Many of us will have things happen at one time or another with which we struggle to cope. Counselling is a chance to talk, and for someone to listen without judgement or opinion. This may be the first step towards identifying and managing these difficult times, providing more clarity, focus and a chance to go forward. Hypnotherapy is not magic. For this to be successful it is important that the client has the desire and motivation to change any unwanted behaviours (weight management, smoking, anxiety, stress, phobias and habits to name a few). We will start by finding out about you and what exactly you would like to achieve with your hypnotherapy session. We will also explore how hypnotherapy works, and the most suitable plan based on your individual needs.
Mindfulness: When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than returning the past or imagining the future. This also means we can teach ourselves to maintain a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.
Talking can be a really effective way of enabling you to take control of your life, work things out and overcome whatever is impacting negatively on you. Ask yourself, how often is it you have the chance to sit and talk or even just be, for a full uninterrupted hour do not have such chance. Therefore the privacy, confidentially of the therapy room and what Counselling offers, can provide the opportunity to talk about thoughts and feelings which you might otherwise feel unable to share.
Hypnosis refers to one embracing the Hypnotic state, meaning we are better able to respond to suggestions . Therefore, Hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviours, such as stopping smoking or nail biting. It can also help people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating pain.
Given the challenges we face, such as the above, we can not always ' go with the flow', Mindfulness presents the chance to practise this, by bringing focus to the present.. In mindfulness practice and meditation, once you establish concentration, you observe the flow of inner thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations without judging them as good or bad. We learn how to pay attention to ourselves, thoughts and behaviours. You also notice external sensations such as sounds, sights, and touch that make up your moment-to-moment experience.
