    What is Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?

    Hypnosis is the original mind body medicine dating back to before 5,000 BC. It was Aristotle who said “Before you heal the body and its symptoms, you must first heal the mind”.

    Modern Scientific Clinical hypnosis is extremely effective in changing habit patterns and this is underpinned by the documented research and acceptance by the major medical associations and religions of the world. Clinical Hypnosis is widely used in education, psychology, medicine, dentistry, counselling, sports etc.

    How does Clinical Hypnosis work?
    Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induce by suggestion. It’s a non-addictive power for good and it’s a natural manifestation of the mind at work.
    Hypnosis works, but will Hypnosis enable me to stop smoking?

    Yes! Hypnosis works and it will work for you to help you stop smoking. in essence, hypnosis is a means of communication between the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Smoking habits and symptoms are controlled by the subconscious mind. Through the use of hypnosis we can access the sub-conscious mind and remove the unwanted habits.

    During a clinical session, how will I know I am hypnotised?

    There is no such thing as a hypnotised feeling and most clients on completion would say “they felt deeply relaxed and aware”. Others may feel a lightness or tingling feeling, others feel a heaviness while others report they didn’t feel anything. however one positive side effect that people notice is the positive change in their behaviour.

    Is Hypnosis safe and is there any cause for concern?

    Clinical Hypnosis is completely safe. Conscious hypnosis is not sleep, therefore you are aware and can respond to the positive suggestions administered during the session.

    A person who does not want to be hypnotised, cannot be hypnotised or be induced to do or say anything which violates personal standards of behaviour or integrity. Yes, hypnosis is safe and hypnosis is a proven ethical therapeutic clinical procedure.

    How does hypnosis help me to overcome my problems?

    Symptoms are acquired over a long period of time and are activated by the subconscious mind, therefore they can only be deactivated by the subconscious mind and hypnosis works by giving access and the ability to communicate directly with the source of your problem. It is the only logical method of dealing with symptoms.
