Hypnotherapy is a therapy that uses hypnosis to induce a deep state of relaxation. Hypnotherapy is a safe, non-invasive and enjoyable process that can change lives in the most amazingly positive way, allowing individuals to achieve their full potential.
In the course of a day we enter hypnotic states many times, for example day dreaming about the future or experiencing pleasant events from the past, being absorbed in a good book or a film. Hypnotic states even occur in the car; arriving at a destination but not fully remembering travelling from A to B.
When used as a therapy, a deeply relaxed state of mind is reached through relaxation techniques, which in itself is very beneficial, especially in the treatment of symptoms caused or aggravated by stress. This hypnotic state feels very pleasant and is often described as feeling ‘very relaxed, yet fully alert’, where you are in full control of everything you do.
Hypnosis is a natural effective way of making contact with the inner unconscious part of us, a source which often not only contributes to many of our problems, but is an extensive reservoir of unrecognised strength, knowledge and inner healing potential. Hypnosis used in a therapeutic way is used as a pathway to bring about positive change and create a renewed sense of well‐being. Hypnotherapy helps amplify abilities, focus attention and reduce distractions, clarify and create goals, reduce stress and anxiety, which is often at the root of many problems.
Hypnotherapy is used in a number of clinical fields including psychotherapy, midwifery, surgery and dentistry. It can also be used for many non-medical disorders to help people overcome challenges such as unhelpful behavioural patterns, driving test, wedding or exam nerves, eating disorders, irrational fears, anxiety states, insomnia and unwanted habits or help improve confidence and self-esteem, sports performance, public speaking and much more……
