Featured Therapy – Hypnotherapy
February 15th, 2016
For February our therapy of the month is Hypnotherapy – here hypnotherapist Mike Buckley talks about what this is and what it can do.
‘Hypnotherapy can be a deeply relaxing experience, which can create powerful change and desirable effects. It can be simply a very relaxed state of mind, similar to daydreaming, keeping full control, or it can be done very effectively through the skilful use of language and subtle methods by the therapist in your normal awake state. It can be used for many things such as confidence issues, anxiety, stress, depression, phobias, stopping smoking, public speaking, social and relationship issues, pain relief, exams and tests, interviews and sports performance.
The proven techniques from the theories of Cognitive, Analytical Hypnotherapy, NLP and Psychotherapy can be applied safely and with great effect dealing with many emotional, psychological and even physical issues.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is essentially the use of relaxation techniques, guided visualisation, taught thought processes and other useful and empowering techniques to promote rapid change. It can teach you how to prepare yourself for expected and unexpected challenges you wish to perform well in. It can also teach you how to change unhelpful thought patterns to useful ones and help you deal with fears, phobias, confidence problems, anger, stress, anxiety and physical issues all with the power of your own mind.
Analytical Hypnotherapy is a technique combined with proven Psychotherapeutic theory and can potentially locate the root of an issue, for example past experiences that have an effect on the present. This can have a very powerful effect in resolving long standing emotional issues such as anxiety, depression and other emotional difficulties. An in depth consultation would be needed first before commencing this level of work and may not be suitable for everyone. This level of work can produce remarkable results because when we deal with the root of something, the symptoms that used to cause the difficulty can be relieved.’
Mike is qualified in Hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and has many years of experience in his private practice. He has a Diploma in Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy with the School Analytical and Cognitive Hypnotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy and Integrative Psychotherapy.
He is Principal of the East Anglian Institute of Hypnotherapy and teaches new therapists.
