Hypnosis enables you to enter into a deeply relaxed state. You're fully in control at all times and contrary to some beliefs will not start clucking like a chicken! The word Hypnosis is derived from the ancient Greek word for sleep. However, although sometimes people drift off it is more effective on a collaborative basis so a client is encouraged to work with the therapist on a guided journey using various methods and adopting a positive mindset of belief in the process. While there are many myths and misconceptions, hypnosis can used as a therapeutic tool and has many medical and therapeutic benefits such as reduction of pain, anxiety or depression and an increase in confidence and self esteem. It can also help with phobias, losing weight, PTSD, habits , sleep issues and many more.
Neuro linguistic programming was created by John Grinder and Richard Bandler and made a connection between neurological processes (Neuro) language (linguistic) and behavioural patterns learnt through experiences (programming). There are many techniques that can be used alongside Hypnotherapy using NLP to help someone change their beliefs and behaviours to help achieve the desired outcomes. NLP empowers, enables and teaches us to better understand the way our brain (neuro) processes the words we use (linguistic) and how that can impact on our past, present and future (programming). It gives us strategies for observing human behaviour and learning from that. Change is possible - all you need is a desire to change and a willingness to learn new ways of being…with yourself, your thoughts and with others.

Studies show that reiki treatment may create feelings of Peace, Relaxation, Security and Wellness. Reiki treatments typically last about 50 minutes. During a session, you’ll lie on a massage table fully clothed, and I will gently place my hands, palms down, on or just above your body in specific Chakra energy locations. I will use a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions. You may experience the energy in the form of sensations like heat, tingling or pulsing where i have placed my hands. Sometimes, people feel sensations moving throughout the body, while other people do not perceive any change at all. Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful during reiki treatment, and many fall asleep during the process. The length of time that the practitioner leaves their hands in each position is determined by the flow of energy through their hands at each location. Reiki differs from other touch therapies in that there is no pressure, massage or manipulation involved.
