Hypnotherapy is not what you may think

During a session of hypnotherapy you will firstly be encouraged to relax by listening to a gentle slow paced invitation to switch off your conscious mind and let all of your daily worries drift away, a bit like a guided meditation. Followed by the positive suggestion part of the therapy which supports the changes that you wish to make in your life, in line with what we will have already discussed. The session finishes with a reorientation, which sets you back on course for continuing with your day.

Unlike stage hypnotism, you are in full control throughout the session and will probably remain aware of what is going on around you. You can never be made to say, or do, anything you do not want to, you will never give away any secrets or be made to act in a ridiculous way.  You are always in control but at the same time you are also very deeply relaxed.
