Hypnotherapy: What You Should Know

There are many forms of psychological therapy but Hypnotherapy is distinctive in that it attempts to address the client’s subconscious mind. The Hypnotherapist may utilise a wide range of techniques, from story telling, utilising the client’s own imagination, to metaphor or symbolism as well as direct suggestions for beneficial changes. Analytical techniques may also be employed in an attempt to uncover problems deemed to lie in a client’s past, or therapy may concentrate more on a client’s current life and presenting symptoms.

Key Points You Should Know

  • Trance (or altered state of awareness) is a naturally occurring state we go in and out of throughout the day. For example whilst driving a familiar route, you suddenly realise you are driving down your street and it’s as if you arrived there on ‘automatic’. You don’t remember consciously doing it.
  • You are always in control.
  • You will not do anything you don’t wish to ; This is not stage hypnosis.
  • You will not reveal anything private you don’t wish to.
  • You will not be ‘manipulated’.
  • You can terminate a session any time you choose just by opening your eyes.
  • I’m a full member of British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and its Code of Conduct.
  • Everything is confidential.
  • I may work alongside the client’s G.P.

Virtual Gastric Band Virtual Gastric Band (9/29/2018) - Understanding why people overeat, and what the triggers are, is crucial to make such changes. Hypnosis allows them to really understand this to then begin the re-wiring. By the time people have reached an unhealthy weight, often they have lost proper communication with their body and mind, so it becomes quite a mindless behaviour.
