Hi, I’m Duncan, a hypnotherapist with a professional diploma from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. I’m also a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is a collaboration between you and your unconscious mind to address an issue that concerns you. The hypnotherapist facilitates that collaboration and, importantly, teaches you how to do it yourself.
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation that allows you to communicate with your unconscious mind. It’s like sleep except that you are aware the whole time and you are in control – you cannot be made to do something you do not want to do. The unconscious manages the habits and thought patterns of your life and it can be encouraged to change them when any of those habits and patterns no longer serve you well.
My particular areas of interest are:
Insomnia harms your mental and physical health and may even shorten your life. It is a modern malaise and an industry of lotions, candles and recordings has grown up to try and solve it. All of that can help, but the problem may just be in your head, so that is where we go to try and help you with this affliction.
We like to believe that we have lived before and that we may live again. Whether or not it is so, past-life regression can provide you with an explanation of an issue you may have in this life, and may help you to resolve it. It may also give you an idea of your purpose in life.
New Year and birthday resolutions often have a short shelf-life, and personal development plans at work or in your home life may seem unattainable. Why not try harnessing your unconscious mind to map a path to achieving your personal resolutions or your SMART goals for work?
High performance relies on practice, practice, practice until your performance becomes unconscious, instinctive and effortless. Supporting that practice by proactively embedding it in your unconscious mind may make the difference you have been looking for. Think about how your golf might improve if you didn’t have to think about the swing and could just concentrate on where the ball is going.
I’m happy to talk through how the sessions work if you are at all apprehensive about experiencing hypnosis. You can call me on 07592-936863. There is a whole range of techniques we can use to address whatever may be preventing you from being your best you.
A suite of three sessions is generally recommended to help me understand your issues and your goals, to teach self-hypnosis as a life skill, to deliver therapy for the issue, and then to ensure that the therapy is embedded in your unconscious mind. However we can take it one session at a time and see how you feel.
Sessions are 55 minutes long and are priced at £80 per session.
Sessions may be booked with the Tower Clinic on 0113-267-2067 or by using the referral form via the Tower Clinic home page.
