Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy

Hypnotherapy, used within a psychotherapeutic framework, is clinically proven to be a beneficial and lasting therapy for change.

 

If you have a behaviour, habit, negative feeling or state of mind you wish to change, then hypnotherapy may be the answer for you.

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy. It utilises our subconscious and the power of suggestion to promote positive change in our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat emotional and mental health problems.

Healing using trance states has been utilized by human beings probably as long as people have populated the earth. In every culture throughout the world trance states are evident in healing rituals such as hymns and chants, dances, prayers or meditations. These rituals are arguably the oldest form of psychological therapy. Today we call such states hypnosis, and using psychological and psychotherapeutic techniques whilst in the trance state constitutes hypnotherapy.

About Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is defined by UKCP (2009) as a process “to help clients gain insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding of their motivation, and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping or bringing about changes in their thinking and behaviour. Psychotherapy involves exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and relevant events, sometimes from childhood and personal history, in a structured way.”

Applications of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can be useful for the treatment of emotional and psychological disorders, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings as it addresses the subconscious mind where the root cause of such disorders may be accessed. Usually the person is taught to relax and the power of the their own imagination is enhanced with a wide range of therapeutic techniques such as storytelling, metaphors, symbols, direct and indirect suggestions resulting in beneficial change. Analytical techniques may also be employed when presenting conditions are deemed to be concerned with repressed memories from the past.

Applications Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy can help people in a range of situations. For example, it may benefit someone who has overwhelming feelings of sadness or helplessness, is anxious or depressed, is at risk of self harming, has issues with focus and procrastination, suffers from drug dependency and much more. Psychotherapy is often referred to as “talking therapy” and often involves talking through emotional difficulties. I assist in helping you to express your thoughts and feelings and exploring anything of importance.

Anyone Can Benefit from Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy

I believe it is true to say that virtually everyone can benefit from Hypnotherapy. We all have issues that affect our everyday lives. It is amazing how many of these conditions can be improved or eradicated by simple therapeutic interventions. The power of hypnosis can facilitate the person to change their thinking and view the world (including any challenges they may be facing at the time), from different perspectives resulting in more positive responses. These new responses can be the difference in keeping or eliminating an unwanted habit.

Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy Sessions

Unlike many other psychological or psychotherapeutic therapies, Hypnotherapy is generally considered to be a somewhat short-term approach where beneficial change, if it is going to happen, should become apparent within relatively few sessions. This is why I choose to use hypnosis in one to one and group therapy as it can quicken positive change.
