Here’s a brief explanation of some of the methodologies I use and what the terms mean:
During hypnosis we access the subconscious part of the mind by entering a highly relaxed state. In this state our mind is more receptive and very open to suggestion. This in turn enables us to make changes in patterns, behaviours and how we feel. Most people find being hypnotized a very pleasant experience and are fully aware of what is going on.
NLP – Neuro-Linguistic Programming
NLP is a bit like an ‘owners manual’ on how to use your brain! At school we learned wonderful things like history and geography and algebra. But we did not learn much about how to feel good or to have great relationships.
NLP is a set of insights and skills enabling us to become more in control of our thoughts and feelings and communicate better with others as well as become better at whatever we want, for example, public speaking, dealing with difficult people, resisting chocolate or even playing sports!
CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is a therapy method that looks at our thought patterns and how we can challenge and change them. It’s extremely effective in treating things like anxiety and depression. Through becoming aware of certain triggers, we can interrupt negative thoughts which lead to us feeling low or anxious.
