What does Hypnotherapy feel like?

Quite simply-Deep Relaxation. Hypnosis feels like a guided meditation.We all access trance states automatically throughout our lives.  Watching TV, driving on auto-pilot and not remembering the journey and daydreaming are all examples of trance states. Contrary to popular belief, you will remain awake throughout hypnosis yet feel deeply relaxed. Women who learn and practice self hypnosis for childbirth are able to remain awake and aware throughout labour and communicate with their birth team as needed, whilst achieving a deep level of relaxation that reduces pain and fear and helps maintain a sense of calm.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

People enter trance states many times throughout the day, even as we remember events, so the process of hypnosis feels natural and easy for most people.

 In these powerful sessions we will discuss your dreams for personal change and tailor a session to suit your needs.  Your subconscious will only accept suggestions that you truly desire and are ready to embrace. Hypnotherapy uses light and deep levels of trance to allow your imagination to make changes to your pre programmed patterns of behaviour.

All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis and most people can easily achieve deep levels of trance to effect positive change.
