Group Hypnosis, Meditation and Relaxation

These ‘Hypnosis, Meditation and Relaxation’ sessions are 90 minute group events for 6 to 12 people which will roughly follow the structure of a hypnotherapy session, with the first half being devoted to positive stimulation of the more rational, creative part of your brain via a specific kind of questioning, and the second half focusing on meditative relaxation processes and hypnosis. 

Differently to in a regular hypnotherapy session, however, you will not need to tell me or anyone else in the group what your responses to the questions are. You will be fleshing out your responses yourself as we go using writing and drawing in response to my different forms of questioning.

The latter half of each session will consist of a certain  amount of group training in hypnosis, breathing and visualisation, followed by a relaxing group hypnosis session.

  • Stimulate a higher level of rational and  creative thinking
  • Gradually gain clarity and focus as to  what you want to work on, move towards or change
  • Raise your motivation and energy levels in the week overall.
  • Learn more each week about deep, slow breathing, rich visualisation and other powerful self-calming techniques
  • Carve out a time each  week to reflect and relax, with no other demands upon you.

IS THIS A GROUP THERAPY SESSION?

It is important to understand that this is not a therapy session, as it will not be interactive and responsive in quite the way that therapy is. It is something more self-guided than that,  although  of course I will be there on  hand to help and advise to the extent that this is possible in a group,  and without causing problems from a point of view of confidentiality or making anyone uncomfortable etc. There will be a certain amount of time to answer questions each week,  and if you would like, you should also feel free to ask me questions in my free ‘Teach Yourself Self-Hypnosis’ group. 

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?

You’ll need a pen and paper. Then ideally headphones for the hypnosis part as this will give you a better sound quality while you relax. And it’s good to think beforehand about having a space you can lie down or sit back and relax for 20 minutes at the end – plus maybe a cushion or pillow or two and a blanket.
