What Is Hypnosis?
It’s not like what you see in the movies. Hypnosis is a completely natural state that most people fall into almost every day. For example, when you drive a regular journey you may sometimes arrive at your destination largely unaware of your trip. That is because your conscious mind has been thinking about other things and in the meantime, you have driven flawlessly. Your subconscious knows everything, including your journey and how to navigate you safely to your destination. Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness where you are awake and aware.
Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention, and, even though it is 100% natural and normal, it remains one of the most fascinating phenomena of the human mind. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration and change. Hypnosis, called by different names in different cultures and times, has been recognised for thousands of years and used for many purposes.
When you enter into the absorbed state of hypnosis, you can use your thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to you. With my guidance, you can develop innate, individual abilities that enable making desired changes in thoughts, feelings and behaviours possible. For reasons that are as yet not clear, the focused state of hypnosis allows changes to intentionally be made “automatically”, changes that we could not ordinarily consciously make. I use hypnosis in the treatment of pain, depression, anxiety, stress, habit disorders, and many other psychological and medical problems.

Can Anyone Be Hypnotised?
Some people find it easier to relax than others. By the same token, some people are able to go into trance more quickly and more deeply than others. About 85% of people can go into at least a light trance. For most therapeutic goals, light trance is enough to enable almost everyone to benefit from hypnotherapy to some extent.
What’s The Difference Between Clinical Hypnotherapy And Hypnosis?
My diploma is in Clinical Hypnotherapy, which is hypnosis with all the trimmings. I am experienced in working across a vast range of areas including smoking cessation, weight loss and stress relief, as well as more complex topics such as trance work, hypnotic pain management, mind-body issues, and more. Scroll to the bottom of this page for a full list.
I Don’t Think I Was Hypnotised – I Heard Every Word You Said!
Some people don’t believe that they were hypnotised at all. This likely comes from misconceptions about just what a ‘trance’ really is. There are differences between the brain waves of people who are asleep and those who are in trance. In practice, you will find that you can talk with the hypnotist, ask and answer questions, hear everything that is said very clearly, and are perfectly well aware.
Will I Lose Control Of Myself?
No, there is no loss of control. Hypnosis allows you to be more focused and less distractible and more skilful in using your own mental abilities constructively. Hypnosis is a way of giving yourself what you want and to stop working at cross-purposes with yourself; the end result of the session is you have more control of yourself than ever before.
