Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy

What Is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a profound inner space; a place to discover oneself. It offers an altered state of mind that bypasses our critical thinking factors, and as we bypass this part of the brain, we gain access to the subconscious, where millions of bits of information are stored, including memory, feelings, the body’s ability to breath, move and function – essentially everything that we do that’s automatic. We are in and out of this state all day long, when we watch TV, read a book, daydream…

Hypnotherapy is therefore a form of psychotherapy; where counselling skills are used, a full case history is taken, a rapport or therapeutic alliance established, problems and goals defined, misconceptions dealt with, and therapeutic strategies (for both the hypnosis and non-hypnosis part of the session) discussed and agreed.

Integrative Hypnotherapy is performed by myself: a qualified practitioner who applies various approaches in an integrative and sometimes eclectic way, drawing upon the broad spectrum of psychotherapeutic philosophies and treatments.

I am trained in many therapies and approaches, but I tend to use Rational Emotive Therapy (REBT): a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). When integrated with hypnotherapy, it becomes a very powerful way to work with more complex emotional issues, psychological problems and disorders. This model is designed to work with fewer sessions in comparison to the standard CBT. Please click here to see more of my approaches.

How I Work

I work from a four-stage problem-solving process:

Stage 1. Even if you may not know what the problem is, we will spend a good amount of time taking a full case history, discovering what resources you have and how to help.

Stage 2. You might know what the problem is, but you don’t know what to do. As we know, many people can end up for in therapy for years on stage 2, knowing what their issues are, yet unable to move forward. I work in a solution-focused way setting SMART achievable goals, so you can make better progress in a shorter amount of time.

Stage 3. We’ll figure out a treatment to get you to your goal, based on our agreed treatment plan. I generally work within an evidence-based framework which helps us to find the best therapeutic treatments and techniques, helping to align us as hypnotherapists and other healthcare professionals.

Stage 4. We get to the GOAL, and integrate the new wanted behaviours into your life!

“My very first therapy session with Sonia was incredible. I was left with tears of joy…I had never experienced anything like it before. It was like I touched something deep inside that needed freeing and I felt a deep sense of love and gratitude. I have had so many realisations about my life and such clarity over the course of treatment. Her voice is very gentle and tender, you can just trust her and feel safe in her presence.

All of my sessions have been online, I have been doing a form of CBT with Hypnotherapy for the past few months and have found it to be very powerful. I have seen huge changes in my life. I am not so hard on myself and finally feel some real self-acceptance and made some career changes in my 60’s! I’m finally doing what I love and really believing in myself. I never thought in a million years I could change so much, so late in life. It’s been incredible to learn new things at my age. I know understand my worth and my sessions have been worth every penny!”
