HYPNOTHERAPY is a well known method of assistance for stopping smoking, nail biting, losing weight, overcoming a fear of flying, driving or visiting the dentist.
It can also be of help in more physical conditions such as hypertension, pain, tinnitus or stress related illness; The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS.
HYPNOANALYSIS is an analytical style of hypnotherapy that seeks to address the underlying cause of a problem rather than merely tinker with the symptoms. Ideal for conditions doctors usually refer to as "Medically Unexplained Symptoms", - this would include anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and sexual problems - or where there are multiple issues that need addressing. Alternatively, you may just want a course of therapy to sort out an aspect of your life - behavioural change or a rather less specific " something inside yourself but outside of your control " for instance. If so, hypnoanalysis can provide an insight into yourself that no other therapy can give.
Despite what you may have seen on the stage or television, hypnosis is not sleep nor is it mind control - you remain alert and aware throughout and you cannot be made to do anything that is against your will or nature. And NO, you really can't get stuck in the hypnotic state!
I have a wide and eclectic training in hypnotherapy, my most recent being in advanced psychotherapy techniques with the world renowned Terence Watts at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis.
