Hypnotherapy is a safe and supportive way of addressing many of the issues which impact our quality of life. Our focus is on how you want things to be in the future and the strengths and resources you already have, rather than dwelling on the problems of past. In this way, we can move forward positively and help change the negative behaviours and thought patterns that are keeping you from living life to the full.
Listed below you will find a few of the most common issues that can be helped with hypnotherapy. For those clients simply seeking to wind down in peaceful surroundings, relaxation therapy is also available.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if your problem is not shown here. I’ll be happy to discuss your issue and advise whether Hypnotherapy is appropriate for you and if I can’t help I may be able to point you in the right direction.
It is usually safe to have Hypnotherapy alongside conventional medicine, but if you are currently having any medical treatment for any of the conditions above, please speak to your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment before considering hypnotherapy.
Alfred Barios PHD conducted a survey of psychotherapy literature which revealed the following therapeutic recovery rates:
Psychoanalysis – 38% recovery after 600 sessions
Behavioural Therapy – 72% recovery after 22 sessions
Hypnotherapy – 93% recovery after 6 sessions.
“It is interesting to note the negative correlation between number of sessions and percentage recovery rate. At first sight this seems paradoxical However, if a form of therapy is truly effective, it should not only increase recovery rate, but also shorten the number of sessions necessary (as well as widen the range of cases treatable).” – Barrios, A. A. (1970). Hypnotherapy: A reappraisal.
Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric treatment. Always consult your Doctor on all medical issues regarding your condition and any changes to your treatment. Hypnosis is a combination of focused concentration and mental relaxation similar to meditation. The best hypnotic subjects are creative, intelligent and curious. Results cannot be guaranteed and motivation, the ability to concentrate and a positive expectancy aid in your success.
