Posted on 28th November 2022 at 13:24
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy that is reported to span back hundreds of years. Researchers have studied whether hypnosis can treat a variety of medical conditions, from irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety and depression. The goal for hypnotherapy is to help a patient learn to better control their state of awareness. In the case of depression, hypnotherapy sessions may be focused on helping a person achieve a state of relaxation. In this relaxed state, they can discuss their feelings and emotions without raising stress and anxiety levels.
As a trained hypnotherapist I will use a variety of relaxation techniques to help guide you into a hypnotic (relaxed) state. In this state, you are still conscious and aware. Your body becomes more relaxed and the mind more responsive to suggestions.
Hypnotherapy can help target the root cause of depression, it can aid you in learning self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques that you can use at home with the aim of creating new neural pathways in the brain and changing unwanted habits and possibly replace them with healthier behaviors and a more positive outlook on life.
It is advisable to speak to your GP prior to commencing Hypnotherapy treatment.
