What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that uses the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The process helps to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while stimulating and focussing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness – reached using skilled relaxation techniques – allows the therapist to then make appropriate suggestions.

When might hypnotherapy be useful?

Hypnotherapy is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking and stress related issues and for a range of long-term conditions.
