How can “Integrated Mind Therapy” help me?
Integrated Mind therapy is the treatment of emotional and psychological disorders, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings, using a combination of Clinical & Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Personal Coaching and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness. Therapy also tends to help clients become more accepting both of themselves and others and thereby promotes personal development and unlocks inner potential. The ultimate aim is to stimulate the innate healing capacity and wisdom within each individual to help clients tap into their own inner resources to lead a better life. Each session is tailored to the individual’s own needs and will use a combination of techniques to achieve the best possible results in the shortest possible time.
How many sessions will I need?
That depends on the individual and what it is you wish to change. Integrated mind therapy uses hypnotherapy which helps people quickly, so that even deep rooted behavioural problems can take just a few sessions to resolve but a full consultation would be needed to find out more information on a case by case basis. Generally though issues can often be resolved in three sessions to six sessions.
What Happens During A typical Session?
We will have an initial relaxed FREE consultation on the phone to both assess whether we might like to work together. I might then also send you a questionnaire relevant to your case for you to complete to assist me in creating a treatment plan tailored especially for you. On your first visit I will explain how the therapy works and answer any questions you may have. We will then discuss your goals or issues and I will use a range of solution focused counselling skills to gain a fuller understanding of the issues at hand. If appropriate, in the second half of your session I might then use hypnotherapy to work with your subconscious and take you into a deeper state of relaxation. During hypnosis I use various techniques to clarify the underlying cause of your problem and help you resolve the issue. To complete the session I will review the session with you and agree with you the best way to proceed.
Can It Help Medical Conditions?
Yes it can. There are any number of different ailments and conditions which can be treated using integrated mind therapy, ranging from migraines and irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety disorders and pain relief. The therapy can also help promote relaxation to help recovering cancer patients. The practice would always recommend that therapy should be taken alongside conventional medical support though not as an alternative and will always refer clients when appropriate.
Can you Guarantee Me A Cure?
Nothing in life is guaranteed and it would not be professional of any therapist to offer one. However, you can be assured that I can promise to bring all my skills, knowledge, experience and on-going training to help you find lasting relief with your problem. If I don’t think I can help with your issue, I would be happy to make a referral.
