WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy is a technique used that relaxes the mind and body allowing
direct communication with the subconscious mind. In an hypnotic state the
subconscious mind is highly responsive to suggestion and direction. Changes
can be achieved in just one session using techniques that reprogram old
thought patterns that are subconsciously influencing our day-to-day lives. Working with your own subconscious mind, implementing hypnotherapy techniques, we get directly to the root cause of your issue. We review key moments in your life where you created self-limiting beliefs, negative patterns of behaviour and change those to new, healthier systems of thinking.
Hypnotherapy is a form of neuroscience that changes the neural pathways in your brain. When you experience negative and stressful emotions you go into what is called a high-beta brain frequency, commonly known as the fight or flight response. Because of our highly stressful, modern lives we spend a lot of time in beta-frequency, which impacts us both emotionally and physically. In a hypnotherapy session I use techniques to bring you into what is called alpha-frequency that is a state of relaxation and theta-frequency when your body is asleep but your mind is awake. In these frequencies it is much easier for your brain to process information as the conscious mind is less active, dropping below its analytical and logical thinking allowing us to create deep, long lasting and profound change.
This incredibly quick way of working can be effective in just one session for things like quitting smoking, fears and phobias. Up to three sessions may be required for deeper issues such as anxiety, depression and other mental health issues and addictions.
The techniques I practice are a combined therapy that uses the principles of Hypnotherapy, NLP, Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies.
