Hypnotherapy FAQs

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis, also known as hypnotherapy, is an age-old therapeutic technique that is recognised by many branches of conventional medicine. Hypnosis is a natural state where you will be comfortable and relaxed. It allows you to access your subconscious mind and reprogram unhelpful thought patterns. Whether you seek relief from phobias, weight management, smoking cessation, or boosting self-confidence, our tailored sessions are designed to meet your unique needs and goals. You will be able to hear and converse with the therapist and retain 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.

How does hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy works by guiding an individual into a state of deep relaxation and heightened focus, enabling access to the subconscious mind. Through this access, our skilled hypnotherapists can suggest positive changes, address underlying issues, and help individuals overcome challenges.

Is hypnotherapy safe?

Yes, hypnotherapy is generally considered safe when conducted by a qualified and trained hypnotherapist. It's a non-invasive, drug-free therapeutic technique. However, it's important that you discuss any medical conditions or concerns before starting hypnotherapy.

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

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 judgment, 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.

How many hypnotherapy sessions will I need?

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual and the specific issue being addressed. Some concerns may improve in just a few sessions, while others may require more consistent visits over a period of time.

Will I lose control during a hypnotherapy session?

No, you will not lose control during hypnosis. Hypnosis is a collaborative process, and you remain aware of what is happening throughout the session. You are always in control and can choose to accept or reject suggestions.

What conditions can hypnotherapy help with?

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, sports enhancement, smoking cessation, sleep disorders, pain management, self-esteem, and overcoming various habits or addictions.

Please contact us to discuss which treatment is best for you.

Suggestion Therapy

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.

Analytical Therapy

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.
