What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy, hypnosis and it's previous variants have been used since ancient times to provide a safe and drug free method of creating desired changes quickly. It is completely natural and there are no unpleasant or unwanted side effects. A hypnotic state allows your subconscious mind to absorb new, acceptable, beneficial suggestions that common sense and critical thinking would usually reject. This hypnotic state is completely natural and if you have ever daydreamed, cried when watching a weepy movie on the TV or thought "how on earth did I get here?" whilst driving then you have been in a natural hypnotic state at a light level. Formal Hypnotherapy is at a much deeper level and a skilled, professional hypnotherapist like Dave Sabat helps you, using hypnotherapy, to bring about the changes that you want.
Why choose Clinical Hypnotherapy?
Clinical Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to treat medical or psychological problems and recognises the massive mind-body connection. Everybody would agree that stress can have a negative impact on health and well-being therefore if we are happy with ourselves mentally we are more likely to be better physically. Clinical Hypnosis could also help reduce or get rid of unwanted, unhelpful thoughts, which create our feelings and emotions, to bring about a more postive and happier state of mind. Good Clinical Hypnotherapy is a rapid & brief technique.
Can I be hypnotised against my will?
There is no power on earth that can stop you being hypnotised except yourself. In other words, if you don't want to be formally hypnotised, you won't be. However, by allowing yourself to be guided into an enjoyable state where positive and desired changes can be made, you could allow yourself to be free of old unwanted habits, thoughts or feelings very quickly. In a state of hypnosis, no-one will do anything that goes against any strongly held moral, spiritual, religious or ethical belief.
A-ha, why then do people cluck like chickens at a stage show?
Because they want to. Anyone who appears on stage volunteers to do so, effectively giving the "hypnotist" permission to hypnotise them, and they are never asked to do anything that would go against any strongly held belief. Any volunteer knows that they may be "made" to cluck like a chicken, sing like Elvis or pretend that they have won the lottery even before they set foot on stage and of course they have the perfect get out of jail free card, "he made me do it!" No-one is "made" to do anything; the volunteer allows it and finds it acceptable to do, simply by volunteering. If anyone disagrees with this, please find a stage hypnotist, including Paul McKenna, who would be willing to make a sportsman's bet that he could "make" Dave run down Oxford Street with his boxer shorts on his head shouting "look at me, I'm from Mars!" Don't expect any takers.
Can I be made to say or do anything I don't want to do?
No. In a state of hypnosis, no-one will do anything that goes against any strongly held moral, spiritual, religious or ethical belief. You will not do anything under hypnosis that you would morally or ethically object to if you weren't under hypnosis. You are always in control. The best example of this is that Dave is still working from his office in Watford as opposed to lying on a beach somewhere because he hypnotised a crack team of SAS soldiers to smuggle him in to Bill Gate's house where he hypnotised Mr. Gates in to paying him $40 million for his incredible hypnotic skills and was promptly paid!!!! Quite simply, you will not do anything that goes against any strongly held moral, spiritual, religious or ethical belief and this is why your own motivation to succeed is so important.
What is Conversational Hypnosis?
Conversational Hypnosis is simply conversation. You may have seen some of the nonsense spouted about how "you can control people and make them do whatever you want them to do" with conversational hypnosis, underground hypnosis or NLP. It's nonsense. It's only persuasion, manipulation and influence techniques that have been around since the dawn of mankind and have simply been repackaged and rebranded. Advertisers and sales organisations have been using these influence techniques for years but we don't all eat the same brand of chocolate bar, use only one brand of washing powder or drive the same type of car.
What is Formal Hypnotherapy?
Simple. Sit down, close your eyes, let's go.
Is everything I say confidential?
Yes, an ethical, professional and confidential service is guaranteed at all times.
How many sessions will I need?
Helping someone overcome their nail biting habit is completely different from helping someone overcome a near-death experience which has kept them housebound for the last ten years. The aim is always to get you back in control of your own thoughts and feelings as quickly as possible using the minimum number of sessions, whatever you want to achieve. Many changes are made in just one session while it is very rare for any form of problem or issue to require more than five essential sessions. You will be given as accurate a guide as possible either during the initial phone call or during your first session.
How long does a session last?
One hour, one and a half hours or two hours, always agreed in advance.
How do I pay?
Payment is usually on a "per session" basis and can be made on the day by cash. Once an appointment has been confirmed, credit card payments can be made online at least 24 hours before the appointment, via Paypal.
What if I need to cancel an appointment?
Please be sure to phone at least 48 hours in advance in the unlikely event that you need to reschedule your appointment. Failure to do so wastes the appointment time and will result in a 100% cancellation charge.
