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!
