Hypnosis is a peaceful, creative and productive state of inner absorption. It is a natural learning state and occurs from within and is a natural human ability and a powerful tool for change. Contrary to popular belief the client always maintains total control with the therapist merely acting as a guide to accessing the individual’s unconscious mind. Anyone can experience a trance state if they want to. This is when mental focus is more limited, more absorbed and often directed internally, it’s at this stage when the conscious mind is less dominant than the unconscious mind and is more available and open to positive suggestions.
Whether you want to release your nerves before an exam or interview, learn to control anxiety/stress and panic attacks. Hypnotherapy may also help with lifestyle changes such as weight control, self -image or self-worth, stopping unwanted habits such as smoking or nail-biting together with clearing fears and phobias.
Fertility by Hypnosis
Are you struggling with fertility problems? If you are considering IVF or are already in a cycle using hypnosis as an additional therapy may significantly increase your chances. 25% of infertility is still unexplained which means that stress could be a major factor in preventing conception.
When we are in a state of hypnosis by directing our attention towards increasing comfort, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, giving rise to the relaxation response. When we activate this relaxation response we enter a state of deep relaxation. This response works in opposition to the ‘fight or flight response’ and counteracts the body’s physical and emotional response to stress which allows it to return to a calm balanced state. While in this state there is a measurable decrease in heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, stress hormone levels and muscle tension giving you a wonderful feeling of relaxation.
During my sessions you will learn self-hypnosis and positive visualisations to help you find a relaxed state allowing you to release the stress around what you’re going through and create positive conditions for you to conceive naturally wherever you are on your fertile journey.
