Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy

Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that complements, and is integrated into psychotherapy sessions. Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy does not cure anything, it is not a magic bullet, and yet Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy has strong scientific support for being an extremely effective and gentle healing tool that allows clients to access a peaceful state of internal focused concentration. This allows for creative insight and higher awareness that enables the mind to tell the body how to react, and modifies the messages that the body sends to the mind.

It is unfortunate that so many have distorted views of hypnosis. Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy is not what has been popularized by Hollywood. It is not possible for someone to be placed under mind-control, and become controlled by a hypnotist. Anything you’ve seen or heard regarding stage hypnosis is nothing at all like what you’ll experience in a Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy session.

In the therapeutic relationship, unlike in the entertainment industry, during a session of Clinical Counselling Hypnosis with a qualified practitioner, the client is in COMPLETE CONTROL of the process.

Clinical Counselling Hypnosis assumes that the client already has healing abilities, internal resources, and personal wisdom. It is the task of the Hypnotherapist to draw them forth, and help the client use them to resolve issues and move into a life of calm, confidence. Experiencing Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy can help replace fear of the unknown with curiosity.

Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy has proven itself to be one of the most relaxing, direct, and effective ways of achieving lasting changes to beliefs, behaviours and emotional habits that do not serve you well. Once understood, processed, and relinquished these inhibiting, and intrusive ways of being can be replaced with new, beneficial thoughts, feelings and actions. You can relax, feel in control, and process your experience of change at your own pace. Every Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy session allows you to address your specific concerns, facilitating healing in the moment. You will also be taught how to utilize self-hypnosis to access, and transform unconscious forces so that the healing process we begin in session may continue in the days and weeks that follow.

Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy in conjunction with integrative psychotherapy is able to assist clients in the following areas:

• Anxiety, Fears, Phobias
• Core Belief Transformation
• Decision Making, Procrastination
• Depression
• Forgiveness Work
• Habit Control

I look forward to connecting with you.
