ALISON ALEXANDER HYPNOTHERAPY
If you find yourself struggling with problems such as stress, low self-esteem or phobias, hypnotherapy can help. As a qualified and successful Hypnotherapist with practices in Exeter, Exminster and Whimple, I can help you get your life back on track and increase your feelings of Well being.
Hypnosis is simply a state of focused attention. In this relaxed state, your mind is more responsive to suggestion. In a therapeutic setting, the suggestions that are made are designed to be beneficial to help you change unhelpful thought patterns. Clients often comment about how “ordinary” Hypnosis feels – it’s not unlike daydreaming – you can often hear everything that is being said whilst in a deeply relaxed state.
Contrary to the image portrayed in films, books and the media, Hypnosis does not involve the therapist taking control of your mind –Nobody can make you do anything you do not want to – your subconscious mind will simply reject any suggestion that is inappropriate for you.
Alison has helped me so much with my anxiety. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants solution focused therapy with fast results.
Went to Alison suffering from depression and anxiety following a breakup with my partner. I was at a very low ebb.
3 sessions later I am a different person, Alison is a lovely lady and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her, so glad I gave this a go, worth every penny.
After suffering with depression and several close family bereavements, i was looking for alternative treatments to help me, Alison has helped me enormously,straight away she made me feel at ease and after 4 sessions i am finally seeing the good in life again .I would recommend anyone feeling lost to give her a try
Thank you very much !!
''I’m a martial artist that has been learning Taekwon-Do for several years (20 years)to be exact, four years ago I changed Taekwon-Do organisation to one that closely follows the original Taekwon-Do as brought into the country from Korea.
Facing my first grading with them to 4th Degree ( international level of teaching ) I had to overcome some technical difficulties namely breaking 2 inches of wood with bear hands and feet and possibly breaking a red house brick with my feet, a task I tried very hard to do on numerous occasions resulting in several broken bones. I needed to do this or I could not pass my grading. I felt doomed as I was failing to progress.
The more negative the experience with associated pain one is subjected too, the more the subconscious mind protects the body from harm and tries it’s best to stop a repeat episode. With this statement in mind imagine how hard it was to break the wood and get past the subconscious mind?
I had 5-6 sessions with Alison who emptied the stress bucket of my mind making me feel happier more relaxed and confident generally in life and with my task ahead.
Alison re-framed the exact moves I needed to perform under hypnosis as I described them to her, for each of the breaking techniques , each time I left my confidence grew to the point I was feeling on top of the world by the time I attended the Taekwon-Do grading being graded by four Taekwon-Do Grand Masters.
Prior to meeting Alison I was ready to quit as I could not attain the grading requirements.
Having met Alison I feel over the moon like walking on air not only did I meet the grading requirements and pass but I had a life changing experience, my mind was calm I felt happy and life’s annoying things just did not annoy me any more what more could you want?
The day came and I achieved my dream.''
