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 natural and relaxing state of mind, and you can often reach a similar state by focusing 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.
