Hypnotherapy

What Is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is carried out in a clinical setting, in which hypnosis is used as a therapy or treatment for a wide variety of psychological and somatic problems. It is one of the oldest healing techniques. In recent years, its popularity has risen dramatically, because it is often successful where other treatments have failed. Hypnotherapy is natural and safe, has no harmful side effects, and most people readily respond to it.

How Can It Help Me?

We all have responsibility for our behaviour, but there are many times when we don't feel in control, when we feel that a particular behaviour is driving us, or that we have no control over it. This can include undesirable habits such as smoking or nail biting; not being in control of our weight; and various anxiety problems including phobias, panic attacks, anxiety over work, and social, study, or sporting performance stress. It can also include a range of apparent physical disorders, such as IBS; skin disorders; and dealing with pain or serious illness.

So, Gill not only helps people with the usual stopping smoking and weight control, but with specific anxiety problems, such as phobias, and general anxiety problems, such as panic attacks. Hypnotherapy empowers your unconscious to regain the control you have lost, and put you back in charge of your life.

What Happens?

In hypnotherapy, your body is completely relaxed, but your mind is alert. You do not go to sleep. You are in complete control all the time and will hear everything the therapist says to you. You and the therapist are working together to help you change the behaviour you want to change.

Gill’s practice in Maidenhead, Berkshire, offers hypnotherapy for clients mainly in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and the general West London area, although clients also travel from much further afield.
