What is clinical hypnotherapy?


Clinical hypnotherapy offers a unique approach to overcoming obstacles and making permanent, sustainable changes. It uses relaxation techniques, which are pleasant and enjoyable, and visualisation techniques to enable you to focus on creative solutions and move forward in a constructive way. It isn’t magic, but it does make the process of making change easier by kick-starting your motivation and getting you in the right mind-set.

How can hypnotherapy help you?


We all have times in our lives when we want to make changes or improvements. When we recognise that we are not operating at our best and we want to do something about it. Perhaps it is an aspect of our health that needs attention. Perhaps we lack the motivation to achieve a personal goal. Maybe we want to be better at something, but we are not sure how to make that happen.


We all want to change different things – our health, our personal lives, our business performance or sports performance. But what we share in common is that we look for someone or something to help us on our way.


How does hypnotherapy work?


The subconscious part of your mind is where all your unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour are stored. You know that you want to think or behave differently, because what is happening at the current time may be averse to your own self-interests. But somehow, with all the logic and reasoning in the world, you can’t seem to break the negative cycles.

That is because your subconscious mind is very powerful, and if it has got used to a certain pattern, then it is reluctant to change. Even if that pattern makes you miserable. So to forge a new path for yourself takes a considerable amount of time and effort. You will experience significant discomfort as you try to steer a new course. The subconscious mind will resist these changes, and try to bring you back to the negative, default way of thinking and behaviour.

Hypnotherapy makes that process of change easier, by encouraging and “nudging” the subconscious mind into accepting that change is now needed. The subconscious mind is at its most receptive when you are very relaxed. Positive suggestions about new ways of thinking and behaving are then more likely to be accepted, and even welcomed. This enables you to pursue your new goals with more gusto, motivation and confidence, and makes it much more likely that you will succeed.
