Hypnotherapy

What changes would you like to achieve today?

Dr Albert Schweitzer once said: Patients carry their own doctor inside. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the physician who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.

With skilful hypnotherapy, we can discover and use inner resources that we’re not ordinarily aware of. This can make it possible to safely re-evaluate and reorganise existing ideas, feelings and habits and at the same time generate new, more useful ones.

You could think of the mind as being like an iceberg floating in water — most of it is below the surface and invisible.

At any given moment, we are aware of only a tiny fraction of all the things we actually know. All our other thoughts and feelings and perceptions and memories remain — like that iceberg — outside of our awareness until they're brought to mind.

Even though we may not be aware of it, the way we think and feel about things can sometimes get in the way of us achieving what we really want. Without meaning to, those thoughts and feelings can sometimes convince us that we are more limited than we really are.

This is where hypnotherapy can make a difference.
 
By relaxing habitual thought processes, by uncovering, and building on, hidden strengths and abilities, hypnotherapy can help us to find new, more beneficial, ways of thinking and feeling about things. And this can help us achieve what we really, truly want — like overcoming anxiety, fears, panic or stress, stopping smoking and becoming a permanent non-smoker, losing weight and successfully managing your diet, and many, many other goals...
Hypnotherapy is usually deeply relaxing, but unlike sleep; the conscious part of the mind generally remains awake, observant and comfortably resting.
 
The role of the clinical hypnotherapist is best described as that of a teacher, instructor or guide. The teacher of any skill knows the goal which he wishes his pupil to obtain. The teacher also knows the techniques that have proved most successful in helping people to understand what that goal is and how to attain it.
 
So it is with the hypnotherapist, who must prepare the way for hypnosis in the mind of the client, and then lead the client by easy stages toward the attainment of the desired goal.
