Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Clinical Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy, is the use of an altered state of consciousness for therapeutic endpoint.
All hypnotic states are characterised by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation which individuals allow themselves to enter so that desired, beneficial suggestions may be given directly to the part of the mind known as the subconscious.
Hypnotherapy is helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own motivation and imagination to seek a desired goal. Hypnotherapy helps patients to relax and cope better with their symptoms and treatment, enabling people to feel more comfortable and in control of their situation. Some of the problems hypnotherapy helps with include anxiety, stress, phobias, panic attacks, eating disorders, depression and chronic pain.
At no point is the patient asked to discontinue any medication/treatment and the therapy often progresses with the consent of their physician.
