What is Hypnosis?
Have you ever been so involved with a task that you have lost track
Have you ever driven from one place to another and arrived
safely, but not remembered the journey?
Have you ever read a book and
become so involved with the plot you can see scenery and hear characters
Have you ever day-dreamed?
These are everyday examples of an
altered state of awareness.
Hypnosis is another example of an altered state of awareness-one
which can be used for self help. It is a perfectly natural state which
occurs between being fully awake and fully asleep.
In the clinical
setting hypnosis is usually accompanied by a pleasant state of physical
relaxation which in itself is beneficial, especially in the symptoms
induced by or aggravated by stress.
The term Hypnotherapy means the use
of hypnosis for the treatment and relief of a variety of problems.
No one can be hypnotised against their
will and no one can be forced to do things while under hypnosis that
they do not want to do.
Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe.
There are no harmful
hypnosis, you will be aware of what is happening: most people do not
You are still in control.
