What is Hypnotherapy and how does it help?
Hypnotherapy is a therapy that uses hypnosis, which is a natural trance like state in which you feel relaxed but fully in control. Hypnosis is not a therapy in itself, but a natural tool that is used to access the unconscious mind. This is the part of the mind where emotions and memories are stored and where the 'fight or flight' response is activated. When the unconscious mind is accessed various psychotherapy and psychological techniques are used to facilitate positive change.
Hypnotherapy is particularly effective where patterns of behaviour and emotional responses such as fear and anxiety are involved, and in creating lasting positive change by helping to retrain your brain and create new neural pathways.
Since the 18 th century techniques have been continuously studied and refined, leading to the modern science of hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of issues including:
Hypnotherapy can help to alleviate anxiety relatively quickly and can help with generalised anxiety, exam anxiety, fear of public speaking or anxiety in various recurring situations etc.
Some of the key benefits of hypnotherapy is that it can break the patterns of recurrent anxiety. It can address negative thinking and cognitive distortions that arise in the subconscious mind and cause anxiety. It can help to programme in new behaviours and responses in situations that were previously fearful or stressful. And it is also helpful in working with the mind-body system to alleviate physical effects of anxiety.
