Community wellbeing therapies provided by Helping Hand
Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.
Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to try and treat conditions or change habits.
There are different types of hypnotherapy, and different ways of hypnotizing someone.
First, you’ll usually have a talk with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree what methods your therapist will use.
After this, the hypnotherapist may:
- lead you into a deeply relaxed state – most people feel refreshed and relaxed
- use your agreed methods to help you towards your goals – for example, suggesting that you do not want to carry out a certain habit
- gradually bring you out of the trance-like state. Most people feel refreshed and relaxed
You’re fully in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist’s suggestions if you do not want to. Hypnosis requires motivation from the client to work.
