Hypnotherapy in London
Hypnotherapy is an effective, long-established and evidence based therapy that combines different hypnotic techniques. It is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
Hypnotherapy utilises hypnosis, a state of altered consciousness in which the client can access deeper levels of awareness to allow beneficial changes to take place. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind and it is part of everyday life. Every time our mind wanders, daydreams or is focused on something, such as reading a book, driving a familiar route or watching a film we are in a state of hypnosis. The difference between Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is that Hypnosis is the naturally occurring state you enter a few times per day. It is a slightly altered state of consciousness or focused relaxation.

- Stop smoking
- Panic attacks

The session – what to expect
Before the session you will be asked to give a history of the problem and then discuss your goals for the Holistic therapy. All the information from the client will be treated confidentially and will not be divulged without the full consent of the client.
During the sessions, which usually last between 30 and 45 minutes, I will invite you to close your eyes and listen to my voice while I will guide you to a deep state of relaxation. Many people do not fall asleep during the session. Your eyes will be closed and you will be relaxed, but aware of what is happening around you. If you do fall asleep, the important thing to remember is that your unconscious mind remembers everything.
After a session you may feel uplifted, lighter and very relaxed. Often changes take place on different levels and result in a positive shift in how you are feeling.
To stop smoking only requires one session, while in all other cases more than one session may be needed.
Hypnotherapy is a cooperation between the therapist and the client and it is completely safe. It is important to emphasise that hypnotherapy is not a magic pill, as it requires the client to take responsibility and commit to change.
