What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a heightened state of concentration and focus attention, also known as trance.

Hypnosis allows you to be more open to suggestions to making helpful changes in your perceptions, sensations, emotions, memories, thought, or behaviours.

Guided by a trained hypnotherapist using verbal cues, repetition and imagery, you will be taken into a deep state of focus and relaxation. When you’re under hypnosis, this intense level of concentration and focus allows you to ignore ordinary distractions and be more open to guided suggestions to make changes to improve your health.

  • In this state you’re more open to guidance from your hypnotherapist to help you modify or replace the unconscious thoughts that are driving your current behaviour.
