What is Hypnosis?
Having trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist with Psychotherapy and also as an advanced EFT Practitioner, I combine these powerful methods to help people clear limiting beliefs, habits and anxieties. I am also a Hypno-analyst which aims to discover and resolve the root cause of problems in someone's present day life. I am registered with the Association of Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy and EFT International. I offer Hypnotherapy online via Zoom.
Hypnosis is a natural state which our mind enters several times a day. It's when we have a single focused attention on an idea or concept using visualisation and words and over time this becomes a new program for our minds to follow. So a bit like using day dreaming.
In hypnosis you are totally in control and still hear everything going on around you. You can also come out of hypnosis anytime you like, just by opening your eyes, so you can't be stuck or be made to do anything you don't want to. You have free will at all times.
Sometimes when watching a sad or funny film you may find yourself laughing or crying. This is because the mind becomes focused on what you are watching and reacts as if it's really happening. This is good example of how the imagination can influence how your body reacts. Also if you wake up scared or sweating from a bad dream, the mind has perceived the situation as real and the body has reacted. Even though you know it was a dream, the mind thought the threat was real.

What Happens During Your First Session
Your first session is a Free initial consultation which will last around 30 minutes. During your consultation you will have a chance to discuss your problem area and to establish the goals of your therapy. We will then arrange further sessions according to your needs but there is no pressure to sign up. We will also decide how many sessions may be required and during subsequent sessions we work on your desired outcome. Session times vary depending on what you are working on and can be between 1 - 2 hours.
