What is Hypnosis?

Clinical hypnosis is surprisingly normal. It is an extremely pleasant state of relaxation, similar to day dreaming. You remain awake and totally in control at all times.

Can you recall driving a car along a route you have under taken many times, when suddenly you realise you weren’t aware of the last part of the journey? Or have you ever been so engrossed in a book or film that you had not realised how much time had elapsed? These are examples of naturally occurring ‘trance’ and through simple guided relaxation techniques you can reach this level of relaxation in the hypnosis sessions.

In this state of trance your subconscious mind is more receptive to beneficial suggestions, accepting directions to promote positive change. Brain waves change during this process, so we become more focused, more relaxed and able to make decisions easier.

“Research shows that there is more scientific evidence for Hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy…by using hypnosis people can perform prodigious feats of will-power and self-healing.”
