ALISON ALEXANDER HYPNOTHERAPY
If you find yourself struggling with anxiety, stress, low self-esteem or phobias, hypnotherapy can help. As a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist with practices in Exeter, Exminster and Whimple, I can help you get your life back on track.
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.
What can Hypnotherapy do for you?
STRESS AND ANXIETY
There are many conditions that occur or are made worse due to stress and anxiety. Hypnotherapy is thought to be very effective in treating these conditions. During your FREE initial consultation you will learn why we suffer with anxieties and how we can help to lessen the symptoms and move towards a new positive you.
Hypnotherapy is excellent at breaking the negative thought cycle of depression and low mood. It can often reduce or banish symptoms altogether and can help to reduce a recurrence.
CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM ISSUES
Whether it is public speaking, getting a new job or just talking to people, hypnotherapy can help you to focus on positive aspects of your life and to help you move on with your life.
PHOBIAS AND FEARS
As each treatent is tailored to meet the needs of the individual, almost all fears and phobias can be dealt with. With the use of Hypnotherapy, those thought patterns that can begin to interfere with daily life can be broken down and recurrence prevented.
