Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of relaxation and heightened awareness into which we enter many times each day, for example while absorbed in a task, daydreaming, reading a book or driving ‘on autopilot’. During this hypnotic state, both blood pressure and heart rate are lowered, brain wave patterns are altered, and you become highly responsive to positive suggestion. read more
A typical hypnotherapy session involves guided relaxation into hypnosis followed by positive suggestions or story-telling and metaphor, from which the highly suggestible subconscious mind picks up meaning and learns to apply new responses. Issues that may be deeply rooted in your past may be addressed through careful regression and analysis. read more
Hypnotherapy is a process rather than an event and, whilst there are times when one hypnotherapy session will enable you to reach your goal, a few sessions are usually necessary in order for you to achieve your desired outcomes. Most of my clients find 3-6 sessions sufficient, depending on their goals and the effort they put in themselves between and after sessions.
Yes. You may be charged for any session missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours' notice.
