Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis by a trained therapist to facilitate desired changes drawing on your own inner resources.
Hypnosis is a wonderfully pleasant state of relaxation, it is not sleep.
In a relaxed, peaceful state the conscious mind is less active, allowing beneficial suggestions to be given to the unconscious mind. This is the source of many problems as well as a tremendous reservoir of unrecognised knowledge. It is these inner resources that are tapped into during hypnosis in order to achieve positive changes. Hypnotherapy is a partnership between you and the therapist. The only changes made are those requested by you for your own benefit. You cannot ever be hypnotised against your will and even when hypnotised can still reject any sugestion that is not appropriate. Hypnosis is complementary to conventional medicine treatment and is a completely natural and safe way of making positive changes.There are no harmful side effects.
Hypnotherapy has, for a long time, been used to help smokers kick the habit and start afresh. By contacting your subconcious mind and looking at ways of overcoming the need to smoke, hypnotherapy is a painless, safe, and drug-free alternative to patches and medication. The Natural Health Centre has had a high success rate using Hypnotherapy for anti-smoking.
