Hypnotherapy in Beckenham & Bromley

Have you ever wished you could change those unwanted thoughts and behaviours? Well with Goldcrest Hypnotherapy you can!

Hypnotherapy taps into the amazing power of your unconscious mind to help you find that happiness you've been longing for.
And how does it do that, you ask? Well, through the power of hypnosis!

Hypnosis is something that happens to us naturally every single day. We all experience it multiple times every day. We all possess the power of hypnosis without even realising it. And hypnotherapy simply harnesses this natural phenomenon to work its therapeutic wonders.

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to help you go deep into your unconscious mind. It helps you uncover those hidden layers and tap into your inner potential. It's like a secret doorway to a treasure of skills and resources you didn’t realise you had. And the best part? It's completely natural and safe.

What is hypnosis?

So, picture this: you're driving down a road that you've travelled on countless times before. It's a route you know like the back of your hand. But when you finally arrive at your destination, you realise something strange. You can't remember the last few miles you drove, and you're not even sure if you stopped at a specific set of traffic lights. Weird, right?

Or imagine you're sitting at a table with a group of friends, enjoying a nice meal together. All of a sudden, someone turns to you and asks, "What do you think?" You're caught off guard because you have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. It's as if you were mentally checked out for a moment.

Believe it or not, these everyday experiences are actually examples of what we call hypnosis. In those moments, you were tapping into your deep inner mind. You were in a state of altered awareness, almost like daydreaming. You weren't asleep, but you were fully absorbed in your own thoughts. Interestingly enough, we all go through this kind of altered state more than 50 times a day without even realizing it.

During hypnosis, you enter a state of heightened awareness. You narrow down your focus to a specific stream of thoughts, shutting out external distractions. In this intense state, your conscious mind takes a backseat, and it's your unconscious mind that steps forward. Hypnotherapy leverages this state of hypnosis to help you access your inner mind on a deeper level. The fascinating part is that, even while you're under hypnosis, you can still hear and perceive your surroundings, and you can function just like you normally would.

Now, some people might wonder if hypnosis feels strange or unusual. Well, apart from providing an opportunity for deep relaxation and shifting your attention inward, there's nothing particularly unusual about it. Remember, we all experience altered states of awareness multiple times throughout the day—more than 50 times, in fact.

What is a hypnotherapy session like?

Your hypnotherapy session will always be tailored to your needs. All hypnotherapy sessions are unique. Depending on the technique used, you will either go into a deep or light hypnotic trance. Sometimes you listen throughout and sometimes you will communicate whilst in trance. A typical hypnotherapy session has four parts:

1. Hypnotic Induction

This is when you enter a heightened state of awareness. This is normally experienced as a stillness, heaviness and calmness in the body.

2. Deepening

After you have entered a state of hypnosis, you begin to deepen the experience and feel deeply relaxed. Your focus becomes more internal. You may find the analytical chatter of your conscious mind is reduced as you deepen your hypnosis.

3. Therapeutic Suggestion

Your unconscious mind listens and embraces the positive suggestions it is offered. Studies have shown that hypnosis forms new connections in the brain which allow you to change past behaviours and thought patterns. Suggestion therapy is highly effective and based on positive affirmations that provide more beneficial responses to problem situations and conditions.

4. Reorientation

You gently shift your focus to the external world and return to the present moment. You retain all the new thought patterns so you can respond in a positive way to problem situations.

Whilst a typical hypnotherapy session will have these four parts, the transition from one part to the next is seamless and you will have one continuous experience.
