We offer several different types of hypnotherapy in Southend at The Body Matters. Hypnotherapy treatments are available from our clinic based in Leigh-on-Sea.
Hypnosis is an age-old therapeutic technique which is recognised by many branches of conventional medicine. It is a natural state where you will be comfortable and relaxed. You will be able to hear and converse with the therapist and retain a full and accurate memory of the session.
Hypnosis is induced by the therapist’s voice, making you more aware and alert than usual - you will certainly not lose control nor can you be manipulated against your will at any time. Used appropriately, hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment for many behavioural and/or emotional problems, including confidence and motivation issues, stress and anxiety, fears, phobias, panic attacks, weight issues, relationship difficulties, (driving/exam) test nerves, public speaking and sports enhancement.
There are various types of techniques that can be carried out by the therapist when the client is in a hypnotised state.
A hypnotherapy session does not necessarily automatically mean the therapist will use hypnosis; sometimes just talking to someone who is completely independent, and without judgement, can help you through the issue. In some cases, the aim is to guide you to help you understand more about yourself so that you are able to make the necessary changes in your life.
Please contact us to discuss which treatment is best for you.
Positive, carefully worded suggestions are used to help bring about the desired behavioural change. This form of therapy is ideal for helping with such things as exam nerves, weight control, driving test fears, smoking, nail biting and sports enhancement. It can also be used to help reduce stress.
For more deep-rooted problems, this technique aims to find and resolve the underlying cause of such things as irrational fears and emotional problems, relationship difficulties, lack of confidence, unhappiness, phobias, feelings of inferiority and many other problems.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Louise trained with the co-creator of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Richard Bandler to the level of Master Practitioner, NLP is about creating a choice in client’s lives. It brings about self-development and change allowing you to understand yourself thus allowing you to build rapport with others. It allows you to establish, realise and work towards goals in a positive way. We already have the resources within ourselves, we just need to identify them and realise our true potential.
Mindfulness is a mind-body approach to well-being that can help you change the way you think about experiences and reduce stress and anxiety. Combining meditation, breathing techniques and paying attention to the present moment, mindfulness helps people change the way they think, feel and act
You are taught skills to deal with your uncomfortable thoughts and feelings effectively - in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you
Together we will help clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you - i.e your values - then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.
