What is Hypnosis?

At some time or another we have all been in a trance-like state of mind. This often happens as we go off to sleep or on waking up. Hypnosis is best explained as a feeling of being very relaxed and sleep like in your body and at the same time being very alert and awake in your mind. It really is a very pleasant feeling of deep relaxation. During hypnosis suggestions are given, just the ones that you need to make the changes you want. It is so powerful yet very gentle with no side effects. Most importantly it is also extremely effective because of the power of the human mind. It is often the mind that is the cause of so many problems, whether it's a craving for alcohol or nicotine, a lack of confidence or feeling in an anxious or stressed state.

An observer witnessing a person hypnotised would indeed think they were in a deep sleep, but this is not the case at all. The truth is that they are highly aware, listening to the voice of the therapist, taking it all in. Sometimes the mind does wander and think of other things, that is normal during hypnosis. During hypnosis positive suggestions become firmly embedded in the subconscious mind allowing the changes to be permanent. It's so simple, yet so effective and easily enables the changes you need.

What is Hypnotherapy?


Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to treat problems of an emotional, medical and psychological nature. About eighty percent of people will respond well to this type of treatment. Hypnotherapy is often successful where other treatments, some more conventional, have not been effective. When carried out by a experienced, skilled hypnotherapist, the results can be extremely long lasting. It is very natural and safe, has no side effects and is becoming more accepted by the medical profession.

Hypnotherapy can be effective for so many problems especially ones that occur because of our emotions and habits. While it cannot actually cure physical illnesses such as heart defects or infections it can help with the immune system, making it stronger and also help to change our attitude towards illness. It can be used to help with so many emotional problems such as improving relationships, reducing anxiety, lifting depression, boosting confidence and self esteem to name but a few. It can help to break an addiction such as smoking and alcohol. It can also be very effective with such things as sports performance, exam nerves, public speaking, meetings at work, social situations and motivation. The list goes on and on...

It may surprise you to know that no-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when hypnotised, a person can still reject any suggestion. You will only accept the suggestions that apply to you. So therapeutic hypnosis is a state of purposeful cooperation. People of all ages can be hypnotised, so long as they are over 9 years old, do not suffer from serious mental disorders, and are not under the influence of alcohol.
