What is Hypnotherapy?

Clinical hypnotherapy is an effective, and increasingly popular form of  therapy. A variety of techniques are used in clinical hypnotherapy which have their roots in the principles and theories of psychology, neurolinguistic programming and counselling.

Hypnosis is perfectly safe and natural, in fact we all experience it regularly. It can be compared to the state of mind we are in when engrossed in a good film to the exclusion of everything else, or perhaps sunbathing on a beach and feeling totally relaxed in body but vaguely hearing what’s going on around.  Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to facilitate change.

As you enter the hypnotic state you will become less aware of your surroundings and more aware of your inner world. The focus of your attention will shift to the suggestions that are being put to you, in order to facilitate change i.e. your attitude towards food, your smoking habit, or your fear of flying, The suggestions are your conscious desires. There is no loss of control. You won't do anything that you do not agree with or which goes against your moral code.

Everyone has within them the resources to change and to reach their full potential. Hypnotherapy helps people access and utilise their inner resources held within their subconscious mind. It assists you in regaining control of thoughts, feelings and actions.
