    Feeling anxious or stressed out?

    The time to relax, is most important when you feel you don't have time for it...

    Tell me more...

Is Anxiety creeping up on you?

Anxiety is a normal primitive reaction in the brain to alert us to threat and causes a feeling of 'stress' in the mind and the body.  However, it is only useful if we are actually in danger.  If we are not, then this level of alertness and stress limits our rational perception to life and and can be detrimental to our well being.

Hypnotherapy helps you relax, and bring your levels of anxiety right down.

Does Stress limit your life?

Do you feel like you can't cope with situations and events in your life that you could previously?

If so, you may have what we call a full 'stress bucket', which is a metaphorical vessel in our brains indicating that it's time to relax and empty the bucket.

Are you under pressure?

Do you feel that the small things in life are getting to you?  Has your level of tolerence gone down and irritability gone up?  

If so, this suggests that your anxiety levels are too high and you may need to address things before they escalate.

Is panic attacking you?

When we feel panic, this is the brain's last attempt to get you out of a perceived threatening situation.  

This is good if you are in real danger, but if you are not, this can be a very limiting place to find yourself.

Do you feel paranoid?

Paranoia is a very debilitating condition, stopping us from performing the simplest of tasks and limit our social interactions.

We are in danger of isolating ourselves into depression if we do not tackle this negative state of mind.

How Hypnotherapy Works?

If anxiety and stress are controlling you and your life, then get in touch with us to find out how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you take control again. 

Book your Initial Consultation, and we can tailor your individual plan for you together.

Your action steps become apparent along the way that are achievable to your own suitability and pace.  The actual sessions on the couch are designed to get your mind in a positive trance state, where you learn how to relax at a deep level.  Your Hypnotherapy programme is tailored specifically for you to help you identify the goal or purpose, and supports your progress in a way that is gentle and subtle. 

During this trance-like relaxation, your brain is working at least 70 times as hard for you accessing your own internal resources and abilities within you that will be useful for you to move along the path of your purpose in a measured and disciplined way.  

Your focus will improve as well as your confidence.

Trance is of course a natural state that our brain finds itself in approximately every 6-7 mins.  The brain needs to be in this state often to be able to process events and experiences that are happening around us on every sensory level.  The brain is like a sophisticated computer processor that responds and reacts through what is being coded into it, and then performs the operations and tasks that are necessary to function.

When we go into trance on the hypnotherapy couch, this experience is called REM and is very much similar to a deep relaxation, where, your body feels comfortably heavy, but your mind feels comfortably light.  you begin to notice a detachment from the everyday thoughts and it's almost like the drifty, floaty feeling you have just before you wake up in the morning, where you are not quite awake, but not quite asleep.

This state is hugely beneficial, as your brain is at it's optimum resting point, but also at it's optimum productivity.  So, all suggestions that are positive and solution focused will be taken on board and given an action plan by you when you return to your daily tasks.

What happens in the Sessions?

The Initial Consultation with Dipti online, lasts approximately an hour and a half. 

In this session, this will be your opportunity to tell us how you would like hypnotherapy to help you, and we will be able to give you a thorough explanation of how the brain works and you will leave the session with a good understanding of how we work, and how hypnotherapy helps and whether you think that it is something that you feel you can benefit from.  

If you decide it is for you, then we can tailor the sessions to suit you, and you will be given an audio which you will be asked to listen to it every night to support your sessions.  

Usually, we will see you for eight consecutive weeks to build momentum for the changes to start taking place and then we can discuss the route depending on how you feel your progress is developing.  

You are ALWAYS in control.
