Whenever I mention that I am a hypnotherapist I usually get the comment “so are you going to hypnotise me and have me clucking like a chicken?”
This is in fact stage hypnosis and is very different to Clinical Hypnotherapy, which helps many problems both physically, emotionally and psychologically.
Have you ever driven somewhere only to get there and realise that you don’t actually remember driving? or you are reading a book and you don’t hear someone talking to you? these are states of hypnosis. We are in a mild trance but always in control. You know that your mind will instantly become alter if someone stepped in the road when you are driving or the doorbell rang while you were deep in a book.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is the same, you are gently put into a relaxed state where your conscious mind can be bypassed (the logical side of your mind) and your subconscious can be accessed to help make the changes you want in your life. You are in full control at all times and cannot be made to do anything you don’t want to do. You will leave feeling calm and relaxed which is a therapy in itself
It must be stressed that a person cannot be hypnotised unless he or she is willing to co operate
Hypnotherapy can help with many common problems including anxiety and stress, weight loss, stopping smoking, fear of flying, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Child birth, sleeping and more
I am a specialist in child hypnotherapy and have helped many children to conquer bedwetting, separation anxiety, sleeping difficulties, behaviour problems, learning and exams, tics and habits and many more
A hypnotherapy course is usually made up of an initial free half hour consultation followed by a number of sessions. If we are both happy that we would like to work together the next session will be a short discussion and then we will begin the hypnotherapy. The number of sessions depends on the individual and will be discussed in the free consultation/
I hold a number of workshops throughout the year, including Stress Management workshops and Hypnotherapy for child birth Workshops. Dates and times vary. Please contact me to find out more or check out my Hypnotherapy Workshop page
