Hypnotherapy, also referred to as guided hypnosis, is a trance state in which achieves a focused awareness and calm mind to create room for self-improvement and to achieve a heightened state of learning for behaviour modification. It helps activate your inner resources to achieve realistic goals or explore a possible psychological root cause of a disorder or symptom in a relaxed state, called trance.
Hypnotherapy works on your subconscious while exploring within you. It deals with unravelling the fears and experiences integrated in the layers of our subconscious and altering the way they affect our behaviour. Significant reduction or removal of symptoms can be achieved by a few regular sessions and over time the therapist can even train you to perform your own hypnotherapy at home.
All hypnotherapy sessions with a qualified hypnotherapist are confidential, giving you a safe space to explore what is troubling you.
The hypnotherapist will ask what has brought you to therapy and what you would like to see or feel at the end of your sessions. They will explain how hypnotherapy works and the process of hypnosis. After the consultation, they will guide you into hypnosis using the method which is most appropriate for you. During the whole process, you are in heightened state of awareness, like in deep meditative states and following the guidance from the therapist.
After a session you may feel uplifted, lighter and most likely, very relaxed. You may just notice a very positive shift in how you are feeling as well.
