Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool which targets the subconscious mind. It is a safe mechanism which operates by putting you into a trance state. Whilst this might sound scary, trance state actually describes a mental state that we are in and out of 24/7. It is a natural phenomenon that has been used for many years to enable us to rewrite ingrained patterns of behaviour into more productive coping tools. A trance state is when you are so completely focused on one thing, for example, watching a film, that everything around you begins to disappear. This is because, in this state, you are so in tune with your own feelings and breathing that the rest of the world is able to fade away. The time flies by without you being aware of it passing. Using hypnosis, we can recreate that trance state through deep relaxation. This gives us access to the subconscious mind where we can directly make positive changes to our habits and behaviours.
Our subconscious mind runs 90% of our behaviours. That is why we are not always completely aware of why we are feeling certain emotions, such as anxiety or stress. Hypnotherapy can help you to target and manage where these emotions come from and change them. The reason that we struggle to make these changes on our own is because we are only accessing our conscious mind. A lot of the time our undesirable behaviours are triggered subconsciously and that is why we need hypnotherapy to help make positive changes that we cannot do consciously.
Hypnotherapy at Achievable Journey, like all of our therapies, is tailored to the individual. No script needed We work with your inner strengths, making the process unique and individual to you. By combining hypnotherapy with solution focused psychotherapy, we can help you to create unique tools and the perfect environment to have positive change on your life. The solution focused approach means that we look towards the future, what you want to change and create a pathway for how to get there in the most effective way for you.
As part of our person-centred approach, I work to your individual pace and I use hypnotherapy in combination with a variety of therapeutic techniques to create the best solution for you. I use verbal, visual and non-visual communication, including body language and signing, in order to communicate best with you, particularly for children, young people or adults with Special Needs and Disabilities. I tailor the work to their needs, abilities and personal goals. In my practice, I tailor the techniques through a variety of sensory tools, including corn flower, bubbles, pictures, music and balloon, in order to communicate the therapy best. I also work closely with parents and carers in order to support them with using the techniques and strategies in general life.
