What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?
Briefly, hypnosis is an altered state of awareness characterised by a pleasant state of relaxation in which individuals allow themselves to enter into, in order for beneficial suggestions to be directly spoken to the subconscious part of the mind. In short hypnotherapy allows for a given therapeutic endpoint, be that, evicting feelings of anxiety, stress, public speaking, weight loss, phobias, addiction to name a few.
What to expect from a hypnotherapy session
As a Hypnotherapist, after determining what your concerns and your clinical history are and your end goal(s), whilst also making sure that you feel safe and comfortable, I will take you to an alpha state of consciousness, in which your breathing and heartbeat slow down and the brain in turn produces alpha waves. This is the same brain state as when you are daydreaming, reading a book, watching TV, driving and arriving at your destination, but not remembering all of the usual landmarks on the way etc. In fact, we spend a high percentage of our daily lives in this state without actually recognising it.
The subconscious mind
The subconscious mind is the source of the majority of our issues and self-beliefs however; it is also a tremendous reservoir of our unrecognised strengths and knowledge. Therefore, it is an amazingly powerful tool with which to rid ourselves of limiting views.
As with most therapeutic treatments, hypnosis will only work if you are prepared to be open minded and willing to make a change. You are the secret to your own success and success depends on the second letter, you. I am here to help you facilitate those changes and guide you to becoming the best version of yourself that you can be. Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for accessing the subconscious mind – the key to unleashing your potential, changing your unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to your problems and concerns.
As a clinical hypnotherapist, I am aware that there are many misconceptions surrounding hypnotherapy, if you have any of these; please take a few minutes to visit my blog. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
