Hypnosis Explained

Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state – similar to a daydream – in which you are in total control but very relaxed in body and mind.

During hypnosis you are awake, and can be more aware of what is taking place than usual. A person in this state can converse quite easily although probably can’t be bothered to move or open their eyes.

To induce you into a state of hypnosis, I use my voice along with tensing and relaxing various muscles, taking deep breaths and imaging relaxation flowing down. This technique is suitable for both face-to-face and virtual sessions. You then feel physically relaxed but more mentally alert and your past memories are then more easily accessible.

There are three basic types of hypnosis therapy:-

Suggestion therapy
Simple suggestions are made as to how you could think, feel and behave in order to resolve a problem.
Analytical therapy
We find out from your unconscious mind what is causing a problem.
Regression therapy
A way of accessing past memories which are the original cause of the problems bothering you in the present.

I was astonished by the results after only a few sessions with Nicola. I have always been very interested in hypnotherapy, but I was a bit sceptical as to what can be achieved. The results truly amazed me. I could not believe how different I felt. Prior to seeing Nicola, I was struggling with all different issues, being overly paranoid, jealous, struggling to control my anger, I had a lack of confidence and was generally not feeling very good inside. After working with Nicola, I felt so calm, happy and confident inside. To go and see Nicola was the best decision I have ever made. (female client in her thirties)
