Laura Ferguson - New Day Therapy, BSc (Hons), Dip Hyp CS
Hi, my name is Laura, and I am a freelance Hypnotherapist who runs New Day Therapy based in Livingston. I am fully qualified, accredited and registered with The National Hypnotherapy Society.
Hypnotherapy can be life changing for some and it is used by many people to help with certain areas of their lives in which they need some direction.
Hypnosis works by altering the consciousness whilst in a trance like state, but still being fully alert. I like to describe it as being similar to daydreaming, or like getting lost in a book or a film, where any noises around almost disappear whilst the client allows themselves to focus on the sound of my voice.
Problems worked on using hypnosis can be reduced or fully eliminated with successful hypnotherapy by helping the person fall into a deeply relaxed state, intensifying their concentration levels and increasing responsiveness to suggestion to make beneficial changes in the individual's thought pattern, psychological state or behaviour.
