I provide Hypnotherapy in Sheffield for a wide range of applications via face to face and online treatment sessions.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all experience at various times and in various depths throughout the day. The experience of hypnosis has been described in many ways and is often explained as a feeling similar to daydreaming, when you are neither fully alert, nor asleep.
Unlike counselling, psychotherapy or psychology, which may involve looking at a number of issues in a conscious way. Hypnotherapy is the combination of hypnosis and talking therapy to bring about changes to thoughts, feelings and behaviours at a deeper than conscious level (the subconscious level). This is part of us which is by far more powerful than the conscious mind (over 90% of our neurological brain work), where we automatically respond.
These are the beliefs we all hold about ourselves (positive or negative), where many of our behaviours, patterns and habits reside. During hypnosis, insights can be gained through a new perspective and adjustments can be made to limiting beliefs that have influenced or directed life.
All therapeutic techniques applied are safe and you are always in control and aware of what is happening, enabling you to react and always respond. Client’s generally feel refreshed, positive, and relaxed when they leave, leading them to think clearer and make rational choices that can be of great benefit to their future.
