Hypnotherapy, is an altered state of awareness. Hypnosis is not an unconscious state. A good hypnotherapist will guide you into a relaxed, receptive, responsive and comfortable state known as trance. Most of us experience hypnotic states naturally during the course of our lives, whilst becoming absorbed in a book or TV programme, meditating or daydreaming and just before falling asleep, when our breathing and heart rate slows, and our muscles relax. Hypnotherapy is a completely natural phenomenon. You can open your eyes at any time. You are always in control.
Clinical Hypnotherapy when practised by a professionally trained and qualified Hypnotherapist is very safe. Whilst in hypnosis you have complete control over your actions at all times. I am an advanced clinical hypnotherapist, trained to a very high standard, and registered with the CNHC and the General Hypnotherapy Register.
Yes, the BMA issued a report in 1955 stating that hypnosis was a valuable medical tool.
Most people of average intelligence and not suffering from a mental illness like psychosis, or under the influence of drugs, or alcohol can usually be hypnotised. Hypnotherapy is a natural state. No one can be hypnotised against their will.
In my clinic in Martinvale, Martin, near Deal in Kent, I would tailor individual hypnotherapy and powerful cutting-edge techniques to suit you, and your problem. As a general guide, during the first session we would discuss your problem, how it affects you and what you want to achieve. When you are ready, I then would guide you into a deeply relaxed and comfortable state of hypnosis. The induction process takes many forms, depending on the problem you want to resolve. You will be aware of your surroundings at all times and have complete control over your thoughts, words and actions. People generally find hypnotherapy is a very enjoyable and comfortable state of complete relaxation.
Hypnotherapy performed by a professional hypnotherapist bypasses the critical conscious part of the brain, and communicates with the unconscious brain, this is the part that performs our day to day activities that we’re not consciously aware of, we don’t analyse every time we take a step forward or swallow, these actions are under the control of our unconscious mind. As you enter a hypnotic state you become less aware of your surroundings and very aware of your inner thoughts and feelings. Your subconscious mind is now very responsive to positive suggestions, now using advanced techniques, changes to negative thought patterns and behaviours can now be made. You will always be in complete control. You cannot be made to do anything against your will. There is more scientific evidence for the benefits of Hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy.
