What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy induces a deep state of relaxation during which our subconscious minds become highly receptive to positive or new ideas. This is similar to the altered state which we experience when we daydream, or go about normal daily tasks on auto-pilot. If you want to change unwanted behaviours or habits, hypnotherapy can be a powerful means of doing so.
Hypnotherapy with a suitably qualified and experienced practitioner should always be safe, ethical and deeply relaxing, demonstrating respect for the individuals dignity.

Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
