What hypnotherapy is
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that makes use of your mind’s most receptive level of awareness. In this state, we can help you to process fears, anxieties and negative behaviours and overcome them.
We enter this awareness state quite naturally; when driving a car, watching TV, daydreaming. We recognise it afterwards, when we suddenly realise we’ve been focusing on something totally unrelated to our activity.
The REM phase during sleep is another example, when the mind is busy processing information and experiences. Memories are transferred from the subconscious to the conscious mind, turning from emotions to a rational narrative that helps us to deal with life events.
Hypnotherapy encourages this natural mental process which is vital for maintaining a healthy mind.
What hypnotherapy is not
No one can take control of your mind or actions but yourself.
There are no crystals, pocket watches or magic wands and I do not touch a client; I simply talk, using positive mental imagery, while you relax.
