Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a unique form of therapy, it is drug free, there is no physical manipulation and the conscious mind with its anxious or analytical thoughts is bypassed.

It is the conscious mind which can often hinder the success of other forms of psychological work, and beneficial results can often be achieved quickly with hypnosis. Using hypnosis Shiona guides the client into a relaxed state enabling direct access to their subconscious mind.

The subconscious is where our instinctive traits, patterns of behaviour and natural reactions are formed. By using positive suggestion and imagery Shiona is able to focus on the behaviours that you wish to change.

The therapy is individually focused and therefore significant, positive change can be introduced and maintained.

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is the bringing together of the conscious and subconscious minds. It is a safe, powerful technique creating a deeply relaxed state of the mind, body and emotions. It is also a perfectly natural state that we often go through in our everyday lives, i.e. whilst watching television, reading a book, or doing repeated tasks. In this state of trance your subconscious mind becomes very receptive to beneficial suggestions, accepting directions to promote positive change.

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Shiona can utilise this relaxed state of mind to help you reach your true potential or change a behavioural pattern or habit.

Hypnotherapy is a proven natural and gentle way to treat all kinds of emotional, nervous or psychological problems. It is also very beneficial for motivating people, whether for a sporting event or to succeed in personal or business life.

No-one can be hypnotized against their will and even when in trance people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate.

Hypnotherapy can help with a range of problems, including:

  • Stopping Smoking
  • Stress Management
  • Weight Control
  • Self Confidence
  • Exam Nerves
  • Fears and Phobias

Initial Consultation – FreePer Session – £45 (1 hour)

Stop Smoking – £95 (2 hours)

I am a 69 year old retired businessman who has been a smoker (cigarettes, pipe, roll ups) since my late teens. I had pneumonia twice when I was in my mid-teens but sadly got hooked on the weed anyway. Over the years I have made several attempts to stop but there was never any serious intent. However, in 2005 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and decided I should really try and stop smoking once and for all, with the aid of inhalators I managed to give up tobacco but succumbed again after a few weeks. At the beginning of 2010 I found myself coughing even worse than usual (I have had a perpetual cough for many years). However, in this instance I developed pains in my stomach which my doctor felt might have been due to my cough so I decided to try and stop smoking again. Before my first appointment with my ‘smoke clinic nurse’ I happened to hear about Shiona who was giving consultations so I gave her a call, she came to visit me and the experience was very fulfilling. After only one session I have not smoked for 8 weeks I cannot imagine being a smoker again and I am convinced this is due to Shiona. – Bill H, Abingdon, Oxon
