Warhammer Activity Group

Our new Warhammer activity group is now here at Unmasked Mental Health!!!
Warhammer is a tabletop battle game which puts players in command of armies of valiant humans, noble elves, savage orcs, or a variety of twisted and monstrous creatures. Players collect forces of miniature plastic models, all with different stats and abilities, and use them to play out clashes on a tabletop battlefield. Unlike a board game, where players’ moves are restricted to defined areas, Warhammer commanders freely manoeuvre their units set distances using rulers and resolve shooting and hand-to-hand combat by rolling dice.
Whether you are a total newbie and would like to learn how to play Warhammer, or you are an experienced player who would like to come along to with others, everyone is very welcome.
Every Thursday morning from 10am-12pm in our central Halifax Hub 20-24 Commercial Street, Halifax, HX1 1TA. The workshop is entirely free to attend and refreshments will be provided.
No need to book, just come along.
If you would like more information, please call 01422 356945 and speak to one of the team.

How Hypnotherapy Works:

During a hypnotherapy session, a trained hypnotherapist guides the individual into a state of deep relaxation. This relaxed state, often referred to as a hypnotic trance, allows the therapist to bypass the critical conscious mind and directly communicate with the subconscious mind. Through positive suggestions and imagery, the therapist helps the individual explore and reframe their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

Applications of Hypnotherapy:

  1. Behavioural Issues: Hypnotherapy can be effective in addressing habits or behaviours such as smoking, nail-biting, or overeating by targeting the subconscious mind’s underlying causes and providing suggestions for positive change.
  2. Anxiety and Stress Management: Hypnotherapy techniques can aid in managing stress, anxiety, and phobias by promoting relaxation, altering negative thought patterns, and fostering a sense of calm.
  3. Pain Management: Hypnosis has been found useful in managing chronic pain conditions, such as migraines, fibromyalgia, or back pain, by helping individuals develop coping strategies and modifying their perception of pain.
  4. Emotional Well-being: Hypnotherapy can assist in overcoming emotional challenges, including depression, grief, trauma, and low self-esteem, by facilitating the exploration and resolution of underlying psychological issues.
  5. Performance Enhancement: Athletes, public speakers, and individuals seeking to improve their performance in various areas can benefit from hypnotherapy. It can enhance focus, confidence, and motivation, enabling individuals to reach their full potential.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy:

  1. Non-Invasive: Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive approach that does not require medication or surgery, making it a safe alternative for individuals seeking complementary or alternative treatments.
  2. Holistic Approach: By addressing the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can target the root causes of various issues, promoting holistic healing rather than solely addressing symptoms.
  3. Versatility: Hypnotherapy can be integrated with other therapeutic techniques, such as Stress Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or used as a standalone treatment, depending on the individual’s needs and preferences.
  4. Empowerment: Through hypnotherapy, individuals are empowered to tap into their inner resources and develop self-awareness, self-control, and resilience.
  5. Long-lasting Effects: Hypnotherapy aims to produce lasting changes by addressing the underlying issues, enabling individuals to maintain positive transformations even after the therapy concludes.

Considerations and Precautions:

  • Hypnotherapy should always be conducted by a certified and experienced hypnotherapist. Note: Dr Phil Wheeliker is fully qualified and licensed.
  • Individuals with severe psychiatric disorders (such as schizophrenia, dissociative disorders, or psychosis) or certain medical conditions (such as Epilepsy or Seizure Disorders) may not be suitable candidates for hypnotherapy. Consultation with a healthcare professional is advisable.
  • Substance Abuse or Addiction: Whilst hypnotherapy is used as a complementary approach to dealing with substance abuse, individuals with active substance abuse problems should ensure they are clear from such substances for at least 12 hours before a hypnosis session.
  • While hypnotherapy can be highly effective, results may vary between individuals, and for some deep lying issues, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve desired outcomes.

Hypnotherapy is a valuable therapeutic technique that can support individuals in achieving personal growth, positive change, and emotional well-being. By harnessing the power of the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy offers a versatile and holistic approach to address a wide range of issues and enhance overall quality of life.
