It is the use of hypnosis to provide therapeutic interventions, the combination of Hypnotism and Psychotherapy. Essentially a talking therapy but one in which the client enters an altered state of mind; referred to as trance. Trance itself is a natural and every day occurrence, which happens involuntarily; we just go into and out of trance states. Hypnosis, in the clinical setting, occurs when a client voluntarily enters this natural state for the purpose of structured psychological change and it is in this altered state of mind, that the therapy occurs.
For the most part there are two essential components necessary for hypnotic-therapy (hypnotherapy) to be effective, they are, expectation and belief and most often this comes from the client themselves. Sometimes, however, preconceived ideas, anxieties or scepticism can interfere with the induction process. If this does happpen, my skill, training and professionalism will assist you to overcome these hurdles. There will be no attempt to coerce, merely an open discussion where all of your concerns etc. will be addressed. Hypnotherapy, as a process, is highly effective, progressive and each successive session builds on the last; a little like life really; "practice, makes perfect."
