How Can Hypnosis and Counselling Help You?
Counselling is an effective treatment for conditions such as depression, anxiety, self confidence, selfesteem. It helps people deal with bereavement or loss, being involved in a traumatic event, stress, either work related or in personal life. It can help with low motivation, self doubt and many emotional conditions that impact on an individuals health and wellbeing. The goal of the therapy is agreed between client and the therapist, a therapeutic strategy is agreed. The client will be free to speak with the therapist, they are able to explore their presenting issues in a safe, emphatic and supportive environment. The therapist will provide a safe space and will not judge the client.
The below testimonial was sent to us by client Miss B. This lady suffered from severe depression and SAD. She was kind enough to send us the following after her sessions with John Hobbs, our Hypnotherapist.
“Sixteen years ago I ended up in a psychiatric hospital and was diagnosed with Clinical Depression as a result of very extreme Seasonal Affective Disorder. I take medication but have always been open to try any other therapy which may help.
At my initial session he spent a long time gathering information from me and gave me a ‘taster’ of what it was like to be hypnotised. He was able to give me tools and strategies to better cope with it and to stop it controlling me, which is how I felt about it.
During the time I was seeing John I did become ill and felt the walls closing in on me. Our sessions were usually three or four weeks apart but he saw me at short notice one day when I felt desperate. This session was amazing and gave my brain a rest from the continual black thoughts and emotions of depression. As well as the hypnotherapy John is also a counsellor so my sessions always included an element of practical guidance too. I recovered from this episode of depression much more quickly than previous episodes. I also managed to keep going to work whilst it occurred and to be honest about it with my peers and colleagues.
I have no doubt this was all down to the hypnotherapy and would recommend John to anyone. Hypnotherapy was a revelation to me and a constructive process to deal with my illness.”
We have also had the following testimonial from Mr E, he had suffered from IBS for many years.
“After being diagnosed with IBS by the NHS, given a photocopied hand out and told to pretty much get on with it, I lived with the symptoms of IBS for many years. There seem to be many different problems associated with IBS but in my particular case I was left with needing the toilet and not given much notice by my own body. This very quickly lead to panicking about when and where I could find another wc. The panicking and anxiety would only make my symptoms worse, creating a vicious, vicious circle that eventually was keeping me prisoner in my own home. It has now been four weeks since I last saw John Hypnotherapist at Addlestone Therapy, and I have to say I’m a different person. I am now able to get on with my life. I still have the medical side of my problem to deal with, but that is now much easier without the panic making things worse.
I am becoming more confident everyday, and with the use of the tools that John gave me, I am able to relax when I need to, sleep better at night, and carry out my daily duties without stress.
Thank you John…. (for helping me get my life back).”
