with a variety of problems. It taps into the subconscious mind and alters unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. During the treatment you simply need to relax back into a comfy chair and listen to my voice. You will remain in control of yourself throughout the treatment.
A bit more detail:
Stress and Anxiety: We all experience stress and anxiety, and a certain amount is completely normal and actually quite helpful. A deadline approaching for example probably wouldn't get met without those worrying feelings urging us to get it done. If however the stress or anxiety we are experiencing prevents us from doing things we wish we could do, from leading a 'normal' life, or becomes all consuming, then Hypnotherapy can help.
Phobias: Phobias can be very debilitating and usually stem from long term avoidance of an object or situation that causes the fear. People with phobias often think that treatments will involve coming face to face with the object or source of their fear. This is not the case with hypnotherapy. The sessions are designed to help the subconscious mind realise that it does not need to go into the fight or flight response, but instead can remain calm and relaxed whilst feeling safe and in control.
Self Esteem: Hypnotherapy can be a very effective way to gain confidence and build self esteem. Sometimes a confidence boost is all that is needed and other times we may need to find the route for the lack of self esteem. Often as children we can receive negative, untrue messages about ourselves from others, intentionally or not. Our subconscious mind as a child will take these messages in and they will become set there as core beliefs about ourselves. Hypnotherapy can help to change these unhelpful messages into positive ones, so that you can realise and truly believe just how wonderful you are.
Insomnia: Hypnotherapy can significantly help to calm the mind and relax the body. You will learn relaxation techniques as well as being given a recording to listen to at bedtime. These along with the hypnotic suggestions you would have received during the sessions can help you to drift off to sleep with much more ease.
Pain management: Our brains are very much linked with the pain that we experience. Sometimes we need to feel pain, as it is our bodies way of alerting us to something that needs attention. Often however, we can hold on to this pain once the issue has been resolved. The pain is no longer needed, but our brains continue to send the pain messages. Hypnotherapy can tap into these messages and tell them they are no longer needed. I will also teach you pain management/reduction techniques which you can use in your own time.
