What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that uses guided hypnosis to help individuals achieve a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. In this deeply relaxed state, individuals are more open to positive suggestions and can access their subconscious mind to address various psychological and emotional issues. Clinical hypnotherapy is used by trained professionals to treat a wide range of conditions, from anxiety and stress to phobias and behavioural changes.


How Clinical Hypnotherapy Can Help You

Clinical hypnotherapy can help you by leveraging the power of your subconscious mind to promote healing and personal growth. It is effective for:

  • Reducing Anxiety and Stress: Hypnotherapy can help you achieve a state of deep relaxation, alleviating symptoms of anxiety and stress.
  • Overcoming Phobias and Fears: By addressing the subconscious roots of your fears, hypnotherapy can help you overcome phobias and develop a more positive outlook.
  • Breaking Bad Habits: Hypnotherapy is often used to support behaviour modification, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, or reducing alcohol consumption.
  • Enhancing Self-Esteem and Confidence: Positive suggestions during hypnosis can boost your self-esteem and confidence, helping you achieve your personal and professional goals.
  • Managing Pain: Hypnotherapy can be an effective tool for pain management, providing relief from chronic pain and enhancing overall well-being.
  • Improving Sleep: Hypnotherapy can help you develop better sleep habits and address insomnia, leading to more restful and rejuvenating sleep.


How Hypnotherapy Can Improve Performance for High-Performing Athletes

Hypnotherapy can significantly enhance the performance of high-performing athletes by tapping into the power of the subconscious mind to boost focus, confidence, and mental resilience. By using guided hypnosis, athletes can overcome mental barriers, reduce performance anxiety, and enhance their concentration during critical moments. Hypnotherapy helps athletes visualise success, reinforce positive self-beliefs, and develop a mindset geared towards peak performance. It also aids in recovery from physical exertion and injuries by promoting relaxation and mental well-being. By integrating hypnotherapy into their training regimen, athletes can achieve greater consistency, maintain optimal performance under pressure, and unlock their full potential.


What a Clinical Hypnotherapy Session Might Look Like

In a clinical hypnotherapy session, your therapist will begin by discussing your goals and concerns to tailor the session to your specific needs. The session typically starts with a relaxation phase, where you are guided into a state of deep relaxation through calming techniques and focused breathing. Once you are in a hypnotic state, the therapist will use positive suggestions and therapeutic techniques to address your specific issues. You will remain fully aware and in control throughout the session, able to respond to the therapist’s guidance. The session concludes with a gradual return to full awareness, often leaving you feeling refreshed and empowered. Follow-up sessions may be recommended to reinforce progress and address any ongoing concerns.
