We all have two minds; the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy taps into the subconscious mind through an altered state of awareness, opening possibilities and capturing your imagination. It can impact perceptions, symptoms and habits, and can alleviate suffering. Hypnotherapy empowers individuals to be the boss of their own body and mind.
Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for many of life’s challenges. Neural Switch can help you increase hope, self-confidence, and resilience; as well as reduce pain and anxiety, change habits and reduce stress.

FAQ’s about Neural Switch Hypnotherapy
Neural Switch is happy to provide service from age 12 and up.
No. Stage hypnotism is not the same as clinical/ medical hypnosis. The goals of stage and clinical/ medical hypnosis are very different. While stage is for entertainment purposes, clinical/ medical hypnosis has an agreed goal to help you learn to use your natural hypnotic abilities to feel better. The client has complete control throughout the session and can stop at any time they would like to and you will only respond to suggestions that are in line with your belief system and that you think will be the most helpful to you; you will be free to simply ignore the rest.
No. The same brain waves seen during sleep are not seen during hypnosis. The brain waves that are seen during hypnosis are the same as when someone is very relaxed and focused but are still awake. It is a state of focused attention where you can get more and better control of your thoughts and sensations.
No. You may experience something like you do when you are deeply absorbed in a hobby or a relaxing activity. Most find the hypnotic state to be pleasant and do remember most if not all of the session. Some people may be concerned that they did not feel hypnotised during the session as a natural relaxed state may be familiar to them. If you are able to feel even a little relaxed during the session and able to focus your attention on the clinician’s voice, or focus on your own inner experience, then you will be hypnotised enough to gain benefit.
No. You do not need to work at listening to everything that is said during the session. You may find you drift in and out of being aware of the clinician’s voice, you will still gain benefit from the session if this happens.
Individual responses are varied. Some see immediate benefits, others may take longer. Evidence shows that listening to the recordings or doing relaxation after the sessions provides greater longer lasting benefits.
This depends on the individual. For particular conditions such as disorders of the gut-brain interaction like irritable bowel syndrome, evidence shows six sessions are needed and four sessions for chronic pain, is most beneficial. The sessions are individually tailored and the need for further sessions will be discussed on an individual basis.
Individuals with severe active depression or certain mental illness should not embark on hypnotherapy treatment.
