Personal Development Hypnotherapy with Chantal
 
Hypnotherapy is about working together so that you can be empowered to create change in your life.
 
 
What is Hypnotherapy?
 
Hypnotherapy is a combination of counselling skills and other therapeutic interventions with the use of hypnosis to treat medical and psychological problems.
 
                                                                       ALL HYPNOSIS IS SELF-HYPNOSIS
What is Hypnosis?
 
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring form of relaxation and inner concentration, and is also accompanied by a state of heightened awareness.  We all experience hypnosis as part of our every day lives, e.g. when doing things on autopilot like driving, being engrossed in a good book or a television programme.
 
Hypnosis is NOT sleep.  The body is deeply relaxed although not necessarily but mainly the mind is sharpened and more focused.  Hypnosis techniques are only a means to achieve this state.
 
In this state, we have direct access to our conscious mind where we store all our emotions, habits and behaviours, but also our resources.  We are able to gain insights and a new perspective on problems.  We are also better placed to tap into our inner resources to help resolve issues.
 
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis!  Your therapist is merely a facilitator.
There is NO magic wand, Hypnosis is not sleep, I can only help you if you are be willing to do the work!
 
 
What happens in a session?
 
The initial session covers full history taking with a confidential, detailed discussion outlining your difficulties and your goal for the therapy.
 
Subsequent sessions consist of a mix of counselling and hypnosis.  In order to help you, I will use a range of therapeutic techniques such as imagery, creative visualisation, parts therapy, regression, inner child work, suggestion techniques, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Eye Movement Therapies and Energy Psychology techniques such as EmoTrance and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), etc.


How many sessions do I need?

It really depends on what you wish to achieve.  I do not offer any quick fix nor can I waive a magic wand to change you into a Prince or a Princess!

Any difficulties you have in your life are likely to have been in your life for a number of years and to have become worse over time, I cannot simply erase them and I do not believe in covering up with positive suggestions, pretending that the problem is not there, as symptoms will inevitably resurface in no time.

Taking the time to uncover the roots of a problem will more likely result in long term transformation.  The good news is, transformation with hypnotherapy is much faster than counselling alone!

A course of 6 sessions minimum is always recommended.


How much does it cost?

A course of 6 sessions will cost you £85 per 1.5hr session.

A package of 6 sessions paid in full prior to your first session will cost you £450 (£75 per 1.5hr session).

Personal Development Hypnotherapy
I also offer long-term hypnotherapy for personal development with weekly or fortnightly sessions of 1 hour.  This option will cost you £50 per session.  Commitment is for 6 months minimum with a review after 3 months.  Initial assessment costs £50.

Other questions you may have about hypnosis:
 
Will I be able to be hypnotised?
Yes, anyone can be hypnotised as long as they want to.
 
Will I loose control?
No, nobody can be made to do anything they do not want to do.  An individual in hypnosis retains freedom of choice, free will and complete awareness of themselves and everything that is happening  around them at all times.
 
Can I get stuck in hypnotic trance?
No, anyone is free to come out of the hypnotic state at any time they choose.
 
How about stage hypnosis?
Stage hypnosis exists purely for entertainment value, it often appears to show that the hypnotised person has surrendered control to the hypnotist but this is not the case.  By being there the hypnotised person has volunteered and therefore agreed to the experience of stage hypnosis.
