By using a combination of techniques I can help you to make positive changes in your life. These techniques include hypnotherapy, life coaching, NLP and E.M.D.R. There is a short introduction to each below to help you gain a better understanding.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful therapeutic tool that deals with the causes of problems rather than the symptoms and is a safe and natural method of treating a wide variety of conditions, for both adults and children.
Hypnosis is a state of total physical and mental relaxation (trance state) and heightened awareness, which allows the conscious mind to be bypassed, and leaves the subconscious mind open to receive positive suggestions. The subconscious is the most dominant part of your mind. It is nature’s complex computer that stores every feeling, event, and idea you have ever heard, seen or felt. Whilst in a trance state, I can work with you to make positive, beneficial suggestions to enable you to overcome unwanted behaviours, habits, self-imposed limitations and phobias.
Most people find hypnosis extremely pleasant, calming and relaxing, feelings which often continue well after the treatment has finished.
If you’re making decisions, considering making a big change, (i.e. divorce, moving, job change, further education) Life Coaching may be just what you need.
As you make a change, you may experience some of the fear or self-doubt that is often accompanied by it. Life Coaching is about people generating their own answers not looking outside for solutions. We’ll work together to examine your current situation, explore your current and future options, and get a clear idea of what you want, and how you can get it.
NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a highly effective system that seeks to change patterns of emotional and mental behaviour in order that you can achieve more success, and enjoy a happier personal life. Many hypnotherapists train in NLP in order to do two things. Firstly, to communicate successfully with their clients and secondly, to help their clients communicate more successfully with themselves.
One of its underlying assumptions is that without NLP people can change and that over time these changes can be profound. The technology of NLP means that the same changes can happen very quickly.
E.M.D.R. – Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing
We are all physiologically programmed for a state of good mental health.
We all use REM (Rapid Eye Movement) during sleep – it helps to process daily emotional experiences, and store them in a positive way for future reference and use, but when trauma or stress is experienced this process breaks down and REM sleep doesn’t bring the usual relief. When this system is unbalanced due to a trauma or stress, the negative thoughts and feelings of the traumatic event/stress are trapped in the nervous system. You can re-boot the system by using E.M.D.R., it processes and changes the information to a state of resolution that is appropriate.
The eye movements during E.M.D.R. do two very important things:- First, it ‘unlocks’ the negative memories and emotions stored in the nervous system, and secondly, it helps the brain to successfully process the experience until it is resolved so that the information can be used in a healthy, life-enhancing manner.
E.M.D.R. treatment facilitates a speedier progression toward health – positive emotions and higher self-regard, NOT toward dysfunction.
Using these therapies can help you to overcome your problems in a fast and effective way, leaving you free to be able to enjoy your life to the full.
