Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness, and, whilst in this state you can open your mind to beneficial suggestions to help you make positive changes in your life.
Hypnotherapy may help you deal with many problems which have their origins in the mind that you are finding difficult to manage on your own. It can be used in an analytical capacity to gain insight into subconscious triggers which may cause many unexplained symptoms. Some physical problems may also be treated effectively by hypnotherapy.

How does hypnosis work
There are two levels of the mind – the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind is logical, rational and analytical and it’s the part that makes decisions on a day-to-day basis. Willpower is also in this part of the mind. However, it is the subconscious mind that controls our habits and emotions. In hypnosis, communication takes place directly with the subconscious mind. This is why hypnosis is very effective in changing habits and negative thought patterns.
Hypnosis - Dispelling the Myths
Hypnosis is not sleep in the sense of night-time sleep. It is a state of deep relaxation that you can be guided into.
Don't expect to feel hypnotised.What you will feel is a state of deep relaxation.
You won't be made to do anything you don't want to. You will be in complete control.
In hypnosis you can't be made to tell me your innermost secrets.You will not disclose anything that you prefer to keep to yourself.
You cannot get stuck in hypnosis, just like you cannot get stuck in a daydream.
You will emerge from hypnosis immediately if there is any emergency.
You will be aware of what's happening and everything that I say and do. In fact, your awareness may become more heightened than usual.
If you become aware of any sounds either indoors or outside, they won’t disturb you at all. In fact, they’ll help you to become even more relaxed.
