Has your Self Confidence disappeared?

A good level of Self Confidence and Self Esteem are extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives.  We all need a good and healthy level of confidence to be able to get through our day and ultimately our lives succesfully.  It's a part of us that can get hidden under anxiety.  

Hypnotherapy helps you uncover it and find your way back into a confident, happy, 'you' again.

Mirror Mirror

Do you dread looking in the mirror and usually try and avoid it?  This is normal if you feel bad about yourself.  Using positive visualisations and hypnosis, your perception of yourself can change to a much more positive one.  

People Pleaser?

If this feeling is taking over, your anxiety levels will be on high alert in your daily life and you may not be getting the best out of yourself or the situations you find yourself in.  Hypnotherapy helps you put yourself first.

Fear of trying new things?

Feeling less adventurous and concerned about failure?  New experiences overwhelming for you?  This is because your brain wants to stay in it's comfort zone.  Hypnotherapy helps extend your comfort zone safely and steadily.

Don't want to socialise?

Are you reluctant to meet friends or go out like you used to?  Do you make excuses not to stand out?  Hypnotherapy can help you come out of the shell again and start to interact with life, like you used to in a safe and supported way.

How Hypnotherapy Works?

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

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.

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.  


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 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?

Book your Initial Consultation with Dipti - which 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.
