What Hypnosis isn't

Hypnotherapy has been around for thousands of years and was recognized by the ancient Egyptians for its gentle and beneficial uses in everyday society but in recent times has been used on TV program's as pure entertainment value. This cannot be further from the truth and has resulted in the common perception that when people are hypnotized they are out of control, and therefore can be manipulated to do the silly things that they have seen on TV shows. Hypnosis is NOT mind control or magic. It can not make you do anything that you do not want to do ..

So what really is Hypnosis ?

Hypnosis is a normal everyday state that everybody experiences every day, they just don't know or recognize it. We enter Hypnotic states when ,for instance, we are watching films or driving or just sometimes sat at our desk at work. Have you ever driven and reached your destination without really remembering the journey or perhaps your mind has shut out all the other sounds around you when you've been watching a film ? This is a normal state of focused attention which is exactly what hypnosis is all about. Hypnotherapists create this relaxed awareness and by using the power of positive thought and suggestion allow the individuals sub conscious mind to make its own beneficial changes to achieve the desired goal.

A client under hypnotherapy feels totally relaxed and chilled out. Many people comment on how pleasurable an experience Hypnotherapy is and whilst they realise they haven't been asleep, they have no idea of time.
