About Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy:

Hypnosis has been used for many years as a way of helping people to make positive changes in their lives. Hypnosis, in one form or another, has been used as a method of helping people successfully recover from issues and problems for generations. It provides a key to the subconscious mind to help people achieve their goals and has been successfully used to help them manage pain, emotional distress, achieve success, and even overcome phobias, anxiety and depression. It is the mind that controls our bodies and emotions and tapping into this fundamental fact is what makes hypnosis so powerful.

Hypnotherapy is a collaboration between you and your hypnotherapist. Nobody can make you do anything that you don’t want to do, and no-one can hypnotise you against your will, as your subconscious mind will simply reject any suggestions that are inappropriate for you.

Hypnotherapy works by bypassing the conscious mind, where our logical thought processes take place. Suggestions are made to your subconscious mind, the part of your mind responsible for patterns of behaviour.

Through hypnotherapy a state of creative focus is enabled that promotes change to a currently held belief. By using positive imagery and suggestion, I encourage you to concentrate on, and consider, alternative outcomes to any given event.

What Happens:

Hypnotherapy can help you achieve your goals by identifying where you want to be and the steps that need to be taken for you to achieve them. Each session begins with a discussion designed to encourage  positive thought and problem solving. This part of the session uses techniques that help you to focus on how you want things to be in your life, rather than focusing on the problem.

Once we have established the changes you are looking for, and you have a clear idea of your preferred future, we will have the hypnosis part of your session to consolidate the steps you need to achieve positive change, consolidate that positivity, and find resolution from past issues. The suggestions Annette makes to you during this part of your therapy will enable the subconscious part of your mind to make your preferred future a reality.

Before the therapy sessions begin it is recommended that you have an initial consultation. This is a free session online, or in-person for a fee and lasts about 45 minutes. The initial consultation is an opportunity to assess what you want to achieve and see if hypnotherapy is suitable for you.

During the initial consultation Annette will explain how the brain works how problems are created, and how hypnotherapy can help you to overcome your problems or difficulties, as well as discuss how many sessions you are likely to need.
