What is hypnotherapy?

We experience trance states many times in the course of our lives. Even passing into ordinary sleep involves a kind of trance state. The experience of hypnosis is similar: neither asleep nor awake and a little like daydreaming, with a pleasant feeling of deep relaxation behind it all.

Hypnosis is a wonderful way to contact with our inner self, which is both a reservoir of unrecognised potential and knowledge as well as being the unwitting source of many of our problems.
No-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when hypnotised, a person can still reject any suggestion. Thus therapeutic hypnosis is a state of purposeful (confidential) co-operation.

Hypnotherapy sessions are customised to your individual needs and wants, and your beliefs are respected at all times. The initial session will be an in-depth getting to know you moment, with questions and discussions openly talked over. The result will be a tailor-made hypnotic session just for you.

Modern Clinical Hypnotherapy is an ‘integrative’ field of study. This means that the best elements of many other forms of therapy have been integrated into Clinical Hypnotherapy. This includes behavioural psychology, cognitive psychology, as well as the most effective elements from the classical theories proposed by Freud, Jung and Adler, as well as the latest in terms of how the mind functions.

Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe and there are no harmful side effects. When used by a professionally trained and skilled therapist the benefits are long lasting and often permanent.
