What can I expect from a hypnotherapy session?
If it’s your first session, your hypnotherapist will explain how hypnosis works, and alleviate any anxieties you may have about the process. Once you have had all your questions answered, you will then be invited to make yourself comfortable, either by sitting or lying on a couch.
The next step is the induction, which is the process of guiding you from normal waking consciousness into the hypnotic state. When you are deeply relaxed, the hypnotherapist may make suggestions, guide you through a visualisation exercise or help to reinforce thoughts of conception to make a positive impact on your subconscious mind. When you are under hypnosis, you are completely in control and aware of your surroundings. After your session, you will feel relaxed, balanced and able to carry on with your day, feeling more confident about your treatment with a newfound positive mindset.
Your hypnotherapist will be fully trained as a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, so you can be sure that you are in safe, competent hands, no matter the problems you want to overcome.
