Hypnotherapy in Bristol

Improve your Life with Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a means of accessing the abilities and resources of the whole mind to shift behaviours and update mental and emotional patterns. You’ll gain insights, release conditioning, outdated habits and change negative or limiting thoughts.This is achieved through skillful use of language, hypnotic techniques, visualisation and positive suggestion. Naturally occurring trance states and deep relaxation may be involved too.

You’ll gain access to levels of mind that are not the “conscious mind”, often called the subconscious or unconscious mind. Accessing these levels of mind enables you to use resources that are not usually available to change negative feelings, ideas & perceptions; to understand and realise wider perspectives, and abilities. You find yourself learning quickly and enjoyably making shifts that were previously out of your grasp.

Contrary to popular opinion, most people in hypnotic or meditative states do continue to hear what the therapist is saying, and will be enjoying positive suggestions, images and positive feelings whilst feeling very relaxed.

Relaxation is highly beneficial in itself and is often utilised in hypnotherapy, however, you do not have to be in a state of deep relaxation to experience hypnosis. Some trance like phenomena are accessible whilst being awake and aware, and many inner changes can be made without deep relaxation.

Examples of naturally occurring trance states or altered states include: Just before you drift off to sleep; upon awakening in the morning; day dreaming; finding yourself on automatic pilot whilst driving; being totally absorbed in a task; creative endeavours such as painting, dancing, playing music.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to create a better life for yourself. It’s brief, effective, empowering and holistic.

“All I can really say is wow. For a long time I’ve struggled with anxiety and lack of self-worth. I had a session with Steve and it was incredibly powerful. Not only do I feel more confident in myself, my thoughts feel a lot more supportive than destructive. Incredibly grateful to Steve and would highly recommend”. Mr A Cooper
