What is hypnotherapy
Unlike stage hypnosis it does not involve the therapist taking control of your mind or making you do something against your will, you remain in complete control.
Hypnotherapy is a combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis. The Psychotherapy uses “solution focused therapy” techniques designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind, focusing on solutions for the future, not the problems of the past. This itself is extremely beneﬁcial and its effects are enhanced by the application of Hypnosis, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of your life, encouraging a shift in perspective. Hypnosis could be described as a guided daydream; it is a state of focused attention achieved through deep relaxation and positive visualization. In this relaxed state, your mind is more responsive to beneficial suggestions, designed to help you change unhelpful thought patterns. Many people experience such “hypnosis” daily, for example driving a well-known route and not remembering the journey is known as “Highway Hypnosis”.
