FAQs

I’m not really sure what Hypnosis is?

Hypnosis is a natural state you enter many times a day. It means your conscious mind is relaxed and your unconscious mind is more accessible. Hypnosis simply relaxes your conscious mind allowing for beneficial suggestions to enter your unconscious mind to make the changes you desire. It is a pleasant feeling of natural deep relaxation and is completely safe with no side effects.

Why is Hypnotherapy so effective?

If you have tried to fix an issue on your own and not succeeded you will know how hard it is. This is because you will have tried to fix the issue with your conscious mind (which is where will power is). But the change may not stick because the unconscious mind (the greater part of your mind) has not been involved. Many people try Councelling, CBT, psychotherapy, groups or sheer will-power to fix their issue but it simply isn’t enough. Something in your unconscious hasn’t ‘clicked’ and you are stuck. Hypnotherapy seeks co-operation from your unconscious mind and change happens much more easily and quickly with your whole mind committed to change.

What can Hypnotherapy help with?

Hypnotherapy can be used in two ways. To remove things we don’t want or to give us things that we do. Some of the things you don’t want might include unwanted habits like overeating, stress and anxiety or addictions such as smoking and sugar. Some of things you do want might be confidence, better sleep, help with interviews, exams, study or sporting performance. One of the best uses of Hypnotherapy I offer is to help with depression which is more in your control than you could ever imagine. There are many emotions that can sabotage your happiness or ability to function well but the main ones I come across are; overwhelm, guilt, fear, insecurity, self-doubt, worry, hopelessness, inadequacy, disappointment and lack of self-esteem. Hypnotherapy can ease of these things and make you feel better.

Can Hypnotherapy help children?

I offer Hypnotherapy for children age 5+ because I have been specially trained to do so. Children’s issues can be stressful for the whole family and it is often difficult to find help or there is a long waiting list. I help children with sleep, eating and anxiety issues. I use metaphoric story-telling and waking hypnosis rather than trance with children. They are excellent at taking on positive suggestion due to their inquisitive and creative minds.

How many sessions will I need?

With the integrated techniques that I use, many issues can be treated in one or two sessions. Some issues will take longer but we will discuss this during your initial consultation.

How confidential is the treatment?

Trust is absolutely key to my work. The content of your sessions and personal details are strictly confidential and you can have complete confidence.
