Can I be Hypnotised?

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focus, very similar to the feeling of becoming engrossed in a film or daydreaming. Hypnosis is a normal state we enter regularly... watch the video  and read about the science to find out how it can support your goals either in-person or online.

Hypnotherapy & Emotional Freedom Technique

Evidence based therapies that support rapid change

Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique  rapidly alter neural pathways, turn on and off genes and regulate stress hormones, resulting in reductions in anxiety symptoms, inflammation and pain and much faster treatment outcomes than are seen from cognitive behaviour therapy, counselling and psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with medical treatments to reduce stress and pain and boost immune function.

Emotional Freedom Technique, (EFT) combines the tapping of acupressure points with the fingers and elements of mindfulness, exposure therapy, EMDR and CBT. EFT has recently been shown in a pilot study to regulate over 70 genes involved in immune function, tumour supression, insulin regulation and inflammation in just a single session. (Maharaj, M. E. 2016) A single session of Hypnotherapy has been shown to impact not only beliefs and feelings positively but alter the expression of 15 genes that enhance stem cell activity and reduce cellular stress and inflammation. (Rossi et al, 2008)

A recent study by Monash university showed hypnotherapy was just as effective at reducing symptoms of IBS when complared to people undertaking a low FODMAP diet. 

I teach the basics of EFT & Self Hypnosis in the first session to give you life long tools to help you manage stress. In 1970, Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. conducted a survey of scientific literature to compare recovery rates for various modalities of therapy:
Psychoanalysis can be expected to have a 38% recovery rate after approximately 600 sessions.
Behavior therapy (Wolpian) can be expected to have a 72% recovery rate after an average of 22 sessions.
Hypnotherapy can be expected to have a 93% recovery rate after an average of 6 sessions
