What is Hypnotherapy?
Somewhere between wakefulness and sleep, we can experience a trance like state,
similar to daydreaming, called hypnosis. During hypnosis you can attain a pleasant feeling of deep relaxation. You do not
lose consciousness or awareness but gain a different perspective on what is troubling you. Being in such a deep state of relaxation reduces
mental stress and tension, allowing the mind to be more open to the process of change.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is using the state of hypnosis to treat a variety of medical and psychological
problems. Through accessing the unconscious mind, the repository of our conditioned experience, hypnotherapy can help you
learn how to react differently to certain situations, find solutions to problems and change negative thought patterns to positive
Our behaviour, to a large
extent, is controlled by the way we think. The most effective way to change maladaptive behaviour is to change the maladaptive
thinking which lies behind it. Hypnotherapy is a brief, strategic therapy, aimed specifically at helping you to find a resolution
to your problem. The state of hypnosis can be integrated with appropriate psychotherapeutic
approaches to help bring about positive changes.
