Transformational Tools For Taking Control of Your Life
Hypnotherapy is a way that client and therapist can work together to identify where
a person is in their life, where they want to be, and what it is that seems to be
stopping them. This might be a person wanting to lose weight, someone wanting to
be more confident, an individual wanting to boost their own healing response, for
pain relief, anxiety relief, and as many other reasons as there are people.
A therapist does not tell you what to do. He or she will assist you to appreciate
where you are right now in real terms, and help you to plan your voyage of transformation
to the goals you have set yourself. Sometimes even knowing what your goals are can
be a challenge, and your therapist will help you with this.
Once we agree what you want to change, we can look at different ways to help you
to relax, to feel like you do during those moments when your mind is very focused,
like when totally engaged in a film you might be watching. That’s what is called
It is a heightened state of suggestibility that helps us tap into the resources hidden
within you. In that state we can try to change how you think or feel about certain
things that are causing you problems, and identify tools and techniques to achieve
your goals. Like the ‘watching TV trance’, the ‘reading a book trance’, you can
leave the trance we create any time you wish.
We will have discussed beforehand the issues you would like to address and the trance
is simply a way of recruiting your subconscious to work with you towards your goals.
We will take as few sessions as possible to help you reach your goals, or to move
along the path towards them. As with the trance, you will decide when you feel you
have reached a positive point from which you can go on alone.
Hypnotherapy is not simply the use of hypnosis. It includes a range of techniques
that might differ from therapist to therapist, based on their training, experience
and personal preference.
At Fountain of Health, whilst we can offer you a range of treatments in isolation
from each other within hypnotherapy the techniques might be drawn not solely from
clinical hypnosis, but might include Neuro Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, stimulation of Acupressure
points, breathing and movement techniques from Chi Kung, and so on. The techniques
offered would be relevant to the difficulties you attend with, and would be used
only with your permission.
It needs to be mentioned that hypnotherapy is not a passive therapy; it is not something
you turn up to and have ‘things’ done to you. It is a collaboration between your
therapist and your self.
