Hypnotherapy is a process of deep relaxation during which powerful suggestions are made that help to effect the required change.

The relaxation itself is a vital aid to healing and the management of stress, and therefore training in a simple relaxation technique is given in the first session.

Hypnotherapy consists of hypnosis with therapy and hypnosis is a trance-like state in which suggestions for change and for personal empowerment are more readily accepted by the sub-conscious.

A state of hypnosis is common in everyday life - it feels like one of those mornings when you wake up enough to hear and be aware of what is going on around you, but you aren't quite awake yet. It is even just daydreaming, or getting lost in a book or TV programme.

During hypnosis your body is relaxed; the muscles are soft and can feel either heavy or light. Meanwhile the unconscious is able to work on the suggestions that you've chosen to be given to you.
