What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a natural state that we all do without even noticing, it’s that feeling of daydreaming or when you lose yourself in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations. It’s that feeling of travelling home when you realise you can’t even remember the journey that’s when you have entered into the realms of the subconscious mind.
We all go in and out of light hypnosis several times a day.
Hypnotherapy is where a client is guided into a relaxed and trance-like state with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist.
In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
Although there are different techniques, Clinical Hypnotherapy is generally performed in a calm, therapeutic environment and has proved to be just as affective remotely or in audio form.
The therapist will guide you into a relaxed state and through a range of techniques assists you getting to the root of issues quickly and easily.
Unlike some dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in movies, books, or on stage, you will not be asleep, or in any way out of control of yourself. You will hear the therapist’s suggestions, but it is always up to you to decide whether or not to act on them.
The key with hypnosis is that you have the desire to change, or improve how you feel, act or behaviour in situations.
This is a natural therapy and a natural state where you can change the way you feel, act, or behave.

The Conscious and subconscious mind is often described or compared to an iceberg, with the tip being our conscious mind where we cope with day to day situations such as ‘what’s’ for tea’ or ‘what do I need to do today’ along with dealing with daily logistical issues.
The Subconscious is considered part of the iceberg beneath the surface, the bulk of who we are, our feelings, beliefs emotions, memories, imagination, the automatic nervous system.
Hypnotherapy uses the subconscious part of the mind to change habits, improve performance and release emotional blocks that have been stored in the subconscious, to improve well being and promote positive outcomes for clients.
