About Ifield Therapy
Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Hypnotherapist
Prior to the psychotherapy practice, which I started 5 years ago, I spent over 20 years in business taking on various roles: from managerial to secretarial and in between. During that time, I learnt to listen, give space, grow my self-awareness, tune in, understand and propose rather than impose. I witnessed and experienced the effects of stress, anxiety, body pain, lack of sleep. I learnt to deal with the pain of loss, helplessness, regret, rejection, shame, sense of emptiness and disappointment. And I also learnt that the only choice we don't have is not to choose.

The purpose of hypnotherapy, different from hypnosis used in entertainment, is to understand and change the root causes of the automatic, unconscious behaviour and thinking. Some people relax more quickly and deeply than others, but this is not an important factor for hypnotherapy. When we daydream, worry, or are unaware of our surroundings, we tend to say we're 'in our head' or 'miles away'. In fact, we are in a hypnotic state, self-hypnotised. And we do this, or this happens, many times a day.
In hypnotherapy, we can intentionally 'be in our head' i.e. not in the present moment but more interested and curious about our experiences in the past. The hypnotic experience can only happen if we choose and are willing to explore, understand and focus on what we want.
Hypnotherapy does not happen to you - you are choosing to experience it at will. And there is no risk of 'not coming back'. You are in control all the time during the hypnotherapy session. You are also able to remember what you have learned and experienced in hypnotherapy and no longer feel helpless or uncomfortable.
Hypnotherapy provides with an access to some personal revelations as we can look at past experiences, examine them objectively and see what they meant to us at the time.
With a sense of peace and freed-up energy we can change our reality.
