What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a very safe and deeply relaxing mind therapy that has transformed the lives of many people in a positive way. Gouri’s use of hypnotherapy helps you to feel better quickly while becoming the best ‘you’ that you can be. Hypnotherapy can help you to overcome specific problems and at the same time increase your motivation, confidence and joy for life. The
positive benefits can stay with you for the rest of your life.

Why does hypnotherapy work?

Up to 80% of what we do happens without any conscious thought or control.  Instead, it’s powered by our subconscious mind. Unlike standard ‘talking’ therapy, hypnotherapy accesses the mind at its subconscious level, offering such a powerful path of change that many people experience dramatic results after their very first hypnotherapy session.

How can hypnotherapy help me?

Hypnotherapy can help both adults and children with many different types of problem, in fact any problem which stems from the mind can be helped by this therapy. Hypnotherapy has a high success rate in treating many problems from anxiety to unwanted habits, weight loss, exam nerves, sports performance, grief management, obsessive thinking, childbirth, smoking
cessation, self- esteem problems, stress management, stammering, and much more.

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

You will remain fully aware of where you are and will always be in control.

You will sit or lie down and will typically be taken into a deep and pleasant state of relaxation during which I will suggest positive ideas to you.

Is it safe?

Many people think of hypnosis as being put to sleep, however this is not the case. You will enter a highly relaxed and trance like state. Hypnotherapy is a safe and simple method of solving your problems.

Hypnotherapy for children.

Hypnotherapy sessions are available for a variety of childhood problems: such as Confidence, nail biting, insomnia, bed wetting, weight loss therapy, habits and phobias, stress and anxiety, stammering therapy.

Children should be at least 8 years of age and should be accompanied by a parent/carer.

Is there any medical or scientific evidence for hypnotherapy?

Yes, research shows that there is more scientific evidence for hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy.

In 1999, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a Clinical Review of current medical research on hypnotherapy and relaxation therapies, it concludes:

  • There is good evidence from randomised controlled trials that both hypnosis and relaxation techniques can reduce anxiety particularly that related to stressful situations such as receiving chemotherapy.
  • They are also effective for panic disorders and insomnia, particularly when integrated into a package of cognitive therapy (including, for example, sleep hygiene).
  • A systematic review has found that hypnosis enhances the effects of cognitive behavioral therapy for conditions such as phobia, obesity, and anxiety.

I’’ve tried hypnotherapy before and failed, is it worth another try?

Yes.  Just because hypnotherapy hasn’’t worked for you in the past, it doesn’t mean it won’t work for you now.  I have helped clients in this situation to succeed.  Building a good rapport between the client and the hypnotherapist is really important so sometimes trying someone new can be very helpful.

Gouri is happy to discuss how she can help you before you attend. Please feel free to contact the clinic if you have any specific concerns or questions about your treatment.
