Many people experience anxiety, phobias, fears, stress, panic and similar problems, often on a daily basis. Some also have other problems…perhaps weight loss problems; or drinking more than they’re happy with; or using drugs; or they have psycho-sexual problems; or other issues. Hypnotherapy, specifically, Hypnoanalysis, can help these problems and I offer this approach at my practice just outside of Battle, East Sussex.
Over the years I have been in practice, I have often heard that I am ‘the last resort’ for clients, because they have tried other therapies / help for their problems before contacting me. Sometimes they report feeling better able to cope with or understand their problems a little more; sometimes they may have got some temporary relief from them. On the other hand, some clients report getting no benefit whatsoever from previous therapies.
Many clients have thought a fair bit over the years about their problem too, or talked things through with their friends or family; some of them may be taking anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medications; all with the goal of helping with their problems but unfortunately they have still got problems.
So, if their problems have not been resolved by previous therapies, medications, family / friends support, or other approaches, then what can they do about them? And where do these problems come from?
All human beings have the ability to suppress painful, uncomfortable, and ‘unacceptable’ (to others) emotions. Children do this especially if they feel that they don’t have anyone who properly supports their feelings. People who have experienced many adverse childhood experiences (of whatever type), will naturally tend to have more suppressed emotions than someone who hasn’t had these. Many people continue to suppress uncomfortable emotions to varying degrees throughout their lives. Whilst this behaviour in adulthood isn’t helpful or healthy, it is the emotions that are suppressed when we are young which are the key to many later problems.
When we are growing up, we have thousands of experiences, most of which we take for granted once we become adults, but they were once completely new to us. Sometimes these experiences create quite powerful emotions and, if a child doesn’t like these feelings, or they can’t understand them, or they don’t have the ability to process them effectively, or they feel that they aren’t supported well enough with their feelings, it is completely normal for them to suppress those feelings. These feelings then basically remain ‘un-processed’ – this may be good for foodstuffs but it isn’t good at all for emotions! 🙂
These un-processed emotions are held in what is known as ‘implicit memory’ and they cause a (psychological) ‘conflict’. This conflict can and does produce all manner of problems – anxiety, fears, phobias, panic, physical symptoms (e.g. asthma, eczema, migraines), psycho-sexual problems, problems controlling food intake leading to weight problems, or drink problems and much more.

Until the 1950s, this normal process we have of suppressing / not properly processing emotions when we are young, and the resulting conflicts, problems and symptoms caused by this, was well known and widely accepted. However, since that time, there has been a gradual move away from this well-researched and widely accepted theory by the general medical profession, many psychiatrists, and even some of the therapy professions, so much so that the medical profession, including many psychiatrists, tend to now pursue answers to these problems by looking for all manner of genetic, chemical and physical causes (and provide solutions in the form of medications such as anti-anxiety tablets, beta blockers etc) rather than looking at unresolved, unprocessed emotions. This change in attitude does not mean that this natural process of suppressing emotions no longer exists – it does still exist, and some doctors are starting to look at this aspect again but, sadly, it seems to be a slow change.
So, what can someone do about resolving their un-processed emotions….? How do they access these emotions and resolve them if they are held in ‘implicit memory’ and they perhaps can’t remember the adverse experiences which caused them?
This is where Hypnotherapy, specifically Hypnoanalysis is really useful…….
Hypnoanalysis can help people to completely resolve problems such as anxiety, phobias, fears, weight control, lack of confidence, psycho-sexual problems and many other psychological and emotional problems. Hypnoanalysis works with a person’s own natural healing ability to help them to properly process any emotions which remain un-resolved in implicit memory for whatever reason.
Hypnoanalysis is unlike suggestion hypnotherapy and even some other forms of analytical therapy, as there is no attempt made to change or correct problems either by the input of any suggestions, or by guiding people to a particular time or events in their life which either the person or the therapist “thinks” might be the answer. Hypnoanalysis allows a person’s own mind to resolve their own problems in its own unique way, quickly and effectively.
Hypnoanalysis is broadly psychotherapy used with very light relaxation – there is no magic, mind control or anything like that taking place: it is simply easier to have eyes closed through the process to avoid any unwanted outside distractions.
So, Hypnoanalysis can help to recover the ‘root causes’ of problems or symptoms such as anxiety, phobias, panic, weight control problems, psycho-sexual problems, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, nerve rashes, migraines – in fact any problem that has a psychological or emotional component to it. Once the unresolved emotions are properly processed, the connected problems ease significantly. The use of relaxation/light hypnosis and the absence of intellectual input helps to ‘speed up’ the natural therapeutic process which can sometimes take months or even years using traditional psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
The number of sessions needed for this type of therapy varies but, for the average client, between 12 and 20 weekly or fortnightly sessions is usually sufficient. Over the sessions I work together with my clients to enable them to achieve the end result they desire: I will create a safe, trusting, non-judgmental and completely confidential environment within which they will be helped to gradually and naturally resolve their emotional conflicts.
It is possible that you would benefit more from another therapeutic approach to help with your problem/symptom. This will be discussed and usually decided upon during the initial meeting.
