What is Hypnotherapy?

Tranquil lake

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis for therapeutic purposes is becoming more “main-stream” but there is still much ignorance about it. Hypnotherapy is not the same as the stage hypnosis you see on television; it is a gentle and non-invasive technique. Hypnosis focuses the mind whilst a person is in a state of relaxation. The relaxation of mind and body has the effect of turning attention inward and awakening the senses. Under hypnosis attention becomes more focused, just as a magnifying glass can concentrate the sun’s rays to become powerful enough to start a fire. A person will have a heightened awareness of internal sensations, and as this happens awareness of the external environment and everyday concerns is reduced. Therapeutic suggestions can be made to the person’s powerful sub-conscious and through these, changes to behaviour and thought patterns can be made, allowing the person to achieve their full potential. Hypnotherapy has many useful applications for both psychological and physical issues.
