Hypnotherapy is a branch of psychotherapy. The difference being that psychotherapists deal with the conscious mind and clinical hypnotherapists deal with the unconscious.
Our conscious mind makes sense of what is going on around us through what we see, hear, feel, taste and smell, it reacts to stimuli in both a positive and negative way.
Our unconscious mind is rather like a storage system or computer, it stores all the memories and emotions that we encounter throughout our lives, some of these can be too painful for our conscious mind to deal with and so they become buried causing internal stress and trauma. It is often more productive to explore difficult, painful emotions and experiences through the unconscious mind.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a proven therapeutic aid, recognised by the medical profession as having real benefit to patients when often treatment and drugs have failed to help. In this respect it is both a science and an art.
Hypnotherapy is a highly effective solution focused form of therapy. The treatment is holistic so that the root cause of the problem is addressed, as well as the way that you process that problem through your thoughts feelings and behaviour.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful method of helping people overcomes negative feelings, including self-doubt. This, in turn, can help people achieve their goals with much greater ease. It can also be used to treat emotional problems, which may have their origins in early childhood or have developed due to trauma and stress.
