Hypnosis is the process of guiding a person into a very focused state of altered consciousness and to then talk to their subconscious mind. This part of the mind is felt to be far more powerful than the conscious mind, and it’s the same part of the mind which harbours the anxieties and addictions and habits we wish to change or remove.
In the session, you will be guided into a state of deep relaxation. Once there you will guided through imaginative ideas, stories, metaphors and suggestions which will help you to achieve the changes you desire. You are in control at all times. It is easy, enjoyable and immensely successful.
“Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react, and modify the messages that they body sends to the mind”
The New York Times
Solution based therapy
This technique is designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind. It does not dwell on the problem, it focuses on solutions for the future. It is a collaborative process and the changes happen when you want them to because you are the person to make them happen.
The start of each session is focused on discussing the changes you have made since the last session. What resources and strategies you identify that you have and what goals you want to achieve in the coming weeks and months. By identifying goals in the session you can achieve that week you can then reinforce change in between sessions. Most people find this process really empowering, motivating and enjoyable.
