We offer Hypnotherapy to clients as part of the centre's holistic approach to care. All our practitioners are fully qualified members of a professional body.

What is hypnotherapy?

There are many forms of psychological therapy but hypnotherapy is distinctive in that it works with the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness, where we are able to open our minds to beneficial suggestions. Where we can access and utilise existing inner resources and make use of our imagination to help make positive changes in our lives.

Hypnosis is a safe way of connecting with the subconscious mind, to issue new suggestions. These suggestions are tailored precisely to suit our needs - and in this way we can bring about changes in the way we think and behave that often seem simply miraculous.

Hypnotherapy can generally help with any problem we're finding hard to handle on our
own - thoughts and actions we'd like to banish or acquire, or emotional suffering that is too overwhelming or has gone on for too long. It can
often change our perspective from negative to
positive, which can have a significant life enhancing effect.

Sometimes we may need to regress back to find the root of the problem, often it is more appropriate to use future progression techniques in order to change the future. Hypnotherapy is often combined with NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) – rapid techniques used to alter limiting patterns of thought, behavior and language.

What will I experience?

There are many myths about hypnosis which give a misleading impression. The reality is very different. All hypnosis is in effect self-hypnosis.

The client doesn’t don’t lose awareness of who they are, where they are or what they are doing. You are in control at all times.

They don’t ‘go under’ in the sense that they fall asleep or lose consciousness; most people remain fully aware throughout the session. It is very similar to the focused state of daydreaming, or that relaxed state before sleep.

In fact, hypnotherapy is invariably a relaxing, enjoyable experience that leaves us feeling calm and relaxed.
