In a recent blog post Matthew says, hypnotherapy is not a magic trick. Matthew says, hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that places suggestions in the subject’s mind to alter certain forms of behaviour. Suggestions might aim to change behaviour patterns or thoughts, planting the suggestion not to over eat, to avoid drugs or to stop smoking.
For clients that wish to develop themselves or their sports performance Matthew offers brief or solution focused hypnotherapy this kind of hypnotherapy involves the use of methods to help people achieve what they want in life. Matthew says, solution oriented hypnosis is particularly helpful with confidence and self-esteem problems. He says this type of treatment can often deliver change rapidly.
Matthew says, solution based therapy is now recognised as one of the most successful interventions (if necessary in conjunction with medication) for the treatment of Depression and Anxiety disorders (including) panic attacks, agoraphobia, etc. It is concerned with awakening abilities that appear beyond the subjects deliberate control.
Analytical hypnotherapy is combined with brief therapy techniques, this type of therapy aims deal with problems originating in the past. Analytical hypnotherapy aims to identify the cause of problems and then remove their harmful effects.
Hypnotherapy is a very complicated procedure and should be taken very seriously, it should be performed by a professional that is trained in the process. Matthew is an extremely experienced hypnotherpist, in 2006 he was Awarded “Outstanding Contribution to the Hypnotherapy Profession”. When he is not treating clients Matthew offers aspiring hypnotherapists training and supervision.
