About Hypnotherapy

There are many forms of psychological therapy but Hypnotherapy is distinctive in that it attempts to address the client’s subconscious mind.  To be in a relaxed state, frequently enlists the power of the client’s own imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques from story telling, metaphor or symbolism (judged to be meaningful to the individual client) to the use of direct suggestions for beneficial change.  Analytical techniques may also be employed in an attempt to uncover problems deemed to lie in a client’s past (referred to as the ‘there and then’) or therapy may concentrate more on a client’s current life and presenting problems (referred to as the ‘here and now’).  It is generally considered helpful if the client is personally motivated to change.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by reducing unhealthy stress and anxiety and addressing the paralysing symptoms that hold people back from fully living and enjoying life.  The advantage is to modify a client’s thinking and behaviour.  When we visualise ourselves performing an action successfully, we use the same parts of the brain as when we are actually completing the action in ‘real life’.

Typically, sessions last 60 – 90 minutes and the amount of sessions can range anywhere between 1 – 6 sessions.
