What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe, natural state of relaxed, focused attention in which the unconscious mind is more accessible and open to change. During a trance state we are able to explore and access the creativity and resourcefulness of the unconscious, create positive change, learn about our habits, beliefs and behaviours, including the barriers that prevent us from reaching our potential.
The application of hypnosis in therapy is underpinned by a robust psychotherapeutic framework, including cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic approaches, enabling a safe, structured, goal-orientated and ethically sound approach to addressing a range of issues and symptoms. The number of sessions may vary according to the issue and the individual.
Some of the issues worked with include;
Anxiety, stress, fears and phobias
Trauma and abuse
Confidence, self esteem and identity
Symptom management and chronic pain management
Body image issues
Sports Hypnosis and performance enhancement
Habit based behaviours
Creative development e.g. writers block.
