There are a lot of misconceptions about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, mostly based on films and stage shows.
Contrary to popular belief, Hypnosis is not an unconscious state, nobody ‘goes under’, you are definitely not asleep, you are not under the hypnotist’s control (although stage hypnosis often looks as if you are) and it’s not a truth serum; you won’t unwittingly let out all your secrets and bare your soul!
Hypnosis is a natural everyday state of focused attention. We enter a ‘trance’ like state several times a day.
For example, driving and reaching your destination with little, if any, recollection of the journey because you were lost in your thoughts, watching a good film and becoming engrossed in the action/story or daydreaming and staring off into space
Hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious part of our mind where we store all our past experiences, memories and emotions and removing old unhelpful learned thought patterns and behaviour.
I trained for a year at the Noram School of Hypnotherapy in Pontefract and qualified in 2012.
Since then I have undertaken a large number of continuing professional development courses and in 2019 I qualified to teach Clinical Hypnotherapy myself.
Both my therapies and Hypnotherapy training are accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Register.
Will Hypnothotherapy help me?
Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand and there are no guarantees of the outcome, but in my experience, it can help reducing anxiety and physical pain, removing phobias and improving confidence and self-esteem especially when combined with EFT and NLP.
