What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe, natural state of mind connected to physical and mental relaxation, with a selective, focused attention. Most of us have experienced to “zone out” while reading a book, exercising, playing with an imaginary friend as a child or going window shopping etc. – this is called the ‘hypnotic’ state.
This daydreaming state between sleep and wakefulness can be used in a therapeutic context. When we enter into this absorbed state of hypnosis, we can use our thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to us. We gain deeper awareness and can allow positive change to happen in our life. Hypnotherapy encourages your deeper consciousness to open, relax and find solutions to current challenges. The effectiveness of hypnosis has been beneficial for a wide range of challenges such as anxiety and phobias, depression and burn-out, traumas, lack of motivation, school problems and learning difficulties, sleeping problems and many more.
