Many emotional problems stem from beliefs and fears that are stored in the Subconscious – a part of our mind like a vast warehouse, where we absorb all the messages from our family, friends, society, culture, and background. The Subconscious does not analyse or filter these messages, it just stores them. If we have been exposed to enough negative messaging then the Subconscious will become full with negative beliefs and fears. When our conscious mind gets overwhelmed or tired, (which is frequently), those negative beliefs and fears in the Subconscious mind can take over and drive our behaviour.
Hypnotherapy is a process of gently putting a person into a deeply calm, concentrated and receptive state. In this altered state of consciousness, the person can access and explore their own Subconscious. They can understand what messages and beliefs are really playing in the background of their mind. And the mind is so powerful that it offers up its own solutions for reframing those beliefs and messages into more positive ways of seeing ourselves and the world.
Hypnotherapy is not sleep. The client is always fully aware and fully in control. They can stop the session at any time and will never be forced to reveal or discuss anything that they want to keep private.
A session usually lasts up to 90 minutes. If a follow up session is required, this will usually last an hour and cost £80.
