Hypnotherapy like counselling, has many different approaches, at Therapy in the City I specialise in Analytical Hypnotherapy (hypno-analysis). A model that utilises free-association to release and resolve repressed emotions, conflicts and anxieties.
Analytical Hypnotherapy is a type of psychotherapy that works on the principle that every effect or symptom has a cause. This is a gentle and effective therapy that identifies the underlying cause and provides a solution to more deep-rooted psychological or emotional issues. The key to analytical therapy is that it enables you to access your unconscious mind and recall the experience that relates back to the root cause and by releasing these trapped emotions, the problem can be resolved permanently. Hypno-analysis is effective for a vast number of conditions some of which include emotional problems, trauma, panic attacks, phobias, irrational fears, relationship problems, sleeping disorders, stuttering, psycho-sexual problems and most other problems were a psychological factor may be involved.
I combine Analytical Hypnotherapy with Suggestion Hypnotherapy. This traditional type of hypnosis is effective in the treatment of minor or habitual conditions such as smoking, nail biting, confidence, performance/exam nerves, weight control, relaxation... to name but a few. It is important to note that this is a short term solution for some conditions and hypno-analysis may be required to successfully eliminate the problem long term, as suggestion therapy alone does not include analytical therapy and therefore does not establish the root cause of the ailment.
