Some research suggests that 95% of our days are controlled by our unconscious mind. I’m sure you’ve experienced it when for example you are aware you have an issue, yet it seems you don’t have the control over it. Like knowing smoking isn’t good for you but not being able to stop. Or not being able to resist that chocolate cake. Or having a strong phobic response whilst knowing rationally that there’s no real danger.

Most of our issues stem from the unconscious mind. And this is why it is so difficult to try to change them simply with our will-power. We need an approach that actually has access to our subconscious, so we can begin to make long lasting changes.

Hypnosis is simply a technique that allows the mind and the body to relax in order to have access to the unconscious mind. Unfortunately there are a lot of myths around hypnosis, such as mind control. You may have seen hypnotists seemingly take control of their subject, however this is stage-hypnotism. Hypnotherapy is completely different.

During a hypnotherapy session, you are totally in charge of what’s happening. You are fully aware of what is being said and done, and at any moment you can choose to come back to a full awaken state. When you’re hypnotised, it feels like when you’re about to fall asleep or when you’re day dreaming. You’re very relaxed but still in control of yourself.

Your hypnotherapist is merely here to guide you into the part of your unconscious mind that will help you make the changes you wish for. Our code of conduct is fully approved and regulated by the British Institute of Hypnotherapy so you are in safe hands.

What can hypnotherapy help me with?

Hypnotherapy is very effective for most issues that you feel you haven’t been able to change consciously. From stop smoking to weight loss, or for deeper issues such as self-esteem, confidence, stress and anxiety or even deep trauma and abuse, Hypnotherapy especially combined with NLP and life coaching is a wonderful approach to change your life quickly and permanently.
