Hypnotherapy in Surrey

Grieving a lost family member, friend or pet is an extremely personal journey.   After the initial shock (of sudden or unexpected loss) we can experience an overwhelming sadness. Then maybe denial, anger, or abandonment, then we generally travel down depression and acknowledgment that ‘it’ actually happened and they aren’t walking back through the door. This can take months or years. Some struggle to move past a certain point, others ‘go off the rails’ for a period of time; or simply shrink in on themselves, and metaphorically roll up into a ball and stay there to wait for it to pass. Losing a loved one is one of the most traumatic incidents of life. Inevitable, but we can never be truly prepared enough for it. To lose a pet is just as heart breaking - let’s be honest - who of us doesn’t humanise our pets? For some people; elderly, single, or already bereaved, our beloved pets are all we have. This makes the journey no less painful. Sometimes you may feel embarrassed to be ‘stuck’ in your grief. If we try to keep these huge feelings of loss inside, if we choose not to share or downplay our sadness, we suppress what can only lead to more sadness and, ultimately, additional depression/anxiety/insomnia.  Things we do to numb our feelings, self medication can include but is not restricted to: Comfort eating, Heavy drinking, Medication (prescription or over the counter), Taking risks with personal safety, Self harm **(If this should be a trigger for you, it is strongly advised you seek medical support as soon as possible) Hypnodynamic Therapies can really help support you through your myriad of grief and feelings.  We can navigate your journey together. Please get in touch.  Please note: Hypnosis is subjective, and every person has their own experience. Some clients need more sessions than others, the average length of therapy is 2-8 sessions.
The word hypnosis derives from the Greek word for “sleep”. In clinical hypnosis, the patient is in an altered state of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness. When we use certain stimuli, mental processes are activated, and I can then treat various psychological disorders.

I will bring you, the patient, into a hypnotic or trance-like state. Using various words and associations of ideas that will change your thought patterns or behaviors. Your open mind and positive attitude will play a key role in the success of your therapy - you must have the desire to participate and be fully guided during the sessions.

Having described the process of hypnosis and reviewing your treatment goals. I will typically talk in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security, and well-being.

When you are in a receptive state, I will suggest ways for you to achieve your goals, helping you visualize vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals.

When the session is over, I will help you end your state of relaxation.
Talking Therapy
This is a technique aimed at supporting you to enable changes in your deep set beliefs and experiences, some of these have been held for a long while. By re-shaping your mindset, the knock on effect of these positive shifts in change, will help your perception of the original problem, and also help in other areas of your life

How long will a session last?

Your first session would be around 90 minutes long to really spend time discussing your needs and expectations. Moving forwards each session will then be between 50-60 minutes long thereafter.

How many sessions so I need?

This varies from person to person and also depending on how deep rooted a belief or addiction is. Sometimes we can resolve things in one or two sessions, other issues or circumstances may take several, but as a general rule most people benefit from 4-8 sessions.

Will I lose control under hynosis?

No. it is not possible to ‘make’ or enforce any behaviour or belief system that you do not already hold. For example, you could not be hypnotised to rob a bank or bark like a dog, as these are not in your general personality to do so. You, ultimately remain in complete control of yourself at all times.

Does hypnotherapy work for everyone?

No. it has an average 88% success rate. Hypnosis is not a ‘silver bullet’ to cure everything for everyone, but it can have amazing results that have great staying power. Some people need ‘top ups’ over periods of months or years, and others just need a couple of sessions once only. I am fully invested in you to help support you through whatever your predicament is; all I ask is you be fully on board in return.

Can you guarantee results?

I can guarentee to give you the best of my services at all times. Ensuring you have the best possible positive experience I can offer. As mentioned above; it is not a magic wand, but between us we will work very hard to resolve your issues.

Can sessions be conducted online?

Yes we can if that suits better. However, a face to face session will always be my preferred medium; there are no reasons why online therapy will have a detrimental affect. Infact, for some, online may be their only option to work with me, whether that’s because of COVID, distance or any other reason.
