Hypnotherapy assists you to make long term positive changes. The hypnotic state is experienced differently by different people, for some it may feel like a daydream and others they feel like they have gone to sleep. Any level of trance is conducive to the therapy process as when you feel relaxed you are more responsive to positive suggestions. If you have ever felt relaxed then you are capable of being hypnotised.
Hypnotherapy can involve changing your perspective through your use of language, applying coping strategies or completing guided visualisation. It requires you to be actively involved in the treatment process, for example completing homework tasks and listening to audio recordings.
My approach to therapy is holistic so I use a variety to strategies to fulfil your specific needs.
