Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for the treatment and alleviation of a variety of physical and psychological symptoms. Hypnosis is a totally natural state that the human mind enters several times a day. It is a state of concentration that we often recognize when we become immersed in a movie or become aware we have no recollection of driving part of a journey.

Hypnotherapists use guided relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. During hypnosis it is possible to maintain awareness of your surroundings and to have control over your own behaviour. Each individual has their own unique hypnotic experience however it is a natural state of relaxation whereby suggestions offered by the therapist if acceptable to the client's subconscious can facilitate change not only to the mental state but also the physical state of the body.

For some issues Hypnotherapy can provide results in as little as a couple of sessions however more sessions or Hypnoanalysis may be needed for more complex and deep-rooted problems. Parts Therapy may also be a consideration for a client who has a sabotaging part preventing them achieving their desired goal.
