What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal.

The aim of each session is to facilitate deep relaxation and create desired change in subconscious beliefs or behaviours. Suggestions related to deep relaxation are given to activate the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for the stimulation of “rest and digest” and slow down breathing, digestion and heartbeat. Once this desired state of relaxation has been achieved, the Conscious Critical Faculty (CCF), often described as a filter between our subconscious and conscious mind, can be bypassed.

Our belief system is stored in the subconscious mind and comprises of all the information and experiences we have had since birth. This information stored may be rational or irrational and shapes the way we think, feel and behave. A hypnotherapist's aim is to facilitate deep relaxation to bypass the CCF and use skilled communication to assist you in achieving your desired change or goal.
