What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change. I will use relaxation techniques to help you reach a state where the conscious part of your mind is relaxed and your subconscious part is more open to suggestion, This is called hypnosis.
I will then use suggestion techniques to help encourage the change you’re looking for.
Will you make me do something with which I am not comfortable?
No I cannot make you do anything against your will try, not to think of the stereotypical image of someone being hypnotised to run around like a chicken on stage, this is not hypnotherapy. You will simply go in to a relaxed state of consciousness and it only works if you are willing to do so.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis does feel very nice and relaxing, almost like taking a nap. The big difference is in what you are guided to experience during this state. There are many unusual effects that hypnosis can have on a person. An example of a famous one is the arm levitation, where your arm rises up with a distinct sense that you are not doing it intentionally. There are many strange sensations a person can have during a trance which can only happen under hypnosis; none of these can cause you any harm or pain. Remember, that you cannot be hypnotised against your will, it works only if you agree to let it happen.
