“Hypnosis encourages a gentle focused stillness to calm the mind and release tension in the body. This simple letting go allows you to make inner adjustments with greater ease and enhances your ability for learning and positive change.”
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Marie is able to draw on the discipline of hypnosis to help treat a range of issues from addiction and phobias, to overeating and insomnia.
Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to achieve a relaxed and focused state of consciousness, much like that experienced during meditation. Whilst in this state, you are more likely to accept suggestions to make positive changes, reduce or eliminate unwanted habits or impulses, modify limiting beliefs, and resolve persistent problems.
There are many common misconceptions about hypnosis and some people fear that they may be asked to do something against their will or that they will lose consciousness. Neither of these are true; in fact during hypnosis, you stay in control the entire time and though you enter into a state of deep relaxation, you are aware of the entire process.
Other issues Hypnosis can be beneficial for include:
Hypnosis evokes a normal and naturally occurring state of mind which everyone has the potential to enter. The therapy is most effective with people who approach it openly and are ready to change. Whilst the length of therapy varies case - by - case; for example, 1-2 sessions in order to quit smoking; generally 3-4 sessions are required to experience the full effect of the therapy.
