Hypnosis is a state of relaxed awareness, being physically relaxed but mentally alert and in full control throughout. In this state, the subconscious mind is most receptive to hypnotic suggestion. The relaxed state is similar to being completely absorbed in a movie, music, book, or absorbed in own thoughts or meditations. In this state, natural internal resources can be used to help make changes or regain control.
The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy. As such, hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome.
Counselling & Psychotherapy
Feeling stuck in life can be distressing and overwhelming. Sometimes we can feel helpless, not knowing how to move forward. This is where counselling or psychotherapy can help. Counselling can help you to explore your feelings and look at the reasons why you are feeling this way. Counselling aims to help you find your own solutions, without making moral judgements or pushing you in a particular direction.
Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a unique, nontraditional form of psychotherapy designed to diminish negative feelings associated with memories of traumatic events and to help people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). People who have PTSD may experience intrusive thoughts, memories, nightmares or flashbacks of traumatic events in their past.
