Looking for the best hypnotherapy Bristol has to offer? You’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the best hypnotherapists in Bristol.
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses hypnosis. It’s not a short, quick fix to all your problems. It’s an approach which can help with many issues including self-esteem, confidence, stress and phobias.
The client relaxes in a lounge chair facing away from the therapist and eyes closed while listening to soothing music through headphones. A hypnotic induction helps you enter into a state of deep relaxation where you are more open to suggestion. Through this process we will be able to address any issues for which you seek assistance. The whole process takes the average time frame of about one hour on each session up to five times over in order to achieve your goal. There are many different methods in helping treat people through hypnotherapy, but the common denominator is still deep relaxation – that’s why hypnosis and meditation work similarly.
Most of us have a bad day at work or something else happens; we feel down and possibly more susceptible to things like smoking, alcohol, eating unhealthily etc. Hypnotherapy can help you shift your mind-set on issues like these for example quitting smoking. It could also be used as a foundation for positive thinking ahead of trying IVF treatment which has been proven to improve success rates by 25%. You could even be using it for weight loss or dental phobias! Whatever your reasons it can help you achieve your goals.
The average time frame of each session is between 30 minutes to an hour. This can vary depending on the issue being treated and how many sessions you have. It may take five to seven sessions to get the desired results, so it’s important that we work together as a team in order for this treatment process to be effective.
Yes. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; actually, it occurs most commonly when people are driving or when they wake up in the morning! There’s no use of drugs, physical force or anything like that – just relaxation techniques by way of hypnotic induction which guide you into a trance-like state in order to release your inhibitions, fears and phobias.
First of all you need to find out if the hypnotherapist is certified. It’s easy, just check your state and provincial associations, there should be a list on their website. I’m also an ICF (International Coach Federation) certified practitioner which means that my training has been approved by the International Coaching Federation.
Secondly; ask questions about what they have achieved with other clients? Do they specialize in specific areas like weight loss or quitting smoking? Have they had previous experience as an athlete? What methods do they use? And finally what will be covered in each session?
Remember: if you don’t get the answers you’re looking for – or feel pressured to book a session right then and there, walk away. You need to be comfortable with your therapist as this is something that will be affecting you over the months ahead. You want someone who supports your goals and empowers you in order for them to succeed!
There are so many benefits – and not just for one particular issue. Every session could help you with a new problem; it’s really up to the client! Here are some of the benefits:
