  • Why it feels like smoking helps us relax
    Smoking cigarettes interferes with certain chemicals in the brain. When smokers haven't had a cigarette for a while, the craving for another one makes them feel irritable and anxious. These feelings can be temporarily relieved when they light up a cigarette. So smokers associate the improved mood with smoking. In fact, it's the effects of smoking itself that's likely to have caused the anxiety in the first place. Cutting out smoking does improve mood and reduces anxiety. Also know as the nicotine trick!

  • What happens in hypnosis?
    Firstly, disregard anything you think you know about hypnotherapy and hypnosis based on stage shows. Hypnotherapy is a scientific method that has been used for over 5000 years and uses evidence based methodologies to help clients work through their issues and struggles. Research suggests there are several stages of hypnosis. The initial relaxation element of hypnotherapy starts by dampening down the activity of the frontal cortex. Limiting the effectiveness of this area of the brain, central to attention, planning, and making decisions, increases activity in other areas engaged in filtering and integrating information. We become more open to information, more suggestible to positive suggestions, and capable of creating more intense sensations in our minds (Thomson, 2019). A fascinating study in 2006 found that the brains of hypnotized individuals who were asked to imagine pleasant memories responded as if the experiences were real. The parts of the brain involved in movement and sensation became more active (Faymonville, Boly, & Laureys, 2006).
  • What exactly is Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy?
    Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy aims to provide you with the tools to develop more positive thoughts and positive coping skills while simply in a more relaxed and focused headspace. As a Clinical Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist I work with you to break down your overwhelming problems into smaller more manageable problems that we can work through together. I provide you with the tools and techniques to develop healthy coping mechanisms and begin to live a happy life again.
  • Is Hypnosis Safe
    Yes. You are completely in control at all times. Hypnotherapy is a form of talking therapy that uses hypnosis to really get to the root cause of your issues while giving you tools and techniques to move forward in your life. Providing you with the coping skills that you need in daily life or with a particular issue.
  • Is there evidence that hypnosis works?
    Yes, While there are lots of of examples in the scientific literature showing the effectiveness and of clinical hypnosis, a study published in the journal Gut is noteworthy. The study involved 204 people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Treatment consisted of 12 weekly sessions of hypnosis (lasting about one hour each). Fifty-eight percent of the men and 75 percent of the women reported significant symptom relief immediately aftertreatment and more than 80% of those remained that way up to six years later. Less than 10 percent of the participants tried other treatments after hypnotherapy. (Gut, November 2003).

  • Am I asleep in hypnosis and can I get stuck in hypnosis?
