WHAT IS CLINICAL HYPNOSIS?
Clinical Hypnotherapy aims to tackle a broad range of medical and social conditions for the client, through relaxation and suggestion techniques to ease you into a trance (a state of awake but relaxed concentration) so that after the session you can feel more relaxed that you've felt in many years and ready and able to make easy wished for changes in your life. Be totally reassured - this is NOT stage hypnosis! We enter trance naturally in our everyday lives, such as when day-dreaming on a long drive, or focussing on something interesting. We remain in control and awake throughout. Carmen combines Clinical Hypnosis and techniques from all the main schools of therapeutic approaches to engage your awake mind (e.g. Person-Centered counselling, Gestalt, CBT techniques, NLP, regression etc).
Clinical Hypnotherapy is commonly sought to increase confidence, aid weight management, anxiety and stress related problems, smoking cessation, sleep problems, low mood, IBS, stammering, phobias, school & study anxieties, public speaking, performance (such as exam study / driving test / sports achievement), recovery from injury/illness, tinnitus and more. It can help release creativity. Carmen's own introduction to hypnotherapy many years ago was the successful relief of a deeply ingrained negative habit and low confidence. She continues to use self-hypnosis and visualisation for physical and mental well-being and sports achievement.
If you have any questions about hypnotherapy or its suitability for you or your condition, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can send an email using the contact form (above) or phone 07941 646555.
