What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a guided form of therapy which makes use of a mixture of extreme concentration, attention, and relaxation to help an individual reach a heightened state of awareness, or a trance. Hypnotherapy is used to generate a state of concentrated attention and enhanced suggestibility during which constructive feedback and directed visualisation are used to improve performance, and help people cope with a range of issues and concerns. Hypnotherapy is backed by scientific research.

There are many benefits of hypnotherapy and, whether used alone or in conjunction with other forms of therapy, it can play a big role in protecting and promoting physical, emotional and mental health.

Hypnosis has been shown to be successful in relieving anxiety and depression, create lasting change in adopting new behaviours and habits and is also am important tool in performance enhancement by facilitating mastery of new skills, strengthening learning outcomes and overall goal achievement.

What Hypnotherapy is NOT!

Therapeutic Hypnotherapy is not what you see in the movies or at fringe festivals and stand up stage shows – actual hypnosis isn’t about putting someone under a spell or taking away their control, and getting them to do humiliating acts for others amusement. It’s just the opposite!

Hypnosis is a guided process where you are always in total control. It is a very empowering experience that helps put in in contact with your subconscious mind that it puts the power to change your life, or master new behaviours back into your hands. It equips you with the insight you need to change the aspects of your life that you want foster, improvement and mastery.

Hypnosis cannot do anything that a client resists happening.

It cannot make you act against, or abandon, your moral code.
