Modern Advanced Hypnotherapy is a pro-active process that can create positive change. It combines conversational style with a speedy form of psychotherapy. It is not passive, there is no spell and you keep control. It is a powerful and dynamic therapy because it allows you to actively ‘try on’ and ‘rehearse’ new beliefs and behaviours in a safe way, with heightened thought and feeling. In essence, you don’t just ‘talk it’, you ‘walk the talk too’. This convinces your subconscious that positive choices for change are for your benefit, so you are better conditioned to move forward successfully as you choose to embrace change.
Hypnosis is a process that combines relaxation with focussed attention. When you’re in hypnosis, your conscious mind is less active. This allows the subconscious to become more accessible. Your conscious mind is just quiet and resting, but still alert — I like to think of it as the guard in the sentry box at the palace. Very still, but very observant. You remain aware, just relaxed — so you know that you could just open your eyes and be your normal self instantly.
Classical Hypnotherapy mainly uses suggestion and guided imagery, whereas Advanced Hypnotherapy uses psychotherapeutic and conversational techniques in hypnosis. In this way, I act as a facilitator to guide you in your thoughts, to achieve a greater understanding of your issues and start to find new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
