What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical Hypnotherapy works by relaxing your conscious mind, much like meditation.  This altered state is called a trance.  Once your mind is relaxed you are more receptive to hypnotic suggestions directed towards desired change and open up to new ideas at the ‘unconscious mind’ level and let go of limiting beliefs.


There are many areas hypnotherapy can assist a person in finding inner resources to improve and change their present situation and achieve the goal they truly want.   

You are in Control

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t be hypnotised into doing things against your will. You can’t be forced into a hypnotic state either. Instead, you allow yourself to be hypnotised much like a meditation state of relaxation.  

All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis.  The Hypnotherapist merely guides you (coaches you) into the direction of new resources to assist you with change.

You are aware of everything and more open to suggestions that would be valuable to you.  You are always in control. All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis.  The Hypnotherapist merely guides you (coaches you) into the direction of new resources to assist you with change.
