Discover the Power of Hypnosis
What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness, easily achievable within minutes. Similar to meditation or entering a "flow state," hypnosis allows you to focus intensely, while the outside world fades away. Contrary to popular belief, you are not "under" during hypnosis; instead, it feels more like driving a car—fully aware, in control, and able to step on the brakes if necessary, all while being lost in a pleasant daydream.

Experience the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to make positive changes in your life through the power of hypnosis. By accessing the deeper mind, where experiences, emotions, behaviors, and distress patterns reside, we can unlock your potential for growth and transformation.

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy
Harnessing the power of suggestion, hypnotherapy offers a multitude of health benefits supported by scientific evidence. Here are just some of the ways hypnotherapy can positively impact your well-being:

* Overcoming addictions, including smoking, alcohol, and substance abuse.
* Reducing anxiety, stress, and phobias.
* Managing depression and improving mood.
* Enhancing sleep quality and addressing sleep disorders.

* Healing trauma and addressing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

This is just a glimpse into the vast potential of hypnotherapy. Whatever change you desire, hypnosis can be a powerful tool to help you achieve it, quickly.

Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™): Unleashing Your Potential

At Claire Russell Hypnotherapy, our therapist, Claire Russell, is one of the first trained, fully qualified Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist (RTT™).

RTT™ is a revolutionary therapy approach developed by world-renowned therapist Marisa Peer. Combining the best elements of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), RTT™ provides a highly effective method for rapid and lasting transformation.

RTT™ has gained recognition for its award-winning benefits, as it empowers individuals to identify and address the root causes of their challenges. By delving deep into the subconscious mind, RTT™ facilitates profound healing and rewiring of thought patterns, enabling you to break free from limitations and live a life of abundance.

Understanding the Mechanism of Hypnosis

How Does Hypnosis Work?
Hypnosis is akin to guided meditation but encompasses more than just relaxation. As a therapeutic modality, hypnotherapy effectively treats various concerns. During a hypnotherapy session, your skilled therapist will speak in a calm, soothing voice, using imagery to guide you into a state of deep tranquility. In this receptive state, your mind becomes open to new experiences, suggestibility, and positive transformation.

Brain-imaging studies reveal increased activity in key regions of the brain responsible for emotions, learning, perception, memory, and autonomic functions during hypnosis. This heightened brain activity facilitates deep relaxation, enabling your mind to problem-solve and connect with the parts of yourself that seek change.

In hypnotherapy, it's important to note that the will for change comes from within you, not the therapist. Hypnosis empowers you to break free from your unwanted habits, improve sleep, and alleviate symptoms such as depression, anxiety, weight loss etc. You might have struggled to find solutions on your own, but with hypnosis, the therapy process becomes more effective in addressing issues such as stress, anger, addictions, trauma, PTSD, grief, phobias, anxiety, sleep disorders, pain management, weight loss, eating disorders, and depression.

Evidence of Hypnotherapy's Effectiveness
When combined with other therapeutic approaches, hypnosis has demonstrated its effectiveness through scientific research. Studies consistently show that the addition of hypnosis to traditional therapy techniques produces better outcomes than traditional therapy alone.

A comprehensive analysis published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1995 compared studies using therapy with and without hypnosis. The results revealed that incorporating hypnosis into treatment significantly enhanced outcomes, with hypnosis clients experiencing greater improvements than at least 70% of non-hypnosis clients.

Furthermore, researchers exploring the combination of hypnosis with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for acute stress disorder found that hypnosis produced more significant symptom reduction than CBT alone, according to a study published in the same journal.

At Claire Russell Hypnotherapy, Cork and Limerick, we believe in providing the best and highest standard of care tailored to your unique needs.

Thinking of Joining a Group?


Group therapy meetings can be open or closed. We offer both.

  • In open groups, new members can join the group at any time. 
  • In a closed group, all members join at the same time. Only they participate in the sessions. 
How many people are in the group? 

Small groups may offer more time to focus on each individual in the sessions. Bigger groups offer further diversity and more perspectives. Sessions duration will depend on the number of members in the group.

What is the focus of group counselling/therapy?

Groups focus on the same issues as one on one counselling/psychotherapy/nutritional therapy.

How much should I share? 

Confidentiality is an integral part of the ground rules for group therapy. However, there's no guarantee of privacy when sharing with others, so use common sense when divulging personal information. That said, remember that you're not the only one sharing your own story. Groups work best where there is open and honest communication between members.
