Ideal for people who want to try hypnotherapy before committing to a full program. You will be able to determine if you like (or even enjoy) the hypnotic sensations as well as if you feel comfortable and can form a working relationship with your therapist.
For most people 3 sessions is the optimum plan for a successful outcome. The first session is information gathering – where you are now, where you want to be, how are we going to get there? Then tests for hypnotisability and the first hypnotherapy session. There usually is some self help tools for you to practice between sessions. The second session starts with an assessment of the previous week and whether or not some modifications should be made to the plan, followed by the second hypnotherapy session. The third session completes and closes off the plan allowing for change to continue on to its natural and full inclusion into your subconscious. This program is ideal for single issue change and is flexible enough to add sessions as and if required as only you will know when you have reached your satisfactory outcome.
If you have had psychotherapy in the past you will be struck by the difference between it and hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is, for the most part, content free. That is we don’t tend to re-hash whether you were bottle fed or breast fed as a baby, whether your siblings or schoolmates picked on or bullied you or any one of the millions of reasons or excuses for you being where you find yourself today. All we need to know in order to help you is that you know where you are at today, you know what you don’t like about where you are now and you have a clear and real desire to change. Some of us have multiple related issues that would benefit from intensive consecutive treatments structured to maximise the effects of the changes, in a sequential fashion. Or perhaps the issue is so deeply rooted that a series of gentle coaxing sessions is required to unravel and ease apart the co-dependent aspects of the issue. Change for changes sake is never to be considered the end game. Change in a hypnotic sense must have at it’s core a means to an end, a pathway to your overall, well defined desired outcome. Just as no-ones personal circumstances are the same, so too are no-ones paths to their own desired outcomes the same. What some may be able to achieve in 3 sessions may well take someone else 5, 7 or even 10 sessions to achieve. We achieve solutions.
Everyone knows smoking is bad for your health and eats up way too much of the weekly budget (and while we are enjoying it less and less, it is costing us more and more all the time).
70% of smokers want to quit. So why is it so hard?
Well, everyone is different but for some it’s because:
· They don’t want to put on weight.
· They don’t think they have the willpower.
· They feel that smoking relaxes them and relieves stress.
· They don’t want to go through the withdrawal symptoms.
None of these myths are true and you can come to understand this fact through hypnotherapy.
Most smokers recoup the cost of the program before the program finishes.
Stress takes up a lot of cognitive function eating into the mind power that could otherwise be put towards natural actions of everyday living. People (not just the people living with the symptoms, but their carers and loved ones as well) become stuck in this quagmire of worry, fear and anxiety. Imagine feeling your mind getting younger. Imagine thinking clearer. Imagine being calm, comfortable and relaxed.
By reducing these stressors about the future for those experiencing symptoms of dementia we can free the mind to allow a longer period of independent living, thus helping carers and loved ones. By helping the carers as well to reduce their stress the relationship between cared for and carer is far more harmonious, understanding and cooperative.
