Hypnosis is a natural, familiar state we go into many times each day. For instance, sometimes we go into this state when we're driving, watching TV, listing to music , reading a good book, or working on a project that we're passionate about. During hypnosis clients are conscious, awake, participating, and remembering.

    Hypnotherapy is the practise of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. During hypnotherapy people go through a process that induces this trance-like state, it helps them to focus their minds, and become deeply relaxed.

    It is a state from which we can make extremely powerful changes in your life because it is the state in which you are the most receptive, creative, and intuitive. The hypnotic state makes you better able to respond to positive suggestions, from your therapist, without resistance.

    Hypnosis is a genuine therapeutic tool, and many therapists find hypnotherapy to be more efficient than traditional therapy techniques. It can have powerful and effective outcomes for a wide range of conditions.


    MYTH: It is possible to be hypnotised against your will.

    Anyone who actively resists attempts to induce hypnosis cannot be hypnotised.

    MYTH: Hypnosis will only work on certain people.

    Hypnosis is a natural brain wave state.  It’s a state that you experience when waking up and when going to sleep every day.  If you want it to work and you cooperate then you will be open to its effects.

    MYTH: You will reveal your secrets during hypnosis.

    Hypnosis only helps a person to let go if they want to.  It's a process of cooperation and you will only share what you want to with your therapist. You will not reveal information that you wish to keep to yourself.

    MYTH: I won't remember what happens during hypnosis.

    You'll be aware of exactly what is going on before, during and after being hypnotised. It is normal for your mind to wander at times, not always focused on what the hypnotist is saying, this is completely natural.

    MYTH: It’s possible to become stuck in trance.

    This is not possible, if left alone you would eventually just naturally wake up.

    MYTH: A hypnotised person loses their will and is completely under the command of the hypnotist.

    This belief is often reinforced by many entertainment stage hypnotists. The person on stage, who does something silly under hypnosis, is someone who wants to entertain and be the centre of attention. The power of suggestion is used in hypnosis, but it is used with your consent. You are in control of yourself and cannot be made to do anything that is against your will. If anyone suggests something that goes against your values, moral belief system, or is anyway dangerous to yourself or anyone else, it is rejected. Suggestions given by the hypnotist will not be followed if they are unacceptable to the subject.


    It can feel similar to the feeling you experience just before you fall asleep or just before waking completely from sleep.

    Hypnosis is not sleep. You may look like you're sleeping, but you're awake during hypnosis. You're just in a calm, deeply relaxed physical and mental state. Your muscles may become limp and heavy, your breathing rate will usually slow, and you may become drowsy.

    Some people say it feels like daydreaming. You remain aware of what you're doing and what's being asked of you.  If you don't want to do something you're asked to do under hypnosis, you won't do it.


    Hypnotherapy can improve the quality of your life by changing unwanted attitudes, perceptions, habits or behaviours.

    It can help with a wide and varied range of conditions and behaviours such as weight loss and negative eating patterns, improve confidence and self-esteem , release phobias and fear, manage pain, reduce stress and anxiety, resolve childhood traumas, relationships and insomnia. It can assist to stop nail biting, stop smoking and control addictions such as alcohol, drugs and gambling.

    Hypnotherapy can also play an important role in helping someone to overcome limiting beliefs.  Limiting beliefs are thoughts and opinions that one believes to be the absolute truth. Negative beliefs include a fear of success, fear of failure, fear of rejection, and negative self-talk such as “I can’t”, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not worthy”.

    They can all have a negative impact on one's life by stopping them from moving forward and growing on a personal and professional level.

    Hypnotherapy helps to determine what instilled these beliefs and to suggest new positive beliefs.

    With proper treatment, guidance, and therapy, people can learn to undo negative thinking patterns, that result in negative behaviours and outcomes in their lives.

    Please call to discuss whether hypnotherapy is suitable for your particular concerns.


    Your therapist will help you relax in a comfortable setting. They’ll explain the process and review your goals for the session. Then, they’ll use repetitive verbal cues to guide you into a trance-like state.

    Once you are in a receptive trancelike state, your therapist will suggest you work to achieve certain goals, help you visualise your future, and guide you toward making healthier decisions.

    As hypnotherapists we help to bring your subconscious mind back into alignment with what you consciously want to be doing.

    Afterward, your therapist will end your trancelike state by bringing you back to full consciousness.


    Hypnosis might not be appropriate for a person who has a psychiatric illness, or for someone who is using drugs or alcohol.
