“It all begins and ends with your mind. What you give power to, has power over you.”

Leon Brown

How hypnotherapy works

Our mind has two parts – a “Conscious” and “Subconscious”.

The conscious mind is the smaller part – rational, critical, analytical and objective, always in a state of awareness. The greater subconscious mind controls our decision-making process based on our upbringing, education, beliefs, emotions, experience, thoughts and feelings. All these together work to decide whether we do something, avoid something, fear something or enjoy something.

The subconscious mind is like a powerful computer – storing all the information we have seen, heard, tasted, smelt and touched. Our emotions, feelings, instincts, and habits, are anchored here. It also stores our fears, phobias, bad habits and limiting beliefs. This is why some people struggle to make and sustain changes that they really want to make, for example eating too much of the wrong foods….Simply put, their conscious logical mind knows that its bad for them, however, their subconscious mind makes the decision whether they will or won’t eat too much of the wrong food.

Hypnotherapy works on helping you change those subconscious limiting beliefs, fears and phobias as the subconscious mind can be altered by changing your thought patterns, like re-programming a computer and getting it to work how you want it to.

During a typical hypnotherapy session, you are guided to achieve a deepened state of relaxation (also known as trance) using skilled and effective relaxation techniques. This is known as Hypnosis. When you are in this relaxed state the subconscious mind becomes very aware and receptive to new perspectives, ideas, and positive suggestions. So, the subconscious mind can be changed, over a period of time and practice, to feel how you want to feel or to dispel any negative limiting beliefs.

Hypnosis is natural and perfectly safe. It is a state of altered awareness characterised by a feeling of relaxation and ‘letting go’. We all drift in and out of different levels of awareness many times each day. A good example is if you have ever driven from one place to another and can’t recall parts of the journey, or if you have read a book and become so absorbed in it that you have lost track of time and been unaware of your surroundings. You are always in control during hypnosis and you can break a state of trance at any time. You will only manage a state of trance if you want to be hypnotised (it is not magic).

Our well-being can fall foul of stress, worry, and anxiety. Learning to control these obstacles and barriers leads to a much happier and healthy lifestyle.

We can’t always control situations but we can control how we choose to view them. Taking control of our thoughts and the way we think can have a huge positive effect on our lives.  Our minds are the strongest part of our whole being.

Lee uses hypnotherapy to help you change your subconscious limiting beliefs, fears and phobias.  It is like reprogramming a computer and getting it to work how you want it to.  Hypnotherapy is particularly useful to manage stress as well as weight management – helping you to naturally make better choices.

Lee offers a free telephone consultation initially, and if the client and Lee agree to working together then an Initial consultation can be made.

Initial Consultation (1hr) – £80.

Subsequent Sessions – £70 per session.

Your first session

During your first session, you will be required to fill out a client screening health questionnaire. It is important that Lee establishes as much as he can about you so that Lee can give you the best possible treatment plan. Lee will discuss your lifestyle and your current way of thinking with you before Lee introduces you slowly to hypnosis by means of a light state of trance, so as on your next visit you will feel more relaxed and therefore more receptive to Hypnotherapy.
