What is Hypnotherapy?

Blog > Hypnotherapy

Since becoming a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I have found there are always a number of questions and myths about Hypnotherapy that always come up. So, through a series of articles, I am going to answer some of these questions.

Have you ever experienced driving from point A to point B and you arrived before you knew it and do not remember the trip? This is because you would have been in a noticeably light hypnotic state. Don’t panic, you were still in control of your car. The same happens when you are focused intensely on a movie or a book and someone is trying to talk to you, this is just a slight shift of awareness from your normal conscious state and that is Hypnosis.
Hypnosis is often associated with stage shows and other often mystical things. Hypnosis is not at all mystical and is a perfectly natural state of mind that we all go into hundreds of times every day.

The term Hypnosis comes from the Greek word “Hypnos” meaning sleep. Some other definitions of Hypnosis:

  • Guided Meditation
  • Focused consciousness
  • An changed state of consciousness
  • Intense relaxation
  • A series of instructions

“In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention focussed inward and appropriate suggestions made by the therapist.”

These suggestions help the client make positive changes within themselves.

Live your life with true happiness, clarity and direction.
