What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis to treat habits or psychological or physical problems. Hypnosis is a state of relaxed, focused attention. It is a normal state that we all go into regularly include daydreaming, getting absorbed in a book or movie, meditating or entering a ‘flow’ state during an enjoyable activity. Hypnosis is particularly effective because the analytical conscious mind becomes less active, allowing the unconscious mind to become more receptive to suggestions and to come up with its own solutions.

Most people can be hypnotised although to different degrees.

Is hypnosis mind control?

No, you are very much in control. Stage hypnosis where you see participants doing silly things as if they are in the power of the hypnotist, is totally different from clinical hypnotherapy which is hypnosis used for serious, therapeutic purposes. With stage hypnosis, participants are carefully selected for their high hypnotisability, high compliance and willingness to act out for entertainment value. In hypnotherapy, you always have a choice to accept or reject any suggestions and you would never do or say anything in hypnosis that you wouldn’t do or say in a normal waking state.
