Physical or emotional ailments are your body’s way of asking for help.

And hypnotherapy is a way to uncover what these messages mean - by speaking with your subconscious.

What is hypnotherapy?

There are many misconceptions about hypnosis. Firstly, people are not treated with hypnosis, they are treated in hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon. It’s an increased state of concentration and suggestibility. In this state, the conscious critical mind becomes an observer. This allows direct communication with the subconscious mind and can provide changes at the subconscious level.

People often become empowered by learning to hypnotize themselves to reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, or alleviate some symptoms of depression or anxiety. This is done by creating positive feelings, pictures, images, sights, sounds, smells and emotions to replace specific negative ones gathered up unknowingly over the years. 

By opening up communications with the subconscious mind, hypnosis provides a guided approach to get the mind into a deeply relaxed state and address stress, anxiety, insomnia and more.

All you need is:

  • a willingness to experience a new modality

  • a willingness to use your imagination

  • a desire to allow yourself to go into a deep state of calm focus

What does it feel like?

You won’t do or say anything in hypnosis that you would not normally say or do.  You are in control at all times. You will know everything that is going on around you, what I am saying and what you are thinking, doing or saying.

In fact, some people will think they have not been in hypnosis because they are expecting something odd to be happening to them.  Do not expect a lack of consciousness or amnesia. 

Hypnosis is about imagination and creation.
