What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a skilled talking therapy which is used during hypnosis. It looks to help you direct your imagination in order to bring you desired changes in your thoughts, emotions and behaviour whilst experiencing a sense of deep relaxation.

Hypnotherapy can help you manage a variety of problems. These issues could include medical, dental and psychological conditions. It can also be used to encourage you to incorporate exercise in to your life, stop smoking and lose weight.

What can I expect in my first Hypnotherapy session?

If you are considering Hypnotherapy for the first time, you may want to know what to expect to help you feel more at ease.

In your first session, your therapist will explain the process of hypnosis and how it is used during Hypnotherapy. You will then be able to tell them about your own goals for seeking this type of therapy. The therapist will then use this information to better understand your problem and will give you guidelines about:

– How many sessions you will have

– What type of therapy they will use

– How much will it cost

– What happens if you miss a session

– If you can contact them between sessions

When you feel you have found a therapist with whom you feel comfortable with you can schedule a session.  Sessions of Hypnotherapy usually last 50 – 60 minutes, but in some cases can last longer. If this is the case your therapist will discuss this with you in advance.
