A hypnotherapist does not control the client by telling her to do something that she will then get up and do. Instead hypnotherapy re-educates our unconscious mind. An old negative response to something is replaced by asking you to imagine the problem whilst superimposing a positive image onto it. Perhaps you are preparing a presentation at work and you are terrified of standing up in front of people you are hoping to impress or maybe you don’t actually know them. You will have learnt how to be terrified way back in your past – school may-be ? By running the process through in your mind in a positive way, whilst in hypnosis, your unconscious mind will begin to replace the fear with confidence.
At the start of a hypnotherapy session we will discuss the problem you bring in order to decide upon the most appropriate mode of treatment. I will then guide you into a gently relaxed state giving you visualisations relating to the issue and you will feel wonderfully safe, calm and able to hear every sound in the room.
During hypnosis you will be in control at all times and can come out of the altered state at any time in the same way one can snap out of a vivid daydream; in fact the hypnotic state can feel as if you are day-dreaming and is a natural form of consciousness that we all experience on a daily basis without realising it. At the end of the session you will open your eyes feeling relaxed and re-energised and remember everything that has happened.
Will I do and say things I can't remember under hypnosis?
Clinical Hypnosis should not be confused with stage hypnosis, which is a very different subject and from time to time gives hypnotherapy a bad press. At no time do any of my clients find themselves making fools of themselves - they are always in control and remember everything ! Clinical Hypnotherapy is an extremely valuable therapy recognised by the medical profession for the way it works either alone or alongside traditional medicine hence the reason for my many GP referrals.
These are some of the issues I commonly work with using hypnosis:
Weight loss & HypnoBand
Giving up Smoking
Many people make up their minds to lose weight and then find that old habits and patterns keep them from reaching their goals. Some of these patterns will be deeply rooted within the subconscious mind - we don't have to think about them but they are automatically triggered, and seem set to sabotage our efforts to change.
As one of the leading Clinical Hypnotherapists in Surrey, I am frequently asked to help people lose weight. I have now put together a programme which has proved highly successful. I spend time with each client discussing issues such as dieting, weight loss, image and emotions, and use hypnosis and NLP (neuro-linguistic-programming) to examine subconscious behaviour patterns. This allows us to find out where these patterns come from and break he process that will have been undermining your ability to loose weight.
The Hypno-Band Weight Loss System
Hypno-Band is a hypnotherapy system designed to enable weight loss in the clinically obese, specifically those with a high Body Mass Index (BMI). It is a combination of suggestion, visualisation and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques which, when combined, creates a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted. You will eat smaller portions and feel full, enabling you to have your hunger satisfied earlier.
The Hypno-Band system is used over 4 x one-hour sessions and breaks new ground in the weight loss area. By finding the root cause of your excessive eating habits and then discussing ways to deal with them, you will be equipped with the ‘tools’ to change these habits and live a healthier and happier lifestyle. Prior to commencing the process a full assessment will be carried out followed by the use of visualisation and CBT techniques and finally hypnosis; which then makes sustained weight loss possible. The process is simple and effective, and I have had good feedback from clients who have used this system.
