Hypnotherapy is nothing new nor is it some mystical force
Just lie back and relax and let the wonderful, dreamy state of hypnotherapy, float over you as you learn strategies to cope with your issues and emotions.
Hypnosis is a natural state. We go into an hypnotic state several times a day, for example when we watch T.V. or become engrossed in a book or when we are daydreaming.
Highway hypnosis, also known as white line fever, is an altered mental state in which a person can drive a vehicle some distance, responding to external events in the expected, safe and correct manner with no recollection of having consciously done so.
Hypnotherapy starts with a relaxation technique because when we are relaxed, we can access our subconscious mind where our desired changes can be made.
Self-Hypnosis is a simple technique to learn and I can teach you this skill so that you can use it at any time you want.
At all times during the session, you are aware of what the practitioner is saying and doing. You can open your eyes and answer questions.
A Typical Session
The initial session is important in getting to know you as an individual and understanding what changes you want to make. This consultation is free of charge and takes about 30 minutes.
Typically the next session will last an hour.
Subsequent sessions last about an hour and will start with an assessment of the progress made so far and areas where further progress is required.
The deeper relaxation at the beginning of the session, is induced gradually by using a combination of methods such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing and guided imagery. Many clients find that this sensation is a feeling of deep relaxation that they have not felt in a long time.
In this relaxed state it is possible to improve the way you feel, think and behave.
I originally went to learn how to keep calm and somehow it conquered my long fear of the dentist. anon
