Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural process. Your therapist will guide you to reach a comfortable and relaxed state known as ‘trance’. This simply means your conscious mind is relaxed but you are still in full control of yourself, your thoughts and your actions.
We all experience this every day, whenever your mind wanders or you focus on something intently like reading a book or watching a film, you are in a state of hypnosis.
In this relaxed state your subconscious mind (where fears, phobias and habits exist) is more able to accept suggestions and ideas, enabling you to make the changes you want to make or overcome what has been holding you back.
Hypnotherapy has been endorsed by the BMA (British Medical Association) as being clinically effective in treating IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and can successfully treat a wide range of conditions, particularly those with an emotional or behavioural element.
