Hypnotherapy: Contrary to popular belief Hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep, but in fact involves the patient/client in a conscious and enhanced state of awareness, concentrating on the therapists’ voice. The client/patient is in control the entire time. It is usually a pleasant and relaxing experience, though some hypnosis can be carried out in an alert state with the patient focused.
A wide range of problems can be treated if they have an emotional or psychological source; the most common of which, are anxiety, stress, habits such as smoking and nail biting, compulsions and compulsive behaviours, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), emotional problems, over-eating etc., panic attacks, worrying, childbirth, pain, performance (sporting, exams, etc.), skin problems, headaches, claustrophobia, bed wetting.
