What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy uses the power of your subconscious mind to support you in achieving positive change in your life. It is a natural way of resolving any issues that prevent you from reaching your full potential. By reaching a focused state usually through relaxation techniques, a Hypnotherapist is able to speak directly to your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind stores your memories, knowledge and beliefs.
Hypnotherapy is a very personal process and clients provide differing descriptions of what they experience in their hypnotic trance. Many people describe it as being similar to a daydream or meditation where they are very relaxed yet aware of what is going on around them.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session?
A Hypnotherapy session usually lasts for an hour. It will involve gathering some basic information about your medical history, counselling around the issue you would like to be addressed followed by some Hypnotherapy.
Who can be Hypnotised?
Most people can experience Hypnosis successfully. Please note that Hypnotherapy is not suitable for individuals with epilepsy, on anti- psychotic medications or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Will I be in control?
A Hypnotherapist can not tell you to do anything that you do not want to do. You are in control of yourself at all times. If you needed to get up immediately for any reason, you would be able to do this.
How many sessions do I need to have?
Everybody is different and so is their requirements, most problems can be dealt with in one or two sessions, but problems that have many different underlining issues may require more than two sessions, but this will be explained in the consultation.
Where is your practice?
At present I will work with you in your own home and this is reflected in the fees. The majority of people I have worked with feel more comfortable in their own home and can relax easier. Sometimes this is not suitable (young children, noisy pets, etc) so in the very near future I may open a practice in the North Down area to cater for these individuals.
