Hypnotherapy is a process that usually involves:

  • deep physical relaxation
  • a focus of attention
  • an intriguingly detached experience of parallel awareness

It is the process of inducing the hypnotic state and offering suggestions directly to the unconscious mind.

The unconscious is everything that is not part of our present-moment or conscious awareness. It is a much greater part of our mind than the conscious mind and it is constantly influencing our thoughts and behaviour. The unconscious mind deals with all our body’s deep life-sustaining functions and is the domain of our beliefs, motivation, memories, past experiences and all we have learned. All of our thoughts and beliefs that control our emotions, habits and behaviour exist in our unconscious mind. In the hypnotic state the unconscious mind has increased receptiveness.

Hypnotherapy is the process of putting the trance state to work to resolve problems or enhance performance. Hypnotherapy is the created opportunity of utilising the trance to bring about positive change. The real importance of hypnotherapy is the healing and emotional change that is experienced while in the hypnotic state and when the mind is open and receptive to suggestions.

The range of issues people have come for assistance with have included:

  • anxiety
  • control and management of pain
  • depression self-esteem & confidence
  • fears & phobias
  • weight loss
  • smoking cessation
  • alcohol & substance dependency.

Hypnotherapy can also be helpful with childhood behavioural and physical issues.
