Ms Frances Jones Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist
Counseling and Hypnotherapy is beneficial for Anxiety, Depression, Phobias, Quit smoking, Addictions, Fertility, Pregnancy, Arthritis and High Blood Pressure.
It’s so healthy for your mind and body to go deeply within. Close your eyes, feel the peace and healing within.
Hypnosis is a way of making changes in your life at that deeper part of your mind that you can’t access yourself. Hypnosis bypasses the critical conscious mind to work with the subconscious, the field of infinite possibilities. If you can visualize it, you can achieve it.
Stress can be harmful to our minds and bodies. When we relax deeply, we let go of anxiety and stress, the cause of a lot of problems. In a state of guided deep relaxation we can let go.
