Natural Therapies

The philosophy behind natural therapies like hypnotherapy is that our own natural healing abilities should be helped and encouraged to enable us to throw off any illness, disease or other problem, rather than suppressing them with drugs or attacking them by invasive therapies as a matter of course.

At some time in our lives, we are all likely to need therapeutic help. In some areas, the standard medical help could not be bettered, particularly with physical injuries. However, there is a growing concern about such things as the little time many medical practitioners can spend with individual patients and the apparent obsession in some areas with the use of drugs. Some prescribed drugs are highly addictive. Many have unfortunate side effects. You may be unhappy at the idea of continually taking drugs to suppress symptoms instead of dealing with the underlying problems once and for all.

These very real concerns, together with the need to be treated as an individual, and the wish to take a more active role in their recovery and ongoing good health, mean more and more people are looking for an effective alternative, like hypnotherapy.

Natural therapies are being used to replace or complement and support other treatments so recovery can be quicker and more complete. Natural therapies take a more individual and holistic (whole person) approach. Natural therapies work with our own natural healing processes to produce a lasting result. This means they can be used to sort out all aspects of the problem and this leads to much more complete solutions, clearing any underlying problems as well as the symptoms. Hypnotherapy is a particularly effective way to do this.

Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis - the truth

In hypnotherapy, most people are usually wide awake and therefore aware of being in total control of the situation. During hypnotherapy, a subject will often lend control to the hypnotherapist, but it can be taken back at any time: a good therapist will make no secret of this. Contrast this with a stage hypnotist who tries to persuade people of the opposite.

There are many strange ideas about hypnosis, some of which lean towards the realms of myth and magic. Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation which was misleadingly named: “hypno-sis” implies being fast asleep which is usually not so.

The hypnotic levels of consciousness cover a range of awareness states about halfway between full alertness and sleep. So it's a perfectly natural state through which you pass twice every day: when going to sleep and when waking up.

Over the years we have helped many people with different problems. We are used to being a "last resort" when other approaches have failed.

Whatever gets in your way hypnotherapy can help. Susan Gale of the Beltain Consultancy in Dorchester, works co-operatively with the subconscious mind to help you break bad habits, gain confidence and also develop a much more positive attitude. She has many ways to help you succeed, even if previously you have failed.
