Hypnosis Explained

Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state – similar to a daydream – in which you are in total control but very relaxed in body and mind.

During hypnosis you are awake, and can be more aware of what is taking place than usual. A person in this state can converse quite easily although probably can’t be bothered to move or open their eyes.

To induce you into the state of hypnosis I use my voice along with a hypnosis wheel which you focus your eyes on. You feel mentally and physically relaxed, and your past memories are more easily accessible.

There are three basic types of hypnosis therapy:-

Suggestion therapy
Simple suggestions are made as to how you could think, feel and behave in order to resolve a problem.
Analytical therapy
We find out from your unconscious mind what is causing a problem.
Regression therapy
A way of accessing past memories which are the original cause of the problems bothering you in the present.

I can also give you a personal self-hypnosis tape to clients which reinforces the work we have done during your sessions and provides a way of you being able to regularly relax. I should be able to record personalised CD’s soon as well.
