Hypnotherapy | NLP | Meditation
"When you begin to meditate on a regular basis, you will start to notice that thoughts and feelings that may have been building up inside of you are gently released and you reach the quiet place that was always there, waiting for you - the place of pure awareness. It is there that you will experience peace, healing, and true rejuvenation."
Hypnotherapy / NLP
We offer one to one Hypnotherapy / NLP sessions. These are bespoke sessions, tailor made to suit the individual guest and the issues they wish to address.
Hypnotherapy has been proven to be of tremendously effective in dealing with a wide range of issues such as; weight loss, phobias, addictions, panic attacks, lack of self-confidence, boosting the immune system, changing eating habits, improving sleep, pain management and many others.
Some people have the misconception that when you are in a state of hypnotic trance you can be made to do things against your will. This is absolutely not true. The only changes that your subconscious mind will allow to happen are the changes you want to make.
Some guests are concerned that they might not be able to go into trance. The trance state is a natural state of consciousness that we all lapse into several times a day and the only reasons why someone will not go into trance during a Hypnotherapy session are that they are apprehensive or simply do not want to.
NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming can be viewed as a powerful combination of three elements:
Neuro - how we think and perceive the world around us
Linguistic - the language, both verbal and non-verbal we use to communicate.
Programming - the programmes of thought and behaviour which we run.
NLP provides a powerful set of techniques that can often eradicate irrational fears, phobias and unwanted behaviours in just one short session.
Guests at the retreat can either choose Hypnotherapy / NLP sessions to help them make lifestyle, dietary or any other changes they wish to make or simply as a form of very enjoyable deep relaxation.
Alternatively guests may prefer meditation sessions which are also available.
Whilst staying at the retreat, guests have an opportunity to enjoy a variety of styles of meditation. Some guests simply want to relax and enjoy guided meditations whilst for others, who want to learn how to meditate, we introduce various techniques, so that they can choose for themselves what works best and feel inspired to include meditation as part of their daily routine.
The meditation taught at the retreat is readily accessible for people who live busy lives and is an opportunity to learn a technique that will benefit guests long after they have left the retreat, hopefully for the rest of their lives.
Benefits to regular meditation:
Reduction of illness
Lessened stress, anxiety or depression
Increased ability to concentrate, improves memory and fosters creativity
Improves sleep quality
Help with addiction issues and emotional eating
Improves immune function
Reduction in hypertension and reduced risk of heart disease and stroke
Creates an overall feeling of increased happiness and well-being
At the source of so many of these issues is stress. The perfect antidote for stress is meditation. The beauty of meditation is that, with time, the wonderful euphoric relaxed feelings that people experience during a meditation session start to permeate into their daily life.
Whatever the initial reasons for meditating - they can converge in time as meditators get to know themselves better. You can become aware of aspects of yourself of which you were previously unaware. You can reach a happier, simpler state.
