Hypnotherapy is the practice of helping people to overcome their problems with the use of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is an altered state of mind where you become very relaxed and enter a trance state. This sounds quite extreme, but really, it's not at all, as we enter similar types of trances many times in a day.
Hypnosis is just deep relaxation, and unlike popular belief, you do not lose consciousness. You are fully aware of everything that is going on
around you, but you do go into a trance state. There's nothing unusual about that. We go into trance states many times during the course
of the day. Reading is an automatic trance state, very often we will go into a trance state while watching television or even just walking along
the road. But the one that explains it best of all is when you are driving a car and suddenly you are unaware exactly where you are on the journey.
Have you already gone around that roundabout or not? We have all had that experience and we have been in a trance state. but fully aware of what
we are doing and where we are going fully conscious otherwise, we would have had an accident.
Whilst in that lovely relax state of hypnosis. We can start to feel different about our problems. And adding positive suggestions whilst it in
that state, we can learn to overcome those problems.
