What is Hypnotherapy?
Under hypnosis, you will experience a state of relaxation and increased awareness induced by suggestion. We naturally experience this state every day, usually without being aware. For instance, when you arrive at a destination but can’t recall parts of the journey or are so focused on a film that you don’t hear someone speaking to you. A person puts themselves into hypnosis and is only guided by the therapist.
Hypnotherapy uses this state of hypnosis together with suggestions (agreed between the client and therapist beforehand) to bring about desired changes.
How many sessions will I need?
This will depend very much on you and the issue you bring. It might be anything from 2 or 3 sessions to give up smoking, 2 to 4 sessions for weight control and possibly more sessions for more long term issues.
I’d been trying to manage my chronic headache for the past 4 years and had tried pretty much everything to make my day to day routine more comfortable. After a session with Andrew, I felt much more in control and able to keep the pain in perspective. He worked very gently and sensitively with me to firstly ascertain what I was hoping to get out of the session and then, based on my specific responses, Andrew took me through a very positive session. This included visualising my pain, taking control of it and also incorporating relaxation techniques.
Andrew has a very calming manner, and quickly helped me to put aside my initial scepticism about how a hypnosis session might pan out in reality. I always felt reassured and came out of the session feeling as if I was being handed the control and the confidence to manage my pain on a daily basis.
I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew.
Having had an intense fear of spiders since childhood, I felt it was time to act! The mind is an incredibly powerful thing and Andrew’s skills and expertise helped me to use my own thoughts and rationale to overcome my spider phobia. Tarantulas will never be my pet of choice but I can now deal with visiting house spiders humanely rather than resorting to hoovering them up or thumping them with the nearest heavy implement.
Andrew gave me the tools to be able to have a smoke free future.
Genuinely nice guy and would highly recommend him.
