Understanding Mental Illness & The Benefits of Hypnotherapy

What Is Hypnotherapy ?

Hypnotherapy is a guided form of relaxation that creates a state of focused attention, and increased suggestibility. By leading you into this guided meditative state and drawing your focus towards new perspectives on the worries and difficulties you face, we can overcome and alleviate these difficulties. Some people find the thought of hypnotherapy scary, but it is important to recognise it as a guided, rather than a controlled process. The myths you may hold about hypnotherapy from its use as a circus trick, rather than as an important and useful therapeutic tool, may be preventing you from utilising it effectively. No one can ever enter a state of hypnosis against their will.
