Clinical Hypnosis in Nottingham and Derbyshire
What is Clinical Hypnosis?
Also referred to as Hypnotherapy - this is the use of 'Hypnosis' for promoting well-being, and other therapeutic purposes (rather than for entertainment, or 'Stage Hypnosis').
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis could be referred to as a state of trance - a state of focused and relaxed awareness anywhere between being awake and asleep. Trance is a natural state that we enter easily every day.
Have you ever driven along the road, and not remembered the last mile you drove? Or, read a page of a book and forgotten it all!? This is trance. Have you ever watched a film and 'zoned out' - this is likely the trance state too.
During a session, this natural state is enhanced to assist your subconscious mind in creating your desired changes.
After a state of Hypnosis is created, and enhanced, often verbal suggestions and imagery is used to help you in achieving your goals, or making any positive change. Or, sometimes other processes are involved i.e. to desensitise an old unwanted fear/phobia. Or perhaps, to resolve any inner conflict - where you might feel torn about wanting to stop a particular behaviour, but somehow another part does not - such as with 'comfort eating'.
Unlike some talking therapies, utilising the trance state, you are able to connect more readily with your subconscious mind - where beliefs, behaviours and experiences are stored and operated from. Making a connection with the subconscious allows for change to occur at a deeper level than can be achieved through the conscious mind alone.
What will I experience during Hypnosis?
Everyone has their own individual experience of trance, though clients frequently report experiencing a pleasant deep relaxation, and a sense of experiencing an altered state, yet remain fully in control.
I offer appointments close to both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with convenient free parking available just across from the practice.
