What is hypnotherapy?

“The mind is powerful, and you have more control than you think.” Scott D. Lewis

If you think of your brain as an ocean, then the conscious part of your brain is the surface of that ocean, while the great watery depths represent the subconscious brain. The subconscious is deep, vast and largely unexplored.

We use the conscious brain every day to make decisions and process thoughts, and this is the part of the mind that you are aware of. The elusive subconscious mind quietly records every little thing that ever happens to you in life, and controls the involuntary functions, habits and emotional aspects of our behavior.

Both the conscious and subconscious mind work in tandem, and if not working well together, problems can surface such as anger issues, a poor relationship with food or perhaps seeking destructive relationships.

Patterns of behavior are programmed into the subconscious from the earliest age, and we absorb what is around us: emotional conditioning, experiences, fears, and anxieties.

Hypnotherapy allows an entirely natural and deeply relaxed state that taps into the recesses of the subconscious mind, an area that we cannot usually access. When in this relaxed state, the brain wavelength changes and the subconscious becomes open to suggestion. This part of the brain is incredibly powerful and without agenda.  The hypnotic state allows the subconscious the ability to accept solutions

Through guided suggestion, we can eliminate limits placed by the conscious mind. This can change thought patterns and effectively re-boot an aspect of your behavior that is making you unhappy or causing issues.

Hypnotherapy is an effective clinical treatment for a whole range of problems ranging from stress, anxiety, overeating, smoking cessation to phobias and self-destructive behavioral patterns.

Anxiety & Stress Relief

The terms anxiety and stress are often interchangeable, but there are a number of conditions that fall very specifically into the anxiety bracket. These include:

  1. Agarophobia

  2. Generalized anxiety

  3. Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

  4. Panic Attacks

  5. Claustrophobia

  6. Social Phobias

  7. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

 At its core, anxiety can make us believe that things, or a situation, in life is far worse than it actually is. We all experience it at a low grade (it’s part of our hormonal makeup, and connected to the release of stress hormones), but certain life events or triggers can tip us over the edge. Sometimes the cause is not clear to the sufferer, but it’s a very distressing condition. Stress, on the other hand, will wax and wane with the event in our lives.

Hypnotherapy can be of great value for a number of issues, including;

  • anxiety & stress relief
  • smoking cessation
  • weight loss
  • relationship problems
  • exam stress

Claire uses a very friendly and relaxed approach with her clients, and the session is guided by the needs of the individual.

So-Hypno Hypnotherapy is for everyone. Hypnotherapy is a clinical tool that allows you to tap into a powerful and underused part of the brain. With guided suggestion, it is possible to re-boot and reprogram unhelpful behavior patterns and ways of thinking. Clients feel relaxed, unburdened and uplifted at the end of a session.

The only caveat is that the desire to achieve the end result must be there.
