Hypnotherapy is simply a means of achieving a state of deep relaxation, which in turn allows the unconscious mind to be highly receptive to positive influences and suggestions. The subject is fully in control at all times, just very deeply relaxed. At the end of a session most people feel physically refreshed and mentally motivated, as though they have experienced a really good sleep.
Hypnotherapy can be useful in the treatment of many conditions, including fears and phobias, interview or presentation anxiety and breaking bad habits and we are experienced in helping with all of these.
Our particular interest lies in helping people with depression, anxiety or stress and also physical conditions, which are made worse by stress or depression such as Globus Hystericus, IBS, insomnia.
We also work with sportsmen and women; helping them to achieve their goals, whether this is overcoming the yips in golf, reducing competition nerves or even coaching teams to perform better together.
