Hypnotherapy is not a magic trick like some may believe but it is highly effective in treating a wide array of symptoms, health conditions or problematic behaviours, from wanting to quit a habit like smoking to general stress, pain management and trauma and is particularly effective to treat anxiety and phobias.

If a client at Broadway Lodge has been dealing with a problem that they wish to overcome, we may be able to help with hypnotherapy during their stay at Broadway Lodge, further supporting them in their healing journey into recovery. Please note, the availability of hypnotherapy is dependent on length of stay.

Treating addiction with Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy at Broadway Lodge – What to Expect

Senior Counsellor, Chris, is a fully trained hypnotherapist and works with clients to provide one to one hypnotherapy sessions. Hypnotherapy is delivered in a calm, quiet room away from main areas and noise in the house to aid the effectiveness of the session.

Chris initially enables the client to reach a point of deep relaxation that leads to a hypnotised state. In this state, a client can relax so deeply that they feel detached, or as a client has described it, “like having an out-of-body experience”. During hypnotherapy the conscious mind becomes subdued which allows the unconscious mind to focus on the messages being communicated from Chris, all tailored to the specific challenge the client wants to resolve.

It may take just one session for the treatment to work and other times a client may have several hypnotherapy sessions.

What our clients say about Hypnotherapy

Many clients have reported that they feel more confident, more relaxed and calmer after hypnotherapy and that it’s eased their anxiety.

One client summarised the experience, saying: “I signed up for hypnotherapy to see if it would help me with my anxiety. I’ve found it difficult to cope with going into shops and just generally being around people. My experience with the hypnotherapy was relaxing and calming. After each session I’d felt like all my anxiety and stress that I had was lifted. Before the hypnotherapy I went for a flu vaccine and had to have someone go with me. Once I had a few sessions I went to have a COVID vaccine and once I got there I was in a line around the building. It took 45 minutes to get in and have the shot and as I was leaving I realised not once was I anxious. It has also helped me in the house where I now find it possible to easily engage in groups and it also has helped with my confidence. I am very grateful and thankful to have had the chance to try it, because it has helped me in so many ways.”

Another client said: “Honestly, the hypnotherapy with Chrissy is amazing. I had it once before, but nothing like this. I feel totally safe and secure around her and her voice is so soothing and trustworthy (when I can remember it!). On the last session I literally had some sort of out-of-body experience. It was surreal, and I felt like my legs were jelly for the rest of the day. I’m always thirsty after but Chris sits you down and we spend a while just getting back to normal. I honestly feel it has made a difference to me and can’t recommend it enough. I know others have said the same. Honestly, it’s so, so good, I wish I could continue it forever.”

We are pleased to offer specialist treatment, hypnotherapy, alongside our already comprehensive treatment programme which includes a variety of therapeutic interventions, relaxing sessions and holistic treatments, adding huge value and benefit to our clients.
