In the current climate of enthusiasm for drug-free, holistic therapies which complement conventional medicine, Advanced Hypnotherapy techniques are being used successfully to treat a wide range of psychological, emotional and physical problems.
Physical problems do not have to be psychosomatic in nature to be helped by hypnotherapy.
Hugh will be pleased to see you first of all for an initial consultation which places you under no obligation whatsoever.
At that consultation, hypnotherapy will be carefully explained and any questions you may have will be answered. At this stage, also, the number of sessions likely to be needed for any agreed therapy can be discussed.
What Is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective and speedy technique of psychotherapy using the natural state of hypnosis to get to the origin of your problem. The cause of the problem is often situated deep within the subconscious mind, hidden away out of conscious awareness.
A hypnotherapist utilises the natural state of hypnosis to help you bring about beneficial changes for yourself. Hypnotherapy is effective, because, relaxed in hypnosis, you are ready to accept positive statements and suggestions towards your sense of well being.
What Happens During Hypnotherapy?
During hypnotherapy you allow yourself to become relaxed by choosing to respond to the suggestions of the hypnotherapist. In this relaxed state you are in contact with your subconscious mind, the seat of all emotional and behavioural problems.
If it is understood that the subconscious is about 90 per cent of the mind, while the conscious is about 10 per cent, then it can also be understood that it is most effective to work with the subconscious mind.
It is now widely recognised by the medical profession as well as therapists that mind and body are inextricably linked together, and that disease or tension in the mind can lead to disease and tension in the body, and vice versa. Using hypnotherapy you can be directly in touch with your subconscious mind, and so can deal directly with the cause of your problem rather than dealing simply with the symptom.
You and the therapist need to work in a relaxed atmosphere of mutual respect and consent for therapy to be successful. Without trust and rapport hypnosis will not be achieved, and you will not respond to the suggestions. You will only take on board the suggestions that are appropriate for you.
Who Can Hypnotherapy Help?
In the current climate of enthusiasm for drug-free, holistic therapies, which complement conventional medicine, Advanced Hypnotherpy techniques are being used successfully to treat a wide range of psychological, emotional and physical problems. Indeed hypnotherapy does not just have to be about problems. It is about effortless change and helping you to improve your quality of life.
Hypnotherapy can help us all to deal and cope effectively with the stresses of modern work and living, and give us control of our lives – instead of, perhaps, letting life control us.
Areas in which hypnotherapy might be broadly said to be most effective can be listed as follows:-
- Habits – long standing habits that need to be changed such as smoking, over-eating, insomnia, nail biting, bed wetting, blushing etc.
- Physical problems – skin disorders, rashes, migraine, irritable bowel, etc.
- Social difficulties – lack of confidence, examination nerves, poor memory, phobias, panic, public speaking etc.
However, it is important to note that the above are only examples. The range of difficulties that hypnotherapy can help with has few boundaries.
Hugh can also teach you self-hypnosis allowing you to be more in control of your life wherever you might be or whatever you might be doing.
