Hypnosis is completely natural and powerful

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state. It is really about concentrating your attention to the extent that you forget about other things going on around you. We all do it, all of the time without even noticing. Like when we daydream, or when you get lost in a book or movie (and someone could call our name or talk to us and we may not even notice) or when driving the car while not really thinking about what we are doing.

When we get into these states we have created self-hypnosis. You are in total control but you have let yourself focus your attention on one thing. Often you are then very relaxed in body and mind yet you can pull yourself back to an everyday state of attention at will. This is hypnosis. For the benefits of therapy we guide you into this state on purpose as then you’ll have greater access to your unconscious mind and additionally you are likely to be more relaxed too.

Hypnosis is not sleep
The important thing is that HYPNOSIS IS NOT SLEEP.  Many people have the misconception that they are just going to sit in a comfortable chair and go to sleep for an hour or so, then wake up with all their problems magically resolved.  Not so!  Hypnosis requires your commitment and input from both of us.

We don’t do stage hypnosis
You’ve probably seen stage hypnosis at some time. Well, clinical hypnotherapy is not the same.  If you are watching someone who has been hypnotised on stage, it may look as though they don’t know what’s happening to them.  In truth, even though they have allowed themselves to be hypnotised, they are totally aware of what they are saying or doing, and they are choosing to follow the hypnotist’s instructions, in order to satisfy an urge to have the experience and be a ‘Star’ for a short while.  With hypnotherapy, the main difference is that you are working to resolve an issue that is troubling you or holding you back in your life. That is what you are choosing to do.

You are always in control
When engaging in hypnosis you can never be made to say or do anything you don’t want to and if I or anyone else were to give you suggestions that you didn’t morally approve of, you would simply reject it and come out of hypnosis. You will never reveal any information involuntarily or be made to act in an inappropriate way. You are always in control, but at the same time you are usually very deeply relaxed.

Whilst you are in hypnosis, your subconscious mind is open and receptive to the suggestions given to you, providing they are the suggestions that you consciously want to take effect.  You will be able to hear everything during the hypnosis session and you’ll be aware of but not concerned with the outside noises and movements. You are not asleep.

Afterwards
After the session is finished, the only difference you may be aware of is that you feel more relaxed than usual, and you will begin to feel differently about your issues.  When you leave the session you will be able to drive or go straight back to work or do whatever you need to do.
You will probably remember almost everything that has been said, either by yourself or by me.  More importantly, your unconscious mind will have heard absolutely everything in the session and will have started to make the necessary changes to reframe or remove the negative patterns and limiting beliefs that have been stopping you from being successful and having the life you want.
Practice makes perfect, so you will find that every session of hypnosis is at least ten times more powerful that the previous one.   After your session you will feel lighter, brighter, very much more confident and have more energy and enthusiasm than you thought possible.  Then you will start to notice how different you feel and act without you having to force yourself. You will have changed from within.

Hypnotherapy with a highly-trained and experienced therapist really can impact your life.

How does it happen
To induce you into the state of hypnosis I simply use my voice while you follow along with what I’m saying. We’ll only start the process after you fully understand what we are doing and what your part in it is and when you feel comfortable with me guiding you in this. Once your in hypnosis you’ll feel mentally and physically relaxed, your past memories will be more easily accessible and it will be easier to make the changes you desire from this state.
