Hypertension - often referred to simply as "high blood pressure" - affects hundreds of millions around the world.
Defined as having a blood pressure level higher than 140 over 90 mmHg (millimetres of mercury), it doesn’t necessarily show up in symptoms, but can cause long-term complications nonetheless through a narrowing of the blood vessels.
Finding a cause is not always easy. As many as 90 percent or more of sufferers have what is referred to as “essential hypertension”, meaning there is no medical cause for their condition. Under such circumstances, a specialist would look towards lifestyle factors such as a lack of exercise, excessive drinking, smoking, stress and a salt-rich diet to try and explain the results. It’s also possible that childhood events, fears and even belief systems can have an impact.
Other factors, such as a lack of exercise or excessive drinking, may come from less serious roots and are possibly influenced by an unhealthy lifestyle or what a person considers to be normal behaviour. Although it is possible to change someone’s perspective on such matters while they are conscious, the results are often more effective and profound when a specialist is able to target their core beliefs directly at their source.
With appropriate Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy, hypertension is one of the most treatable disorders.
When we first meet it will be for the initial consultation, I will introduce myself and we will spend some time getting to know each other. We will discuss what you want to achieve from therapy. I will note down some general background and medical information.
I will then explain to you how your brain works and how we use hypnosis to help us move forward. These explanations form the foundations for all that we will do as we go forward. You will be introduced to simple tools and techniques that you can start to use straight away to start making really positive steps to achieving your goals. It is amazing how many of my clients find this session enlightening and rewarding.
Subsequent sessions will last for 50 minutes. The first half of the session is spent helping you focus on what you want to achieve. This is called brain based theory and involves understanding how the brain works. It is at this stage you will set a goal to work towards between sessions. This therapy relies upon you fully committed to change. I will do my very busy to facilitate change and give you a helping hand but ultimately your success will depend on your commitment. Change can be difficult for reasons I will explain but with commitment progress will be made and quickly. The second part of the session is conducted with you on the couch. I will put you into trance and use a combination of relaxation and positive suggestion to begin creating and modifying the neural pathways in the brain. This helps you to start moving forward in your life. My clients really look forward to going into trance as it is really enjoyable.
The actual nature and length of treatment will of course depend on you and your circumstances, but the majority of clients experience a significant improvement and are ready to cease therapy after 6 to 8 sessions.*
