Understanding Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, concentration and focused attention to achieve an altered heightened state of awareness.  This state of awareness in hypnosis is often referred to as trance.  Similar to the natural state we enter into, just before we fall asleep at night, while driving or watching tv.  Clinical Hypnotherapy is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy and counselling.

Hypnosis induces a unique state of consciousness, allowing the therapeutic suggestions you want, to be communicated directly to the unconscious mind. This interaction with the unconscious part of our psyche – a source of untapped potential and often the root of various issues – from anxiety, addictions,  fears and phobias, trauma, OCD, weight loss issues, inflammatory conditions, autoimmune disease, makes hypnotherapy an effective treatment modality.
