What is analytical hypnotherapy?

Simply speaking, all hypnotherapy works with the subconscious part of your mind – where we store our memories.  In order to do this, relaxation techniques are used to by-pass the conscious mind in order to access the subconscious mind, where the subconscious mind will be open for suggestion.  Analytical hypnotherapy differs from many types of hypnotherapy as it deals with the root cause rather than the symptom.

What happens in a hypnotherapy session?

Having already conducted a consultation with the client, I will confirm the details that were taken at the consultation stage to ensure that the details are still the same before the hypnotherapy session begins.

I will use a variety of techniques to relax the client and get them into a state of hypnosis with a view to the client looking back at past memories and/or trauma.  Please be advised that this is a very investigative approach and can sometimes be very painful.  Hard work and determination is needed for this type of hypnotherapy.  As an analytical hypnotherapist myself, I have also had to undergo this therapy (as part of my training) and from my own experience, and that from the testimonies of my colleagues, it is a very effective therapy indeed.  Please do get in touch with me for further information.

Will I be in control?

Absolutely, 100% yes, you will be in control during hypnosis and will be aware of what is happening. I will work collaboratively with you; think of me as merely guiding you as you engage in the hypnotherapy process.

Will hypnotherapy work on me?

Hypnotherapy will work on anyone who is willing to participate and follow instructions – no one can be hypnotised against their will.  If you don’t believe that hypnotherapy will work on you then it won’t. However, if you come to the sessions with the belief that it will work then hey presto it will!  My advice for those who aren’t sure is to come to the sessions with an open mind.

How long will it take to get the required results? 

This really does depend on the individual and the type of hypnotherapy that the client is engaged in. As an example, when it comes to smoking cessation, we are looking at one session.  Weight loss is between 6-8 sessions.  This is because we either smoke or we don’t but we do have to eat therefore, hypnosis will be ‘relearning’ the client’s subconscious mind to make healthier choices.  The number of sessions really does depend on different circumstances and this will be discussed at the consultation stage.
