What is Hypnotherapy?

"The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven."   - John Milton,  Paradise Lost

    HYPNOTHERAPY

“You use hypnosis not as a cure but as a means of establishing a favourable climate in which to learn.”  

― Milton H. Erickson

​​



Healing a person through hypnosis is one of the oldest therapeutic arts practiced by many ancient cultures of the world. 
Hypnotherapy is hypnosis used for therapeutic purposes to improve and change a person’s behaviour, attitudes, emotions and eradicate harmful or useless habits. It is also used to treat illnesses of the body and mind, eliminate fears and phobias and as a tool for relaxation.


How does it work?

The hypnotherapist makes helpful and positive suggestions to a person’s subconscious mind with the purpose of replacing any negative behavioural patterns. This is done while the client is in an altered state of mind sometimes called a trance. 

What is a trance?
A hypnotic trance is a form of dissociation which is similar to sleep but is not sleep.  Many of us have  experienced this natural state when we drive our car on the motorway and we wonder how we got from A to B or, perhaps when we are so engrossed in a book that  we don’t hear what is going on around us  Day- dreaming is an example of trance. When we daydream we are focused on some internal event, and we have reduced awareness of the things around us.   

 How does it feel to be hypnotised?
For many people hypnosis is a sensation of deep relaxation and calmness almost like daydreaming. Some people describe it as a “floaty” sensation.   This wonderful relaxed feeling can stay with you for days after a session.

HYPNOTHERAPY IS NOT STAGE HYPNOSIS!
When undergoing hypnosis, most people are conscious and aware of their surroundings but are open to the power of suggestion. They cannot be induced to do anything against their will.
