What is Hypnotherapy?

 

 

 

 

 

Hypnotherapy is a natural healing of mind and body through deep relaxation and heightened awareness induced by direct suggestions.

Hypnosis is becoming more accepted as a therapy for many emotional and mental problems where the use of medication is sometimes felt to be inappropriate or could possibly result in unpleasant side effects.

Hypnotherapy can be applied to a wide range of medical, dental and psychological problems. Areas of application include anxiety and stress conditions, weight control, addictive behaviours (including smoking and alcohol) and confidence issues. Hypnotherapy is also used to enhance performance in several areas such as sport and public speaking.

What happens during Therapy?

Clinic at Bridgehouse, Shepley

Clinic at The Studio, Halifax

Initially a free consultation is given. This allows you to meet or chat with Ann to see if the Therapy, and most importantly the Therapist, is the right one for you. It is important that you get along and feel comfortable with the therapist.

Following the initial consultation a first appointment is arranged. During this session the therapist gives an outline of the treatment plan.

The calm relaxed state we call hypnosis is then induced. Once the hypnotic state is achieved, techniques are applied to help you make positive changes in line with your current needs. This is the part of the treatment we call therapy and can take in the form of suggestions, regression work, analysis or other techniques.

Following this you are very gently brought into normal waking consciousness and the session and any follow-up treatments are discussed.

After treatment you will remember everything fully and completely.
