Location: My main location is a comfortable space in the centre of Clondalkin Village. I will send details when you contact.
Important: Hypnosis is an entirely natural state and phenomenon that enhances your self-control. You will recall all that is useful to you from the session; you cannot be coerced against your will; and you cannot get 'stuck' in a trance. These myths and concerns will be addressed during consultation.
Session Length, Fees, and Hypnotherapy Model
All Fees are 60 euro, with possible free sessions, depending on the intervention approach. Your hypnotherapist will determine the best intervention model below for your issue.
Sessions operate on the standard 50-minute-hour model (50 minutes, then a 10 minute closure to prepare for the next client).
Example Issues Addressed with Hypnotherapy and Coaching:
Depression; Anxiety; General Stress; Lack of Purpose or Meaning; Smoking Cessation; Sexual Issues; Goal Achievement; Trauma-related issues; bad habits; overeating; weightloss; and many more. [Life coaching methods can be used to clarify your values, improve work and relationships, and enhance your sense of meaning. You do not need to have a problem to enhance your life.]
This is a brief approach aimed at transforming negative habits and behaviours, such as smoking, nail biting, etc. Your therapist will indicate which intervention method is best suited for your issue. Fees are 60 euro per session, with three sessions being recommended (e.g., 180 euro total, pay as you attend or upfront). These extra sessions help to address issues such as cravings, psychological conflict in making the necessary changes, and other obstacles to behaviour change.
In short, suggestion therapy is very goal-directed and seeks a specific outcome.
If you avail of all 3 sessions for the recommended 3-session approach (180 euro), then you can benefit, at no extra cost, from 2 booster sessions. Thus you can get 5 sessions for the price of 3. These are free sessions which will help to insure that appropriate habits of mind and body are being implemented and maintained. It is recommended that a booster session be conducted once per month after the initial resolution of your issue. Suggestion therapy, and the booster sessions, will involve teaching you self-hypnosis and guided meditation to help maintain your gains. Booster sessions can also be used to address life coaching issues to help you adjust to the new patterns you have developed.
In short, after 5 sessions it will be most unusual if your specific problem is not significantly improved or eventually resolved.
Eudaimonic Hypnotherapy and Eudaimonic Coaching
This is a brief, yet deep, approach, typically lasting for 6 to 12 sessions. It is the recommended approach for long-standing issues or difficulties, such as depression and trauma.
For the purpose of insight and continuous development of personal growth some clients may wish to continue after 12 sessions.
The aim is to significantly transform your psychological experience on one or several issues during this time so as to enhance wellbeing and functioning. These issues can relate to emotional experience (issues of self); relationship issues (issues of others); and meaning-based issues, such as career and purpose (issues of the world). In philosophical and psychological terms, this means moving toward a state that is 'Eudaimon'.
Rooted in positive psychology and cognitive theory, by addressing the beliefs you SOW (Self, Others, World) you will REAP the benefits of better Relationships, more positive Emotion, greater Achievement, and more Purpose and meaning in life.
This unique eudaimonic model is a cognitive restructuring of positive psychology's PERMA model of well-being. It proposes that by addressing the cognitive roots of one's philosophy of living (in relation to one's beliefs about the self, others, and the world) one can cultivate the eudaimonic fruits of well-being (REAP), resulting in a greater sense of meaning in life. To that end, it is both positive psychological and cognitive-behavioural.
The 'REAP what you SOW Model' (TM) of Eudaimonic Coaching & Hypnotherapy.
Self Others----------> REAP----------> Meaning in Life World
To be eudaimon means to flourish in accordance with your true self and potential; to achieve greater authenticity and self-actualisation; to become more fulfilled. These terms have specific meanings as discussed in the 'Encyclopaedia of Positive Psychology' and other academic works. Within the model presented here, they are scientific terms.
Naturally, all of our life pursuits are driven by goals. But are they wise?
WISE Goals in Eudaimonic Coaching
In Eudaimonic Coaching, WISE Goals refers to an approach to goal clarification based on positive psychology and ancient philosophy.
W: Well-formed. Other goal clarification methods, such as SMART goal setting (specific, measured, etc.), is used here as the initial beginning rather than the end itself. Where other approaches stop, Eudaimonic Coaching begins.
I: Intrinsic. Is the goal intrinsic to the self and under one's voluntary control to enact? Eudaimonic Coaching uses a process to discover the intrinsic nature of one's goals. In essence, this is the hidden value behind one's goal pursuit.
S: Self-concordant. Based on self-determination theory and other positive psychology models, is the goal expressive of one's values and identity? Once the intrinsic goal is stated and the value clarified, are other behaviours expressive and congruent with this?
E: Ecological. Is the goal appropriate given one's embedded social relationships and the environment as a whole? If one took the ancient philosophical Stoic "view from above" position, would it be virtuous?
In short, WISE goals help to ensure that goals are well-formed, intrinsic to the self and hence under one's control, expressive of one's identity and authentic, and ultimately ecological so as to leave the world a better place. Wise goals form a key component of the cognitive underpinnings to the REAP-what-you-SOW Model of Well-Being.
Individuals interested in evoking resources to help motivate and enhance weight-loss are encouraged - but not required - to avail of the Eudaimonic Hypnotherapy program, which will address many issues other than weight-loss in the course of treatment. The Eudaimonic Hypnotherapy model for addressing weight-loss and self-image issues is termed The Inner Beauty Model (IBM), and is based on virtue ethical philosophy and positive psychology. Quick-fix methods are not encouraged for weight-loss.
