Hypnotherapy

Contrary to popular belief, hypnotherapy is not a state of deep sleep.  It does involve the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the patient is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotist's voice.  In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed.

The therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the patient, the seeds of which become firmly planted.

The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to reprogramming patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. 

 


 

 How does it work? And targeting the source.

Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. Most therapeutic methods, such as counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and coaching, work on a conscious level.  The conscious mind, however, represents merely the tip of the iceberg.  The efficiency of hypnosis lies in its ability to work at a subconscious level, thereby directly targeting the source.  Hiding underneath the surface of our conscious mind, the subconscious represents the largest part of our mind.

For example, a patient who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders may try everything they consciously can to do it, but will fail as long as their subconscious mind retains this terror and prevents the patient fro succeeding.  Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.

NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP doesn't change the world - it simply helps you change the way that you observe and perceive your world. NLP can be described in various ways. The formal definition is that NLP is 'the study of the strcture of your subjective experience'. 

Neuro - concerns your neurological system. NLP is bases on the idea that you experience the world through your senses and translate sensory information into thought processes, both conscious and unconscious.

Linguistic - refers to the way you use language to make sense of the world, capture and conceptualise experience and communicate that experience to others.  In NLP, linguistics is the study of how the words you speak and your body language influence your experience.

Programming - Your personal programming consists of your internal thinking patterns that you use to make decisions, solve problems, learn, evaluate and get results. 

Essentially, NLP is about developing a positive attitude to life and its possibilities rather than dwelling on problems. So much more is possible when you have the mindset and attitude to support your success. 

Changing your mindset and attitude really does change your life!

As the great Hypnotherapist Milton H. Erickson said 'enlightenment is always preceded by confusion' - curiosity - accepting that you don't know all the answers - and a willingness to be confused.

Timeline Transformation 

The sum of our memories and life experience influences the way that we approach our lives on a daily basis. Even negative experiences that we seem to have forgotten can cause us to feel less fulfilled and prevent us from achieving things. We can often feel that something may be wrong without being fully aware of the unconscious reason for this.

I will use your own internal ‘timeline’ to connect with your unconscious mind. Often in a single session, this will include healing emotional traumas and eliminating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviours. You will gain freedom from your past and be more able to build the future that you deserve.

I understand that many of our problems stem from our past. I will take you through the chain of events that has lead to your unwanted behaviours or negative internal state and help you to eliminate past negative emotions and limiting beliefs, leaving you empowered to make better decisions.
