Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation during which suggestions are made to create beneficial changes in ideas or behaviour. Today, hypnotherapy is recognised by the scientific community as an effective healing tool.
The brain has different levels of consciousness, or awareness, ranging from fully alert to drowsy to fully asleep, with variations in between. Hypnotic states occur naturally and spontaneously. Some everyday examples include daydreaming, being fully absorbed in a task and losing track of time, doing a mundane task (such as washing the dishes) while thinking about something else, to the degree that you can’t actually remember performing the task or getting lulled into a dreamy state by boredom, for example, when listening to a dull speech. Clinical hypnotherapy deliberately induces this kind of relaxed state of awareness.
Once the mind is in a relaxed state, any therapeutic suggestions can have great effect on attitudes, perceptions and behaviours. In hypnotherapy, it is usual to feel relaxed, at ease, and you may well enjoy a special peace of mind. Many people comment on their feeling of comfort and security, or the sensation of lightness or floating. What is particularly pleasant about hypnotherapy is the fact that it is natural and safe when used by trained professionals, and almost everyone can learn to use it by themselves and be helped by it.(Australian Society of Hypnosis, 2015).
Side effects of hynotherapy is very rare however may include diziiness, headaches, feelings of anxiey, stomach upset and false memories. Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment, but a very useful supplement to it.
Hypnotherapy is very useful in promoting rapid change and focuses on what you as a client want to achieve through therapy. It does not focus uniquely on the past but rather, focuses on the present and future. Changes are achieved by using your subconscious strengths and resources.

Can anyone be hypnotised?
Most people can, providing they are able to understand the things they have to do in order to achieve this state.
Can I be made to say or do anything against my will whilst I am in hypnosis?
No. Medical Hypnosis is not the same as stage hypnosis, you are free to accept or reject any suggestions made.
Will I be aware of what is happening or being said whilst I am in the hypnotised state?
Yes. You may feel deeply relaxed but will never lose contact with my voice.
What happens if I don't come out of trance or something happens to you before I am brought out?
You would simply come out of trance naturally as the rapport would be lost with me. No -one has ever remained in trance indefinately.
Will I be able to drive afterward?
Yes. You may still be feeling relaxed, however your actions and reactions will be functioning efficiently.
When I am in hypnosis am I unconcious?
No. You are in a state half way between sleep and wake.
How many sessions will I need?
Usually 3-6 sessions is enough for people to gain life long benefits, however everybody is diffferent and some people require more sessions than others.
