Clinical hypnosis can help treat a wide range of physical and psychological issues. It is a completely safe and pleasant state of deep relaxation during which you mind is more receptive to positive suggestions that will help you make the changes necessary to achieve the results you want. Hypnosis is a natural state of altered awareness when the subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions. We all drift in and out of different levels of awareness many times a day.  For example daydreaming, taking a familiar route home or enjoying your favourite  music.

Your first consultation can take an hour and a half. A holistic assessment/fact finding session will take place and what you hope to achieve with hypnosis & other relaxation techniques will be explored and clarified.

A short hypnosis experience will then take place, if you wish. Learning to  relax and being motivated to make changes to achieve your goals is then supported in subsequent sessions and personalised recordings.

By relaxing, thinking positively and picturing your goals, hypnosis can help you to progressively adjust habitual feelings and behaviours.

During hypnosis you remain aware of what’s going on around you and will be able to stop the session at any point should you want to.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is a modern method combining a highly effective talking therapy technique, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with clinical hypnotherapy to bring about positive and lasting changes.

CBT is an evidenced based and comprehensively researched model of therapy recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) which can enable you to manage problems that you wish to address.

Initially you will be helped to look at your old thought patterns and beliefs, then learn new skills and techniques to adjust the way you think, feel and behave. You will also be guided to develop realistic goals that you would like to achieve, asked to carry out home tasks to bring to future sessions plus keep a thoughts diary.
