Hypnotherapy utilises the power of the subconscious mind, to explore the psyche and to change our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. There is nothing extraordinary about hypnosis. “Trance” is just a state of focussed attention that we all go in and out of all the time.
There are many different branches to clinical hypnotherapy, which is commonly used alongside, mindfulness, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), regression therapy, NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and SFBT (solution focussed brief therapy).
The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focussing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness - reached using skilled relaxation techniques - allows the therapist to work with the subconscious mind and make appropriate suggestions.
It is a perfectly natural condition which, when harnessed, can release hidden potential to improve life. Perhaps the best known therapeutic uses are for stopping smoking and losing weight. However, there are countless other applications where it can be of very great benefit. These include:
- Inner Child Healing
- Stress Reduction
- Healing Memories
- Birth Trauma
- Public Speaking
Hypno-constellation is a new approach to systemic and family constellation, a powerful therapeutic approach, designed for revealing and mapping the hidden dynamics within the human relationship system. The technique, developed by Bert Hellinger, draws from other modalities, including Gestalt therapy, psychoanalysis, Virginia Satir’s family sculpting, psychodynamic therapy, shamanism and Zulu beliefs.
Our view of the world and attitude towards life is to a large extent shaped by our family. Scientific research shows us that the experiences of our ancestors can alter DNA, and determine our present behaviour. In family constellations we explore the family system over multiple generations, uncovering and releasing the underlying trauma connected to thoughts, emotions, behaviour patterns and illness.
In a private session the client visualises the constellation and works with internal representatives, which could be family members, work colleagues, partners, ex partners, archetypes and other inner parts and resources. Representatives can take on an abstract nature, such as a spirit guide, animal totem, a nation, religion or institution. Through felt sense the client experiences the energy of the representative, and gains insight into the challenges which need to be resolved and healed The process can be used for:
- Resolving difficult family entanglements
- Addressing negative relationship patterns
- Creating a loving romantic union
- Overcoming inner trauma and loss
- Success in work and career
- Healing ancestral and karmic patterns
- Clearing soul contracts
