What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy involving hypnosis and, if the therapist is adequately trained, psychotherapy. (Take a look at the difference between hypnotherapy and hypno-psychotherapy here). Hypnosis focuses a client’s imagination and subconscious mind to help them make positive changes to thoughts, feelings and behaviours. The hypnotherapist will ask the client what changes they would like to make and these will be agreed prior to any therapy occurring.
Unlike counselling and traditional psychotherapy which often involves looking at a number of issues in a conscious way, hypnotherapy works with the unconscious mind. However, this doesn’t mean you risk losing control or that you can be manipulated to do or think things you don’t want to. The client remains completely in control and although very relaxed, is able to talk or get up and leave the room should they wish to. I like to describe hypnotherapy a bit like “meditation with a goal”!
Below is a list of the most common problems our clients seek hypnotherapy and psychotherapy for. However, this list isn’t exhaustive so if there’s something else you would like to work on, let us know and we’ll see if we can help.
