Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy is the merging of two disciplines, hypnosis and clinical therapy.
According to Dr Hilary Jones (GP, TV presenter and Author) “hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within our mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thought patterns and suppressed emotions to be overcome.”

Recent medical research using MRI brain scanning, suggests that during the relaxed state of hypnosis, significant changes occur to the brain wave patterns which vastly affects human behaviour. It is during this relaxed hypnotic state, that the therapist is able to suggest positive concepts, ideas and lifestyle adaptations specifically tailored for the client that brings about remarkable changes in a very short space of time.

Clinical Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for accessing the subconscious mind – the key to unleashing our potential, changing our unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to our issues or concerns.

What Happens?

During the initial consultation, a full confidential clinical case history will be taken. This is a vital part of the therapeutic process. It provides the essential information required about you and the presenting problem so that an appropriate treatment protocol can be constructed. Please note that in some circumstances it may be necessary to contact your GP  with your permission, before treatment.  The Thames Valley Hypnotherapy Clinic complies with data protection and a strict confidentiality policy. 

A therapy plan is then discussed and agreed along with a full explanation of the treatment plan. The length of treatment depends on the issue or symptom presented. Most issues can be successfully treated between 3 to 5 sessions.
Smoking cessation is conducted in 1 two hour session only.

If we feel that a more appropriate type of therapy is more suitable for you, please be assured that we will not treat you but will refer you where necessary with your permission.
