There's a gulf of difference between the clinical hypnotherapy that I
offer and the common image of the moustachioed, pocket-watch swinging
hypnotist that you might imagine.
Even though the word Hypnosis is
derived from the Greek word "hypnos" which means "sleep", sleep itself
has nothing to do with the hypnotic state and hypnotherapy. A person who
is hypnotised is not asleep or unconscious.
A Hypnotherapist is not
able to control another person's mind. No-one can be made to do anything
which goes against their will and own moral or ethical standards. When a
person is hypnotised they are in a very, very relaxed state. They are
still aware of their surroundings and the sense of hearing is often
sharper than usual. A person can bring themselves out of the hypnotic
state at any time if the need arises.
Hypnosis has been used for
thousands of years before even the birth of Christ, giving us and our
ancestors insights into the human mind that we have only recently begun
to understand. In recent decades hypnotherapy has emerged as a serious,
recognised scientific method of helping treat an incredible variety and
specificity of symptoms and ailments, including, though by no means
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Weight Control
and much much more...
