What is Hypnotherapy?

GHRHypnosis for Health

I am counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist based in Leicestershire. I have been qualified for around 10 years having previously worked in Human Resources for a large International company. A strong interest in health, well being and welfare led me to continue my studies, progressing from HR into counselling then hypnotherapy enabling me to offer support and guidance to those in need and help them move on in their life.

Having experienced the positive effects of this type of therapy myself and seeing the results and delighted faces and change in the people I see, I am my own testament to the true power of counselling and hypnosis as a complimentary effective medical intervention. As a result and with my years of experience I am able to understand and empathise with my clients on a deep level which can facilitate great change.

Hypnotherapy can be instant, requiring nothing of you but a willingness to change. By working together, it is your subconscious mind that can bring about instant and lasting behavioural change, without the need for extensive therapy sessions.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis can best be described as when a persons mind enters an altered state of consciousness, like day dreaming. You are not in a deep sleep and not aware of what’s going on around you, you are awake the whole time, but in a deep trance like state. When in this trance state, the subconscious mind becomes extremely active and is more alert and imaginative than during a normal awake state. It’s at this point your subconscious mind takes over from your conscious and facilitate great change.

You have complete control throughout the session and you are awake, you could choose to end the therapy at any point if you wished. As your therapist I will guide you safely using professional techniques to achieve the results that we have previously agreed upon during consultation.

Your subconscious mind listens to my voice in a subliminal way and when I talk directly to your subconscious mind in this deeply relaxed state, this is then where we make the positive suggestions that automatically sit comfortably in your mind. When you come back into full conscious awareness these thoughts are enacted immediately.

All you need to do is truly want to change and be committed to it. Then you can sit back and relax in safety and comfort and let me do the rest. Often people have secondary conditions bought on by the presenting issue and we can review these independently, but an immediate and lasting change can be made that easily.

Contact me now and say goodbye to worry, dieting, cravings, stress, anxiety and any old behaviours or habits that don’t work for you any more – know that you can look, feel and be different!

What to expect on your first therapy session

hope-child-teen-family-counseling-houston

Counselling and Hypnotherapy Leicester

Many people take some time before they will consider contacting someone to get help in their private life.¬†You could feel¬†intimidated¬†by the prospect of opening up to someone¬†and admitting to oneself that there is a problem isn’t easy either.

The first step to overcome this is having the insight that there is an issue and it CAN be dealt with, there can be some comfort in this step alone. How bad do things have to get before you can feel better?

Some people visit at crisis point, eg stress or phobia related whilst others have a gentle meander and come along when they know they are absolutely ready to tackle the issue once and for all e.g. to stop smoking.

The overall important factor is the best outcome can only be achieved when you are 100% ready to make the necessary changes in your life. Counselling will help with emotional issues, release concerns and combined with hypnosis can help you to move on in your life, happily, healthily, successfully.

The first session usually comprises of a 60-90 minutes consultation 60-90 where you can tell me about what’s¬†happening in your life and where you want to go with it.¬†¬†Depending on¬†how you feel¬†a hypnotherapy session is also offered to provide experience of the process and also some comfort as needed.

From this initial session I can then customize your therapy according to your specific needs, and you will have my full support outside of the sessions to keep me updated on how you are doing. You no longer have to fear being alone or having no one to turn to.

So if you feel the need to speak to some one independently and privately and you think counselling and hypnotherapy may help then please feel free to get in touch and I’ll be happy to help put your mind at ease.

Virtual Gastric Hypno-Band Leicester

As seen on C4 TV Embarrassing Bodies

Licensed Hypno-Band Practice Leicester

Have you been watching the new series of Fat Embarrassing Bodies on C4? What do you think about the brave participants of the show? I know¬†it can be seen as voyeuristic but it does give lots and lots of hard facts about the dangers of being overweight, that you simply can’t ignore.

The virtual gastric Hypno-Band has been successfully featured on Embarrassing Bodies as well as GMTV and countless newspaper and magazine articles as a very successful, risk free way of losing weight with the surgery Рand eye watering costs.

Qualified Counsellors and Hypnotherapy in Leicester

bacp.co.ukHypnosis Health Leicester

Most of my clients come to me through referrals from their friends or family. But what do you do if you are looking for a new therapist without a referral?

You might Google ‘Hypnotherapy Leicester’ and over 250,000 results appear, some are paid adverts usually on the front page or featured along the side. How do you work out which one is best for you?

The Counselling and Hypnotherapy Profession like other organisations is heavily regulated to ensure your practitioner is suitably qualified, insured and fit for practice. The practitioner should also attend regular, confidential supervision to check they are giving you a high standard of therapy and keep up to date with new polices and procedures.

The Government use and recognise The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am a member.

CNHC

I am a member of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, which was established with Government support to regulate complementary therapies.

GHRI also belong to the General Hypnotherapy Register, which is the largest professional register for hypnotherapists in the UK.

Anyone who has a business profile should have sufficient¬†evidence of their practice, especially across the social networks. Do they have a clear and concise website, are they on Twitter or Facebook, do they have a blog? You often get a good ‘feel’ about a website or person by reading through their literature, this is important as you will be giving them your personal information so you need to make sure you feel comfortable with them.

When you have chosen a few you like the look of, give them a call. Again you will get a better feel for that person by listening to their voice or see what response you get to an email.

Most therapists like myself will be more than happy to have a no obligation informal chat with you, I also want to ensure I will be suitable to assist you to the best of my ability so its important I get to know you too.

In any therapy, you must NEVER be made to feel uncomfortable in any way. My role in your therapy is a facilitator¬†in your well being, guiding you through the process. Never feel pressurised to make an appointment if you don’t feel its right for you.

Hope this helps in someway when trying to find a new therapist. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me leicstherapy@gmail.com I personally handle all correspondence.

By supporting Feel Good Friday, you’ll help Samaritans continue to provide their life-saving service for the millions of cries for help they receive each year.

  • ¬£3.88 pays for one call to be answered by a volunteer;
  • ¬£100 allows the charity to recruit 5 new volunteers;
  • ¬£1,000 keeps Samaritans’ service running for 12 hours
