WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY
Hypnosis is a natural state of being. It is when a person is relaxed to a state commonly referred to as a trance. It feels something akin to that moment just before you fall asleep. Whilst in this trance like state the subconscious is more accessible and using visualisation and regression techniques problems and phobias can be redressed into a more positive frame.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A SESSION
Your initial session will take an hour or an hour and a half or more. We can decide that once we have established a outline of how we will work together.
I will gather as much information as I feel is necessary to take you through hypnotherapy session tailored specifically for you. I will use a blend of hypnotherapy techniques, both analysis and suggestion. There are no standardised scripts. You will be helped to relax and feel at ease. At no time are you under my control (you can never be made to do anything you would not morally feel compelled to do. And you will be able to talk and ask questions, though most people are so relaxed they drift as if daydreaming. The purpose is to get you to relax to a point where you have feelings similar to daydreaming or meditating.
CAN I GET STUCK IN A HYPNOTIC STATE
No, You cannot get stuck in hypnosis, you will be re-oriented back to your regular waking mood feeling refreshed and calm.

'I didn't really know what to expect. Speaking to Ruth on the phone put me instantly at ease.
After the first session I felt amazing, I started doing things I had been putting off simply out of fear. I now confront my issues and as result I have things in my life I thought were beyond my expectations. I am much kinder to myself and I notice more about how I live my life.
I would say it was life changing'
