Peak Perfection

with Annette Boden
BSc(Hons) Psychology, MBPsS, Adv. Dip THP (N-SHAP). Member CRAH, HA, HCB. CNHC registered.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, where you are aware of what is going on around you, but you are in a deeply relaxed state – a trance, where mental stress and bodily tension are reduced.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the utilisation of the altered state of awareness to channel untapped resources of the unconscious mind to achieve change.

In a relaxed state, the mind is usually more open to the process of change.

Hypnotherapy does not impose behaviour with which a person would not normally agree, but it does support and reinforce changes, which have been consciously considered and decided to be desirable.

What is Advanced Hypnotherapy?

Advanced hypnotherapy is based on the work of the late Dr Milton H Erikson, the American psychiatrist and psychotherapist who pioneered modern hypnosis. It also includes the developed approaches of applied psychology, such as neurolinguistic programming.

It takes into account the special individual characteristics of each person, rather than trying to fit them into a rigidly defined system.

Note: hypnotherapy is not a substitute for orthodox medical care for people with medical problems. Patients who are undergoing medical treatment should remain in the care of their physicians whilst undergoing hypnotherapy.

If you have a physical problem, please consult your doctor first, in case medical attention is necessary.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is the treatment of psychological disorders by psychological methods. This may be by suggestion, persuasion, hypnosis, behavioural modification, non-directive encounter (counselling) or psychoanalysis.

What can hypnotherapy and psychotherapy help with?

Annette has special interests in life coaching, stress management, confidence and self-esteem building, anxiety, alcohol problems, insomnia, time management, motivation, and performance enhancement. The service can also be used for the treatment of phobias, weight management, smoking, obsessive compulsive disorder, and mild to moderate depression.
