What is Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy?

There are two main levels of treatments used in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. Both are often mixed to obtain the best results for the client. The first level is known as suggestion based therapy where some idea or suggestion is put forward to the client to help bring about an enhancement and improvement in their life and enable them to achieve what they hope for. This method is particularly useful to help a client become a non smoker, alleviate pre-test nerves, nail biting, improve self confidence and to be more motivated.
The second level of treatment is used to discover the cause of the problem rather than controlling the symptom. Through this method the cause is revealed in such a way that it can no longer have any affect on the client, consequently the symptoms disappear. Emotional problems, phobias, anxiety, depression, stuttering and sexual problems respond well to this approach

Why do we sometimes develop problems?

The human mind is made up of two parts, the non intelligent but clever subconscious mind and the intelligent conscious mind. We have an awareness of the conscious part of our mind but usually we are unaware of the workings of our subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is the automatic part of our mind and behaves in a way which could be compared to a computer program. Everything we have ever experienced, done, said, heard, smelt or seen is stored in the memory of our subconscious and this gives us an enormous resource to call upon to help us in our lives. However just like a computer can develop a fault in its program , our subconscious mind through misunderstandings, emotions and experiences can also develop a fault. When this happens we may develop symptoms such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence in ourselves, extreme tiredness, phobias, asthma, eating problems, sleeping problems, migraines etc..

How can all this help you?

When a fault in our subconscious programming occurs it is normally difficult for us to correct the program by ourselves, and this is where therapy can help.
Therapy can also help you to change your attitudes which in turn changes your behaviour so that you can achieve exactly what you want. This will enable you to do the things you want to do, or not as the case may be!
You may want to stop smoking, lose weight, to be relieved of a phobia, you may want to be more confident and outgoing, improve your love life, pass your driving test or pass those important exams.
Whatever you want to achieve Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy can help.

Questions and answers.

Listed below are the most frequently asked questions with their answers :-

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, you are more aware of everything that is happening to you. It is a perfectly natural state and is usually accompanied by a pleasant state of physical relaxation.

Have you ever been so involved in a task that you have lost track of time?

Have you ever driven from one place to another and arrived safely but not remember the journey?

Have you ever day-dreamed?

These are all everyday examples of being in an altered state of awareness.

Is there any reason to be worried about it ?

None at all. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid to all sorts of problems. The therapist guides you to your own resolutions based upon what you seek to achieve.

Am I asleep ?

No, you are in a very relaxed state, you are aware of what is around you and everything that is happening to you.

Is there anyone who cannot be hypnotised?

Only those who are high on drugs or alcohol or perhaps those who are mentally handicapped in the extreme cannot be hypnotised. The depth of the hypnotic state will be different for different people.

Are drugs used?


How many visits will I need?

Simple problems like nail biting can be removed in 2-3 sessions whilst more serious problems may take longer. This is best discussed at the introductory consultation where we are able to talk about your problem and discuss the therapy best suited to you.
