Hypnosis is natural. Hypnotherapy is simply an induced state of alertness of mind, accessed by relaxation. In everyday life, a similar state of mind is achieved naturally, for example through daydreaming, intense concentration, distraction, and during sleep.

Hypnotherapy uses your subconscious mind, with the power of suggestion for beneficial change. A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis to give relevant, positive beneficial suggestions to help an individual bring about the change they desire. Although hypnotherapy is not the same as sleep (the individual will still have awareness and control), hypnotherapists often require the individual to be in a deeply relaxed state to enable them to use their imagination fully. For this reason, it’s imperative that the individual feels completely comfortable with their hypnotherapist. Hypnosis is a different state of consciousness from being awake or asleep, and many people compare the deep, relaxed state of hypnosis to daydreaming.

Hypnotherapy can generally help with most emotional problems an individual is finding hard to cope with, and some physical problems can also be effectively treated with hypnosis too, such as IBS and insomnia. As a hypnotherapists I will often combine hypnosis with counselling techniques to benefit individuals. The techniques used will depend on the issue the individual is seeking help for.

The therapist simply provides instructions and guides the client to refocus their consciousness on specific thoughts, ideas, images, and feelings. It is often said that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. What this means is that when you enter a state of hypnosis you do so of your own free will. You are not under the power of the hypnotherapist. You are fully aware and fully able to "wake up

There are many popular myths and misconceptions about general hypnosis and we can attribute this misinformation to the circulation throughout the media containing absurd claims about hypnosis. These pieces of misleading information are contradicted by scientific studies on the subject. You may still be a bit sceptical about hypnotherapy, but bear in mind that the British Medical Association and the American Medical Association endorse it. Hypnotherapy is a proven, safe and effective strategy for overcoming a number of issues.

Many people try to fix things like stopping smoking or losing weight themselves but often find they keep stumbling and return back to the old behaviour within a matter of months or even days. The struggle is hard and the battle is lost because the changes that had planned to be undertaken were only made in the conscious mind.

Since all our thoughts, behaviour and beliefs are guided by our subconscious mind, it is there that the root cause can be determined and beneficial change can begin.

Many clinical studies have shown hypnotherapy is a successful method helping people to lose weight, stop smoking, manage stress and anxiety, remove phobias and fears and the list goes on. It is also the only alternative therapy approved by the NHS for IBS and soon, hypno-birthing.

Confidence and Self-esteem

Confidence can effect many aspects of our life whether it be progression in an interview or presentation to social situations and meeting people.  Self esteem is about our own sense of self worth; it is how we value ourselves and how important we feel we are. Confidence is about having faith in our abilities.  Hypnotherapy helps increase confidence and self esteem by re-aligning negative thought processes, eliminating self doubt and improving your self image, creating a more positive thought process, so that your self esteem and confidence just continue to grow and grow.

Stress & Anxiety

Hypnotherapy is very powerful with regards to both stress and anxiety, allowing your mind and body to relax and it teaches your subconscious mind to remain calm and in control when encountering stressful conditions. 

The number of sessions depends on the cause of the stress and the client’s individual circumstances. It is often the case that only three or four sessions are required.

People with IBS have a bowel that over-responds to stress (so instead of simply emptying the bowel when stressed it spasms) and also is hypersensitive and so the pain threshold is lowered.

Hypnotherapy is an ideal treatment for IBS for the following reasons:

  • It is excellent at lowering stress and anxiety levels
  • It is powerful and effective at pain reduction – very effectively removing the perception of pain.

The number of sessions depends on the cause and degree of the stress and anxiety and the client’s individual circumstances. As a guide, usually about four sessions are required. £30 per session

Frequently Asked Questions and Misconceptions

Will I lose control?

One aspect of hypnosis that is commonly misunderstood is the thought that the client is not in control of the process. In fact, the client remains in control due to their unconscious boundaries which protect their thought process and emotions during the trance state.  

What does hypnotherapy feel like?

Hypnotherapy is an individual experience but people typically feel very relaxed. Some people report temporary feelings of heaviness, lightness or tingling as they are so relaxed.

Is it possible to get stuck in hypnosis

No, you can come out of hypnosis whenever you want, you are in control. 

Will I lose consciousness

No, you will be aware of your surroundings and in control at all times. Hypnosis is like daydreaming so you can come back to full awareness at any time.
