Hypnotherapy is a hypnotic trance is simply a state of relaxed but focused attention, which can only be induced with your agreement.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a very natural and safe phenomenon that many of us have experienced. Indeed every time you become focused on a T.V. programme, daydream or think about what you will be doing later in the day you are experiencing a hypnotic or altered state of consciousness. A hypnotic trance is simply a state of relaxed but focused attention, which can only be induced with your agreement. You cannot be hypnotised against your will and you will generally be aware of everything that happens during a session.
What happens during a treatment?
Initially you will be invited to consult with a hypnotherapist so that a full assessment of your problem can be made. This allows you to plan and agree an effective programme of treatment.
If hypnosis is agreed as a way forward, you may then be invited to experience hypnosis by being guided towards a state of deep relaxation, which most people find very pleasant. A full treatment will be made to affect the desired positive changes.
Can I be hypnotised?
Yes, everyone has the ability to enter a hypnotic state, but you must want to be hypnotised. The hypnotherapist does not take over control of your mind and cannot make you do anything that you do not want to. Hypnosis is simply a way of communication with your subconscious mind in order to make changes that are good for you. If you do want to be hypnotised, then hypnosis can work very effectively for you.
What can be treated?
Hypnotherapy is a very powerful tool in contributing towards the successful treatment of a range of conditions including:

Is hypnotherapy suitable for me?
Hypnotherapy is a very safe treatment for most people but if you are having medical treatment for any condition it is important that you let the hypnotherapist know, particularly if you might need medication during the treatment.
It is important that you let your hypnotherapist know if you:
- Have any allergies
- Are pregnant
- Have epilepsy or seizures
- Are diabetic
- Have a heart or breathing condition including asthma
- Have a history of mental health problems
It is also important to tell the hypnotherapist about any medications you are taking.
If you have any concerns as to whether treatment is suitable for you please speak to your hypnotherapist first. In most cases, treatment will still be given but adapted to your specific requirements.
There are no real side effects to hypnotherapy but some people feel very relaxed or drowsy after a session and you should not drive or return to work until you feel fully able to do so.
