What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state of mind and relaxation, an altered state of consciousness. You unknowingly experience this natural trance state of mind every day. For example, when you experience drifting off whilst reading a book, perhaps when listening to music or when you are simply daydreaming.
It is this altered state of consciousness into which you allow yourself to enter, with the guidance of a hypnotherapist. During hypnosis you become less aware of your surroundings and more acutely aware of your inner feelings. You are in control all of the time, you always know what is happening, and you can come out of the trance state at any time in the same way one can snap out of a vivid daydream.
Through simple hypnotic, relaxation techniques you can easily drift in to a trance state, at which time with the help of a trained hypnotherapist, you can visualise yourself becoming healthier, happier, more confident, a non-smoker. Whatever it is that you want to be!
Through hypnosis you can change your patterns of behaviour enabling phobias, habits, negative thoughts and irrational fears to be overcome using this safe and effective method.
Most people find hypnosis a very natural, relaxing and pleasurable experience.
