Hypnotherapy is a very safe and relaxing mind therapy that has transformed the lives of many people in a positive way.

How can hypnotherapy help me?

Hypnotherapy is most well known for it’s ability to change habits and behaviours such as stopping smoking and weight loss. It also has a very high success rate in treating phobias such as fear of flying or fear of needles. However you may be surprised to know that because hypnotherapy works with the emotional brain, it can be used successfully to boost confidence, reduce anxiety and reduce the effects of emotional trauma. Gouri also works with adults and children who stammer, to help unravel the emotional complexity of this condition.

Gouri specialises in Hypnobirthing, a therapy which can empower you to have a more fulfilling childbirth experience, free from fear. She uses advanced hypnotherapy, incorporating Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), meditation and mindfulness.

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. Hypnotherapy accesses the mind at its subconscious level, offering a path of change in which many people experience dramatic results after their first session.

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

Prior to your sessions we will explore and discuss your needs in detail, together with any potential root causes of your issue. We will then make a plan for your hypnotherapy, that you feel comfortable with. Usually a few sessions are needed to achieve your goals.

During the sessions you will sit or lie down and will typically be taken into a deep and pleasant state of relaxation during which suggestions will be presented to you. Time is given for feedback and discussion of anything you may wish to explore in more detail.

Gouri always provides personalised recordings for your use at home, to enhance the effectiveness of your therapy.

Is it safe?

Yes, it’s as safe as reading a good book. Many people think of hypnosis as being put to sleep, however this is not the case. You will enter a highly relaxed and pleasant state, similar to daydreaming or when you are absorbed in a good book.

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 behavioural 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. Building a good rapport between the client and the hypnotherapist is really important so sometimes trying someone new can be very helpful.

Please feel free to contact the clinic if you have any specific concerns or questions about your treatment.
