Regain control in your life with Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis has been used for over two hundred years to treat a wide range of physical, psychological and emotional disorders. It is actually a natural state that we all enter in and out of several times a day without even noticing. Day dreaming is a good example of this, or the deeply relaxed state that we experience when watching television, or drifting off to sleep.
Hypnosis creates a deeply relaxed state in which mental stress and bodily tension are reduced. In this relaxed state, the mind is usually more open to the process of change. Integrating hypnosis with appropriate psychotherapeutic approaches can help to bring about positive changes.
While in hypnosis, you are generally still aware of your surroundings and can choose to come out of hypnosis at any time. At the end of the session, you will be gently returned to the normal waking state. Most new clients are surprised at how far away the reality of hypnotherapy is from any prior expectation of 'mind control', and find the experience deeply relaxing. At all times, YOU are in control.
Regain control in your life...
There are times in everyone's life when they feel the need to take back some control or indeed release control of a situation or bad habit. It is great if you can achieve this yourself, but sometimes a little help is needed to see things more clearly.
Hypnotherapy on its own or in conjunction with other psychotherapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) or Neuro Lingusitic Programming (NLP) can rid you of unwanted behaviours and encourage positive new ways of thinking and behaving.
Hypnotherapy can help to free you from the following issues:
- Lack of Confidence
- Low Self Esteem
- Sports Performance
- Exam Nerves
- Public Speaking
- Eating Disorders
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Nail Biting
- Weight Loss
This represents some of the challenges we face as fallible human beings. There are many others and they can be discussed in strict confidence with the therapist.
Breaking bad habits
Habits such as nail biting, hair pulling or teeth grinding can happen subconsciously. Before you realise it, your nails are down to the quick and you've hardly been aware of what you were doing. It may be that this behaviour is a manifestation of some underlying anxiety, or it could quite simply be an involuntary action. Whatever the reason, hypnotherapy can successfully help in breaking the bad habit.
What to expect
Joanne O'Neill practices in Hertfordshire. Please follow the link for contact details. Once an appointment has been made, there will be an initial consultation which will normally take about an hour. This is an important session to get to know one another and talk about what you want to gain through hypnotherapy. It is also an important information gathering session, all of which remains completely confidential.
The more that can be found out about the motivation for seeking hypnotherapy, the more the therapist is able to work out a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. During this session any questions you might have about hypnotherapy can be discussed and perhaps a brief relaxation session can take place, especially if you haven't experienced hypnotherapy before.
The treatment plan will typically cover three sessions, although one or two may be enough for you. Likewise if further sessions are required this will be reviewed and a revised plan implemented.
