Hypnotherapy Cambridge & Saffron Walden
Luke Henderson Hypnotherapist
I have been using hypnotherapy to help people for twenty years. Please take your time to read my website to find out if I am the right therapist for you. Over the years I have had training in hypno-analysis, Time-line NLP, Coherence Therapy and Life Span Integration. All these therapies are in fact trying to achieve the same process known as memory reconsolidation. Each of my clients is different so will get a therapy that is best suited to them.
Hypnotherapy is a term used to describe the therapies that take place whilst the client or patient is under hypnosis. Hypnosis is state of deep relaxation and is often described as a state of heightened focus. Hypnosis is a completely natural state to be in and my clients are incontrol of themselves at all times It is the subconscious that has the focus and is attuned for the well-being and protection of the person. Neuroscience research has shown that the state of Hypnosis is processed in a different part of the brain to straight forward suggestions or the placebo effect.
Can you be hypnotised?
Everyone I have ever had as a patient can be hypnotised. The hypnotic feeling is an individual experience. We all experience hypnosis in our own way. It is a pleasant state to be in and a natural state to be in.
Weight Loss with Hypnosis
Over the years I have seen more people with eating issues and weight problems than any other issue. My treatments depend upon the individual person. Men and women often need different approaches. My clients who work in the caring proffessions such as nurses and teachers need a different approach to lorry drivers and accountants. Some clients need treatments that removes childhood habits and guilts about needing to finish everthing on the plate. Others need help to stop stress eating. Whatever your eating issue is I am very likely to have helped people like you.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression
Many of my clients who come to see me for phobias or confidence are also suffering from anxiety and perhaps some depression. Some have been on medication for years whilst others have been doing their best to avoid medication. To help with anxiety I use suggesion hypnotherapy at first and then if necessary gentle psychotherpy under hypnosis. For my clients who are suffering from depression I will help them with memory reconsolidation.
Types of Hypnotherpy
Although it would appear that there are many different types of therapy under the term hypnotherapy there are really just two types. Suggestion Hypnotherapy which is often called Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy under hypnosis. My Public Speaking Help and my Stop Smoking sessions are types of Suggestion Hypnotherapy. The rapid Hypnotic Psychotherapy that I use has the descriptive name of Memory Reconsolidation.
This therapy gets to the heart of the problem. It is an evidence based rapid form of psychotherapy using free association and hypnotic regression. Subconscious learned behaviour can cause feelings that are no longer relevant to our present lives. Neuroscience has shown that it is possible to change these subconscious learned behaviours by finding the appropriate memories and contradicting them with the present day reality.
Whilst the patient is under hypnosis the hypnotherapist will give positive suggestions to the patient. These are carefully worded so that the subconscious will accept them as safe and good alternatives to any previously learned behaviour or habits.
