What is Hypnotherapy?
Firstly, it is important to note that the phenomenon of hypnosis is a natural state of mind, which means that virtually every person has the natural capacity for response to hypnosis. Hypnosis is simply a natural state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation, along with a heightened state of awareness. Hypnosis allows the unconscious mind to become more aware of and more receptive to inner emotions and issues together with positive thoughts, ideas and concepts. The important issue to remember here is that Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique which aids the client to harness their own willpower and at all times the client is in full control of themselves and their wellbeing. Indeed Therapist and Client work together to bring about the clients desired outcome. It is the therapists role to create the conditions and resources for the desired change. As your therapist, its my job to ALWAYS ensure that you feel safe and secure and will guide and support you throughout the whole experience.
This change of consciousness brought about by hypnotherapy is extremely comfortable and relaxing, and is experienced naturally by everyone in their daily lives. Everyone has experienced this trance like state, (although they may not have realised it) when daydreaming, or even reading and driving. Have you ever driven to a familiar destination and realised you cant remember any of the journey? Or have you ever been so caught up in a TV programme, a book, or a film and discover you have lost track of time, or not realised that someone has been talking to you? Hypnotherapy is a very useful tool in the treatment of a large number of physical and emotional conditions
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy uses a range of techniques intended to improve psychological and behavioural issues experienced by people of all walks of life. As a trained therapist, I use therapeutic approaches to improve emotional or psychological issues. The focus is upon dealing directly with the clients emotional and psychological issues. This is done by careful evaluation, initially talking this through and by working together, both therapist and client, to bring about the desired outcome.
My job as your therapist, is to bring about the supportive conditions to help you to grow, learn, heal and empower yourself. Because sensitive topics are often discussed during psychotherapy, therapists are expected, and legally bound, to respect patient privacy and client confidentiality.
