What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic benefit. People can be suspicious of hypnosis, imagining that they’ll lose control of their own actions and be forced into uncomfortable situations. In fact, hypnosis is a national and relaxing state of mind, and you can often reach a similar state by focussing completely on a film or book that you’re enjoying. Your hypnotherapist is there to guide your subconscious mind but never to force you, and you’ll be in full control at all times. You’ll feel deeply relaxed, both during and after hypnosis, and most people find the process very calming.

A lot of people who come to see me think that they have a habit or a reaction that’s really obvious and it really isn’t. For instance I’ve had people come about their social blushing, and I’ve genuinely not been able to tell even though they feel they’re bright red.
