What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a state of highly focused concentration and heightened awareness. You unknowingly experience this natural state every day. It's just a way of tuning out distracting thoughts, and focusing your attention, just as you do when you're daydreaming, or when totally absorbed in a film, book, TV show, or favourite hobby, or even when driving.

Hypnosis is thought to work by altering your state of consciousness, in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is quietened down, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. This allows the unconscious mind to come to the fore, where it is able to accept suggestions more easily. The unconscious mind contains all your memories and experiences, and controls your automatic thoughts and behaviours, and this is the part which has to change for your behaviour and physical state to alter.

What is hypnotherapy?

In hypnotherapy you are guided into hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. It is literally therapy done while in hypnosis and can be thought of as an effective and speedy form of psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy can change your patterns of behaviour and perceptions, enabling irrational fears, phobias, habits, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. With the help of the hypnotherapist, you are able to look at problems differently and maybe discover solutions to problems that had been missed before. Hypnotherapy and NLP can treat many of the things that you would normally visit a counsellor or psychotherapist for and a lot more.

Using hypnosis to gain access to the unconscious mind allows the therapist to suggest positive and beneficial ideas which become firmly planted in your unconscious. It is also possible to recall and resolve past memories which relate to current blockages. Old, outdated and inappropriate patterns of behaviour can be dropped, in favour of new and more rewarding ways of being.

It is generally assumed that hypnotherapy is limited to dealing with problems such as smoking and excess weight, however a major part of a hypnotherapist's practice is in dealing with such problems as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, as well as physical complaints such as migraine, arthritis, digestive disorders, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and numerous psychosomatic illnesses.


Are there any dangers in hypnosis?

There are no substantiated cases of harm befalling any hypnotised subject. The British Medical Association approved hypnotherapy as a valid medical treatment in 1955 and the American Medical Association followed in 1958.

 

Location

I practice from both my home and a local complementary health clinic, both located in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in South Manchester, close to junction 7 & 8 of the M60 and the end of the M56. Within easy travelling distance of areas in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Derbyshire. I see the majority of my clients in a consulting room in my home, but if you would prefer to see me at the complementary health clinic instead then do please let me know when booking your appointment.

 

Booking a Consultation

I offer an Initial Consultation, this gives us the chance to discuss your problems further, answer any questions you might have and give you an estimate of the number of sessions you may require. Most issues can be very quickly dealt with in around three to four sessions, for more deep rooted or complex problems, possibly five or more may be required. However as we are all unique individuals, you decide when you have reached resolution. It is always my aim to help you resolve your issues as quickly as possible.

My services can be combined and tailored to your individual or company needs, and range from one to one private therapy or coaching sessions through to group training and workshops.

When you are committed to making the inner changes you need, to achieve the life you want, simply phone me on 0161 881 4333 or to make an appointment now.
