What To Expect From Hypnosis?
The Mind The Brain The Difference!
At the beginning of the Free Consultation, the client usually explains their reason for seeking out help with an issue they are facing. It could be something that blights their everyday experience of life, e.g. anxiety, stress or depression. It could also be a problem in a relationship or a series of them, e.g. family, partner, career or self-esteem, self-worth or confidence etc. Alternatively, life could be quite good, until they have to book a flight or go in an elevator or go to see their Dr, then the wheels fall off the trolley!
So, the initial meeting aims to get clarity on exactly what the perceived issues at hand are. Once we have done that, the search for a solution (intervention) begins. Invariably, we take a look at childhood and memories because so often, this is where some, if not most, of the roots of issues lay. As sessions progress, variations of these processes ebb and flow as a consequence of the way our brain makes associations relating to the discussion. And in essence, the process of therapy evolves out of the way the client and therapist explore the client's experiences and how they appear to be encoded in various emotional memory systems. Sometimes sessions feel like a series of starting points and there is often a lot more to it than one could ever imagine!
