THE A TO Z OF TALKING THERAPIES
Counsellors offer the space for a person to make sense of their own psychological and emotional issues and through support and guidance seek to help people work towards solutions to their life problems.
Hypnotherapists help you enter an altered state of awareness, one you naturally experience many times a day and also when you drift down to sleep or drift up in the morning. This state is similar to meditation except that you have an experienced therapist to guide you.
Hypnotherapists typically treat stress, addictions, compulsions and depression. They also seek to improve confidence and levels of professional performance.
Stress is part of our lives and at times, we might enjoy it. We usually stop enjoying it when it starts to take its toll on our body, affecting our performance at work and our ability to recover in our free time. Most of us understand how stress and physical symptoms can be connected, but the knowledge alone does not necessarily give us the tools to stop stress affecting our physical and mental abilities in an unwanted way.

The term Neuro-Linguistic Programming was coined by Dr Richard Bandler in the 1970s and is described as a system of therapy which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour. Is a method of influencing brain behaviour through the use of language and other types of communication to enable a person to ‘recode’ the way the brain responds to stimuli and manifest new and better behaviours. Neuro-Linguistic Programming often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change wanted.
