Welcome to Simon Garfield Hypnotherapy in Bournemouth, Dorset
I am a qualified Hypnotherapist in Bournemouth, Dorset and offer Hypnotherapy services to help with a range of conditions including fear of flying, a desire to lose weight or want to stop smoking. I am qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP. With these two powerful tools, I can help with many issues to help bring about a positive, long lasting change.
Please get in touch to find out more about my Hypnotherapy Services and book your free 30 minute consultation.
I realise that not everyone can find the time to see me in the course of a normal week. During the day most people are at work and getting time off can be difficult. In the evenings people are busy or just plain tired after a full days work. That is why I make sure that I have times available at the weekend for clients.
The fee is the same as a weekday and I don’t do anything differently. You can book a time that suits you as long as it’s during the day between 10am and 5pm.
I offer a free 30 minute consultation and this can also be booked at the weekend.
“I would just like to say a massive thank you, after 20 years of smoking and trying a million times to give up, after the one session I have done it ! I have passed the two week stage and feel so much healthier, have so much energy and don’t even think about cigarettes. I really didn’t think hypnosis would work and have been proved completely wrong. My eight year old daughter says you are now her hero for making her mum stop smoking !”
Simon Garfield Hypnotherapy
I have been hypnotised many times and I have always found it to be a very peaceful, relaxing experience. When I moved my focus inwards I found the hypnotist’s suggestions to be powerful and the visualisations amazing.
Because of this I’m not surprised to have seen great results where people enter a new chapter in their lives. All of this leads me to be confident in offering hypnotherapy as a really effective way of helping people.
At Simon Garfield Hypnotherapy I combine Hypnotherapy with NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to make the treatment sessions even more effective. I find this mix of approaches complement each other particularly well both in delivery and results.
There have been thousands of clinical trials that show how effective hypnotherapy can be. In 1953 the British Medical Association recommended that instructions in its clinical use be given to all medical students.
In hypnotherapy you will be very relaxed and receptive to suggestions and ideas that are intended to help you. It is a state of wakefulness where the focus of attention is internal rather than external.
In this relaxing hypnotic state you can combine visualisation and suggestion to bring about the changes you desire. During the hypnotherapy the mind is very quiet and focused. It is in a state of absorption and will respond well to direction and suggestion.
NLP is a tool that helps us understand the thinking patterns people have that dictate the way they behave, once we have that understanding their behaviour can be changed by remodelling the patterns.
If we look at the three words in NLP, Neuro refers to the way we think and the way thoughts are managed, Linguistic refers to the patterns of language used and Programming refers to the way we think, behave and communicate.
NLP recognises that everyone has their own set of experiences and processes these experiences in their own way. This leads to every single person having their own unique view or map of the world.
As people act according to their map so their behaviour is dictated by it. It is by reframing their map their behaviour can be changed for the better.
