What is Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an intervention, which tackles a wide variety of symptoms using ‘hypnosis’ (a term used to describe a state of mind in which our subconscious is able to communicate with our conscious mind allowing us to access our inner potential.) The client is not asleep – rather mentally and physically relaxed, allowing the treatment of emotional and psychological disorders, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings, using psychological techniques alone. The aim of all such therapy is to assist clients in finding meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving.  Therapy also tends to help clients become more accepting both of themselves and others and can be most useful in promoting personal development

Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis – you will always be in control. Your unconscious mind always has your best interests at heart and will not be fooled into making you carry out actions that you would not normally or willingly perform.

People experience hypnosis differently – it is a very individual sensation. Many people report that they did not feel as if they were hypnotised – in fact they did not feel anything different at all other than an extremely pleasant and relaxing experience – where useful and resourceful changes were made.
