Hypnotherapy is a type of complementary therapy that uses hypnosis.

Hypnosis is widely promoted as a treatment for various long-term conditions and for breaking certain habits.

We offer client-centered therapy. Each session is tailored to your needs and your personality. It is a collaborative process where the client and the therapist work together to reach an agreed outcome, rather than having the therapist trying to impose his will and views on the client.

The role of the hypnotherapist is to guide and facilitate the process the client is engaged in. It is important to remember that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A therapist technically cannot hypnotise you any more that he/she can meditate you. But if they are competent, they will make the whole process easier and enjoyable for their clients.

What it hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state in which you can think clearly, and your imagination is active. It is something natural that you already do every day.

Becoming extremely engaged in something and allowing your mind to focus means that you are experiencing hypnosis. Being absorbed in a book is hypnosis. You hallucinate people, landscapes, stories. It makes you laugh, cry or sadden you, but really, all you are doing is looking at ink stains on paper! Watching TV or a film, you suspend your sense of disbelief. You know they’re actors but you still feel emotions as you react to the story, even if it involves someone flying or dressing up as a bat.

The difference in therapy is that we use that skill and particular state of mind to allow you to achieve changes.
