What is Hypnotherapy?

The word Hypnotherapy is created from two words: Hypnosis and Therapy.

The combination of hypnosis and therapy working together in harmony is why Hypnotherapy is so effective.


Hypnosis is a state of focus concentration and relaxation in which you are neither fully awake nor fully asleep. In hypnosis your mind becomes open to new ideas and new suggestions, changing the way you think, the way you feel and ultimately, the way you behave.

Your Mind

Your mind is split into two halves: your conscious mind and your unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is everything you are aware of right now and your unconscious mind; your subconscious, is everything you are unaware of that makes up your decision making process.

Your unconscious mind is formed from the day you were born: your upbringing, your education, your belief systems, your values and your experiences. All of this works very quickly to make up your decision making process; to do something, to avoid something, to be in fear of something or to enjoy something.

If you think about the mind as an iceberg in the ocean. The tip of the iceberg above sea level can be compared to your conscious mind; it’s actually very small. But if you look at the iceberg beneath the sea, it is vast in comparison. That is the vast resources of your unconscious mind.

So by changing your unconscious mind you actually change your conscious reactions and your behaviours.

Will it work?

Research has shown that 93% of clients recover after 6 sessions of Hypnotherapy. This research clearly demonstrated that Hypnotherapy works faster than Behavioural therapy (CBT) and faster than Psychoanalysis and that Hypnotherapy displayed a higher percentage of success with 93% success rate.

Will I be ‘under’ and not know what’s going on during hypnosis?


Hypnosis is not about being unconscious. It is about changing the unconscious mind, which is where all your fears, phobias, bad habits and limiting beliefs are stored.

Can anyone be hypnotised?


Anyone can be hypnotised. You have actually experienced forms of hypnosis many times before. Perhaps when you’ve been driving home on a familiar route, and your mind drifts off to an occasion or an event, and you find yourself at your destination without a conscious recall. You were in a trance like state.
