My Approach

A positive hypnotherapist approach to clients is rooted in empathy, trust, and collaboration. These practitioners create a safe and welcoming environment where clients feel valued and heard. They focus on building a strong rapport, taking time to understand each client’s unique needs, concerns, and goals.

Positive hypnotherapists emphasize empowerment, helping clients tap into their inner strengths and resources to facilitate positive change. Instead of imposing solutions, they guide clients through a journey of self-discovery and self-improvement.

Additionally, they maintain a solution-focused mindset, concentrating on the client’s desired outcomes rather than dwelling on problems. This approach helps clients envision a brighter future and work toward it with enthusiasm!

"I had been struggling with crippling anxiety for years, and it was affecting every aspect of my life. I decided to try hypnotherapy as a last resort, and it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. My hypnotherapist helped me tap into the power of my subconscious mind and reframe my thoughts and beliefs. After just a few sessions, I felt a profound sense of calm and control over my anxiety. I can't thank my hypnotherapist enough for giving me my life back!"

Eoin – Age 34

"I had been a smoker for over 20 years and had tried everything to quit without success. Then, I heard about hypnotherapy for smoking cessation. Skeptical at first, I decided to give it a shot. It was truly a life-changing experience. During the hypnotherapy sessions, I felt like my cravings and addiction were being rewired. It's been six months since my last cigarette, and I have no desire to smoke anymore. Hypnotherapy worked when nothing else did."

Mary – Age 47

"I had always struggled with low self-esteem and lacked confidence in both my personal and professional life. Hypnotherapy helped me uncover the root causes of my self-doubt and provided me with the tools to build unshakable self-confidence. The transformation was gradual but profound. I now stand tall, speak up in meetings, and pursue my goals fearlessly. Hypnotherapy gave me the confidence to be the best version of myself."

Sarah – Age 16

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hypnosis?

A state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion. It is a non-addictive power for good and is a natural manifestation of the mind at work.

Are there some people you cannot hypnotize?

No. (Except the mentally handicapped, although of course the degree varies from person to person).

Are drugs or tablets used?
No.

Shall I be aware of what is happening?

Yes. The predominant feeling of most people is – “It didn’t work for me – I never went under.”

So I am not asleep then?

No. You are simply extremely relaxed. This is why the technique is called “conscious hypnosis”.

Is there any cause at all for concern?

None whatsoever. Hypnosis is a proven therapeutic aid.

How many visits will I need?

Simpler problems like smoking, nail-biting, slimming, pre-test nerves etc. usually require 1-3 sessions and the success rate is surprisingly high. The more deep-rooted nervous disorders require “analytical” rather than “suggestion” therapy which usually consists of 8-12 weekly sessions.

Could I be influenced to do anything against my will or nature?

No. In fact you would be shocked out of the hypnotic state immediately any such action was suggested to you.

Can “normal” people undergo hypno-psychotherapy and psycho-analysis?

Not only can they, but they should. For an insight into yourself, it has no equal.
