Hypnotherapy


The earliest reference to hypnosis dates back to Ancient Egypt and Greece. Indeed, 'hypnos' is the Greek word for sleep, although the actual state of hypnosis is very different from that of sleep. Hypnosis as we know today is an altered state of consciousness and heightened responsiveness to suggestion.

Hypnosis can produce a deeper contact with one's emotional life, resulting in some lifting of repressions and exposure of buried fears and conflicts.

Hypnotherapy is used to treat a variety of psychological and behavioural problems. It has been found helpful as adjunct therapy to many disorders such as obesity, alcoholism, cigarette addiction, hiccups, insomnia, certain phobias as well as psychosomatic diseases such as ulcers, colitis, migraine headaches, psychogenic warts, and reduction of itching in eczema and anxiety-caused skin disorders.

This mode of therapy has been applied with success in various aspects of obstetrics, gynaecology, pediatrics and dermatology. Psychological hypnotherapy (hypnoanalysis) has also been proved effective in many cases in which traditional methods of cure had not produced the expected results. Hypnosis has thus demonstrated significant medical and psychotheraputic applications. It has been an indicated procedure in the treatment of numerous disorders.

Are there some people who cannot be hypnotize?
No. (Except the mentally handicapped, although of course the degree of hypnotisability varies from person to person).

top  


Are drugs or tablets used?
No.

top  


Will I be aware of what is happening during therapy?
Yes. Most people are surprised to be able to remember all that has happened during therapy.

top  


As such, am I not asleep then?
No, you are simply extremely relaxed.

top  


Is there any cause at all for concern?
None whatsoever. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid.

top  


How many visits shall I need?
Simple problems, such as smoking, nail biting, slimming, pre-test nervousness etc usually require a single session and the success rate is surprisingly high. The more deep-rooted nervous disorders require 'analytical' than 'suggestion' therapy which usually consists of 8 or more weekly sessions.

top  


Could I be influenced to do anything against my will or nature?
No. In fact you would be immediately shocked out of the hypnotic state immediately, should any such suggestion was made to you.

top  


Could "normal" people be psycho-analysed?
Yes. For an insight to yourself, normal people should be. It has no equal.

top  


Could I bring someone with me for the consultation?
Yes you may.

top  


In the case of a medical problem could it help?
If you think your problem may be medical, it is essential that you consult your G.P. first.
