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.
Hypnotherapy will normally be blended with Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, BWRT, techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), meditation and breathing exercises and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Most people notice that they feel a difference after the first session, and it is safe, gentle, creative and relaxing.
