Hypnotherapy – Access All Areas – via the Unconscious Mind

Hypnotherapy is simply the therapeutic use of hypnosis as a way of accessing the unconscious to resolve a very wide range of issues ranging from irrational fears and phobias to anxiety and depression; from emotional trauma to weight management; from challenges with relationships or money to giving up smoking. Or it can be used to harness the potential of the unconscious to provide motivation and positive suggestions to overcome stressful situations: exam nerves, driving test blues, yips on the golf course, giving presentations to large audiences ….

Have you ever been mesmerized by flames in a log fire? Or been lost in a beautiful piece of music? Have you been in a car on a rainy journey as the wipers slip-slapped against the windscreen? Then you have slid into “an altered state of consciousness” – precisely the “trance state” that is induced in a session of hypnotherapy.

The mind is like an iceberg

The mind is like an iceberg, with the 10% that shows above the surface of the ocean being the conscious mind, controlling our day-to-day activities and rational, cognitive functions. The 90% of the iceberg sitting quietly below the ocean equates to the unconscious mind. This is the control centre, the computer hard drive, and by by-passing the conscious mind, the hypnotherapist can access the unconscious mind. Not only does it monitor all the physical and biochemical processes that keep us alive, such as breathing and temperature control, it also influences our overall health and wellbeing. It is in the unconscious mind that all memories and traumas, feelings and emotions are stored, and it is here that the therapist works to find the real underlying emotional root cause of an issue.

Cranio Sacral Therapy – what happens during a session?

Written by Caroline Burton. Posted in Blog

Vinings is delighted to welcome Lisa Moore, an experienced Cranio Sacral Therapist, to the team of practitioners working from the lovely relaxed surroundings of Vinings Natural Health Centre.

Lisa explains what to expect from a typical session:

“We will always start with a written case history, this allows me to understand the exact reasons for your visit, and this is really important. Typically the session lasts between 40 – 50 minutes, although this can vary. You remain clothed, and will usually lie face up, but if this is uncomfortable you can lie on your side or you may be seated.

I will make light contact with your head, the base of your spine, and other areas, encouraging your body to relax and begin to make the changes it needs. Sometimes you will feel as if I am moving your head, arms or legs but it should all feel natural and comfortable, there is never any force applied. Because the body functions as a whole, I may focus on areas other than where your symptoms occur – remember the song: your hip bones connected to your thigh bone? Well, everything is connected, so an issue in your neck could be related to a sprained ankle that happened a long time ago. I know it sounds odd but our bodies are very good at bringing us back to “normality” and if this means that you stand slightly twisted as that eases a pain on your ankle, then this will form a habit that may eventually manifest as neck pain!

After a session there is occasionally a short period of adjustment as part of the healing process, where you may become more aware of symptoms. Sometimes people report relief after one one or two sessions: this was certainly true for me when I started having CRT! For long-standing problems, further sessions may be needed, and many people report that they benefit from regular treatent – think of it as a regular MOT! They say that, as well as noticing improvement in their physical or emotional symptoms, they feel that they have more awareness of their own needs and strengths, and their quality of life has improved.”

If you feel that some sessions of Cranio Sacral Therapy with Lisa  could help you, call her on 01444 847 951 or email her on lisa@fitformoore.co.uk.

Are you a typical client for hypnotherapy?

Written by Caroline Burton. Posted in Blog

“Who is a typical client for hypnotherapy? What would a client come to see me for?” asks Vinings’ Hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression Therapist, Judy Sharp.

I have been looking through my client files recently, analysing who it is who has come to see me, and why.

The age range is from mid-20s to late 60s, with a couple of clients in their 70s. Proportion about 1/3 men to 2/3 women. Issues range far and wide, from various fears and phobias to giving up smoking; from weight problems to pain control. But actually, underlying many of these “presenting problems” as we call them, were emotional and relationship issues.

Typically a woman will reach that point in her life when the youngest child is just off to university, there could well be a crisis of some kind in the relationship with her husband, perhaps issues from her childhood have been triggered …. any one of these on its own would be enough to pile on weight, but two or more and it is almost certain that there will be comfort eating and it will be tough to get rid of the excess weight. I don’t recommend more hours in the gym or fewer lettuce leaves for lunch; rather I help the client to trace back the real root cause of the issue, and we resolve it at source, be that childhood in this life or way back in another lifetime. 

Or it may be that a client will say something like, “I feel something’s come over me” or “I’m not myself” or “I want my old self back:” Have you found yourself saying that? That indicates to me that you could well have picked up a spirit “Passenger” along the way. Nothing dramatic, it can be sorted out very easily – and voilá, you have your old self back!

Fear of success; addictive behaviours; nagging anxiety; sleep walking or activity in a sleep state; lack of confidence: do any of those ring a bell with you? If so – you are a typical client for hypnotherapy, and I would love to hear from you!

You can call me on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512.
