Hypnotherapy is a powerful complementary therapy that uses hypnosis, a state of altered consciousness. The aim of hypnotherapy is to address specific issues and promote wellbeing, using a range of techniques to help bring about change on a subconscious level. Positive suggestions and new ideas will be offered to you whilst in a deeply relaxed state, helping you to absorb them fully and come out of your treatment feeling relaxed, refreshed and generally more upbeat.
Hypnotherapy can be used to help in the following situations and circumstances:
Treatment of a phobia
Hypnotherapy is perfect for addressing your fear and taking away your knee-jerk reaction to it, helping you deal with debilitating and irrational phobias.
Promote general wellbeing
People feel emotional, and sometimes physical, benefits from their treatment that carries over into their daily lives.
Relief of stress and anxiety
Hypnotism allows you to enter a deeply relaxed state, and you can learn to bring about this state on your own with practice and concentration.
Treatment of long-term conditions
Hypnotherapy can help relieve panic attacks and anxiety. Research suggests it can even help with physical illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome.
Hypnosis has a long and varied history. It dates back to ancient times, though people didn’t understand the science behind it and thought it must be a form of magic. As researchers and doctors became more interested in hypnotherapy, they began to think of it as a sleep-like state with great therapeutic potential. The practice has received lots of attention and research over the years, as people have come to understand it as a powerful cognitive state.
