We recently caught up with Leah Jung, a hypnotherapist. We learnt more about her therapist experience including her journey into complementary therapy, her perspectives of hypnotherapy and what you can expect as one of her patients.
1. Can you tell me about your journey into complementary health and why you chose hypnotherapy?
My Journey into hypnotherapy health started with just talking to my clients at first and I found that talking really helped a lot of their problems, I always was interested in hypnotherapy and how it works, hypnotherapy has a unique approach to healing and addressing mind and body connection and unlocking the power of the subconscious mind,
2. How would you explain the benefits of hypnotherapy to someone unfamiliar with it?
Hypnotherapy offers numerous benefits to individuals seeking a holistic approach to their well-being. Through a deeply relaxed state, hypnotherapy taps into the power of the subconscious mind, allowing for positive changes to occur and positive suggestions. It can help overcome fears, phobias, and addictions by reprogramming negative thought patterns. Hypnotherapy is also effective in managing stress, anxiety, and depression by promoting relaxation and boosting self-confidence. Additionally, it can improve sleep quality, enhance focus and concentration, and even aid in pain management. Overall, hypnotherapy is a safe and natural therapy that empowers individuals to access their inner resources and make positive changes for a healthier and happier life.
3. What do you wish more people knew about hypnotherapy? What is the biggest misconception?
I will more people new of hypnotherapy as they think it’s mind controlling or think it’s stage hypnosis, clinical hypnotherapy is helping with clients problems.
One of the biggest misconceptions in hypnotherapy is that individuals can be controlled or manipulated against their will while in a hypnotic state. This misconception stems from stage hypnosis performances where participants are seemingly made to do embarrassing or outrageous acts. In reality, hypnotherapy is a collaborative process where the client remains fully aware and in control of their actions. The hypnotic state is simply a relaxed and focused state of mind that allows access to the subconscious mind for therapeutic purposes. It is important to understand that hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool used to empower individuals and promote positive change, rather than a form of mind control.
4. What advice do you have for individuals interested in exploring hypnotherapy options for their own wellness?
For individuals who are interested in exploring hypnotherapy as a complementary health option for their wellness, it is important to do thorough research and find a qualified and reputable hypnotherapist. And who is registered as an approved hypnotherapist and is a member of a society, Look for practitioners who have proper certifications, training, and experience in the field. Additionally, it can be helpful to have a clear understanding of your specific goals or issues you would like to address through hypnotherapy. Open communication with the hypnotherapist is crucial, as it allows for personalized treatment plans and ensures your comfort and safety throughout the process. Lastly, approach hypnotherapy with an open mind and a willingness to actively participate in the therapeutic process for optimal results.
5. How do you approach appointments with your patients?
My approach is to book a appointment for a free consultation chat about client’s concerns and how hypnotherapy can help them, once I know more about their concerns if they are still interested in going ahead I would send consultation form to fill and signed, I will make a treatment plain of 4-6 sessions, pre booked of 4 is cheaper.. many like individual appointments.
