What is Hypnotherapy?

Stacks Image 2656
There are many forms of talking therapy, but hypnotherapy sets itself apart in the way that the hypnotherapist works with the client's subconscious mind. In clinical practice the hypnotherapist guides the client into a pleasantly relaxed state of mind and body, and then works with the client's rich imagination using a varied set of techniques.

Over time the conscious mind forms beliefs which can be damaging or limiting:

"I can't do this..."

"I always do that..."

"I don't deserve..."

I'm not strong enough to..."


Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions,sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations of therapeutic goals desired. The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual.

Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal. It is often used to help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, help to address bedwetting, address attitudes to weight, and help clients achieve behavioural change to stop smoking. It may also help with minor skin conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking. Hypnotherapy may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain.

Hypnotherapy has also been used with both adults and children to help manage the pain associated with irritable bowel. There is evidence to support its use in this condition for both adults and children and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to respond to simple prescribed medicine.

In order to change we need to find a way past these beliefs and ideas, hypnotherapy provides us with that route. Many people struggle with problems or bad habits for years. Hypnotherapy works with the client's full permission to enable them to make positive, lasting changes with ease.
My Well-Being Clinic is about being able to achieve balance in your life. Happiness can only be achieved if there is balance between the physical, the mental, the spiritual and the social/emotional environment.
Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
Thomas Merton
We can listen to our bodies by ensuring we eat properly and exercise regulary without causing injury. Our mental stability is met by stimulation and relaxation. The spiritual side does not have to be about religion, but about our inner beliefs that should be nourished which can be through music, meditation and even laughter or good humour. Our social/emotional environment needs are important to us as they include our families and friends.
