Myths about Hypnosis:
No control: A properly qualified therapist has a duty of care to ensure that you feel comfortable and in control of your treatment at all times. You have freedom during hypnosis should you wish to do so. You will NEVER be forced to do anything that you do not want to do.
No evidence: There is a mountain of scientific evidence to support the use of hypnosis as an effective treatment for pain, anxiety, depression and phobias. In fact the more we learn about neuro psychotherapy the wider the application for hypnosis.
Not me: Many people are surprised at how hypnotisable they actually are. I have the privilege of working with many people as a psychotherapist and clinical hypnotherapist using hypnosis to enable them to be free from anxiety and addictions.
Clinical hypnosis is most effective when the patient expresses a willingness to participate in the treatment, has the motivation for change and feels comfortable and safe with the therapist. When seeking hypnotherapy, make sure that the therapist holds suitable and reputable qualifications. Beware of advertised claims of the “one session cure”.
