Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis to help people change for the better. Hypnosis is a very natural state of pleasant deep relaxation.
You always remain in control. You cannot do or say anything contrary to your conscious wishes, behaviour or morality.
Most symptoms result from conflict between the conscious and subconscious parts of our mind. During hypnosis, the active conscious part of your mind is completely relaxed. This allows you to tune into your subconscious so that therapy can work at a deeper level. This can facilitate the successful treatment of conflicts.
Counselling involves looking for ways to make things better. This provides an opportunity for you to choose alternative ways of thinking about problems, put things into perspective and discover a more creative way forward.
Sometimes it is the belief in a problem and thinking constantly about it that can intensify negative feelings and we then feel we can’t change and resolve it.
