How Counselling or Hypnotherapy Can Help

Sometimes the causes of our problems seem fairly clear and we know where to turn for assistance. At other times, our problems are difficult to understand and we find no answer from within ourselves or those close to us, in whom it may be hard to confide. Talking to a counsellor, who is impartial, can help people work through personal difficulties and find solutions to problems.

Counsellors are trained to listen and to help others explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental way. Counselling does not claim to be the answer to all human difficulties, but it can help people find their own answers and offer support. In this way counselling assists us to move towards more effective ways of coping, enabling us to have a greater control of our own lives.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to enable people to make changes within themselves. Its the application of a therapeutic trance like state whereby your busy conscious mind can relax and allow new positive messages to become a part of you.


They can offers a person, or a couple, a chance to explore the options at a critical time in their life; a time when the old ways of doing things seem not to work any more, or when a new situation appears, such as a marriage breakdown, a bereavement or redundancy. Hypnotherapy or Counselling provide a framework in which you yourself can make decisions and move forward through a better acceptance of your feelings and acknowledgment of your identity.

Do not expect direct advice. You may feel you would like to be told what to do, but this is not really part of counselling, because it is recognised that giving advice is not really a long-term solution. Whatever the outcome, if you have hypnotherapy or counselling, it is likely that you will gain a greater understanding and control of what is happening in your life at this time, an understanding you might not have gained otherwise.
