I am a qualified hypnotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor and am accredited with the National Counselling Society.
I offer "stand alone" therapy for issues such as smoking, overeating, stress and anxiety and also use hypnotherapy as an integral part of my practice with counselling clients. Block booking of 6 sessions attract a discount.
If the thought of hypnotherapy makes you slightly uncomfortable, you are not alone. Hypnotist's stage shows may well give the impression that hypnosis involves being put into a trance and handing control of your behaviour to another person; for most people that is not a comfortable feeling.
Hypnosis does involve a trance like state that you will almost certainly have experienced before, when you're driving and your mind drifts leaving you with no recollection of parts of the journey for example. It is a perfectly natural state of relaxation which our brain cycles through routinely during the day. A skilled hypnotherapist will help you to reach this state of relaxation and use helpful therapeutic suggestions to encourage desired behaviour changes.
Returning to the driving scenario, when your conscious mind begins to relax your subconscious carries on with the routine task of driving. If there is a sudden emergency situation your conscious brain instantly takes over again and deals with it. Hypnosis is the same, you may relax deeply but you always have the ability to return to the here and now and respond to anything that worries you. The therapist cannot make you do anything you do not truly want to do. But if you want to stop smoking, control food cravings, have more confidence or exercise more hypnotherapy can really help you to make those changes.
