Oxford Hypnotherapy Services
With training in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well, I am experienced in working with a wide variety of problems in a sensitive, non judgemental, safe and empathetic way. Learning about how your mind works and enjoying the relaxing and positive trance experience can not only help you overcome your problems but can also open the door to a happier future and with newly learned skills. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses clinically proven and up to date techniques that help free clients from issues that have held them back or made them miserable in a faster, effective and long lasting way. If you have been suffering from any form of anxiety, depression or anger and the wide range of resultant problems, you have made the first vital step towards helping yourself.
Modern solution focused Hypnotherapy avoids past reminiscing and ruminating and keeps clients focused on positive improvements. This can be very reassuring for clients who do not wish to go over past events.
Hypnotherapy is extremely useful and is recommended for moving a client forward often more swiftly and effectively than pure ‘talking’ therapy. It is helpful for changing unconscious habits and overcoming self destructive behaviour (as well as accessing past memories if one chooses). It does not rely on hours of analytical therapy in order to understand why one has a particular issue, although it can also be very illuminating and insightful. The aim is for positive effective change with achievable goals. Hypnotherapy is solution focused and yet it often involves that enlightening ‘light bulb’ moment. It is conducive to short term therapy but can be offered as a part of longer term treatment.
There is nothing strange or ‘other worldy’ about hypnotherapy and the client never looses control. It works by allowing communication between one’s subconscious and conscious mind and therefore accessing areas that one is often unaware of in our waking state. This not only reaches possible blockages or negative habitual patterns but also taps into wonderful abilities and strengths that lie dormant in one’s mind. It can be an exciting and profound way to understand and to accept oneself and encourages self development.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and it can be extremely relaxing. Trance is a natural process and an ability that we all possess, for example when we immerse ourselves in a good movie. I teach self hypnosis to practise at home and this improves the experience and process.
I send you an audio file for you to use at home on your phone, computer or iPad. If you do not have these I will give you a CD of my self hypnosis.
