Hypnotherapy as the name suggests is a therapy
treatment that uses hypnosis as a tool to aid a positive required
outcome. Hypnosis dates back hundreds of years and is backed by
a large empirical evidence base. The experience of hypnosis is
a pleasant one with the recipient always being aware of what is
happening in the therapy session. While under hypnosis you will
only say and do what you wish to. Some hypnosis treatments require
you to be very relaxed both physically and mentally. Some people
report feeling so relaxed that they experience a trance-like sensation.
Other treatments require the client to be very engaged, collaborating
with the therapist to achieve results.
How many sessions will I need?
That depends on the individual and presenting
issue. Traditionally, stopping smoking has been achieved in a
single 2 hour session with a free short backup session if required.
The hypnotic gastric band treatment is over 3 separate 1 hour
sessions. All other presenting issues are discussed and identified
on a case by case basis. However, it is recommend for at least
two sessions for all treatments with a possibility of further
sessions in some cases.
