What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to help create lasting behavioural changes. Hypnosis is one of the most ancient and respected therapeutic practices known to man. It has lasted through the centuries because it is a natural, safe, simple human process that we often do every day, often without realising it.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a procedure that uses traditional talk therapy to explore an individual’s personal goals to gain a clear understanding of how best to access the subconscious mind to attain those objectives.
Hypnosis is a focused state of awareness where the body is fully relaxed, and the mind is at a heightened state of awareness. This state allows access to the subconscious mind, where the individual becomes very suggestible. The hypnotherapist then uses suggestions to implement clients desired outcomes in therapy.
Clinical hypnosis is conducted only by professionally trained and accredited professional hypnotherapists trained in the use of hypnosis and who are working within the limits of their professional expertise.
What is Counselling
Counselling is a safe and confidential collaboration between qualified counsellor and clients to promote mental health and wellbeing, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns. Clients are active participants in the counselling process at every stage.
Our Counsellors work with children, young people, adults, couples, families, and groups and are trained in a range of modalities to work with clients from diverse backgrounds.
Focus of counselling
Counselling can be broad or focused. In counselling, clients may explore aspects of identity, spirituality, relationships with self and others, past experiences, parenting, grief and loss, trauma, domestic violence, child abuse, alcohol and other substances, depression, anxiety, and other experiences.
What outcomes can clients expect?
Changes facilitated by counselling include a change in perspective, new insight, new ways of thinking about situations, a new awareness of feelings, enhanced capacity to tolerate and regulate feelings, new actions or behaviours, and new decisions about life.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, can help an individual with a broad variety of emotional difficulties and mental health-related issues. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.
In Psychotherapy, the therapist works with the individual to improve self-awareness and to change old patterns so he/she can more fully take charge of his/her life.
Psychotherapy can also help with difficulties in coping with daily life, trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; specific mental disorders such as anxiety or depression. There are several different types of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Solution-focused Therapy (SFT), person-centred Therapy (PCT), Gestalt Therapy etc. The therapist combines elements from different approaches to best meet the needs of the individual receiving the treatment.
Therapy is conducted in an individual, family, couple or group setting and can help both children and adults.
Sessions are typically held once a week for about 45 to 60 minutes.
Psychotherapy can be short term (few sessions) dealing with immediate issues or long term (months or years), dealing with longstanding and complex issues. The treatment goals arrangements are worked together with clients and planned jointly by the client and therapist.
We provide safe and non-judgmental spaces where any issues can be explored in complete confidentiality, and our therapy rooms are welcoming and comfortable to you. We believe the right environment contributes to great therapy.
Does Psychotherapy Work?
Research shows that most people who receive psychotherapy experience relief, show positive changes in brain and body, and are better able to function in their lives (APA, 2016). Studies have also shown brain changes in people with mental illness (including depression, panic disorders, PTSD and other conditions) as a result of psychotherapy that were similar to changes resulting from medication.
What outcomes can clients expect?
Psychotherapy supports the process of change. A person may come to understand patterns of discomfort, dissatisfaction or suffering in their life. They may make meaning from this and be more able to make conscious choices that lead to a different experience of themselves and the world.
A person can develop a greater capacity to be in charge of their life, empowered and self-directing while sensitive in relationship with others. They may experience increasing joy, meaning, peace of mind and heart, intimacy with others, purposefulness, insight, creativity and self-knowledge.
The process of psychotherapy addresses more profound value, meaning and purpose of existing conditions and alleviates dysfunction in a person’s life. In addition, it goes further and addresses the foundations of longstanding patterns, supporting improved functioning. It can promote healing and integration of traumatic experiences and expand the responses that emerge in clients’ physical and emotional reactions and thoughts and behaviours.
Ways our Services Might Help You
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "I was recommended to Shahid by a friend.
I was very sceptical at first but only went initially to see if this type of therapy would make any difference as I have tried more conventional therapies over the years for my chronic pains without success. Results were almost instantaneous and I would highly recommend that you try this type of therapy for various problems ranging from phobias to confidence issues.
I have now been pain-free for over 3 months and I might add that I am a physiologist and work in the medical health profession and I now understand how powerful the mind can be in rehabilitating the body.
Thank you, Shahid"
