Clinical Hypnotherapy

When: Monday

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a safe and natural state of deep relaxation. It's a lovely day-dream like state in which people usually feel very comfortable and relaxed.

What happens in a therapy session?

The first part of the session is spent talking about what you would like to achieve and your progress so far.

The therapist will then take you into a relaxed hypnotic state, you will be fully aware and fully in control, you will not be asleep and cannot be made to do anything you do not wish to do.

Whilst you are pleasantly and deeply relaxed the therapist communicates directly with the subconscious part of your mind, allowing you to use your own resources to make the positive changes you wish to make.

How long does a therapy session last and how many appointments will I need?

A therapy session would normally last for one hour. The content of each hypnotherapy session is tailored to the individual client. The number of sessions required varies between individuals and what they wish to achieve normally between two and six weekly sessions are recommended. Stop smoking sessions areusually 2hrs for the 1st session and 1hr for the 2nd.
