Much modern day mental and emotional distress and even some physical illness can be traced to underlying anxiety, tension and stress arising out of an imbalance between our cognitive or conscious beliefs and desires, and the beliefs and desires we hold below conscious awareness in the sub-conscious mind.

Modern Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful form of Psychotherapy combing cognitive therapeutic counselling techniques with subconscious healing techniques.

What does a Hypnotherapist do?

The old image of a man with a beard dangling a watch or a crystal in front of your eyes and taking control of your mind is just a myth made up for comic books, movies and TV.

Being hypnotised feels just like being very relaxed. Modern hypnotherapists will simply assist you to become so deeply relaxed that, with a little guidance, you can begin to make the changes you want to make to your automatic behaviors and/or emotional reactions so they become positive for you instead of negative.

Clinical Hypnotherapy can assist you to come into conscious awareness of your sub-conscious beliefs and desires and thus enables you to begin to understand and redress any imbalance between the two, resulting in reduced feelings of stress and anxiety and increased feelings of calmness and positive energy.

Clinical Hypnotherapy has been used widely and successfully for many years for the relief of a number of problems and conditions.
