WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a completely natural state often described as a state of focused and relaxed awareness which you enter many times during the day. You are in hypnosis frequently, when you are concentrating on something of great interest eg: watching TV or movies, playing computer games. Daydreaming and driving over familiar roads or long distances can be other forms of naturally occurring hypnosis.
WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?
Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind, clients are often surprised that they hear what is said to them. You many not feel any different to when you are day-dreaming or relaxing in your favourite arm chair. Usually the overall effect is one of great relaxation – a wonderful break from our stress filled world.
WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way, whilst in hypnosis, is known as hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is very simply…therapy or suggestions, given to you while you are experiencing the state of hypnosis. Positive suggestions, in themselves, can have a very therapeutic effect on the mind and body for self-improvement and/for the release of problems and to assist you to achieve your goals.
In therapy, hypnosis usually involves clients experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate positive suggestions made by the therapist. These suggestions can help a client make positive changes within themselves.
When in hypnosis, you will be totally relaxed, aware and in control at all times whilst powerfully focussing your mind on positive ideas and goal orientated suggestions.
It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis. A hypnotist merely helps to facilitate this experience - hypnotherapy is not about being made to do things, in fact it is the opposite, it is about empowerment.
WHY USE HYPNOTHERAPY?
Most people live normal, healthy lives and yet there may be some aspect they may want to change. For example - getting rid of a phobia, reducing anxiety and stress or removing a habit. Some may want to improve their memory, concentration or self-confidence. Others to manage chronic pain or dental nerves, or have a painless childbirth.
- Clients often say they have tried using will-power or other methods, but have not achieved the changes wanted.
- Changes need to take place at a subconscious level, because this is where our automatic patterns, habits and responses are established. This is where hypnotherapy comes into its own as a powerful and useful therapy.
- More and more the medical and scientific establishment are researching and acknowledging the connection between mind and body, and recognising hypnotherapy as a valuable tool.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
This will be discussed at your initial appointment, which is for approximately 1 ¾ - 2 hrs . It is important to have an assessment before hypnotherapy, to be sure the session is tailor-made to suit your requirements.
Your first appointment will include an in depth assessment and your chance to explain your issue as well as a hypnotherapy session. Many issues can be helped in as few as 1-3 sessions.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
Firstly, during the interview process, any misconceptions a potential client may have about hypnosis should be dispelled.
During the hypnotherapy portion of the session, the client sits in a comfortable recliner chair and relaxes. During hypnosis clients cannot be made to disclose any information without their prior consent or do anything they would not ordinarily do.
The important thing is that clients must want to change some behavioural habit and are highly motivated to do so. They have to want the treatment to work and must establish a good clinical rapport with the therapist in order for it to do so.
