Hypnosis is a state of mind in which a person remains fully aware, calm and concentrated, whilst their body becomes completely relaxed. This altered state of awareness allows access to the subconscious mind, having relaxed the thought processes of the conscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is the treatment of emotional and psychological conditions, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings using hypnosis – a practise of promoting healing and positive development. During the altered state of awareness the therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the client, the seeds of which, in time will become firmly planted and positive change takes place.
The aim is to assist people in finding meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving. Hypnotherapy also helps clients become more accepting, both of themselves and others, and can be very useful in promoting personal development and unlocking inner potential.
Hypnotherapy makes the process of change easier thus enabling the client to pursue new goals with enthusiasm, motivation and confidence and much more likely to succeed.
