Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened and focused awareness and is a naturally occurring phenomenon. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to endless possibilities for healing, self-exploration, and change. Hypnosis has been known by many different names in different cultures and times, it has been recognised for thousands of years and used for many purposes.
When we enter into a state of hypnosis, we are able utilise thoughts, talents, and experiences in ways not usually available to us. With the guidance of a trained professional, we start to make desired changes in our thoughts, feelings, and perceptions.
Although hypnotic trance is a very natural, peaceful state of mind that most of us experience almost daily, (e.g., while daydreaming, reading, listening to music) it has often been shown in films and television in ways that have been inaccurate and even alarming. But hypnotherapy, when practised by a well-trained, professional, is safe. And it is often quicker than many other forms of treatment whether psychological or medical.
Hypnosis has been used successfully to treat numerous psychological and physical problems and conditions. It also is a very effective technique to help us improve performance in areas such as sports, academics, and vocations. Hypnotherapy has proved highly successful for millions of people for a variety of matters and over the years I have successfully helped my clients with issues including:
Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Phobias Loss & Bereavement Stress Management Eating Disorders
Sleep Difficulties Weight Control Stop Smoking Fertility Relationship Issues Performance Enhancement
Motivation Self Esteem Confidence Building IBS Tinnitus ME Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy, (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) you will experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. Priced at just £49 per session, EMDR helps with a variety of problems, including:
Lack of Motivation
Memories of a Traumatic Experience
Unrealistic Feelings of Guilt and Shame
Fear of Being Alone
Difficulty in Trusting Others
EMDR works by stimulating the left and right sides of the brain using various techniques that may include following the therapist’s fingers back and forth with the eyes, tapping on the hands or listening to left and right audio beats. This comes after an in-depth consultation in which we talk about your background in order to develop a safe place in your mind.
Each session lasts approximately one hour. Many find it helpful to have sessions a week apart, but some clients may prefer to have them just days apart. It’s not possible to say how many sessions are needed before the benefits are felt, whether it’s one or many. Either way, the therapist is trained to guide you through the process and keep you safe.
