Hypnosis refers to an altered state of consciousness in which you experience deep physical and mental relaxation. You may experience this in every day life such as when you’re absorbed in a book or daydreaming.
When you experience hypnosis you will still be aware of all the things happening around you but may be focused on the experience of relaxation and wellbeing.
Hypnotherapy involves using this state of relaxation and increased focus to help you to respond to positive suggestions and ideas that will help you to bring about positive change.
While you are experiencing this trance-like state your subconscious mind becomes much more accessible allowing unhelpful thoughts and patterns of behaviour to be changed.
Through the use of therapeutic techniques and applications, hypnotherapy aims to support your subconscious mind to understand your problems, find solutions and achieve your goals while you feel calm, confident and in control.
