One of the great truths of life is the responses within the subconscious mind are strong determinants of our beliefs, habits and behaviours.  

Whether you wish to be more relaxed, to address a fear or lose an unwanted habit more comfortably, or to operate closer to your personal, exam, creative, sporting or business potential, solution focused hypnotherapy may help you. Trance is used to facilitate subconscious change, helping you into better alignment with your goal. A fairly light trance state is all that is required, and almost everyone can do it. 

On a conscious level we all know how to lose weight, travel on a plane, go to the dentist or to commit fully to study or sports training. When we react negatively to something we know is safe and wise, the barrier to our desired action is subconscious, and usually the ancient fight, flight or freeze response is triggered inappropriately. I help my clients to understand how this works with them, creating useful self-understanding, as well as working with them to improve the situation.

Whether we realise it or not, we all go into trance. When I am very focused on writing a book, I notice if someone outside uses noisy equipment, but I am not distracted at all, because I am in a trance of concentration. This is the kind of trance state I work with. You are guided into a relaxed and focused state, making you more receptive to the suggestions and guided imagery within your therapy. I love words, and many of my clients have complimented me on the beauty and grace, as well of the helpfulness of their sessions. 

You have to want to improve but it is not necessary to know you can. You do need to be willing to 'do your bit' too, and attending sessions regularly when a couple or more are required is important. I also ask that you listen to a supportive sound file, and carry out minimal homework exercises, or thought, attitude and response experiments, as I prefer to call them. Each appointment begins with solution focused dialogue, and the aspects that emerge from this influence your hypnosis.    

Hypnosis takes place in every session and is augmented with solution focused coaching and sometimes NLP techniques, particularly Re-Wind, sometimes known as the fast phobia technique.  

Regardless of the problem people consult me about, most experience extra benefits such as greater relaxation and better sleep, clearer thinking and motivation or living more joyfully.

I offer a free 30-minute initial chat, by telephone or video link. I explain how hypnotherapy would be used with your issue, how many sessions are likely and answer your questions.

Below is an NCH video of a typical client discussing their experience with hypnotherapy.
