The British Society of clinical and Experimental Hypnosis states say "In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist".
These suggestions help people make positive changes within themselves. In a hypnotherapy session you are always in control and you are not made to do anything you don't want to do. It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis, a hypnotherapist merely helps to facilitate your experience to encourage the unconscious mind to help you achieve your goals or find solutions to problems. Hypnotherapy is not about being made to do things, in fact it is the opposite, it is about empowerment.

Are you fulfilling your true potential? Is a lack of confidence in yourself holding you back from a true challenge in life? Hypnotherapy can help you to identify the reasons behind this.
Fears and phobias
Phobias are not something you are born with. You learn to fear an object or situation and that fear is accompanied by irrational thought and behaviours. It is possible through hypnotherapy to identify the causes and unlearn the fear and behaviour.
Todays' fast pace life-style results in many of us suffering from stress and anxiety. Whilst we need a certain amount of stress to function, as in all excesses, problems start and our health is affected. Hypnotherapy provides the best treatment in the form of relaxation techniques.
