Hypnotherapy is a technique used within therapy sessions to unlock the huge potential of the sub conscious mind. It can be possible to create powerful positive changes for the client using this technique.  

What is Hypnosis? 

Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness, in this state you are able to access the subconscious mind, receive and act upon beneficial suggestions. To help make positive changes in your life. You are in a hypnotic state several times a day.  Reading a book and lose track of time.  Hypnosis.  Driving to work and get there without being aware of your route, hypnosis! You are in hypnosis regularly without even being aware of it. 

What does hypnosis feel like?

Just as we all experience life differently so we all experience Hypnosis differently. You are always in control, no one can actually HYPNOTIZE you.  All hypnosis is in fact self hypnosis. So you can rest assured that at no time are you under the control or power of the therapist. Hypnosis is simply a tool which is utilized within a therapeutic session. It is likely you will feel relaxed and tranquil. 

Why use hypnosis? 

Hypnosis used appropriately in therapy can work swiftly, getting to the heart of a problem by bypassing what we call the conscious critical faculty (the conscious or rationale mind) and speaking directly to the subconscious mind. The driving seat for all of our emotional responses. It is here that real lasting change can take place. Hypnotherapy can often achieve in a much shorter space of time what it takes traditional talking therapies months or years to uncover.

What can Hypnotherapy be used for? 

Phobias, addictions, fears and anxiety. Mild to moderate depression as well as whole host of other symptoms such as insomnia, exam stress, fear of flying, grief, sexual dysfunction, anger management, lack of confidence, fear of intimacy, shyness, blushing, nail biting. To name just a few. 

Common Fears

I can be made to do something i don't want to. 

It is impossible for a hypnotherapist no matter how skilled they are to affect a change within you that you do not wish to happen.  Which is why I spend a great deal of time getting to understand what is driving you!  

If for instance you say you want to give up smoking as rationally you know it is costing you money and is unhealthy, but you "gain" from your smoking habit precious "you time" away from work for instance on your break, or from family when you need to just go and get air (ironically).  Then those underlying reasons mean that the technique may not be effective. 

You and your individual will are always in charge.

So when you really want to make a change and your mind and subconscious are in sync then powerful changes are possible.  

The Initial Consult 

During your initial consultation Dawn will discuss with you at length your reasons for wanting to affect a change.  We will discuss where you are now and how things are in your life at this moment in time, together with your past history.  As we are in fact the sum total of all our experiences, both comfortable and uncomfortable!  We will discuss the changes you would like to experience in your life and  then decide on the best treatment plan for you. 

You are an Individual

Each case is different so no two clients are treated in the same way. My method is to meet you where you are today, with no preconceived ideas about your story, your history or belief systems. 

How many sessions will I need? 

On occasion, as few as one session may be adequate. The number of sessions will be dependent on your needs and can be paced to suit your time and financial constraints.  As always you are in the driving seat. But a good yard stick is to start with between 3 and 6 sessions and then reassess where you are and how you wish to proceed.
