Hypnotherapy Cowbridge & Cardiff
Choose Hypnotherapy Cowbridge & Cardiff to treat your conditionAre you suffering with anxiety or stress-related conditions? Are you seeking to change unwanted habits, remove phobias or cope better with emotional issues like depression? You may not have considered hypnotherapy as a viable treatment for your problems, but you’ll be surprised what hypnotherapy can treat. If it falls into the category of thought-based, emotional or behavioural issues, then hypnotherapy can help you address this. Forget those outdated concepts of swinging watches, trance-like hypnotic states in which you get stuck and mind-controlling experiences where you tell your hypnotherapist your secrets from your past. Hypnotherapy, as a respected form of therapy, has moved on from these common misconceptions with research-based evidence of its effectiveness. Put simply, hypnotherapy is state of deep relaxation characterised by focused concentration. When you are in hypnosis, you are more receptive to the suggestions given by the hypnotherapist. Suggestions are the basic mind-tools that are used to focus you towards your positive therapeutic goal. When you visualise your positive state, you are more likely to create it! There are many more techniques that a skilled hypnotherapist can employ to release past negative blocks that are inhibiting you, identify the cause of your condition or work with your mind to break down negative thoughts.

Will hypnotherapy work for me?Hypnotherapy, like all other talking therapies, requires a level of commitment and dedication to be effective. Contrary to popular belief, hypnotherapy cannot make you do something that you do not want to do. Built into the hypno-therapeutic process are a range of other therapy modalities that complements how hypnotherapy can be applied to treat you as an individual e.g. Psychotherapy, Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Most people are responsive to hypnosis when they understand what it is and what it feels like. The interaction between you and the hypnotherapist then builds that connection (rapport) to increase your level of suggestibility necessary to accelerate change.
