Linda Bromage PhD Researcher Hypnosis. BSc (hons) Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is the power of focus. When you close your eyes and focus, something extraordinary happens to both the brain and the mind. The rigid boundaries of perception that have held you in place begin to soften. Reality becomes less real and more negotiable. In hypnosis you discover that you are capable of much more than you consciously realise. The purpose of hypnosis is to create and enable the exploration of new awarenesses and new possibilities, and to make the changes that you want..
If you are looking for the cheapest fees charged then I am not for you. If you think that hypnotherapy is a magical 'trance' where hypnotherapist 'makes miracles happen', then I am not for you. Hypnosis is not a trance where the therapist can 'access you subconscious mind and reprogramme you'. If you would like to understand what hypnosis is and the scientific evidence to support this , then please contact me. Hypnosis is a very effective way for you to make the changes that you want to make in your life. It works- but not by the hypnotist 'putting you under' but by you learning and believing self hypnosis and challenging your negative self beliefs.
I am one of very few Hypnotherapists with a first class honours degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy, and have been awarded a PhD Scholarship to further research in Hypnosis from Surrey University. This is the first of its kind in this country. I am a member of the British Society of Experimental and Clinical Hypnosis (BSECH) and a registered dental professional with the GDC.
I have completed a diploma in Scientific Evidence Based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
I am an advanced therapist from the Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis
I teach Hypnosis to dental students and graduates and have a Diploma in Psychotherapy.
My understanding of hypnosis and therapy is evidence based; that is, I look for the scientific evidence behind all that is written and taught with regards to hypnosis.I therefore do not offer past life regression, NLP or any other "branded" or "trademarked" methods.
My experience with all dental phobias is well known. I take referrals for all forms of dental anxieties from practices countrywide.
I treat anxieties, phobias, performance confidence, habit addictions and pain management.
I am very experienced in working with school children and their anxieties.
Are there areas in your life that you feel are out of control? That cause you anxiety? Or maybe there is stress in your relationships or confidence issues in your career?
Hypnosis offers the best therapeutic tool to achieve improved health and well-being. Hypnotherapy integrates biology and psychology to restore the mind/body balance by accessing the client's own inner resources for healing and change. CBT Hypnotherapy utilises the essence of CBT and enhances the behavioural change with hypnosis and self- hypnosis.
Our modern lives are stressful, and continual stress affects the immune system through emotional and/or behavioural manifestations such as fear, anxiety, tension, sadness, anger.
