What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural phenomenon that occurs in both man and in animals and is as much a part of our everyday functioning as seeing and hearing.
There is nothing magical about hypnosis and contrary to popular belief it is not a state of sleep. It is better described as a state of heightened awareness and concentration at one with a feeling of calm and lethargic relaxation.
There are no adverse side effects from hypnosis and it is inconceivable that anyone could come to any harm as a result of it. It is totally safe, natural and non-addictive.
As hypnotherapists, we use the power of suggestion to induce the hypnotic state in a client and then work with the client's altered state of awareness to bring about a therapeutic end. This would usually be to help someone to stop doing something that they do not want to do or to start doing something that they would like to be able to do.
Hypnosis itself, therefore, is not an end result but used wisely is a powerful, natural tool in the aid of therapy.
