Welcome to Hypnotherapy  – Julie-Marie Lloyd (Dip Hyp) 
I am a professionally qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist (Dip Hyp)
I have extensive knowledge and experience within holistic field of medicine (I am a qualified Clinical Counsellor/Psychotherapist (Dip CP)/Reflexologist (AOR) /Reiki Practitioner). I have previously worked in NHS and Private healthcare. 
What is Hypnotherapy ?
Hypnotherapy by definition is a way to deeply relax a person into a trance like state to facilitate healing or change.
Through various techniques the Hypnotherapist can take you from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind.
It allows us to communicate directly with the subconscious mind. It is a state of relaxation which we can naturally go in and out of all day long to varying degrees.
The Hypnotherapist cannot control your mind but can help with something you want to change or do by putting suggestions into the subconscious mind whilst under hypnosis. They cannot change your morals, values or beliefs and make you do something against these. You will not lose your memory and it is not possible to get stuck in the hypnotic state.
What is the subconscious ?

The mind is divided into the conscious and subconscious (the subconscious being 10/11 of the total mind) The conscious downloads everything into the subconscious mind where all our memories, habits and everything we have ever learnt is stored. The subconscious governs the autonomic nervous system which allows us to breath and pumps blood around the body and also stores habits e.g. brushing teeth, walking.

Mark Twain is famous for confiding to the world that he never worked in his life and his great writings were his ability to tap into his subconscious!

What happens during a treatment ?

Hypnotherapy is a very individual experience and whilst some people go deep into the trance state some people don’t feel any different whilst under hypnosis.
During the first hypnotherapy session there is a longer consultation (1 1/2 hrs) on the presenting issues. The following sessions normally lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hour.  The length of the course varies according to individual needs and presenting issues and this will be discussed at the first session.
