Yvonne offers hypnotherapy services for individuals in the Sandton area and surrounds.
Hypnotherapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses relaxation, extreme concentration, and intense attention to achieve a heightened state of consciousness. It places the individual into an altered state of awareness. In this altered state, it is easier to look deep within yourself to regain control or make changes in certain areas of your life.
Hypnotherapy aims to create a positive change in an individual, while they are in a state of unconsciousness or slumber. It uses the mind to help reduce or alleviate a variety of issues, such as psychological distress, trauma, phobias, and unhealthy habits.
During hypnosis, you allow yourself to enter an altered state of consciousness called the hypnagogic state. The hypnagogic state is the state between being awake and being asleep. This relaxed state is the entry point into realising your full power and potential. A hypnotised person is completely aware of what is happening and always in control.
As a hypnotherapist, Yvonne simply acts as a guide. When you are in a state of hypnosis, Yvonne will make suggestions to focus your mind and help you relax even further. Hypnosis aids in the exploration of the deeper layers of your unconscious that are usually inaccessible during ordinary consciousness. At this point, you begin to uncover buried emotions and false perceptions to discover your true self.
The hypnotic state allows an individual to be more open to suggestion and discussion.

Yvonne specialises in two types of hypnotherapy:
Ericksonian hypnotherapy is a type of hypnosis which uses indirect suggestion, metaphor and storytelling, as opposed to a direct type of suggestion. Yvonne uses indirect suggestions because they appear to be much harder to resist.
Ego state therapy is based on the notion that a person's psyche is a combination of several distinct people or egos. This type of therapy is useful for those who want to understand themselves on a deeper level and establish inner harmony within themselves.
