“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything”
George Bernard Shaw
Our thoughts influence how we feel and guide what we do. Hypnotherapy works by harnessing the power of your own mind to change your thinking patterns, unhelpful emotions and beliefs.
It works by using your imagination, values and views, to change the way you think, feel and act.
Hypnosis is a safe and natural way of using your mind to focus on the things you want to change or achieve. It’s a simple and effective way of using your attention and imagination that has a powerful influence over your feelings, thoughts and actions. Hypnosis absorbs your imagination and expectations and you become engaged with a particular idea, while shutting out anything that stops you focusing on this new idea
Hypnosis works because:
No. You remain in full control of the situation the whole time. You can move and talk while you’re in hypnosis. It’s easy to take yourself in and out of hypnosis whenever you want.
All hypnosis is essentially self hypnosis. You remain aware and in control the whole time. You can’t be hypnotised unless you want to. You can always choose to bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time. Using self hypnosis, you learn to manage your thoughts, self talk and beliefs so you can live a more effective, engaged and meaningful life.
Almost everyone can be hypnotised, although some people find it easier. Hypnotism depends on your willingness to be hypnotised and your trust and confidence in your therapist. It doesn’t matter how deeply you go into hypnosis as good results can be obtained even when you feel you were not deeply hypnotised.
Hypnotherapy works best if the time is right for you, you feel comfortable and at ease with your therapist and your goals are achievable. Hypnotherapy may not be appropriate for those who have been diagnosed with severe long-term depression, psychosis, epilepsy and some breathing problems.
Here’s what my clients say
Highly recommended!It was great to finally talk to someone that understood how I was feeling. Within minutes of talking to Celia I felt she empathised with my situation and it put me at complete ease. Celia really listened to what was going on for me. I was looking for support with weight loss and chose Celia because of her outcome-focussed, evidence-based, holistic approach in which she offers a wide range of other strategies and resources alongside her core hypnotherapy work. Her sessions were key to helping me complete an NHS diabetes prevention programme and Couch 2 5K. Not only did Celia help me to lose weight, she also improved other areas of my health and well-being, such as anxiety and poor sleep.
I’m getting in touch to tell you that a lot has happened to me since I last saw you. I have moved to Bromley, have a new job and partner, I only had the confidence to take these steps because of the weight I lost with you and the help you gave me. I am still using your recordings and they keep me on track if I have a slip up.
After a couple of years facing issues around my weight and my approach to eating, I contacted Celia to see if hypnotherapy would help. From the offset Celia listened to the issues I was facing and helped me to clearly recognise where these were originating from and how my behaviour was contributing to my weight issues. The guidance and support as well as the practical exercises she gave me have helped me immensely and I am so pleased with how far I have come since starting the sessions with her. Celia is supportive, non-judgemental and the hypnotherapy and meditation exercises she has taught me really do work. The process has been really enlightening and taught me a number of things about myself that I wouldn’t have realised previously. I would throughly recommend Celia.
