Typically, people come to hypnotherapy to quit smoking, lose weight, or to address problems they have been living with for many years. Hypnotherapy will induce a relaxed and calm state of mind in order to effect positive changes in a person’s life. More and more clients are referred for hypnotherapy by their GPs as a means of addressing issues that have been outside the scope of the conventional medical path. Many clients are working in unison with a medical practitioner.
When Hypnotherapy induces the body into a deeply relaxed state, we are able to communicate with the subconscious directly, and we can effect changes in our lives in a profound, healthy and natural way. This allows the body’s self-healing potential to work fully and in harmony with our lives and with other treatments we may be already receiving. The result is the changing of old self-defeating habits and the release of emotional blockages, for example those which express themselves via anxiety, phobias, or destructive tendencies. The potential of hypnotherapy to free people from the bondage of the past and allow them to access bright, happy and fulfilled lives cannot be overstated.
