Tell me about Hypno-psychotherapy…
Look into my eyes…look in to my eyes…NO! Please don’t. We’ll probably start laughing.
Hypnotherapy, ah, what can I say….it’s so not Little Britain, or stage-show hypnosis. Nor is it, as I heard it described the other day, “a heightened state of relaxation.” That brought me up with a start! Can heightened and relaxation be used in the same sentence I pondered.
This is how I describe hypnotherapy to my clients: it’s like being in two places at one time and enjoying it. On the one hand you are fully (and I mean fully) aware of everything I’m saying. And on the other – well you’re floating through layers of calm. Gently journeying inside allowing me to flick a few switches on, or off, depending on what we have identified in our talking beforehand. And the really lovely thing is: you can’t get it ‘wrong’. The level of absorption and change will be just where it needs to be for you at this time.
Will you accidentally give me your PIN? No. Besides which, I don’t want to know it!
