Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in psychotherapy by a professionally trained, certified practitioner. As my client you will be gently guided to experience a pleasant state of deep relaxation with a heightened sense of self awareness & control, allowing you to tap into your own inner resources to make the positive changes you desire.

Hypnosis can be especially helpful in promoting physical, emotional & psychological wellbeing & improve your quality of life. For example, your unwanted habits can be removed & replaced with desired healthy thoughts & behaviours, or destructive messages from your past dealt with & irrational fears removed.

Hypnotherapy is often used in conjunction with conventional medicine alongside other therapies & treatments to relieve stress & control pain - increasingly GPs & other medical professionals are recommending it to patients. With a background in nursing I have a strong professional ethic to work as “complimentary” to conventional disciplines.

Hypnosis being “a wakeful state of focused attention & heightened suggestibility with diminished peripheral awareness” no-one can be hypnotised against their will nor forced to say or do anything they do not want to.

Hypnotherapy is completely natural & safe, there are no unwelcome side effects when managed by a trained & skilful therapist, the benefits can be long lasting & are often permanent. Both adults & children can enjoy the positive effects.

    As this is not an exhaustive list you may like to contact me to discuss other areas or issues that might be responsive to hypnotherapy. I can then work with you to create & agree a specifically tailored programme for your personal requirements.

    As an Integrated Therapist I also use other non hypnotic techniques such as Neuro Linguistic Programming, Thought Field Therapy & am a qualified Life Coach & Reiki Practitioner.

The latter can be contacted to verify my qualifications & the professional ethics & standards within which I work.
