What is a session like?
A typical hypnotherapy session begins with a chat to gain a detailed understanding of your circumstances. Then I guide you into a relaxing state of hypnosis followed by positive suggestions from which yoursubconscious 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, where appropriate.
You are in complete control because the conscious mind is always present, and can choose to open your eyes and end the trance at any time you wish. Furthermore, it is impossible to ‘get stuck in hypnosis’; in the naturally-occurring state – much like a daydream – people either come out of trance when something demands their conscious attention, or the relaxation deepens until they fall asleep. In a hypnotherapy session, I will count you gradually out of the trance so that you emerge feeling refreshed, alert and ready to get on with the rest of your day.
Positive change is usually apparent after the first session and hypnotherapy can produce lasting results in a relatively short space of time
