Hypnotherapy means the use of hypnosis for the treatment and relief of a variety of somatic and psychological symptoms. Hypnotherapy is considered to be a 'Brief Therapy' which means that positive results are achieved within only a few sessions.
The actual experience of being hypnotised is difficult to describe, neither asleep nor awake, a little like daydreaming. All hypnotic states are characterised by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation, an altered state of consciousness into which individuals allow themselves to enter so that desired, beneficial suggestions may be given directly to the unconcious mind.
Hypnosis is a natural, effective way of making contact with the inner (unconscious) self, a source of many of our problems as well as a tremendous reservoir of unrecognised potential strength and knowledge.
It is a fact that no one can be hypnotised against their will and even when hypnotised a person can still reject any suggestion. This therapeutic hypnosis is a state of purposeful cooperation. When carried out by a professionally trained and skilled hypnotherapist, the benefits can be long lasting and often permanent. It is completely natural and safe, with no harmful side effects.
