Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a type of complementary therapy or treatment that uses hypnosis, which is a deeply relaxed state and an altered state of consciousness. Hypnosis is widely promoted as a treatment for various long-term conditions and for breaking certain habits.

Hypnotherapy is defined by the British Medical Association as a complementary therapy or treatment, which is scientifically proven to be highly successful in treating a full range of symptoms, issues, phobias, addictions, illnesses, and disease. Hypnotherapy is now recommended as a treatment by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy used to create subconscious change in a patient in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors, or feelings. It is undertaken with a subject in hypnosis. You are fully in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you do not want to.

If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state at anytime. According to Cancer Research UK, most cancer patients say they have had a positive experience with hypnotherapy.

Benefits of hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can simply be used to gain greater personal freedom and joy. Be happy for simply no reason. It can be used to help you make changes in your life. It can also be used to successfully treat stress, anxiety, panic attacks, fears, phobias, weight loss, smoking cessation, habits and addictions (drugs, alcohol, or gambling), anger issues, trauma or PTSD, OCD, relationship and sexual issues, ADHD, IBS, and ME or chronic fatigue syndrome.

It can also treat exam or interview nerves, public speaking nerves, sleep disorders, insomnia, high and low blood pressure, arthritis and rheumatism, pain management, recovery from surgery, cancer, ageing issues, mobility issues, dependency issues, children's issues, child birth or hypno birthing, parenting issues, career and school issues, corporate and business enhancement, life enhancement, loss or separation, grief, and life changes (such as divorce or new job).

What you will expect during a hypnotherapy session

Hypnotherapy is a safe, effective, and deeply relaxing therapy that can bring about positive change in an individual’s behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. The treatment is carried out using hypnosis in order to relax the individual into an altered state. You will all naturally drift in and out of altered states every day.

Have you ever driven your car to a destination without being able to recall the actual journey? This is a good example of a trance-like state where your conscious mind drifts off allowing the unconscious part of the mind to take over, and it is the reason why you never forget how to ride a bike too. It is your subconscious doing the work for you! You are still aware and can come back to consciousness at any time you choose. This is the same as the altered state achieved in hypnotherapy.

During a session, you will feel completely relaxed and comfortable. Although you are in a very relaxed state, you will hear and be aware of everything that is taking place. You will be in full control and can stop the session at any time. You will find that being hypnotized is an extremely relaxing and pleasurable experience.

Your conscious mind accounts for only 10 percent of your entire mind. The other 90 percent of your mind is your subconscious mind where you are able to change your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and habits, and therefore, change your lives for the better.

When you are in an altered state, the unconscious mind can be accessed and the hypnotherapist proceeds to offer positive suggestions for change to the unconscious. This can be very powerful in helping to facilitate change in an individual.

During hypnosis, you will feel very relaxed, but not so much so that you fall asleep. You will be sitting (or lying down) on a comfortable chair, sofa, or treatment table. You will be talked through a progressive relaxation, which will bring you into the state of hypnosis. It is then, when you are fully and deeply relaxed that you can subconsciously work on your goals and desired changes.

  • Review by Beth Schaeffer from France
    1 out of 10

    "I was extremely disappointed with this yoga retreat. I do not believe it is value for money. It is overpriced for what it is. It was more of a weekend mini-break. If you are actually looking for a serious restorative yoga/meditation/hypnotherapy retreat then I suggest you look elsewhere. I am familiar with hypnotherapy as I have already done this practice. Rebecca’s sessions were ineffective. I informed Rebecca that the sessions didn’t work and that I had not managed to relax into a hypnotic state. She insisted that I had and that she could tell. I asked for at least 1 additional session since none of them worked. And, the last session was completely disrupted by the dog. She agreed that the dog was a disturbance but refused to provide 1 additional session."

    "In terms of the other “activities”. I practice meditation. Rebecca did not offer a single meditation session. I ended up doing my own practice. Most of the time, the “retreat” was about touring the area. It has taken me a long time to write this review because I have been so upset about the experience. It was such a waste of time and money. I would rate it a 1 star max."

    "------------------ Management Response from Paris St. Cloud -----------------------"

    "Hypnotherapy is an extremely powerful treatment on the mind and brain and there are certain times where it should not be used, repeated, or prolonged."

    "As a fully registered and certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Rebecca had to make a professional judgement and decision in order to adhere to certain guidelines. "

    "With regards to value for money, Clinical Hypnotherapy is indeed very expensive, especially with someone such as Rebecca, who has trained with Dr. Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna. Rebecca is now part of their trusted staff team in London, and her clients in clinic generally pay 499 GBP for 3 hours. So in terms of price, our retreats are unbelievable value for money. Everyone receives at least 3 sessions and there are so many other treatments, therapies, and activities available, not to mention the All-Inclusive accommodation in an exclusive area by the beach in a beautiful seaside cottage. "

    "We are sorry that you feel this way as we have done everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We have also offered you all of the other treatments available including meditation, massage, Reiki, etc, and we also provided you with extra sessions and activities too. We also ensured that you did not have to keep to the check-in & check-out times. This meant we catered for your needs from early morning on arrival day, until late evening on departure day where we took you on two additional excursions at your request, including an extra excursion to St. Malo, and then we accompanied you to the station later on into the evening."

    "We feel that we went above and beyond to care, support and look after you to ensure you could have the best beach retreat possible."

    "We value every feedback that we receive and we thank you for taking the time to provide us with your insights."

    "I've just got back from a wonderful stay where Rebecca and Lindsay did everything to ensure that I had a brilliant time, tailoring each day and treatments to what I'd like to experience. Among walks along the beautiful coastline, yoga on the beach, reiki, hypnotherapy sessions and taking me to visit St Malo's Christmas lights as well as being fed some amazing food, I have come home feeling relaxed and also amazing."

    "I've just come back from three wonderful days with Rebecca and Lyndsay. I had a very relaxing time, learning lots of relaxation methods, yoga moves, and new healthy recipes to try out when I get home. Between the two of them, I received meditation and hypnotherapy on the beautiful beach which is only a five minute walk from the house, Reiki, Swedish massage, and yoga classes. Every meal was expertly prepared by Lyndsey who cooks mostly vegan food and has introduced me to lots of new recipes. She was so good at accommodating any food intolerances or dislikes, not once did I feel hungry. Rebecca sure knows her stuff when it comes with the relaxation and self-help techniques, she has taught me so much in such little time, I am so grateful. They were both so welcoming and really made me feel like part of their family. Not only did they provide me with all these wonderful activities but they also collected me from the airport and took me for a wee tour around St. Malo before I got the train to Paris (talk about going the extra mile). I would love to come back next year and would definitely recommend this retreat to anyone wanting to change something, learn more about themselves, or just take some time out of your busy life. Keep up the good work ladies, you are doing a fabulous job, I will always remember this!!"

I am leaving after an incredible hypnotherapy retreat, feeling so happy and positive, having made a massive difference to my beliefs and my future plans, and I am now ready to tackle anything!! Excited for what lies ahead, and I can't wait to come back here next year!! Thank you for everything, and for the amazing hypnotherapy!! I love it!!! 10/10 Rating!!"

    "This time last week I was enjoying my first retreat, I can't tell you how much I needed to get away for a few days for some 'me time', I couldn't have picked anywhere better, the flight was so easy and I was met at the airport with a friendly face, I was worried about this part as I don't speak French at all, but I didn't have to worry."

    "I went for the weight loss hypnotherapy, I ended up enjoying yoga, the food, the walking was amazing and the great company, I left feeling very relaxed, and in control of my eating thank you."

    "The review was limited to 5 star. But, whilst my fiancé and I were the only "French" people who accepted to experience some genuine well-being, our journey in Brittany with Ms Jones and Ms Bates was worth more than just 5 star! "

    "Truth is French people are yet to be educated. However, Ms Jones and Ms Bates have been very welcoming, friendly and kind whilst remaining very professional. "

    "I can't thank both of them enough, and Ms Bates' cooking is creative, yummy and absolute goodness! "

    "Conclusion: Amazing place, amazing food and an instructive relaxing journey, what else could we possibly want more ? Well done and Keep up the excellent job !"

I felt reassured during the process and found her instructions easy to follow. The session was very helpful and I felt a renewed sense of optimism and courage in dealing with the situation after our session."

I am just where I need to be now. Yoga, walking, nature, meditation, and simply relaxing and being. I could have stayed for so much longer. I have learnt so much and laughed so much too. Thank you very much."

    "Je suis à a gare de Saint-Malo pour reprendre mon train pour Paris, et je repense aux mots de Rebecca : "ta retraite (retraite yoga) ou encore on pourrait dire "ton retour à toi même" commence vraiment au moment où tu rentres chez toi, à Paris. Qu'auras-tu ramené de cette retraite et qui va t'aider chaque jour? "Que vas-tu appliquer au quotidien? Quelle énergie sauras-tu utiliser?" "

    "Je ramène plein d'outils dans ma musette: yoga, reiki, séances d'hypnose dont une qui m'a fait lâcher la cigarette, recettes de cuisine (car quand on goûte aux plats de Lindsay on veut y regoûter encore et encore!), et c'est sur, plein de gratitude, plein de moyens de garder toute cette énergie, comme quand on entretient un feu de camp pour qu'il ne s'éteigne jamais. Les moyens pour être la gardienne de ma propre flamme. Et c'est d'autant plus facile à faire que Rebecca et Lindsay pendant ces quelques jours m'ont procuré tout ce dont j'avais besoin comme aide, et m'ont amenée, accompagnée avec tellement de bienveillance et d'empathie vers cet objectif de vie que je leur avais annoncé. Bref, du sur mesure! Merci encore à elles! A moi maintenant de continuer à tracer la route qu'elles m'ont ouverte."
