Hypnotherapy utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behavior.
Your therapy programme will be tailored to help you identify your own end goals and offer positive support as you work towards them.
Part of your hypnotherapy session will involve hypnosis, to facilitate you entering a calm and deeply relaxed trance state. This experience will feel similar to daydreaming or meditation and is a perfectly natural situation we enter into many times a day without even noticing.
During trance, skilled relaxation techniques are utilised to achieve a heightened state of awareness. Your conscious mind is relaxed while the subconscious part of your mind is stimulated and focused to receive positive suggestions. Trance sessions will allow you to focus on the detail of plans and targets previously discussed in the consultation room. It is a creative opportunity to develop and enhance ideas and discover solutions.
It is important to note that Hypnotherapy does not cause you to lose control. You can open your eyes and come out of trance at anytime you choose. You will continue to be aware of the sounds from the environment around you, but will feel less interested in them as your focus will be elsewhere.
With regular practice, a profound level of relaxation can be achieved which will obviously have enormous benefits in terms of reducing stress levels and developing a confident and independent ability to face problems and find positive solutions.
Only part of a hypnotherapy session involves trance. The conversations with your therapist are a vital part of helping you to achieve the correct focus on your life and appreciating where you want to be and how to get there.
It is so important to recognise that you can have a choice in the way you think. Having identified your preferred future goals, small achievable steps can be planned that you will feel increasing confident will take you exactly where you wish to be.
