What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis to help us to create positive changes by encouraging and enhancing the use of your own inner resources. It is a relaxed state of awareness that allows us to work with the unconscious mind more easily. There are many myths about hypnosis which give a misleading impression. Hypnosis, or trance is a natural, and completely safe state of mind that we all experience several times a day, passing through this state as we go to sleep each night and when we are just waking up, and also when we daydream and when we are deeply engrossed in something like a good book or film. People usually find it a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience.

It is our unconscious or subconscious mind that runs our automatic habits and behaviours. It runs our bodily processes, and all the automatic processes that we do daily, such as walking, talking, reading, or driving a car. We can consciously decide to do these things, but the process of how we do them is unconscious.

The unconscious mind can also learn unhelpful habits, responses and behaviours, such as anxiety, fears, phobias, or unhelpful eating habits. Hypnotherapy is highly effective for helping us to resolve these issues and to create much more empowering ways of being.


How can hypnotherapy help?

Hypnotherapy is very effective for helping you to get more of what you do want and helping you to stop doing the things you don’t want to do by accessing your unconscious mind to create much more positive, empowering thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours.

During hypnosis we are able to create beneficial changes at an unconscious level that has positive, lasting effects. By giving you positive suggestions, you are guided in positive, empowering ways. You will only accept suggestions that are agreeable to you and will reject anything that doesn’t feel good to you or doesn’t align with your values
