Life a struggle?
Sometimes we just don’t realise when the pressures of life are getting on top of us until the strain starts to tell. We can then find oursleves suffering from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, depression and many other illnesses. Hypnotherapy Can Help.
Often it is our behaviour patterns and negative thought processes that cause these problems, leaving us unable to cope. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can make a positive difference to the way we react by changing old patterns of behaviour to new more positive ones so enabling us to cope much better with life’s challenges. The therapy focuses on the client’s strengths and inner resources enabling them to look forward to a more positive future where they are more in control of their thoughts, feelings and actions.
What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is different from other therapies in that it is drug free, there is no physical manipulation and the conscious mind, with its anxious or analytical thoughts, is bypassed. It is the conscious mind which can often hinder the success of other forms of psychological work such as counselling or psychotherapy. With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy the client and therapist work together to focus on the changes that the client wants to make in their life. Beneficial results are often achieved faster than with other therapies because we do not focus on the problems, we focus on the goals that the client wants to achieve.
The client will be given an overview of the workings of the mind, helping them to understand how we can sometimes feel like areas of our life are out of our control.
Using hypnosis, the therapist guides the client into a relaxed state enabling direct access to their subconscious mind. This is where our instinctive behaviour patterns and natural reactions are formed. Using positive suggestion and imagery the therapist is able to focus on the behaviours that the client wishes to change.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is the bringing together of the conscious and subconscious minds in a trance state. It is a safe and powerful technique creating a deeply relaxed state of the body, mind and emotions. It is also a perfectly natural state that we are often in during our everyday lives, such as whilst reading a book, watching television, or driving.
The therapist guides you into a relaxed trance state by using the sound of their voice. It is not sleep.
Is it safe?
Yes! No-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when in trance people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate.
