Hypnotherapy FAQs

What exactly is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the process that takes you into a relaxed trance state and combines it with therapy to help you let go of negative thoughts and feelings, and replace them with positive ones.

How does Hypnotherapy work?

I will use a form of words that encourages your mind to relax, giving me access to your subconscious and allowing me to suggest things to it. But the key point is that it is you who allows your mind to go into this state; Going into a hypnotic state relies on your interest and willingness to be guided into this different state of consciousness.

How can Hypnotherapy help me?

My tailor-made hypnotherapy sessions can help you to get on top of one particular aspect of your life, such as improving your confidence and self-esteem, feeling free from anxiety, tackling a specific challenge such as public speaking, an interview, or a driving test, achieving goals such as losing weight, stopping smoking or nail-biting or beating a fear.
It is worth bearing in mind that what you initially attend hypnotherapy for can change during the treatment process as other issues may arise. This will of course be discussed if and when this occurs.

Will I lose control?

No. You are in complete control of the process each and every step of the way. You are aware of everything both you and I will say throughout the session. You will not do anything, or act in any way, that is dissimilar to what you would do in your full conscious state.

How long does it take to see results?

This completely depends on the person and the issue being dealt with. All of my treatment is personalised and so I am unable to say how long treatment will take. This will be discussed after your initial consultation and I have a firm idea of what we are going to be working on together. The amount of sessions required can also change during the treatment process depending on how much progress is being made.
