Janet Mitchell Cert Hyp CS
I'm a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist offering hypnotherapy for a wide range of issues including anxiety, fears and phobias, low self esteem, stress and weight loss. I use a variety of methods to get results specifically adapting my treatment to suit each individual client as everyone is different and will respond differently - each and every session is completely personalised for you.
What to expect at your first session
After an initial telephone conversation or email if you prefer, we will meet for an assessment consultation, lasting up to 90 minutes, to gain an in-depth history of your symptoms and discuss any concerns. During the consultation I will explain what hypnotherapy is and how it works, tailor your therapy specifically for you and advise how many sessions you are likely to need to reach your goal.

Following a consultation to find out the exact nature of your problem, an individual treatment plan will be written, tailored to your needs. The actual treatment starts when the natural relaxed hypnotic state is induced and with the skilful guidance of the therapist you are helped and encouraged to make the necessary changes within your subconscious mind to affect the positive results you want to achieve. All doubts, fears and misconceptions are discussed in order for the therapy to work. Every client's pre-induction talk will be different, but each will be delivered in a warm, friendly manner.
A full explanation is given of hypnotherapy and what it entails as very often people know very little (although most have seen stage hypnosis), but clinical hypnotherapy is not the same thing. With hypnotherapy you are aware of everything the whole of the time, you may, or may not, be able to remember everything afterwards - but at the time you will hear everything that is said.
We are all different - some people go into a very deep trance and remember nothing at all afterwards, others remain in a light trance, but both work equally well. However more often than not people drift into different levels of conscious awareness and remember parts of the experience.
You can never be made to say, or do, anything you don't want to - and if I or anyone else were to give you suggestions that you didn't morally approve of - you would come out of hypnosis. You will never give away any secrets or be made to act in any derogatory way as you are in control, but at the same time you are also very deeply relaxed.
During this relaxed state your subconscious mind is open and receptive to the suggestions given to you providing they are the suggestions that you consciously want to take effect. You will be able to hear everything during the hypnosis session, you'll be aware of outside noises and movements which is perfectly normal because you are in a heightened state of awareness whilst in hypnosis.
I will carry out a Suggestibility Test to see how responsive you are to hypnosis which may involve asking you to visualise certain things. We are all different some people can't visualise because their representational system is more auditory or kinaesthetically inclined, just try to remember or think about or sense the things I am saying.
After the hypnosis session the only differences you may be aware of is that you feel more relaxed than usual and in subsequent sessions you will feel differently about whatever you are being treated for.
Regular hypnotherapy sessions can have lasting effects and be life changing in a number of ways it can help you break bad habits, improve your self-confidence, improve your relationships, achieve your goals, improve the way you think and improve your mental and physical health.
Any client cancelling a treatment with less than 24 hours notice will be charged 50% of the treatment cost
What is Hypnotherapy?
Research has demonstrated that thoughts and emotions directly affect our health and well-being. Hypnosis is a powerful, scientifically proven self-help method that allows you to create a fulfilling and healthy life.
It is completely natural and safe, simple, effective, rapid and powerful and unlike many medications, there are no harmful side effects. When administered by a professionally trained therapist the benefits can be very quick, positive and life changing, but will only work if the client co-operates fully with the process, no-one can be hypnotised against their will or manipulated by a hypnotherapist. You will always remain in control.
Unlike TV shows you may have seen, you will not be put into some sort of trance where you are no longer in control of your actions. You will be deeply relaxed, but aware of what is happening the whole of the time. You are not asleep, but in an altered state of awareness, a pleasant state of deep relaxation which enables beneficial, positive suggestions to be readily accepted into the subconscious mind replacing negative, harmful or unwanted thought processes with more helpful and empowering ones. Just one session can give immediate results for a variety of symptoms.
Is Hypnotherapy Safe?
Hypnotherapy is a safe, alternative therapy and for many people whilst it is not the first treatment they think about when looking for help with a certain condition or to provide support at a certain stage of their life, it is a safe and completely natural way of engaging the power of your own to mind to create the changes you desire. In many cases it is seen as a last resort as many clients may have tried medication and other forms of therapy first without any success before deciding to give hypnotherapy a try.
