At times our lives can be extremely stressful and we’re not always aware of the unwanted effect that stress is having on us. Perhaps you have feelings of low mood or anxiety need help to overcome a fear or a boost to your confidence? Maybe you are struggling with your weight, want to get a good night’s sleep or are finding it difficult to deal with pain or illness?
The good news is that hypnotherapy can help with these and many other conditions. It can help you to make those positive changes in your life that can improve both your physical and mental well-being.
In hypnosis, you are not asleep and you can come out of the state at any time. You cannot be made to do, say or think anything that you don’t find acceptable. It can feel like the experience just before you drift off to sleep, where your mind wanders and you feel very relaxed; you are still aware and yet your body falls asleep.
Hypnosis is a completely natural state of mind which we all experience every day – we don’t notice it because it is such a natural state.
When we are in this altered state of consciousness we can make positive changes to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
What can hypnotherapy help with?
Here are some examples – please get in touch if there is another issue that you’d like help with.
Hypnotherapy can help your unconscious mind to calm down and find new ways of coping with situations that cause you anxiety and panic.
