What is Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapy (guided relaxation with a purpose). Hypnosis is the process of inducing a trance (like guided relaxation) and therapy is the process of addressing and overcoming our problems by changing the way we think and behave.
A trance is a very relaxed, daydream-like state and most people experience trances quite naturally in their everyday life, for example when absorbed in a book or day-dreaming while carrying out a repetitive task, like driving and watching TV.
Hypnotherapy is a joint venture between you and I, rather than something I 'do to you'.
No hypnotherapist can make guarantees but with your commitment and a genuine want to change, hypnotherapy is suitable for most people, most of the time and for most issues.

How does Hypnotherapy work?
In a normal, non-trance state, we think with our rational, conscious minds and are aware of ourselves and our thoughts. However, when we are hypnotised into a trance state, the unconscious mind can be accessed. This is the part of our mind which controls our habits, irrational thoughts, impulses and some illnesses. A few examples of this are smoking, overeating, phobias, anxiety, nerves, confidence, pain, stress and high blood pressure.
So, when I have guided you into a wonderfully relaxing trance state, I then give suggestions to your unconscious mind which is highly focused and receptive. This enables therapy to take place at a deep and lasting level, changing unwanted habits, emotions, negative thoughts and undesirable behaviours.
You are in complete control at all times and can choose to come out of hypnosis whenever you wish.
