Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is using the state of hypnosis to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems. It is estimated that 85% of people will respond at some level to clinical hypnotherapy. It may even succeed where other more conventional methods of treatment have not produced the desired result. It is natural and safe, with no harmful side effects.

Hypnotherapy makes use of the bicameral nature of the functioning brain and the conscious / unconscious processes therein. At its simplest level the unconscious mind becomes (through our life experience) the repository of our conditioned experience, while the conscious mind is the waking mind dealing with appraisal and decision making. In hypnotherapy the critical faculties of the conscious mind are sidestepped (through the hypnotic condition) and new ideas and 'suggestions' placed directly into the uncritical unconscious to effect beneficial changes when back in the waking state.

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we enter into many times a day, for example when we are daydreaming, just before we go to sleep and even when we are watching television and can be described as nothing more than a relaxed focus.

It is a very pleasant and relaxing state where one's awareness is heightened, and contrary to popular belief you will not lose awareness or control. It is in this trance like state that the conscious part of our mind is bypassed and we have more access to the subconscious. We also know that this is when we are most susceptible to suggestion.

It can help with many issues and problems in life including addictions, anger, blood pressure, blushing, lack of confidence, insomnia, IBS, relationship/marital difficulties, migraine, nail-biting, nightmares, obsessions, pain control, panic attacks, phobias, sexual problems, skin disorders, stress, trauma flashbacks and weight control. Hypnosis is a normal and natural method of altering someone's state of consciousness. It is very pleasant and relaxing and has no harmful side effect.

It is a safe, reliable method of treatment for many problems you’re finding hard to handle on your own - thoughts and actions you'd like to banish or acquire, or emotional suffering that is too overwhelming or has gone on too long.
