What is Hypno-Analysis?

Over 2,400 years ago, the Greek philosopher Socrates exclaimed: “An unexamined life is not worth living.” Hypno-analysis is simply analysis under light hypnosis and it is considered to be highly effective because it often works more quickly than standard psychotherapy.

Are you curious about how your mind works?  This is an opportunity to understand why you think, feel and behave the way you do, with someone who genuinely listens.  If you are ready to change and are open to change, you can create powerful alternatives to the way you are currently experiencing life.  All kinds of emotions come up during therapy and that’s good because something that has been repressed may be seeing the light of day for the first time.  You may have breakthroughs during the session or between sessions or even some time later, as the change is evolving in its own time.  

If the quality of your life is not what you want it to be, psychotherapy may help because it allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and non-judgemental in a supporting environment. We work in partnership to identify and change the thought and behavioural patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.  In this way, you will have learned new skills to help you cope more effectively with whatever challenges arise in the future.

Who looks for hypno-analysis?

Ordinary people who have been feeling depressed, anxious or stressed for a long time and wish to find a quicker way of addressing their issues.  Those who are looking to find ways of coping with chronic illness that is interfering with their emotional or physical well-being. Still others who may be going through a bereavement, divorce, facing an empty nest, feeling overwhelmed by a new job or going through a personal crisis.  Signs that you could benefit from therapy include:

  • You feel an overwhelming, prolonged sense of helplessness and sadness.
  • Your problems don’t seem to get better despite your efforts and help from family and friends.
  • You find it difficult to concentrate on work assignments or to carry out other everyday activities.
  • You worry excessively, expect the worst or are constantly on edge.
  • Your actions, such as drinking too much alcohol, using drugs or being aggressive, are harming you or others.
  • You have been through a traumatic event and are getting flashbacks, feeling anxious and irritable.  These are common symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
