Changing thoughts, attitudes and behaviours is a very complex process. Psychotherapists have the option to use, in consultation with their clients, a variety of different therapeutic tools to assist in changing responses, thoughts behaviours and feelings. Hypnotherapy is one such option that is highly successful for a range of different issues in creating positive thoughts around past and current problematic behaviours, habits and beliefs.

Hypnotherapy Uses

Hypnotherapy can be used effectively in the treatment and management of anxiety, depression and fears and phobias. With years of training and professional experience the hypnotherapists at Philippe Jacquet & Associates are uniquely positioned to use hypnotherapy in treatments plans for patients who are dealing with anxiety, fears and phobias, habit disorders, sleeping problems, addictions or a range of other issues. Some of these issues can include changing interpersonal interactions, managing emotions, dealing with conflict or stress as well as in grief recovery.

Hypnotherapy In Psychotherapy

Whilst hypnotherapy can be a stand-alone treatment is also very effective as part of an overall comprehensive psychotherapy programme. In many cases hypnotherapy is used to address very specific desired changes, such as stopping smoking or addictive behaviours, while talk therapy allows the client to gain insight and personal understanding. This combination of therapeutic processes is a very good option for many of our clients. Most negative behaviours, thoughts or attitudes are not related to just one issue or one cause so different therapy techniques can be used to address the issues and create sustained change.

This is perhaps one of the most misunderstood types of therapy options, at least within the general public. In essence, the process allows the trained hypnotherapist to work directly with the subconscious; the part of the mind that holds the beliefs, motivations and habits that we are trying to change through therapy. With the subconscious mind open and free from the limitations of the conscious mind, suggestions are internalised and become a part of a new way of thinking and behaving.

Focussed On Clients

One of the most important aspects of the hypnotherapy offered at Philippe Jacquet & Associates is our client's understanding and comfort with this and all therapeutic methods. We will discuss, in advance, what you can expect when you undergo a hypnotherapy session and answer any questions or concerns you may have before we get started.

Clients who take part in hypnotherapy sessions will be awake and aware of everything that is going on around them at all times. The hypnotherapist will used recognised and approved techniques to induce a state of mental relaxation that allows suggestions and information to be introduced to the subconscious mind without being filtered by the conscious mind. In other words, hypnotherapy addresses, in very specific terms, the positive changes that you want to see in your life.

When you undergo hypnotherapy you will often notice that the changes you desire start to occur within a very short period of time. This is a very positive change for our clients and one that helps them with the motivation to continue to change and grow in ways that they previously may have thought impossible.
