Like all Hypnotherapists I use a number of therapies and techniques to help clients resolve their issues and make positive life changes.
Don’t be afraid of Hypnosis, believe it or not you have been entering Hypnosis effortlessly every day of your life since you were born. It is a pleasant experience that you control, you choose when to enter Hypnosis and when to come out of it and most importantly it is safe.
You will have experienced Hypnosis in the form of day dreaming, being engrossed in a book, film or even listening to music, it’s a natural part of being human.
From extensive clinical research, it’s been proven that Hypnosis is nothing new, but a natural human ability which we have always had. It’s nothing more than a state of intense and pure relaxation where suggestions are more readily accepted into the deep subconscious mind (where the problem lies) more so than in an awakened state.
When guided into hypnosis by a Hypnotherapist, you will feel total and complete relaxation at a much deeper level than you may have experienced before, however you remain in complete control.
One of the funniest things I hear is “I can’t be hypnotised, my mind is too strong”. Everyone chooses whether or not to enter into hypnosis; you have to relax and allow yourself to enter into the hypnotic state. To be hypnotised all you need is intelligence and imagination, so what these people are really saying is that they are not intelligent or imaginative. In fact there is only approximately 10% of the population that do not have the mental capacity to be hypnotised. So actually being hypnotised is not a weakness, it’s a strength.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT
CBT is a standard type of talking therapy, often referred to as “counselling”. It works to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behaviour. Cognitive therapy is a therapy based upon a combination of basic behavioural and cognitive principles. Most therapists working with patients dealing with anxiety and depression use a blend of cognitive and behavioural therapy. This technique acknowledges that there may be behaviours that cannot be controlled through rational thought, but rather emerge based on prior conditioning from the environment and other external and/or internal stimuli. CBT is "problem focused" (undertaken for specific problems) and "action oriented" (therapist tries to assist the client in selecting specific strategies to help address those problems), or directive in its therapeutic approach. It is different from the more traditional, psychoanalytical approach, where therapists look for the unconscious meaning behind the behaviours and then diagnose the patient. Instead, behaviourists believe that disorders, such as depression, have to do with the relationship between a feared stimulus and an avoidance response, resulting in a conditioned fear, much like Ivan Pavlov. Cognitive therapists believed that conscious thoughts could influence a person’s behaviour all on its own. Ultimately, the two theories were combined to create what is now known as cognitive behavioural therapy.
