Hypnosis is simply a state of deep relaxation, similar to meditation or daydreaming. Hypnosis is not sleep, it is a fully conscious state of mind that allows heightened awareness, creativity and the absorption of beneficial learnings. It also allows access to the inner (unconscious) self, allowing us to break negative habits, behaviours and thought patterns and replace them with positive and beneficial ones.

Hypnosis can also be used to enhance our own inherent healing powers helping us to naturally achieve a healthier mind and body. Hypnosis can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including smoking, weight control, anxiety and phobias, stress, sleep disorders, addictions, relationship issues, skin conditions and gastro-intestinal disorders. It can also be used to enhance your experience during child-birth and help with fertility problems.

Treatment usually takes place over 3 – 4 sessions although this can vary depending on the condition being addressed.
