Hypnotherapy in Pregnancy
Hypnotherapy is about working together so that you can be empowered to create positive change in your life.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to help with medical, psychological and emotional problems.
How can Hypnotherapy help in Pregnancy?
Hypnotherapy can help in many ways.  If you are taking the Hypnobirthing programme, a complete childbirth programme in itself, you may find you need to address more personal issues depending on your life experience.  If you're not taking the Hypnobirthing programme, you may still benefit from individual Hypnotherapy sessions depending on your needs.
Hypnotherapy can help you with specific issues, such as:
  • Emotions
  • Fears
  • Anxiety
  • Tension
  • Morning sickness
  • Turning a breech baby
Hypnotherapy has the power to help you focus on your pregnancy with a positive outlook and can help you look forward to a positive experience.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring form of relaxation and inner concentration, and is also accompanied by a state of heightened awareness.  We all experience hypnosis as part of our every day lives, e.g. when doing things on autopilot like driving, being engrossed in a good book or a television programme.
Hypnosis is NOT sleep.  The body is deeply relaxed although not necessarily but mainly the mind is sharpened and more focused.  Hypnosis techniques are only a means to achieve this state.
In this state, we have direct access to our conscious mind where we store all our emotions, habits and behaviours, but also our resources.  We are able to gain insights and a new perspective on problems.  We are also better placed to tap into our inner resources to help resolve issues.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis!  Your therapist is merely a facilitator.
There is NO magic wand, Hypnosis is not sleep, I can only help you if you are be willing to do the work!
What happens in a session?
The initial session covers full history taking with a confidential, detailed discussion outlining the issue(s) causing you concern.  You will also be able to experience hypnosis.
Subsequent sessions consist of a split between discussion and hypnosis.  To help you, I will use a range of techniques such as imagery, visualisation, regression, past life regression, inner child work, suggestion techniques, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Eye Movement Therapies and Energy Psychology techniques such as EmoTrance and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), etc.

Questions & Answers
Will I be able to be hypnotised?
Yes, anyone can be hypnotised as long as they want to.
Will I loose control?
No, nobody can be made to do anything they do not want to do.  An individual in hypnosis retains freedom of choice, free will and complete awareness of themselves and everythign that is happening  around them at all times.
Can I get stuck in hypnotic trance?
No, anyone is free to come out of the hypnotic state at any time they choose.
How about stage hypnosis?
Stage hypnosis exists purely for entertraiment value, it often appears to show that the hypnotised person has surrendered control to the hypnotist but this is not the case.  By being there the hypnotised person has volunteered and therefore agreed to the experience of stage hypnosis.
