Some facts about Hypnosis
Hypnosis is simply a heightened state of relaxation during which our subconscious mind is more receptive to different concepts, suggestions and direction. Many people ask me ‘can everyone be hypnotised’? The simple is answer is yes; although some people are more susceptible than others. I often ask my clients do you find yourself day dreaming? Have you ever stared out of a window or at a painting and found yourself so totally engrossed that you are stirred only by someone shouting at you trying to gain your attention? If so your response is more than likely to be something along the lines of “sorry I was miles away” There is virtually no-one who hasn’t daydreamed at some point or other and that in itself is a light state of hypnosis.
When you are under hypnosis you are experiencing a heightened state of relaxation, yet you are still able to participate in the whole event. You work with the hypnotherapist, responding to questions, visualising outcomes which all help you achieve the positive results you need. Throughout your session(s) you will be aware of background sounds in the room and can always open your eyes if you feel the need. This gives you the confidence in feeling safe and secure.

None whatsoever. What takes place is both relaxing and therapeutic. The benefits are completely predictable and no treatment is undertaken without a thorough initial conusltation and clinical assessment. With most problems a permanent release is achieved by finding and removing the originating cause.
No, you have been watching too much television
