What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a method of helping you get into a calm and relaxed state, similar to just before you go to sleep or wake up. When under hypnosis, you will be more open to the positive ideas that can be introduced, which will have been discussed and agreed previously. You are fully in control at all times, and you would not disclose anything, or act in a way that you wouldn’t do, if you were fully awake. This is a far cry from the stage hypnosis that you will have seen on TV – and there won’t be a clucking chicken or tu-tu clad ballerina in sight!
If you think of the last time you drove somewhere, then couldn’t remember half the journey – you were in a ‘trance’ state. Or maybe you were engrossed in a film or book – again you were ‘in trance’. This is what being hypnotised feels like – relaxed and at peace, but NOT asleep and NOT out of control. If you feel uncomfortable at any time, all you have to do is open your eyes.
