F.A.Q’s

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation during which you will be able to concentrate all of your attention onto one particular idea or concept in order to gain the result that you need. At no point will you be asleep or be in a trance state as commonly seen in films.

We all drift in and out of hypnosis several times a day without realizing it. Common examples of this are driving to a regular destination yet on arrival not being able to recall the details of the journey. Or being so engrossed in a book or a film you fail to hear someone who is talking to you.

When you are intently guided into this deep state of relaxation by a trained hypnotherapist they are able to communicate directly with your subconscious in order to give it a variety of ideas and suggestions.

Whist in this relaxed state you may appear to be sleeping, but you are far more receptive to using your senses of hearing, taste, smell and feeling. You are also fully aware of every thing happening to you and able to communicate and and open your eyes whenever you wish to, you may simply make the choice not to. No one can be made to do anything they do not want to do, as your conscious mind would intervene and bring you out of the relaxed state.

I am very strong minded will hypnosis still work for me?

Yes as long as you really want to make changes in you life it will work for you.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No definitely not although it feels wonderful to relax as deeply as you do in hypnosis you will always come out of this state you cannot be stuck there.

Will I be under the hypnotists control?

No this only happens in films and fiction if at any point you are unhappy with being hypnotised you will be able to get up and walk away.

Can every body be hypnotised?

Any body suffering from a psychotic episodes should never be taken into a hypnotic state. Other than this most people can be safely hypnotised, any problems/contraindications  would come to light in the initial consultation which is free of charge.

How many sessions will I need?

This really depends on what you are coming to see me for but most issues can be resolved with three sessions. With the exception of stop smoking which is one session of approximately one and a half to two hours in length.

What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming. Neuro Linguistic Programming looks at the way in which we think and process our thoughts (Neuro), the language patterns we use (Linguistic) and our behaviours (Programming) and how these interact to have a positive (or negative) effect on us as individuals. NLP is a collection of a wide range of methods and models, which create an understanding of thought process and behaviour. Understanding these techniques can bring about a positive change in you and others.

Do you do group sessions in the workplace?

Yes, I offer group sessions as well as 1-2-1 consultations for businesses.

Can I have someone with me in the room?

Yes, you are welcome to bring someone with you.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.

It’s most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems. CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.

CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focussing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
