Hypnotherapy Explained

Hypnosis is a very gentle and peaceful state to be in. Within this place our day to day worries seem to evaporate. Whilst in hypnosis a hypnotherapist can help you with positive suggestions for your well being or can use psychotherapy to help you.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is state of deep relaxation and is often described as a state of heightened focus. Neuroscience research has shown that the state of Hypnosis is processed in a different part of the brain to straight forward suggestions or the placebo effect.

Who can be hypnotised?

Everyone I have ever had as a patient can be hypnotised. The hypnotic feeling is an individual experience. We all experience hypnosis in our own way. It is a pleasant state to be in and a natural state to be in. Many of my clients are a little nervous of trying hypnotherapy. There really is no need to be apprehensive. You will be in control at all times. I just help you achieve the hypnotic state.

Types of Therapy

There are really only two types of Hypnotherapy: Suggestion Hypnotherapy which is often called Cognitive Hypnotherapy, and Psychotherapy under Hypnosis. My rapid form of Psychotherapy under Hypnosis is called Memory Reconsolidation.

Suggestion Hypnotherapy

Whilst the patient is under hypnosis the hypnotherapist will give positive suggestions to the patient. These are carefully worded so that the subconscious will accept them as safe and good alternatives to any previously learned behaviour or habits. This therapy is excellent for motivation, public speaking, stopping smoking, weight loss and sport.

Rapid Psychotherapy – Memory Reconsolidation

This therapy gets to the heart of the problem. It is an evidence based rapid form of psychotherapy. Subconscious learned behaviour can cause feelings that are no longer relevant to our present lives. Neuroscience has shown that it is possible to change these subconscious learned behaviours by finding the appropriate memories and contradicting them with the present day reality. This type of therapy is ideal for anxiety, depression, addictions, emotional issues, emotional eating and much more.

Here are some quotes from my clients:

Peter – Smoking “I never thought that I would give up smoking so easily. I just don’t want to smoke anymore and I have lost weight.”

Oliver – Nail Biting “Since our session and into the new year, it was a great success! For the first few hours I noticed myself going for my fingers, but then something just stopped this activity. This led to a complete regrowth of my cuticles and I could not remember a time they looked better. Remarkable, really, considering I had put up with the habit for around 20 years.”

Sue – Weight Loss “Weight has been falling off me and I have dropped two dress sizes all ready. For the first time in years my Doctor did not ask me to stand the scales.”

Jake – Gambling Addiction & Anxiety “I couldn’t thank Luke enough for the therapy he has done with me as I had a gambling problem and I have now been clean from it for months”

“The therapy Luke has done with me has cleared a lot of my anxiety and I feel like a totally different person, I have achieved so much since seeing him and overcome a lot of problems.”

Jane – Anxiety “I am finally feeling happy. The sessions with you were so good and now I feel I can really enjoy being with my children.”

Megan – Public Speaking Anxiety “I survived and passed the public speaking element of the course so all is good! I was much more relaxed than the week before. Thank you for the session – I really appreciate your time and help.”
