At the Hampshire Hypnotherapy & Counselling Centre, we offer a range of highly effective therapy. These therapies are:

  • Suggestion Therapy (Also Known as Clinical Hypnotherapy)
  • Analytical Hypnotherapy (Otherwise known as Analysis Or Pure Hypnoanalysis)
  • Changing Limiting Beliefs (Otherwise known as CLB – This is a training course and usually doesn’t require any hypnotherapy)
  • Counselling 
  • Mindfulness
  • Psychotherapy

Before we cover these therapies in detail let us first look at hypnosis:

So, what is hypnosis?

One of the questions often asked by clients when they come to see us for the first time is “What is hypnotherapy and how does it work?”

Hypnotherapy combines hypnosis with either suggestion or analytical techniques to help resolve any emotional issues that may be having a negative effect on your life in some way.

The word ‘hypnosis’ is the Greek word for ‘sleep’.  This may worry some people, as they feel concerned that they may be asleep or out of control in some way during their hypnotherapy session. Some people believe that they will ‘go under’ or that their mind will be under the control of the therapist. Nothing could be further from the truth.

There is no such thing as a hypnotised feeling! There is, however, a wonderful feeling of calmness and relaxation. This pleasant state is very similar to the feeling you have when you lose yourself in a book or a daydream.

Once in a state of relaxation, the subconscious mind is open and very receptive to positive suggestions in the case of suggestion therapy.  For those clients requiring hypnoanalysis to resolve their issues, the relaxed state of hypnosis enables them to work with us to discover and resolve the cause of their problem and their symptoms improve as a result.

Suggestion therapy (Clinical hypnotherapy)

This type of therapy is probably the type of hypnotherapy that most people think of when they are thinking about hypnotherapy to help with their problems. This type of therapy is really effective in helping people to lose a bit of weight, stop smoking, pass driving tests or exams or manage pain relief. It can also help with social anxiety, depression as well as fears and phobias.

Suggestion therapy uses a light relaxing state of hypnosis, where positive suggestions and visualisations are used to help you to achieve their goals. The type of therapy is fast and effective. Every 15 minutes of hypnosis is equivalent to approximately 2 hours of sleep, and most people report that they find the sessions extremely relaxing as we as highly effective in resolving their issue.

We would recommend Pure Hypnoanalysis in most cases of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, fears, phobias and all other emotional and psychological problems.
Pure Hypnoanalysis is a form of gentle psychotherapy, and is the most effective therapy in the world today for completely resolving the Cause of your unwanted symptoms for good!

Pure Hypnoanalysis (or analytical hypnotherapy as it is sometimes called) is a highly specialised form of hypnotherapy which is only practised by therapists who have undergone a full training course and continuing professional development training.

Pure Hypnoanalysis as practised at the Hampshire Hypnotherapy Centre in Southampton and  Fareham, is the gentlest, most effective form of hypnotherapy for the resolution of fears, phobias, anxiety, stress, depression, sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem, addictions and many other symptoms. Please click here to see a list of the symptoms we can treat.

Pure Hypnoanalysis is the one therapy that allows any person who has an emotional or psychological symptom to bring the emotions to the surface and resolve them completely. As a result, our clients are able to resolve the unconscious cause of their symptoms. Any ‘bottled up emotion’ is then released and the client becomes free of the symptoms that were having such a negative effect on their life.

As members of this professional organisation, our therapists are highly trained specialists in Pure Hypnoanalysis and are able to offer a safe, effective therapy which usually takes around 8-12 weekly sessions lasting approximately an hour each time.
