How I work with adults
What is a hypnotherapy session like?
For adults, all sessions last for 90 minutes. At first I will talk to you about what you want out of the session and then show you how powerful your mind is and how hypnosis works.
In the second part of the session I will put you in the hypnotic state. This is nothing to worry about as you drift in and out of the hypnotic state throughout the day anyway. For example, when you drive a familiar route and reach your destination and then you wonder how you got there. You will feel really relaxed.
I will then regress you, as your subconscious mind knows the root of any issues. Regression means I will talk to your subconscious and take you back to the time in your past when this challenge started. This is like having a chat with your eyes shut and without feeling the need to censor what you say and how you feel. For those of you that meditate (which I thoroughly recommend) it is similar to a guided meditation. You will be fully aware of what is happening and you will be able to come out of the hypnotic state if you feel at all uncomfortable.
Then in the final part of the session I will talk to your subconscious mind and help you create and take on better beliefs and habits.
If all this sounds a bit too wacky please don’t be put off. Our brains are the best computers in the world yet most of us don’t use them to even a quarter of their full potential. Through hypnosis we are basically performing a software update. If you use smartphones, computers and tablets. you will know how regularly you update them, but when was the last time you updated your brain? If you don’t use any of this technology do please let me know.
You will then receive a bespoke recording, which is yours to keep. In order to get the full benefit of the session I recommend that you listen to your recording every night, for three weeks, ideally before going to sleep. This is because research shows this is how long it takes to create a new habit and thus strengthen and embed what happens in the session. Many of my clients continue to listen to their recordings long after the 3 weeks as they find it helps them relax and sleep well. You can also return to it if life gets hard again and you feel like you need a boost.
