HYPNOTHERAPY and STRESS CENTRE

 

Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When under hypnosis you will feel very relaxed, just like that wonderful feeling when you are tired lying in your bed and you are so overcome with comfort that you wish the moment could last forever. Through simple hypnotic, relaxation techniques you can easily attain this state at which time it becomes easy, with the help of our fully trained hypnotherapist, to visualise yourself becoming healthier, happier, more confident, a non-smoker. Whatever it is that you want to be!

Hypnotherapy, or self-hypnosis once you've learnt to use the tools for yourself, can be a very effective tool for asking the right kind of internal questions. For instance, have a think about the following:

1. What do you want your life to be like in a year's time? Make your answer as compelling as possible - what do you really want it to be like?

2. What changes will you need to make for this to happen? Don't just think logically. What changes will you have to make in the WAY that you think?

3. Could anything negative happen if you do make these changes? In other words, how much do you really want it?

Many people claim that they have never been hypnotised, but they do admit to having drifted off whilst thinking about a loved one, forgetting large chunks of a car journey (commonly known as highway hypnosis), or ' going somewhere else' while reading a book. These are all examples of natural trance states. One of the great things about hypnosis is that in the hands of a reputable practitioner it is harmless and produces no damaging side effects, whilst providing positive therapeutic benefits.

What Does Hypnotherapy Involve?

Hypnotherapy is a two way process between the therapist and the client, a professional partnership. A person cannot be hypnotised unless he or she agrees and co-operates - this cannot be stressed enough. Also whilst hypnotised, nobody can make you do anything which you do not want to do. Even those people on television eating raw onions and pretending to be Madonna are doing it because they want to! They have chosen to participate. It must be emphasised here that what hypnotherapists do is, by definition, therapeutic. Stage hypnosis is very different. It is a form of entertainment.

A Hypnotherapist's Job is to Help People

The first stage of a hypnotherapy consultation will generally involve an informal chat and some questions from the therapist to ascertain the nature of the issue and the necessary route to overcoming or dealing with it. The next stage is hypnosis. The following notes are taken from an information sheet published by the National Council for Hypnotherapy .

You are led, by means of the hypnotherapist's gently guiding voice, into a state where your body and mind are relaxed and nearly asleep. To an onlooker it might seem as if you were totally asleep but in fact, though you will normally feel very relaxed, you will remain awake enough to be aware. Also awake will be those parts of your mind which the therapist is working with to induce beneficial changes. This may mean that you will be picturing, as in a daydream, the things which are being spoken of and that you may experience the associated pleasant feelings.

REMEMBER that if at any time you feel uncomfortable and want to terminate the session, then you will be perfectly capable of doing so. After this there is always time left at the end of the session for you to ask questions or to discuss any experiences you had whilst you were in the relaxed, hypnotic state.

Hopefully one day we will do away with the strange and mystical stereotype of the hypnotherapist once and for all. The magic is all in the mind of the person receiving hypnotherapy.

The hypnotist merely helps you to use that incredible hidden power to achieve things in your life such as stopping smoking, losing weight, cutting down on stress, gaining in confidence and happiness, even excelling at your chosen sport.

 What is NLP


NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) was first developed in the United States in the early 70's from studying the thinking and behavioural skills used by particularly effective and successful people.

It is now used internationally by millions of people throughout the world in such diverse fields as management, sales, marketing, public relations, education, therapy, the military and police, sport, and personal development. It is probably the fastest growing area of personal change.

So how does it work?

NLP is based on the idea that you experience the world you live in through your five senses, what you experience goes to your brain via; Your visual sense - Seeing, /Your auditory sense - Hearing /Your kinaesthetic sense – Feeling, / Your olfactory sense – Smell / Your gustatory sense – Taste.

You use your senses to translate and store Information into thoughts (Both conscious and unconscious) Your thought process activates your nervous system, this then effects how you behave, what your emotions are and how you use your physiology. NLP is about having an understanding of ‘how’ and ‘why’ you translate your sensory experiences.

NLP is all about what makes you tick as a human being. NLP is like having an owner’s manual for your brain NLP can provide the tools to help you make incredible changes in your life.

Neuro - refers to your nervous system.

Linguistic - refers to how you use language to communicate and make sense of the world. The words you use can influence your world. Your thoughts, words and actions, both verbal and non-verbal are the way in which you communicate and express yourself both internally (thoughts) and externally (to others)

 - The way in which you store information effects how you behave and respond. NLP looks at ‘how’ and ‘why’ you store information and then shows you how to change and evaluate this information and produce more desirable results in you life.
