What is Hypnotherapy?
Our experiences through life are recorded in our sub-conscious mind. Every experience is logged and filed just like in a filing cabinet within that part of our mind… thus remembering positive experiences and negative experiences. From all our experiences we create beliefs, habits, thoughts and feelings related to them, whether they are good ones or bad ones.
A Skilled Communication
Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination. It is a therapy that uses hypnosis, this involves inducing a heightened state of consciousness allowing connection to the sub-conscious part of the mind. A professional hypnotherapist can then use the power of positive suggestion via verbal communication to create positive changes to those perceptions, beliefs, habits, thoughts, behaviour and feelings in our lives, thus allowing wonderful changes to take place.
In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired. The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual. ‘Harmony Life Balance‘ is a non-script Hypnotherapy Centre personalising the therapy around each client, giving treatment the personal touch. Many clients have commented on the power of using these techniques which were used by Milton H. Erickson widely regarded as the ‘father of hypnotherapy’.
Is Hypnotherapy helpful??
Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal. It is often used to help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, help to address bedwetting, address attitudes to weight, and help clients achieve behavioural change to stop smoking. It may also help with minor skin conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking. Hypnotherapy may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain.
Both Adults and Children
Hypnotherapy has also been used with both adults and children to help manage the pain associated with irritable bowel. There is evidence to support its use in this condition for both adults and children and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to respond to simple prescribed medicine. Hypnotherapy can help both adults and children in many ways. ‘Harmony Life balance’ has worked with Children regarding examination nerves, anxiety, fear, driving tests and more, allowing them to create positive change in their lives to move forward with situations they once found difficult.

Personal Change Towards Excellence
“Thanks to Michelle’s expertise I was able to shift some old financial patterns that were holding me back. Through a number of techniques she helped me release the old patterns and installed new beliefs that I’d written down prior to our session. Michelle also helped prompt new ideas that I hadn’t considered which also made a huge difference.
After just one session my focus had shifted and I started ‘noticing’ that I was making excellent decisions in my business. Making ‘good decisions’ about money was one of the beliefs we installed during our sessions. I’d highly recommend Michelle to anyone wishing to create change in any area of their life, she is truly amazing”
