What is Hypnosis ?
Hypnosis is an artificially induced state of relaxation or altered attention, characterised by heightened suggestibility. It is a state of restful alertness, a person may experience deeply focused concentration. The person can be relatively unaware of, but not completely blind to, his or her surroundings, and he or she may be more open to suggestion. It is considered to be a type of complementary therapy.
Hypnotherapy is the application of clinical hypnosis as used within a therapeutic setting. It can be used to relieve stress-related conditions such as insomnia and hypertension, or to break health-damaging habits or addictions. It is also an effective method of modifying behaviour, overcoming self limiting beliefs and negative thinking. It can be used as an adjunct to psychotherapy.
