Hypnotherapy in East London and via Zoom
The methods of hypnotherapy I am trained in, Cognitive Hypnotherapy by Trevor Silvester, and Hypnoanalysis by Dr Norbert Preetz, recognise that each person is unique. Even if several people appear to have the same problem, for example, fear of public speaking, each does their problem differently because of their specific history and constitution.
Therefore, our first consultation is very important to get a better sense of who you are and which techniques can bring the most profound results.
My Training Includes:
Direct and Indirect hypnosis
Milton Erickson modelling
What Can Hypnotherapy Help With:
eating and body issues
stress and negative feelings
What Is Hypnosis Or Trance?
Hypnotherapy has nothing in common with
Stage Hypnosis, which is used for entertainment purposes.
Being in a trance (an altered state of consciousness) is similar to when you are driving in your car whilst having a conversation going on in your head, and somehow you arrive at your destination. We say that it was your unconscious that guided you.
Research suggests that we are only fully aware, or conscious of our doings 10% of the time whilst the rest of the time our unconscious is in charge.
A hypnotherapist uses a trance, where you are in full control at all times, to facilitate a “conversation” with your unconscious to help you to find the root of your problem and to free you from the negative emotions that are attached to it, which limit and restrict you in certain areas of your life.

What To Expect
In your first session, we explore your problem or issue: How you do it? When and Why it occurs? We discuss your goals and how you can achieve them. If appropriate you will be sent an MP3 download that is especially recorded for you to listen to until your next session where we continue with the treatment plan we both agreed on.
Standard sessions last between 60 -75 minutes. Typically 2 - 6 sessions are sufficient to undo a problem because once you have ‘reset’ your brain patterns change is generative without the active role of a therapist. Sessions can be held in person or via Zoom.
If at the end of the initial session you or I believe this is not the right approach for you, the session will not be charged. I may recommend another therapist that may be better able to help you.
Q: How do I know that I am hypnotised?
A: Being hypnotised is a feeling of deep relaxation with focused attention. You can imagine it as watching a beautiful sunset that fully absorbs your attention.
Q: What if I cannot be hypnotised?
A: Some people find it easier than others to get into a hypnotic (or trance) state. However, most of us have already experienced being in trance on a daily basis without realising it. For example, when you drive or walk your habitual route home and suddenly you are at your door with no recollection of the past few minutes, you were in a trance.
Q: Will I reveal things I do not want to say?
A: You cannot be manipulated into saying or doing things you do not consent to. You actively participate in your hypnotherapy session and you will always be in control.
Q: What if I get stuck in hypnosis?
A: In the history of hypnosis, this has never happened.
