Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapist in St. Albans

Hypnotherapy is best described as a natural state of relaxation and concentration, combined with heightened awareness. This means that most people are fully aware of their surroundings. Hypnosis is predominately giving information to your unconscious instead of your conscious mind. Therefore you will remain in control of the situation and will continue to receive important sensory data. In hypnosis your mind is more open to suggestion,  and allows you to make changes in your perception and future behaviours.

Hypnosis is a state almost anyone can enter if they want to, you cannot be forced into it but must want it and also must permit the hypnotherapist to enter the state of hypnosis. It can be used in many areas such as medicine, sports, and for the development of a persons well-being and can be used for many different issues from concentration to anger management to chronic pain.

Some people believe that they are unable to enter a state of hypnosis because they only feel relaxed and expect something very different however hypnosis is a state of relaxation. For example using your imagination is a mild form of self-hypnosis.

We use these therapies due to the speed they provide results and the effective, lasting changes they offer for many different issues including; removing phobias, stopping of habits (such as biting your nails or smoking), eating disorders, low self esteem, junk food addiction, obsessions, stress, public speaking, sleep disorders, public speaking, social media addiction, fear of flying to name a few.
