Hypnosis is an entirely natural state of deep relaxation, which we all experience daily, when we wake and go to sleep.

It is also the state we experience when we have, for example, driven a car somewhere but can't recall the last few minutes of the journey, or when we become so involved in a book or film that we don't hear someone speak to us. The conscious mind is switched off but, if we then stepped into the road or there was a loud noise, our subconscious would instantly re-activate our conscious mind, and we would respond accordingly.

The subconscious is a very powerful tool that controls many aspects of our lives.
In some ways it works like the database of a computer, storing experiences and memories. As it is non-critical, it can also store information that is not in our best interests.

How can Hypnotherapy help?

  • By using relaxation techniques, we can bypass the conscious mind so that life enhancing suggestions can be made to the subconscious resulting in positive long-term changes.
  • This therapy technique can be particularly useful in dealing with established habits, as well as phobias and pain control.

Will it work for me?

Hypnotherapy can work for many people, sometimes delivering surprisingly beneficial results in cases where other therapies have failed. It can be particularly effective when combined with EFT therapy.

Whilst enjoying this wonderfully relaxed state you remain in control and in continual communication with the therapist. you remain in complete control and in continual communication with the therapist.
