What Is Hypnotherapy?
Many people think hypnotherapy is like stage hypnosis. It is not. Hypnotherapists practice hypnotherapy and combine hypnosis + therapy for therapeutic advantage whilst hypnotists are performers that combine hypnosis + illusion to create the impression of control for entertainment purposes.
What To Expect During The Discovery Session
We’ll use Zoom for this 50-minute consultation. You’ll tell me about your insomnia & we’ll discuss your symptoms, the problem, the root cause & the solution. I’ll explain how hypnotherapy works & I’ll dispel a few myths. You’ll see how it works.
A Word About Insomnia And Hypnotherapy
Insomnia is very common these days. In our busy lives, stress and anxiety creep up on us gradually and we get used to that feeling, which becomes the new normal. The resulting elevated levels of stress hormones may keep us up at bedtime and then when sleep does come, it will either be light, and not long enough or long, but not good enough.

Fall Asleep Quickly
Hypnotherapy reduces stress and anxiety and relaxes and quietens the mind which stops the noisy chatter and allows you to fall asleep much faster.
Get Quality Sleep
Hypnosis easily activates the body’s natural relaxation response systems and improves the quality of your sleep. Sleep deeper. Sleep longer. Sleep better.
Wake Up Rested
Reduced anxiety and stress allow Rapid Eye Movement to focus on detox, rest, repairs, and healing, allowing you to sleep deeply and wake up fresh and rested.
Lack of sleep can really take its toll on your body and mind
It can be tough to get a good night’s sleep, leaving you feeling exhausted and stressed. Not being able to sleep can be incredibly frustrating, and it’s easy to feel like you’re the only one struggling with this issue. Hypnotherapy is a great way to help resolve insomnia. With hypnotherapy, you’ll learn how to relax and fall asleep quickly and easily. You’ll also learn how to get the most out of your sleep time so that you feel refreshed and energised when you wake up.

We’ll Discuss What Matters To You: Whether you’re suffering from IBS, insomnia, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, fears, phobias, or something else you’ll get to tell me what’s on your mind.
How The Brain Works: I’ll explain how the brain works in relation to your experiences and I’ll show you exactly how hypnotherapy can help you in your situation.
Relief: Many people walk away from this session feeling a huge sense of relief because they realise; they’re not alone, they’re responding normally and they’re not going nuts. They leave the session hopeful because they learn that there is a solution.
Your Questions Answered: We’ll talk about why you feel the way that you do. We’ll discuss the conscious, positive part of the brain and the subconscious, negative, survival part.

We’ll talk about R.E.M and the benefits of sleep, and we’ll also mention the stress bucket states; relaxed, coping, stressed, overwhelmed, and overflowing.
Your Personal Goals: We’ll note your best hopes and goals, and we’ll discuss what success looks like for you. I’ll explain what hypnotherapy and trance are and will answer any questions.
Your Treatment Plan: Everyone is an individual and is a little different and whilst it is not possible to predict exactly how many sessions you may need; I can give you an estimate based on other clients’ recoveries from similar situations.
Guided Hypnosis Relaxation Recording: I’ll give you a 30-minute Guided Hypnosis Relaxation Recording (MP3) after the Discovery Session if you choose to embark on a treatment plan.
Breathing Exercises: For clients who experience panic attacks or intermittent, raised levels of anxiety I’ll also send a link to download a breathing app to help reduce or stop those elevated anxiety situations.
Time to Talk: I acknowledge that questions and observations pop up at all sorts of interesting times and as such, I encourage you to get in touch with me after the initial Discovery session if any questions pop up.
