Over the years I have learnt how to use my knowledge to work intuitively. I see the bigger picture and successfully help many people move away from their problems to live the life they are seeking.
Using hypnosis, psychotherapy, trans-personal psychology and mindfulness techniques holistically I can help you take small steps to complete the big leap that previously seemed paralyzing.
I believe that therapy is a two way experience. Our relationship is most important, we connect as equals and share the experience so that, alongside my analytical stance to the sessions there is empathy and insight.
I view you as unlimited in ability with the ability to achieve great potential. You have the ability to reach your goal. I want you to recognise your strengths, creativity and choices.
I work in a way that we both enjoy the sessions but do not become co-dependent. I have spent years working with and researching the human mind, and have encapsulated the most important and useful techniques so that sessions are fluid and you achieve success efficiently.
At the beginning of the session we will spend some time talking about the previous days. I will ask you about your feelings, what you think helped and what you think didn’t. I will then use a variety of techniques to help you make positive changes. Some sessions are interactive, you will need to answer questions and practise techniques. Other times I will help you make changes by talking to you, using metaphors, visualisations and positive suggestions.
Hypnosis can be thought of as ‘attentive receptive concentration’, a state in which one is more open to suggestion and new ideas.
A typical hypnosis protocol is relatively boring. Considered a phenomenon, the primary components of hypnosis are an induction followed by suggestions.
The first suggestion in hypnosis is the hypnotic induction, with the intention of promoting an state characterized by absorption in the words of the hypnotist, and a reduction in awareness of everything else.
A non-deceptive placebo hypnosis facilitates changes in your reactions just as advertising does. Like advertising it is subtle, and you will feel normal afterwards.
The altered state of consciousness that some people feel when under hypnosis is not generally an unknown state of mind. We all experience a hypnotic state daily, especially when absorbed in one thing.
Relaxation often occurs during a hypnotherapy session due to the nature of the situation, laying on a couch or in a comfortable chair. This does not mean hypnosis requires relaxation and a relaxed person is not always in hypnosis.
Some people experience different feelings whilst other people feel normal, whatever happens for you I will be able to work with it so that you achieve your desired outcome.
