Hypnotherapy is drug-free and there is no physical contact. You'll be completely aware during your session, and always in control. There are many forms of psychological therapy but clinical hypnotherapy is distinctive in that it attempts to address the patient's subconscious mind.

Clinical Hypnotherapy also tends to help patients become more accepting both of themselves and others, and can be most useful in promoting personal development and unlocking inner potential.

what is clinical hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a relaxed state of focused attention. By temporarily bypassing your conscious mind, it gives you the power to make behavioural changes at a deeper level than when you attempt to make changes at the conscious level.

One way to think about it is that hypnosis increases the communication between your conscious desires (like losing weight), and the subconscious mind (where your true power to change exists).

is clinical hypnosis safe?

Completely. There are many myths surrounding hypnosis, including the ideas that people in a hypnotic state may act against their will or reveal private information. These scenarios, often portrayed in books or movies, are fabrications meant merely for entertainment. In truth, the hypnotic state is more like a vivid daydream where you remain in control, and able to direct the thoughts and images that flow through your mind. Morals and ethics remain intact, as does your sense of privacy.

Best of all, clinical hypnosis is non-invasive and has no side effects. Most people are not aware that they actually undergo hypnosis every day. The trance-like feelings you experience while reading a book, watching a movie, or daydreaming are all hypnotic states characterised by focused attention.

how will i feel?

Patients often describe hypnosis as a highly pleasurable experience much like an enjoyable daydream. As a result of relaxation, breathing slows and deepens, muscles loosen and sensations of tingling or warmth may occur throughout the body. While in this state of focused attention, you may also be aware of the everyday sounds around you, such as traffic noise as well as the voice of your therapist.
