What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for accessing the subconscious mind - the key to unleashing our potential, changing our unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to our problems and concerns.

Under hypnosis the conscious, rational part of the brain is temporarily bypassed making the subconscious part which influences mental and physical functions, receptive to therapy. During the trance state there is heightened concentration for the specific purpose of maximising potential, changing limiting beliefs and behaviours and gaining insight and wisdom.

Nobody can ever be hypnotized against their will. Even when hypnotized, people still remain in complete control of any suggestions given.

The whole object of clinical hypnosis is to take back control that has been lost and which has therefore resulted in the symptom or the problem.

It is estimated that approximately 85% of people of all age groups will readily respond to hypnosis.

How many treatments will I need?

The length of treatment depends on the problem or symptom and the individual’s circumstances. With some people a problem like nail biting can be successfully treated in one session. Other problems such as panic attacks can take up to 5 or 6 sessions.

The first session usually lasts one and a half hours, with subsequent sessions between one and one and a half hours.

Clinical hypnotherapy can help with the following problems:-
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight issues
  • Pain control
  • Confidence
  • Habit breaking
  • Skin problems
