It is likely that you have experienced a light state of hypnosis at some point today. Perhaps whilst reading the paper, or when you were driving or watching TV.
Hypnotherapy is using this lovely state of deep relaxation for therapeutic purposes.
During your hypnotherapy session I will seek to guide you into a super relaxed state, which is also a state of hyper-focus and increased suggestibility. It is in this state that we can be able to focus the mind on creating healthier behaviours, as well as uncovering reasons for specific behaviour patterns.

Many of us simply want to feel better about ourselves and have found that the ego-strengthening that can be achieved through hypnotherapy has unlocked a new future for them.
Hypnotherapy can be used to help you with almost any behaviour that you would like to steer away from or a new behaviour that you would like to embrace. Contact me to discuss further!

Perhaps you made a plan to go to the gym four times a week but slacked off by the third week. Maybe despite knowing you need to loose a dress size in order to fit your wedding dress you still cannot say no to a piece of cake?

At Living Joy Hypnotherapy I use client centred hypnotherapy, which means that I will identify the best course of action for the specific issue that you are looking to address during our consultation, rather than looking to fit a method around your issue.
