A major part of my work is helping you to cope with whatever concern you bring to me. Hypnotherapy is a far reaching and multifaceted tool which can effectively deal with most issues quickly.
If you are say, struggling to feel as if you are satisfactorily emotionally connected to your baby then hypnotherapy can help to create a space in the subconscious mind where you foster moments just for you two. Through practice, that space can grow organically until it feels natural.
Say you have had a difficult delivery and you are struggling to move past it, hypnotherapy is extremely effective in shifting the brain’s focus - not just in the sessions but (through practice) in day to day life. It has been proven to quickly shift negative thoughts patterns either away, out of the conscious mind or to neutralise them when they do arise.
As a final example, if you have a partner and are struggling to re-establish a connection together, hypnotherapy can help to break through confidence barriers and eliminate any concerns about reconnecting.
Hypnotherapy is an empowering set of skills which you can learn to implement yourself so as to foster calm and resilience.
Absolutely. It’s completely normal to feel overwhelm in such a precious but all too frequently, vulnerable moment of your life. Your attention and physical presence is required almost all the time, in a change which is literally a few hours.
The tools that are taught in hypnotherapy, and the personalised recordings that are sent out, are manageable and don’t require hours of your time. They are practical steps and techniques to put in place to ensure that by the end of the 8 sessions, you feel that you can access an inner calm whenever you need it.
Obviously having any form of commitment after giving birth is a big ask. There are 8 sessions in a package and each one will be scheduled for the next week. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy but considering the nature of this package, it is clear that if things have to be moved last minute - then I will do my best to reschedule the session.
Only a few of the sessions require quiet. There is no reason why your baby cannot be in the room for these sessions if there is not child care available.
NB When discussing birth trauma, you may find it comforting or triggering to have your baby with you. It is such a personal experience. Only you can decide how you think you will feel, I am happy to follow your lead.
This is a common misconception. When you are under hypnosis, you are not asleep.
You are still completely in control of your own body and mind. All I am doing is to help your questioning, analytical mind to quieten down so that your subconscious mind (the part which controls 98% of us) can have a larger space to process any difficult feelings.
Sometimes this can make you feel as if you’re a little sleepy for the first few moments after you ‘wake’, but this does not last long and you will more than likely feel refreshed and lighter after a session, then tired and heavy.
