What is Hypnotherapy? 
Hypnosis is a very natural, altered state of consciousness that all of us experience every day when we are fully absorbed in thoughts or activities. For example, when listening to a piece of music or sitting by the sea and really becoming immersed in the experience. 
Hypnotherapy uses this calmer, trance-like state to promote quicker and more powerful changes than are generally possible in our normal, busy and often cluttered states of mind. 
Reflecting her eclectic therapeutic training and broad academic background, Jenny uses hypnotherapy as the overarching framework for therapy, and integrates techniques from other complementary disciplines to create a bespoke approach for every client.
Over the course of several sessions, hypnotherapy will normally be embedded within each therapy session, often as part of a natural conversation, and blended with structured approaches from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, insights from BWRT®, techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), meditation and breathing exercises and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). 
Most clients notice that they feel a difference in their mind or body after the first one or two sessions, and it is safe, gentle, creative and relaxing.
