Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
In a typical hypnotherapy session we will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals you desire. I will probably ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for you.
Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range
of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to
seek a desired goal. It is often used to help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, help
to address bedwetting, address attitudes to weight, and help clients achieve
behavioural change to stop smoking. It may also help with minor skin conditions
that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to
enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking. Hypnotherapy
may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain.
Hypnotherapy has also been used with both adults and children to help manage
the pain associated with irritable bowel. There is evidence to support its use in
this condition for both adults and children and the National Institute for Health
and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring
patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to
respond to simple prescribed medicine.
