What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all experience at various times and in various depths throughout the day. We often go into dream-like states that are a form of hypnosis. Think of a time when you were deeply concentrating on a television program and were startled by the phone ringing, or driving your car, as if on autopilot, not thinking about the controls and the route you’re taking. These normal everyday feelings occur when you are in a state of deep relaxation and focused concentration – aka hypnosis!

Getting the mind to change can be quite hard work, except when in a state of hypnosis. The mind becomes very excited while under hypnosis and is far more receptive to change. Therapeutic techniques applied during hypnosis work faster than traditional forms of psychotherapy or counselling because of accessing the subconscious mind. Consequently, I use hypnosis across many of my services and at various stages of support.

“Hypnosis is a communication of ideas and understandings to a patient in such a fashion that they will be most receptive to the presented ideas, and thereby motivated to explore their own body’s potentials for the control of their psychological and physiological responses and behaviour.” (Erickson & Rossi, 1980)

What is Hypnotherapy?

While under hypnosis, my clients experience a heightened state of concentration, awareness, and focused attention, making them far more open to suggestions. During this time insight can be gained through a new perspective. I use a combination of therapeutic processes and techniques to correct the limiting beliefs that have influenced or directed my client’s life, often resulting in radical change or gentle differences in their perceptions, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviours, while increasing positively over time.

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical hypnotherapy uses advanced methods of hypnosis and other techniques to treat a variety of medical conditions. The vast majority of people will readily respond to clinical hypnotherapy.

I use clinical hypnotherapy for the treatment of medical conditions such as pain, circulatory issues, allergies, skin conditions, psycho-sexual disorders and more, particularly those problems where other healthcare providers are involved in the overall care and management of the client’s health.

When a condition is purely physiological, I use Clinical Hypnotherapy combined with Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™), and Cell Command Therapy. The combination of these techniques creates the most powerful physiological transformation and client recovery. Click on the link below to read more about this specialist form of treatment.

What is RTT™ Hypnotherapy?

Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) Hypnotherapy embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis, hypnotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy that are known to have a powerful, transformative effect on the patient’s psychological and physiological condition. However, RTT™ goes further by diagnosing what works best with individuals for a highly effective personalised approach to their treatment.

In this way, the hypnotherapy in RTT™ does not come from a single methodology but from a unique layering of powerful, proven hypnotic techniques, processes, and beliefs.

Which one is right for me?

Often it is a blend of the therapies and techniques that we’ve reviewed here so far. The key takeaway after reading about my Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and RTT™ Hypnotherapy is that I have the skills and experience to decide what is the most appropriate for you.

What can I expect during a session of COACHD Hypnotherapy?

During your session I will help you reach a deeply relaxed state, allowing you to focus on the past events that are affecting you today. I will work with you to uncover the meaning and interpretation you created at the time of those events, and the beliefs you formed as a result. I will then help you reframe how you look at those past events from your adult perspective today.

I will help you create powerful, positive, new beliefs that will be reinforced with the aid of a personalised self-hypnosis audio that you will need to listen to once a day for 21 days. The personalised recording will help you firmly establish these positive new beliefs and help you become the person you want to be, and live the life you deserve.

Physiological issues are often directly related to our emotional state of mind. Because of this I regularly use hypnosis to explore and address any emotional issues that might be the cause, reason, and root of a patient’s physical symptoms, before addressing the symptoms themselves.

What does hypnosis feel like?

Your Subtitle Goes Here

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, much like daydreaming. My clients are often surprised that they can hear everything that is being said and can move or speak during hypnosis without being directed. Everyone’s experience of hypnosis is different and how an individual feels will quite often vary each time they go into hypnosis, particularly as they become more comfortable and familiar with the process. Some of my clients describe hearing every word I say, while others find their mind wanders a little; many of my clients lose track of time when they are in hypnosis.

How aware or unaware you are during the process is unimportant and does not affect the efficacy of the hypnotherapy. Relaxation isn’t essential to hypnosis, however, most of my clients describe themselves as feeling very relaxed during and after the session, and the experience as being far more enjoyable than they expected. Many of my clients will learn to self-hypnotise as part of their ongoing mental health journey.


Do I lose control when under hypnosis?

Your Subtitle Goes Here

No. Hypnosis is a streamlined state of focused attention, like when you are absorbed in a book, film, sport, or craft. You can emerge from hypnosis at any time if you wish. Think of me as an experienced guide, taking you on a journey; I am the facilitator, but the decisions that affect positive change can only be made by you. Realising that you are in control and can manifest and agree on positive changes yourself can be very empowering.

The more often you choose to go into hypnosis the easier it becomes to relax and get into the process, secure in the knowledge that you remain in control and can end a session of hypnosis at any point should you wish to. As most people find hypnosis deeply relaxing and a very pleasant experience, they rarely choose to do this, but they are aware that they could if they so choose.


Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

Your Subtitle Goes Here

No. There is no possibility of you getting stuck in hypnosis. During hypnosis, you remain in total control and can return to full awareness at any time without any intervention from me.


How long does hypnotherapy take to work?

Your Subtitle Goes Here

Everyone is unique, but generally, my clients only need between 1 and 3 sessions for each issue being treated. Each session lasts 90 – 120 minutes, depending on the focus area.

Following your hypnotherapy session, you will receive a Self-Hypnosis Audio that must be listened to once a day for at least 21 days.
