Hypnotherapy In Essex

Hypnotherapy In Essex

Hypnotherapy can help you change your life!

There have been many myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnosis and hypnotherapy.

Would it surprise you to learn that the hypnotic state is actually a very natural one and one that you would go in and out of several times EVERY day, like a daydream?

Hypnotherapy In Essex

Hypnosis has been used to great effect in the therapeutic context for hundreds of years to facilitate change within the subconscious mind (the emotional part of your thinking). This is where we store everything we have ever learnt or experienced in our lives. Sometimes these experiences restrict us from moving forward or making changes in our lives.

Hypnotherapy assists the conscious mind (your everyday thoughts- where to go and what to do) and the subconscious mind to work together in harmony (emotion v rational thinking) as opposed to the 'normal' daily conflict, therefore allowing your mind to accept changes that are for your benefit.

Therapy For Children & Young Adults

The Bowden Effect - This is an approach that I have designed to help Children and Young People who are struggling with life!

Supervision & Training Analysis

Supervision & mentoring At Hypnotherapist Southend

If you are serious about being a good therapist and about looking after yourself and your clients, then Supervision is fundamental to grow and develop. Working with me, an extensively experienced therapist enables you to talk and work through and learn from your experiences and your mistakes (you would have or you will make them) address your own issues if they arise, learn how to look after yourself, discuss approaches to therapy and develop your skills.

Training Analysis

Training analysis is so important if you want to commit to being the best you can be for your clients.

Training analysis challenges us to explore who we are and how we are, it is also a learning curve to be the ‘client’. We can’t expect our clients to open up and share with us if you can’t do it yourself!

Even if you feel you had an idealic childhood and your life has been free of trauma or upset experiencing analysis yourself provides you with the considerable insight into the experiences your clients may have.

Training analysis is important for your emotional wellbeing and that of your clients too.
