What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy has been around since the 1800’s having been used as an anaesthetic, for entertainment & for self-development amongst other uses. You’ll still see it being used for entertainment; Paul McKenna & Derren Brown for instance, but stage hypnotism as it is known is much different to hypnotherapy.
Hypnosis is named after the Greek god of sleep and the word has been combined with therapy to create a tool for therapeutic use.
There are so many uses for hypnosis as a therapeutic tool, and it is a great boost for your own willpower when it comes to quitting smoking or losing weight. Many of my clients come to me because they are unhappy with an aspect of themselves or their behaviour, there is very little that hypnosis cannot help with, here are a few of the issues I use hypnotherapy for, it is not fully comprehensive so if you are not sure, give me a call so we can discuss it:
- Quitting Smoking
- Gastric Band Therapy
- Fears or Phobias; Spiders, flying, heights, claustrophobia/agoraphobia/hospitals & dentists etc
- Confidence Building
- Public Speaking
- Improved Sports Performance
Past Life Regression
Past Life Regression – PLR for short – is a specific use of hypnosis to unlock the part of the mind that holds the information of our past lives. Once in the meditative, hypnotic state I will guide you to your past lives so that you can access the lessons and information these lives have given your soul.
What To Expect from A Hypnotherapy Session?
Simply put, you will be taken to a relaxed state much like meditation, in this state. Most people are aware of the whole process, a small minority, don’t remember a thing from a session, it is as though they have been to sleep, but don’t worry, if this is you, the hypnotherapy will still work.
During hypnosis your other senses such as your hearing may accentuate, taking over from the fact you are not sensing anything visually, this will wear off quickly.
You will feel very relaxed, in fact most people do not want to end the hypnotic state as it is so nice.
I’m not going to leave you barking like a dog whenever the doorbell goes, that is stage hypnotism not hypnotherapy.
Different people have different needs as well as different results from their sessions but generally you will see an improvement if not total change with the issue you are seeking help with, whether it be helping you to quit smoking, lose weight, be more confident in public speaking or your sports performance etc.
During hypnosis you are aware of your environment at all times so you are never out of control, just relaxed & passive.
What To Expect from Past Life Regression
Each person has a unique experience, so I cannot tell you what you will experience, only what previous people have experienced. As a minimum we usually get to explore one life, this may be because it is so interesting you want to spend all the session in that life, or it may be that the life we are looking at holds the key to issues in this life such as an overwhelming sadness with no root or a challenging relationship with a loved one.
Many of my clients have experienced as many as 6 past lives, this is dependent on how responsive you are within the session, some people are really animated, others tend to be slower and so it takes longer to recount the life.
As an intuitive and as someone trained to access the Akashic Records – this is the spiritual dimension that contains all the information on the lives your soul has had so far – I am often given information that fits in with the information you are given to help give you a fuller memory.
After your regression I will help you to understand what has happened to your soul, the soul contracts, vows and reasons you have had those experiences as well as explaining how the spiritual aspect of you functions.
I don’t record the sessions; however, you will remember the session so you will have that information to help you with your life now.
I qualified as a hypnotherapist back in 2005 after seeing Paul McKenna helping people using hypnosis. I also trained in NLP (neuro linguistic programming) with the creator Richard Bandler & Paul McKenna shortly after that. I'm also fascinated by past lives & past life regression so that was another driver in me qualifying as a hypnotherapist.
I am also a qualified Life Coach & intuitive, I am able to blend all of these together so that you get as much help to become the person you wish to be, it also means I can be as effective as possible in helping clients.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
As mentioned before, each client is different, you may find that one session is plenty or you may find you need a few, there is no wrong or right. For past life regression one session is generally sufficient, unless you love it so much, you want to explore more lives in another session.
If you are looking to change a habit such as losing weight or to enable you to stop smoking or if you have an area of your life where you need to make changes, I'd recommend you look at my coaching packages.
