Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. It is a powerful, scientifically proven tool for helping you to make the changes that you want to make happen. It uses a state of relaxation, often called the trance state, to access your subconscious mind to introduce and reinforce positive patterns of emotion and thought. The most simple definition of hypnosis is a temporary state of mind.
No. You will be in control at all times. Many peoples understanding of hypnosis is, unfortunately, from stage shows. This is not to be confused with hypnotherapy. Another concern is that clients are made to forget what happened. You will always remember anything that you need to under hypnosis.
No. You will choose what you want to do. You will choose what is safe and comfortable for you to say. The primary experience in hypnotherapy is one of relaxation. You will always be able to say no. My professional code of conduct is founded on creating a safe and relaxing experience. I abide by strict codes of confidentiality.
Many practioners use a variety of techniques. I use a client-centred approach. What is fundamental, is your intention. First we establish what you want to achieve and then frame that in a set of positive goals to achieve the change you desire. The therapeutic session involves counseling and hypnosis.
I am happy to take any questions, please email me with any concerns you may have.
I am completing the final stages of a Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy (Dip AH) accredited with The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. I have a Certificate in Hypnosis NLP and Positive Psychology with The Scottish Centre of NLP .
Each session lasts an hour. The initial consultation is when we establish what the changes are you want to make and it may take a little longer.
This varies depending on the client, the presenting issue and the use of tools and techniques by the client. Most issues can be addressed in 1-6 sessions.
I am based in Forres, Morayshire. Initially I am holding sessions in the comfort of your own home. I will be offering sessions at my home by June 2019.
Satisfied clients is of fundamental importance to me. We will review and monitor your level of comfort and satisfaction at each session.
As of 2019, the price per consultation or session is £50. If, after the initial consultation, you feel that you do not want to continue, there will be no charge.
Please contact me if you feel that money is a barrier for you making the changes you want.
Yes. In most cases, you will be given audio files to practice with at home. With some issues, you will only receive the full benefit of the sessions if you practice some self hypnosis. You will need to commit to your own development.
The first session is a consultation. We will discuss your intentions. I will ask many questions and make notes. Together, we will create a plan for the following sessions. I will introduce relaxations techniques.
