Hypnotherapy is made up of two parts; hypnosis and how it is applied in therapy. It is a safe and effective way to help you uncover and address the most deeply held negative and unhelpful belief systems which cause problems and stop you from living the life that you want. Hypnosis can be best described as a natural state of altered consciousness, where in the relaxed state the subconscious mind becomes more receptive and the therapist is able to make positive suggestion in order to help create change.
In a session of Hypnotherapy, the therapist will spend time counselling. They will explore all aspects of the presenting issue, determining the best ways change is likely to happen for you. The therapist will then skillfully incorporate new ideas, learnings and understandings into a uniquely tailored session of hypnosis. Hypnosis is an excellent addition to counselling, providing that extra layer of insight, learning and understanding that comes when the subconscious mind is engaged and able to experience real and positive change in the way it needs to.
Counselling is a safe and confidential collaboration between a qualified counsellor and client to promote mental health and wellbeing, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns. Clients are active participants in the counselling process at every stage.
Counsellors work with children, young people, adults, couples, families and groups. The counselling process may be short term, long term, or over a lifetime, according to clients’ needs. Counsellors are fully present with their clients, using empathy and deep listening to establish positive working relationships. Counselling is effective when clients feel safe, understood, respected, and accepted without judgement.
Counselling is a profession with a strong evidence base. Counsellors use empirically supported interventions and specialised interpersonal skills to facilitate change and empower clients. Clients may explore: aspects of identity, spirituality, relationships with self and others, past experiences, parenting, grief and loss, trauma, domestic violence, child abuse, use of alcohol and other substances, depression, anxiety, and other experiences.
Changes facilitated by counselling include: change in perspective, new insight, new ways of thinking about situations, new awareness of feelings, enhanced capacity to tolerate and regulate feelings, new actions or behaviors, and new decisions about life.
Hypnotherapy and counselling are safe, proven and effective tools which have helped many people to realise positive change and break free of the unhelpful beliefs that drive negative habits, addictions and emotions.
