What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness whereby the subject experiences deep mental and physical relaxation. This state facilitates the subconscious in communicating withconscious mind. Hypnosis allows the subject to focus intensely on a particular memory or thought without distraction. Subjects also become more open to suggestion. Hypnotherapists use hypnosis as a psychotherapeutic tool to address emotional disorders, psychological problems, unwanted feelings and unhelpful habits. It allows a person to draw on the inner resources needed to develop alternatives to ingrained habits of thinking, feeling and behaving. Imagination, story telling, metaphor, symbolism and direct suggestions are all used to aid beneficial change.
