Clinical Hypnotherapy is best described as a deep state of relaxation, a state similar to that dreamy time just before sleep comes. When your mind and body are so very relaxed. In this state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness you are highly responsive to suggestions as the conscious, thinking mind is by-passed.
It must be pointed out you are always in control as no suggestions or instructions will contradict your personal moral code. Clinical Hypnotherapy is suitable for everyone and is very useful in helping you manage every day stresses and strains and is not just for those struggling with emotional issues or trauma.
There are different methods of employing hypnosis therapeutically;
1. Suggestion Therapy

Whereas Hypnoanalysis is used to source the root cause of a presenting problem or issue and treating it with psychotherapeutic techniques whilst in hypnosis, this increases the deep long term benefits and gains.
