Does hypnosis & NLP work?
Hypnosis and NLP can work quickly and effectively. This is because habits and behaviours are, in the main unconscious. Therefore, by using tools that work with your unconscious mind, change is possible to occur*.
How long does it take?
Everyone is an individual and some treatments are much faster than others because of the nature of the session. Some clients need to be seen for just one session and some slightly longer*. We will always be clear with you about how quickly we can work with you. One thing we are very clear about is that all of our sessions are goal orientated.
Is it safe?
Hypnotherapy and NLP is very safe. In fact most people find it an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable experience. Furthermore, our therapists have collectively had thousands of hours training, which is far greater than the average hypnotherapist has completed.
The team is also fully insured, and are members of the leading industry bodies.
We will answer any question you have both before and during your appointment to reassure you.
In short, you are in very safe hands.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis involves you being placed into a light, medium or deep trance state allowing us to work with your unconscious mind.
Being in a trance is very relaxing. It is a bit like when you are watching your favourite film or TV programme in that you are become totally focused on that one thing. In this case though, the focus is on relaxing
With hypnosis your focus becomes focused on being very relaxed both mentally and physically.
You will be able to hear everything that is said when you are in trance.
Being in a hypnotic trance means that we can work communicate directly with your unconscious / sub-conscious mind. This is where memories and motivations are stored are located along with your ability to learn.
By communicating directly with your unconscious mind, it’s possible achieve the goals you set out at the beginning of the session and resolve any underlying issues you may have had.
What is NLP?
NLP is short for Neuro Linguistic Programming. It was originally developed in the 1970’s by Dr’s John Grinder & Richard Bandler. NLP modeled the most effective forms of therapy and re-purposed them in a new form, called NLP.
NLP can work conversationally and quickly.
Famous practitioners of NLP include the likes of Tony Robbins and Paul McKenna.
Our co-founder David Shephard sits on two of the three global bodies of NLP. He is President of the ABNLP and on the advisory committee of the ANLP.
What should I expect?
You should expect us to be warm, kind and focused on you in our very comfortable treatment room. Each session lasts two hours. Our aim is for you to have an effective time whilst visiting us.*
In order for you to get the best result out of the session, our sessions follow a simple process:
Before the session
We will ask you to complete both a pre-session questionnaire and if relevant a log before the session. This helps us understand a lot more about what’s going and helps us tailor the session in advance of seeing you. For example it helps us understand any pattern of behaviour, your thoughts, beliefs etc.
During the session
Firstly, we establish your goal in great depth.
Secondly, we’ll uncover what you need to do more of, or less or completely learn to help you achieve your goals. This will involve being asked a lot of questions to help us understand. We’re sure you’ll have a few too and you can ask these at any time.
Fourth – we will give you some tools and techniques that you can do by yourself at home
Fifth – please be aware that whilst we give you 100% effort and skill, we can’t guarantee a success. In fact, we suggest running a mile from therapists offering such guarantees.
Who are the therapists?
Fix My Mind is owned by two people, David Shephard and James Mallinson.
David has been a full time professional therapist since 1993 and has worked with thousands of people in that time. So effective is he as a therapist, that the Daily Mail recently put him to the test, to which he of course passed with flying colours. See feature here.
He also owns a training company of hypnosis and NLP, called The Performance Partnership. David has trained a huge amount of therapists and is President of the ABNLP, and a member of the advisory body of the ANLP.
As well as training and working with people therapeutically, David also works with the Army charity, The Warrior Programme to help current and serviceman cope with their PTSD
James has been a qualified clinical hypnotherapist since 2008 and has trained for over 800 hours in a number of different areas. James was trained by the world leading hypnotherapy body, the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. He then extended his training with David’s company and a bond was formed, when they realised the potential of creating a successful therapy business.
Before becoming a therapist, James worked in media and was the Publisher of a number of leading magazines. As a result, he has a real understanding of the pressures of modern day corporate life.
After having a life-changing experience with hypnotherapy in 2007, James created the concept of Fix My Mind with David in December 2011.
