Featured Therapy – Hypnotherapy

July 21st, 2015

For July our therapy of the month is hypnotherapy.

Mike Buckley practises hypnotherapy at the centre and tell us all about the different types of this complimentary therapy. Mike is qualified to a high standard in Hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and over the years has built up a vast level of experience in his private practice. He is the Principal of the East Anglian Institute of Hypnotherapy teaching budding new therapists.

Here he talks about hypnotherapy as a complementary therapy:

‘Hypnotherapy can be deeply relaxing and can also create a powerful change and desirable effects. It can be simply a very relaxed state of mind similar to daydreaming, that you can experience very easily, 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.

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. Unlike the hypnosis you see on TV or stage, anyone experiencing hypnosis as a complimentary therapy is fully in control at all times.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is essentially the use of relaxation techniques, guided visualisation, taught thought processes and other useful and empowering techniques to promote rapid change.

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.

Hypnosis can produce remarkable results because when we deal with the root of something, the symptoms that used to cause the difficulty can be relieved.’
