Hypnosis itself is simply a state of focused attention. In this relaxed state, your mind is more responsive to suggestion.
You are deeply relaxed and calm, aware of everything happening around you. It is a pleasant and enjoyable state, very similar to daydreaming or drifting off to sleep.
No, you will be in control at all times.
We all have a protective mechanism of ethics, values, beliefs and identities, which protect us as individuals and ensures that we do not do anything against our will.
Whilst we recognise that friends can be good to talk to but they are not trained to deal impartially with such problems.
Any hurt or upset or problem you have may also affect your friend, who being close to you, would not have the detachment necessary to help you to deal with the emotional content of the problem professionally. In addition, we work at your deeper psychological levels in order to deal with the problem at deeper levels.
No, definitely not!
You will always be treated with the utmost respect, and your confidentiality will be safeguarded. Entertainment hypnosis relies on compliance, expectation from the audience and perception of what the audience expects.
In fact, if you should choose to go to an entertainment hypnotist, you are going with the express intention of having fun and being asked to do silly things.
Yes, children can be treated using hypnotherapy from the age of about six, provided they have a good attention span.
I was really concerned when my stress started to impact on my ability to cope in my job as a Nurse.
Having hypnotherapy really helped more than I could ever have imagined. I was most definitely ready to take on this therapy and be open to it which I think is really important. Wendys explanation of why we feel like we do, how our brain copes with stress etc, made it all the clearer and allowed me to finally deal with some of the issues that have clouded me for as long as I can remember. I’m still me, I’ve not suddenly changed as a person, I just have a sense of calm and happiness that has been absent for years. Visualising my primitive brain as the naughty monkey (!) helped as I could regain some control that way.
The relaxation cd was (and still is) an integral part of the process and has an amazing, calming effect on me. The process is very subtle, but it works. I realise I have never really ‘managed’ my stress and got fed up being told ‘but you have so much going on….’
I needed to regain control of my life and that’s exactly what I feel I have achieved with Wendy’s help.Allieclient
I decided to engage in hypnotherapy with Wendy to help reduce my stress and anxiety from the day to day demands of life.
After only several sessions I began to recognise the change in my pattern of behaviour enabling me to feel more in control resulting in more positive thoughts. Learning how our minds work through hypnotherapy opens up a new path of understanding ourselves.
It’s amazing how learning new techniques to manage our negative thoughts allows us the space and capacity to hold the positives ones!
I’m so confident about this treatment that my 10 year old daughter is now having hypnotherapy to help her manage with the impact of bereavement.Lisaclient
