Hypnosis is a very natural, altered state of consciousness that all of us experience every day when we are fully absorbed in particular 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 each and every client.
Depending on the client's issue and views, hypnotherapy may be blended with Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness and meditation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Processing (EMDR) or Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT) .
Most people notice that they feel a difference after the first session, and it is safe, gentle, creative and relaxing.
