What I tend to find, as a hypnotherapist, is that sleep problems go hand in hand with anxiety and depression. Often when the anxiety or low mood is dealt with the sleep problems automatically fade away! But what about when there are no obvious reasons for insomnia? This can sometimes be a more difficult problem to solve but learning relaxation does help as the lady  in this article found out.

It is nice to see a national newspaper printing something positive about hypnotherapy. Please read if this is an issue you have yourself and please call Rebecca on 07528637825 if you would like professional help with it.

This is a question that gets asked a lot! And I understand why, for no-one wants to waste their time or money but unfortunately this isn’t a question that can be answered with a simple yes or a no. Hypnotherapy may be quite a big investment for you in terms of time, money and effort so it’s natural to want guarantees that it will work.

Most people can be hypnotized although some can take longer than others to relax and use hypnosis effectively. There are a small group of people who may not respond to hypnosis due to their inability to perceive context and implication. Hypnosis is simply an engaging and deepening of the brain’s natural ability to focus and imagine. And in this relaxed ‘altered’ state of mind, the critical conscious mind can be bypassed to access your subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy can be very effective, if indeed life changing in certain cases. However, whether its counselling, coaching, psychotherapy or hypnotherapy, a therapist cannot guarantee a 100% success rate in every case, if they could, no-one would bother to learn, provide or use anything else.

I have a varied set of techniques that can be altered, personalised and adapted to each individual but there are no 2 clients the same. To be 100% sure of a technique being effective, each client would have to have the same type of anxiety or the same issues with weight loss etc. They would all have to have had the same experiences and upbringing, the same motivations in life. For this reason a technique used in hypnosis might work brilliantly for one person but not so well for another. For every different situation there will be a different solution and sometimes this can be found straight away and sometimes it’s not so easy. It has to be applied in a unique way for each individual.

Having said all this I can guarantee you that if you came to see me I would give you 100% of my time and commitment, you would be listened to attentively, treated with respect and only given the number of sessions you really need. Your privacy would be paramount and I would do everything I possibly could to help you achieve what you would like to achieve. In most cases if someone is determined to change and has the motivation and resolve to do so, then the process of hypnotherapy is generally successful!
