Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective method of helping people to achieve their goals, whether these be gaining more confidence, stopping smoking, or some other issue.

People often have misconceptions about hypnosis, for example, that it involves putting yourself under the power of the hypnotherapist, but many of these ideas are simply popular myths. In fact hypnotherapy is one of the most easy and relaxing ways to deal with your issues.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is said to be an altered state of mind akin to deep relaxation. It occurs naturally when we are fully engrossed in any activity. In hypnotherapy, this heightened concentration is harnessed and focused to treat problems such as anxiety or cigarette addiction.

What sorts of problems can be helped with hypnosis?

Stress, anxiety, smoking, phobias, panic attacks, depression, slimming, high blood pressure, insomnia, public speaking, blushing, IBS, and more. I specialise in using hypnotherapy for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and men's mental health issues.

Is it like sleep?

Although the experience is very relaxing and can have a dream-like quality, you are usually aware throughout the session.

Is a hypnotised person under the hypnotherapist's control?

No. It is extremely rare there somebody can be hypnotis ed against their will, or made to do or say anything they don't want to.

Will I be able to remember everything?

Amnesia rarely occurs, but when it does it is perfectly natural and safe.

What if I can't be hypnotised?

There are degrees of hypnotic trances, but if you are willing to be hypnotised, you can be hypnotised.
