Getting to the Root of the Problem with Hypnotherapy
When problems are deep-rooted and long-standing, hypnotherapy can be a gentle way of understanding the past and releasing trapped negative feelings.
Freeing you to feel more at ease and with more enjoyment of life in the present and into the future.
What is Hypnotherapy and How Can it Help Me?
Hypnotherapy is a gentle and powerful therapeutic technique that uses guided relaxation and focused attention to access the subconscious mind.
By working with the subconscious, hypnotherapy enables clients to uncover and transform the deep-rooted beliefs and thought patterns that contribute to anxiety and other emotional challenges.
Anxiety often stems from limiting beliefs and negative thought patterns that have become deeply ingrained in our subconscious minds.
Through hypnotherapy, we help you to access these subconscious beliefs and replace them with more positive, empowering alternatives. This transformative process allows you to develop a healthier, more balanced mindset that fosters resilience and confidence in the face of life’s challenges.
You may have concerns about hypnosis and hypnotherapy after seeing stage hypnosis or TV shows. Clinical hypnotherapy is a very different experience, a co-operation between you and your therapist. You will be in control at all times and can choose what to share or not share with your therapist.
Clinical hypnotherapy can be a “secret therapy” where you don;t have to share any details with your therapist, working with bodily sensation and metaphors.
How Can Hypnotherapy Help to Relieve Anxiety?
By addressing the root cause of your anxiety, hypnotherapy not only provides relief from anxiety symptoms, but also equips you with the tools to maintain your newfound sense of inner calm and emotional balance.
At its core, hypnotherapy operates on the idea that the mind has two parts: the conscious and subconscious. While the conscious mind is focused on the present moment, the subconscious is always processing information and can sometimes get stuck in negative patterns that cause stress and other issues.
Fortunately, hypnotherapy offers a way to access the subconscious mind and reprogram negative beliefs and habits. By using relaxation techniques, guided imagery, and positive suggestions, our skilled hypnotherapists can help you overcome the issues that have been holding you back.
What Results Can I Expect from Hypnotherapy?
Through hypnotherapy, you can release negative beliefs and habits and replace them with positive ones that promote relaxation and wellbeing. This can lead to a range of benefits, including:
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Improved sleep quality
- Increased feelings of calm and relaxation
- Greater self-confidence and self-esteem

If you’re considering hypnotherapy for relief from anxiety and stress, you may be wondering how the process works. Generally, a hypnotherapy session will involve the following steps:
- Relaxation: Your hypnotherapist will guide you into a state of deep relaxation, which will help you to access your subconscious mind more easily.
- Suggestion: Once you are in a relaxed state, your therapist will provide positive suggestions to help reprogramme your subconscious mind. These suggestions may be related to specific issues you are dealing with, or they may be more general in nature.
- Regression: When issues are deep-rooted or long-standing, regression therapy may optionally be helpful. Regression hypnotherapy is a safe and proven process which helps you to understand the roots of the problem. Your therapist can help you to transform the problem from the perspective of your current day insights and understanding, so that you release the old beliefs and anxieties. This enables you to update your thoughts, feelings and behaviour and experience freedom from the problem.
- Imagery: During the session, the hypnotherapist may use guided imagery to help you visualize positive outcomes and experiences. This can be an incredibly powerful tool for overcoming negative beliefs and patterns.
- Awakening: At the end of the session, your hypnotherapist will guide you back to a fully alert state. You will usually feel relaxed and refreshed, and you may notice a positive shift in your mindset.
