The Benefits of Hypnotherapy
It’s important to acknowledge that your subconscious mind contains all of your life experiences and understands the reasons behind the problems you are dealing with. I called my business ‘Inner Voyage’ because by looking within and exploring your deeper mind, I can help you process emotions, reprogram behaviours or habits, and shift any negative beliefs which are no longer serving you.
My methods are ‘client centred’ because I help you uncover and address any underlying problems related to your goals. These may or may not be outside of your conscious awareness. This is far more effective than merely giving suggestions to ease your current situation. By healing from past experiences permanent changes and benefits can be realised.
By approaching every session with an open mind, you will be able to get the most out of it, whilst continuing to take the steps needed to achieve your goals.
Preparing your space for Online Hypnotherapy sessions
One benefit of online hypnotherapy is that the sessions can be carried out in the comfort and security of your own home. It’s important to have a designated space for your sessions, which is quiet and calm, a place in which you feel relaxed. Typically a couch or reclining chair is best. You will want to make sure you won’t be disturbed by anyone, or by pets if you have any. Make sure you turn off your TV, and put your phone on silent, and do whatever else may be needed to ensure your surroundings are quiet and restful.
You will need a stable internet connection, and a computer or device with a webcam, and headphones so you can hear me clearly. I frequently check in with my clients asking them to nod or reply to me throughout the session, so it’s important I can also see and hear you too! During our first consultation I can give you some advice on setting up your space and check that your camera and microphone are working if needed.
Is online hypnosis safe?
There are some misconceptions about hypnosis, mostly brought about by stage hypnotists and the media. The most common of which, is that a person can become stuck in the hypnotic state. This isn’t the case at all, during our first session together I implement necessary steps so that you can return to normal waking consciousness at any time should you need to, or if we lose internet connection.
Secondly, hypnosis is not a form of mind control; stage hypnotists give the illusion that this may be the case. This is because they have carefully selected members of the audience who are able to go into a very deep level of trance and display a willingness to take part in the show. When I work with clients I actively encourage them to be present during the session, giving them the ability to respond and communicate anything they wish to me whilst still remaining in a relaxed trance state. My clients are in control at all times, and settle into to a level of hypnosis which feels most comfortable to them. Results are achieved regardless of the depth of trance, some people remain more aware and like to follow along to every word; while others enjoy drifting deeper… either way works for you.
My online hypnotherapy sessions have become popular, because they offer the same personal approach to self-development and understanding as my face-to-face sessions, without restrictions on where you live.
