Hypnotherapy in Crawley

Hypnosis is a  state of mind and can be a positive tool to help you achieve positive changes to your psychological, emotional or physical nature. Many people describe hypnosis as a trance-like state, which resembles sleep, so many people feel relaxed at the end of their session. You are in control at all times and even though you are in a trance-like state, you can hear and respond to questions or suggestions accordingly. It can enhance concentration and increased responsiveness to suggestions that can lead to alterations in thought patterns and psychological states, leading to reducing stress and anxiety, changing unwanted beliefs and behaviours and overcoming other problems.

All Belinda’s hypnotherapy sessions are individually designed and in a calm setting, which is confidential. Working together, we can create a plan that helps you overcome your issues and develop the right mindset to give you increased motivation to achieve the goals you may wish to make.

Other therapies in Crawley

Belinda also uses Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and EmoTrance. EFT is a form of energy psychology or counselling intervention, often referred to as psychological acupressure, because it is based on the same energy meridians as those used in traditional acupuncture. Instead of using needles, the practise uses the tapping of fingertips on the end points of energy meridians close to the surface of the skin. The idea is to send kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst a client is focusing on a past event, addiction or pain problem helps to release negative emotions, facilitating a straightening out of their energy system.

EmoTrance is also based on the concept of energy healing. The client focuses their thought process and where they feel this energy disruption in their body – indicating where negative energy may be ‘stuck’- and then through this process it allows the energy to eventually soften and flow through and out of the body.

EFT and EmoTrance can help with:

  • Emotional issues surrounding relationships, including jealousy, hurt feelings and feelings of abandonment, being trapped or feeling desperate
  • Physical pains and ailments, including issues around headaches and migraines, allergies, psoriasis and hayfever
  • Phobias, such a being afraid of heights or spiders
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Additions to smoking, food, alcohol, work or exercise
  • Continual self-harm or obsessive behaviour disorder
