Hypnosis works by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for the client's behaviour and physical state to alter.
For example; A person who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders, may try everything they consciously can to do it, but will still fail as long as their subconscious mind retains this terror and reverts them from succeeding. Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious mind so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.
Firstly, any misconceptions a potential client may have about hypnosis should be dispelled. The technique does not involve the client being put into a deep sleep and the client cannot be made to do anything they would not ordinarily do. They remain fully aware of their surroundings and situation, and are not vulnerable to every given command of the therapist. The important thing is that the client wants to change some behavioural habit or addiction, and is highly motivated to do so. They must have to want the treatment to work and must establish a good clinical rapport with the therapist in order for it to do so…
The readiness and ability of clients to be hypnotised varies considerably, and hypnotherapy generally requires several sessions in order to achieve meaningful results.
£50.00 for the first session (takes 2 hours) which includes taking client medical history, the agreement with the client about treatment and the first hypnosis session.
Thereafter £45 per hour session depending on the agreed treatment plan with the client.
