A skilled Clinical Hypnotherapist uses suggestions in hypnosis to enable you to make positive changes in your life. Whilst in a relaxed state, your unconscious mind is more receptive to these beneficial suggestions. This type of natural therapy is one of our oldest and safest techniques and most people enjoy the feeling of deep relaxation they experience during hypnosis. It is a feeling we have all experienced, similar to daydreaming or dozing. In fact, we have all been in a hypnotic trance whenever we have ‘lost’ ourselves in a good book or film.
The unconscious mind is always working on our behalf, but some experiences can result in faulty learning. Hypnosis allows the therapist to access the unconscious mind in order to unlearn these unhelpful and unhealthy thoughts and behaviours and to relearn and reprogramme new ones. Our conscious mind, which is the waking, decision-making part of our mind, can be sidestepped in hypnosis, so that positive suggestions can be placed into the unconscious mind, to make changes on awakening. Clinical Hypnotherapy is medically accepted to benefit many conditions, especially those which are a result of formed habits, accumulated stress and unresolved past events. Changes can be long-lasting and often permanent.
Hypnotherapy is a very valuable therapy, enabling you to develop your own strengths. It encourages you to take time to learn about yourself and identify your own inner resources. Even basic relaxation techniques can result in positive changes in many areas of your life. Quite simply, it enables you to bring your life into balance and take control. So, if your life is affected by unwanted behaviours, emotions or physical symptoms, then hypnotherapy could help you to change your life for the better.
The British Society for Clinical Hypnosis, the national, professional body of which I am a full member suggests,
“A hypnotic state occurs normally in everyone when certain physiological and psychological conditions are met, and with the assistance of a skilled hypnotherapist it is possible to use this state to make deep and lasting changes to thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Our promise is to ensure you receive the best possible treatment from therapists armed with the latest techniques in modern hypnotherapy.”
