What is Transpersonal Hypnotherapy?

Transpersonal hypnotherapy accesses the power of your awareness to live a more harmonious life.

How does transpersonal hypnotherapy work?
You will be guided into a state of deep physical and mental relaxation which reduces any stress or tension. In this relaxed state you are more open to your experiencing and to deep self-acceptance and transformation.

While in hypnosis you will still be aware of your surroundings and you can choose to come out of hypnosis at any time. You will be able to speak and move and will be in control of what is happening to you. At the end of the session you will be gently returned to a normal waking state.

Awareness and Self-Acceptance
Transpersonal hypnotherapy is a gentle process of getting to know yourself at a deep level. In a state of relaxation you will be guided by your own inner wisdom to become more aware of what you are carrying from the past and what you wish to let go of. This may be unhelpful habits habits and phobias. These occur because of difficult experiences we have not been able to come to terms with. When we feel bad we will often reach for food or cigarettes or alcohol, or we carry out repetitive rituals. We may also avoid the situation that bothers us to such an extent that we can develop a phobia (a fear of water or of flying for instance). However we may not remember the initial sensitising event - the event that triggered the difficult feelings underlying the habit or phobiav- and may not know what exactly is making us anxious, afraid or perhaps angry. We may not even realise how we feel because eating, drinking and activity can help suppress the feelings.

Creating better outcomes
Hypnosis helps you go back to the initial event that caused the unwanted behaviour so that your mind, and in some instances your body, can heal. Hypnosis can desensitise you around the triggering event so it no longer affects you. Rossi (1996) suggests that the profound changes that can come about during hypnosis may lead to positive long term changes in brain chemistry.

Developing your inner guidance
Transpersonal hypnotherapy in particular gives you the opportunity to pay attention to your inner wisdom and develop a strong inner guidance system so that you know what you want and are open to intuitive insights about how to achieve it. This process is akin to Gendlin's "Focusing" and allows your own process of self-actualisation to guide you into fuller experiencing and a richer life.

Achieving your potential
Hypnosis can also improve learning, concentration, presentation skills and enhance your creativity. It is not just about overcoming problems but also about becoming all you can be so you can feel fully alive and reach your full potential.
