self-hypnosisAll hypnosis is self-hypnosis. There is actually no such thing as a hypnotist! With a little training, anyone can learn to guide themselves into a hypnotic state. Although there are those in the world of entertainment, and indeed some therapists, who would like you to believe otherwise, there is no mind control involved. I can assure you that were I able to control people's minds I would be starting with politicians and world leaders and not smokers and slimmers!

Self-hypnosis is something that all clients learn. As you become familiar with what trance feels like, it becomes something that you are naturally drawn towards. It is a safe, relaxed place where you can leave the world outside for a while and allow the subconscious mind to solve problems in an effortless way. Anyone who practices meditation, mindfulness or yoga will know exactly what I mean.

This is something you can do at any time of the day, for as long or short a time as you like. It might be with eyes open or eyes closed. You are in control, and it is a good feeling and a good skill to learn.

CirclesEven if you have no presenting symptom to visit a therapist with, you might want to consider a session to learn these skills. It could make a tremendous change to your quality of life, helping you control negative emotions, sleep more easily and deal with stress in a way you never thought possible.

Coronavirus Covid-19

The current pandemic situation is difficult for everyone, but especially those already suffering from anxiety issues. I want to continue to help as much as I can.

Social distancing guidelines now mean that I am unable to offer face to face therapy for the next few weeks, but I haven't gone away totally. If you need to call to talk to someone please don't hesitate to do so. In some cases it may be possible to arrange therapy sessions by Skype, FaceTime or similar.

I'm here to help.
