Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of suggestions or images on an unconscious level, to bring about profound and lasting behavioural changes. This therapeutic use of hypnosis can assist you to discover your inner potential for joy and tranquillity, opening transformational doorways to lasting and positive change.
Hypnosis is a very natural, pleasant and extremely relaxing phenomenon which can be described as an altered state of awareness. This state is a highly responsive and creative one, which is akin to those experienced in activities such as daydreaming, sport, meditation and prayer.
It is not an all-or nothing phenomenon, but rather a continuum allowing most people to be hypnotised to some degree. The individual in this heightened state of awareness enjoys the full range of his or her mental and emotional resources.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and non-addictive therapy that has no unpleasant side effects and may be used to solve problems such as: Stress, anxiety, smoking, nail-biting, phobias, relaxation, sleeping problems, emotional and mental trauma, loss and bereavement, depression, examination nerves, concentration and study difficulties, lack of confidence, physical pain, overweight, speech difficulties and psychosexual problems.
