What Sort of Therapy?
Hypnotherapy is a natural state of deep relaxation, during which very powerful change can be bought about. It is similar to being in a state of day dreaming or light sleep, where you are still aware of your surroundings and able to react normally but also more receptive to suggestion, more able to access memories, and, with help, change disruptive patterns of thought or behaviour.
Almost everyone is capable of being hypnotised. It is not a trick and if you do not want to be hypnotised it is very unlikely that you will be. The general rule seems to be that the more open minded and creative a person you are, the easier and deeper an experience you will find it.
Psychotherapy is an umbrella term for a range of ‘talking therapies’ such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Inner Child work, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt etc. All of these therapies aim to explore the client’s present and past to understand where difficulties may have arisen which have led to problems in the present, and to help the client deal with and move on from those difficulties.
NLP works very much in the here and now and helps the client develop new ways of thinking, speaking and acting to change limiting feelings and behaviour, often quite dramatically within a short space of time.
Which therapy is right for me?
We may find that just one of these therapies works best for your, or maybe all of them! We are all unique individuals and react differently to given situations. In our free half an hour consultation, we will discuss your issues and talk about how you would like things to be. From there, I would suggest a way forward, using any or all of these techniques, with the sole intention of making you feel better about your life and yourself.
