"In my line of work I was being asked to give oral presentations. I felt that I was being held back professionally because of my fear and increasing anxiety around public speaking. Since working on this with Janie I have felt a huge shift and it is now no longer an issue for me."

WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?
CAN EVERYONE BE HYPNOTISED?
Most people find hypnosis highly pleasurable and often report wishing they could stay in the hypnotic state longer! Everyone has a slightly different experience but we all go into natural hypnotic states regularly, so you already know what it feels like for you. These natural hypnotic states occur just before you fall asleep at night or when you're doing something so routine or so engrossing that your conscious brain is able to switch off and filter out the outside world.
Yes. You are able to benefit from hypnosis even if you do not enter a deep trance. Some people experience feeling "far away" whereas others remain closer to the surface of consciousness, but this has no impact on the outcomes. It is common for people to think that they are too strong-minded to be hypnotised but hypnotic states are a completely normal part of life and can be induced in everyone.
DOES HYPNOSIS MEAN I LOSE CONTROL?
As your hypnotherapist, I will guide you but you are always the one in control, just as a navigator suggests the route but doesn't control the vehicle. If I suggest a path you dislike, you can avoid it. Hypnosis is never mind control.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is the vehicle by which the therapy is delivered. Using a hypnotic state enables change and progress to be made more quickly as you can bypass thought patterns and behaviours that keep people stuck.
WHAT IS STRATEGIC PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Strategic psychotherapy is also known as brief therapy. It's about listening to the use of language and analysing it to discover cognitive distortions and then addressing these while in a hypnotic state. I also use targeted questions that enable people to make discoveries and come to realisations. I help you harness your latent resources and build skills that enable you to overcome the challenges you're facing.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Generally three to six sessions per issue. Often people have been grappling with issues for a long time, so it can take more than one session to address. Many people report feeling such improvement after the first session that they don't think they need further sessions, but for the change to be long-lasting, it's important to spend the time. I need to ensure you are not only feeling better but doing better. Some people enjoy the sessions and the benefits so much that they choose to keep coming every so often as a form of self care like having a massage for the mind.
