What is hypnotherapy and what can I help you with?
All of our learnt behaviour and memories are stored in our subconscious. Hypnotherapy works by relaxing the body and mind to such an extent that the subconscious mind can be accessed. It is a totally safe and pain free therapy. Your sensibilities are fully intact throughout our sessions and will automatically reject any suggestion that is inconsistent to your personal values and beliefs so I am not able to influence or make you do anything against your own will. You are in total control throughout so you can open your eyes at any point if you so wish. In 1955 the British Medical Association approved hypnosis as a valid medical treatment.
I will finish our initial consultation period with a relaxation session so you will know what to expect in your first session thereby making you feel more relaxed and increasing the successfulness of the sessions.
