There's a gulf of difference between the clinical hypnotherapy that I offer and the common image of the moustachioed, pocket-watch swinging hypnotist that you might imagine.

Even though the word Hypnosis is derived from the Greek word "hypnos" which means "sleep", sleep itself has nothing to do with the hypnotic state and hypnotherapy. A person who is hypnotised is not asleep or unconscious.
A Hypnotherapist is not able to control another person's mind. No-one can be made to do anything which goes against their will and own moral or ethical standards. When a person is hypnotised they are in a very, very relaxed state. They are still aware of their surroundings and the sense of hearing is often sharper than usual. A person can bring themselves out of the hypnotic state at any time if the need arises.

Hypnosis has been used for thousands of years before even the birth of Christ, giving us and our ancestors insights into the human mind that we have only recently begun to understand. In recent decades hypnotherapy has emerged as a serious, recognised scientific method of helping treat an incredible variety and specificity of symptoms and ailments, including, though by no means limited to:

  • Smoking
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Bereavement
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Phobias
  • Weight Control
  • Confidence
    and much much more...

Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk to a professional therapist to help you understand yourself and your situation. This might involve reflecting on your life experiences and your responses to new ones. The counsellor will also help you to identify what changes in life style could reduce any distress you feel, and to support you as you consider how to do this.
