Expert Hypnotherapy in East Yorkshire
Many of us know someone who has had hypnotherapy to help them stop smoking or lose weight, but hypnosis can be used for many other problems and issues too.
- Anyone can be effectively hypnotised if they want to be.
- Hypnotherapy cannot be used to control people. You cannot be hypnotised against your will. For hypnosis to happen, you have to want it to happen.
- It is just as safe as any other form of psychological therapy.
- There are more scientific studies and articles published on the subject of hypnotherapy than on any other type of psychotherapy.
- You cannot get stuck in hypnosis. If I were to faint while hypnotising you you would either open one eye to check where I’ve gone or fall into a peaceful sleep.
What does hypnotherapy feel like?
There are no specific feelings associated with being in hypnosis because everyone experiences it differently. It’s similar to drifting off to sleep at night, when you’re not quite awake and not quite asleep. You may experience a sense of weightlessness or you might experience a feeling of heaviness as your muscles begin to relax, or you may not feel any different at all, just very relaxed. However hypnosis feels for you, all you need to do is relax and see where the experience takes you. Many of my clients consider their sessions to be like a massage of the mind and they absolutely love it!
Is hypnotherapy guaranteed to work?
There are lots of different factors that can affect the outcome of your therapy, these include our level of rapport and the problem you are seeking help for, but the most important factor is your level of motivation, commitment and participation. This is vital if you are to have a positive outcome. Because of this, no responsible hypnotherapist could make any promise or guarantee that hypnotherapy will definitely work for you or that your problem(s) will be completely resolved. What I can promise you, is that using my skills and experience, I will do my very best to help you achieve your goals.
Here are the results of a comparative study produced in American Health Magazine :
- Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
- Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
How many sessions will I need?
Anywhere between one and six sessions is usual, although with particularly complex issues further sessions are sometimes required. My aim is to get you to where you want to be in as few sessions as possible.
Will I reveal things I don’t want to?
You’ll be aware of everything that you say during hypnosis so you can’t be made to reveal anything that you don’t want to. You have to remember though why you are seeing a hypnotherapist. In order for you to benefit fully from hypnotherapy, I need to know all about the problem or issue, including any relevant background information and contributing factors. I work on a deep level so I need to get to the root of the problem not just treat the symptoms. Hypnotherapy is a two-way process and it’s important that we can trust and have confidence in each other.
Are you a qualified hypnotherapist?
I successfully completed a diploma in Trance Induction in 2007 and a diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy in 2011. I’m a member of both the UK Guild of Hypnotist Examiners and The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured to practice.
