What is Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand, it needs commitment from both the therapist and you, the client. However it is a very effective treatment helping to make positive changes to your feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

We all know that moths, spiders, buttons and the number 8 won't really hurt us yet some see these things as a problem causing a great deal of stress and fear.
 We all know that smoking is bad for your health yet the moment you think of 'quitting' you reach for a cigarette. 
We have all heard about healthy eating, yet for some, looking at that slice of cake sitting on the plate is just too tempting to ignore. 

These are just a few examples of the problems we can face, some are cravings, some phobia's and some learned behaviour. Our subconscious is a great thing, holding on to all the information we pick up as we develop from a baby into adulthood and beyond, but it's this subconscious that also holds onto information that's not helpful and it is this that can cause great distress to us.

Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious & your imagination to make it easier to change these things that are troubling you. Hypnosis is a natural process that we all experience many times each day. We all daydream, become engrossed in a film or book and those little moments of simple contemplation while seemingly staring into space, these are all instances of a hypnotic experience.

During Hypnosis you will become comfortably relaxed, and during this time I will talk to your subconscious about the problem you have. Your subconscious will absorb all the important information, helping to make lasting changes to the way you think and feel.

There's no trickery, Hypnotherapy is not like stage hypnosis, and although they share a similar action they are both also very different. Stage Hypnosis starts by selecting members of the audience who are outgoing in character and people who want to be on the stage, and also people who don't mind the embarrassment and who will play along with whatever the Hypnotist says. Although this shows the power of Hypnosis as you can see it differs in many ways from Hypnotherapy.

The aim of Hypnotherapy is to get to the root cause of the problem and working together for this to come about. It it always clients welfare and best interests that are important, and the client has full and complete control.
