Hypnotherapy can have many beneficial effects with a very wide range of issues from a simple phobia to complex trauma.
Hypnosis is a different state of consciousness which you can naturally enter so that, for therapeutic purposes, beneficial corrections may be given directly to your unconscious mind. In this way, hypnosis is an effective way of making contact with our inner (unconscious) self, which is both a reservoir of unrecognised potential and knowledge as well as being the unwitting source of many of our problems.
Clinical hypnotherapy means using advanced methods of hypnosis and other techniques to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems and upwards of 85 per cent of people will readily respond to clinical hypnotherapy. A number of medical university hospitals now offer an overview of clinical hypnotherapy as a Selective Study Unit.
Clinical hypnotherapy is highly cost effective with patient benefit often being achieved rapidly. Also clinical hypnotherapy can be successful where other interventions have not produced the desired outcome. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of issues for example: fears and phobias, anxiety and stress, panic attacks, insomnia, lack of self-confidence, fear of flying, weight management, smoking cessation and even physical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, menopause symptoms, skin conditions and migraines.
The number of hypnotherapy sessions required ranges from 1 session to 3-5 sessions of approx 1-2 hours duration depending on the issue. If formal trance is used during the session you will probably experience the pleasant, relaxing feeling of being in trance for approx 30-45 minutes.
Hypnotherapy sessions are generally customised to your individual needs and wants, and your beliefs are respected at all times. If you want a specific technique or approach to be used or avoided then mention this to your hypnotherapist and your treatment plan will be adjusted in accordance with your wishes.
Clients often report beneficial changes in other areas of their life in addition to the concern for which they originally sought help for, these may benefits can include (amongst others), improved sleep, the ability to relax and a general sense of wellbeing, the ease to be present and enjoy Life less distracted by thoughts. There are a whole host of additional changes possible with Hypnotherapy, as client’s issues can block their ability to be calm, centered and carefree, once the primary issue is addressed the block can naturally and easily dissipate.
