I studied for my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy over a 12 month period under the amazing Alan Burnett in Swansea. During the course, and since then having seen hundreds of hypnotherapy clients, I can attest to the results it can produce. I have worked with people who have made sometimes subtle, sometimes not so subtle changes after a course of hypnotherapy.
This, I believe, is down to the power of the subconscious mind.
A session of hypnotherapy should be a calming, relaxing, enjoyable experience where your conscious mind drifts away, and your subconscious becomes open and more receptive.
You never relinquish control to the hypnotherapist. This is not stage hypnotism, this is a genuine therapy to help you live a better life. So, you'll always be aware of what's going on. Yes, you might drift off for a while and miss something the hypnotherapist says, but that's ok, your subconscious is always aware.
Here are some comments from my hypnotherapy clients:
"Absolutely amazing - I felt relaxed, calm, peaceful, tranquil, and refreshed' - Amy
'You made me feel instantly comfortable - I could be very open with you' - Simon
'Thank you for the relaxing hypnotherapy and warm welcome - it was a totally enjoyable experience' - Bethan
And here's a quote from 'Hypnotherapy for a Better Life':
'Clinical hypnotherapy is a scientific, evidence-based psychological therapy which is highly effective in the treatment of a range of psychological and physical issues and symptoms.
Clinical hypnosis has been used within the medical field for many years and its use has been approved by the British Medical Association (BMA), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
It is commonly used in the UK National Health Service (NHS) with over 12 per cent of NHS Trusts accessing hypnotherapy services.' Tig Calvert, Hypnotherapy for a Better Life, p. 175. Published by Hodder Education in 2012.
Due to the COVID situation I'm not currently seeing hypnotherapy clients - but have partnered with the brilliant resource that is Uncommon Knowledge. Over on their site you'll find hundreds (over 1,200 in fact) of audio mp3 downloads to help you with whatever you're struggling with. Why not give them a try?
