What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?
When most people think about Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy, or when it is reported in the press they are almost always referring to “clinical Hypnosis”. (Also known as “suggestion Therapy”).
Suggestion Therapy (Clinical Hypnosis) does exactly “what it says on the tin” in that clients are relaxed into a light to medium state of Hypnosis by the Hypnotherapist and whilst in this highly suggestible state are given a number of carefully worded suggestions designed to have an impact upon the symptoms that have been consulted for.
Along with positive suggestions you will be encouraged to use visualisation techniques to help you to tap into your powerful imagination known to influence your thoughts and feelings quite significantly. There is a well known saying in Psychological circles which states that “if you can’t imagine it, you can’t achieve it” and there is a lot of evidence to support this view.
It is these new strategies of visualisation and thinking that can have a very positive effect on the way that you feel and help you to deal with your Phobia or Worries in a new way.
If, for example, you consulted me to help you to get over nerves about having to make a wedding speech then we would be giving you suggestions to help you feel calm, relaxed and totally in control of the way that you feel. We would help you to visualise (imagine) giving your speech in this calm, relaxed and effective way and by doing this you will be then able to “link” this imagined experience with the real experience when it occurs.
In fact, the session will help you to understand and reduce the amount of worry and concern connected with “feeling judged by others” (Social Phobia) and help you to realise that you do NOT need to be perfect, you just need to be YOU!
The experience of one of my Clinical Hypnotherapy sessions in which you will discover a new level of relaxation can have quite a profound effect on you and you will certainly leave the clinic feeling very relaxed, confident and able to think about your problem in a whole new light.
