Introducing Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy and its benefits

Hypnotherapy is a wonderfully relaxing therapy. It uses a naturally occurring state that we all experience every day. During that attentive but relaxed state, beneficial suggestions are delivered into the subconscious (the creative and emotional) part of the brain, where they are more readily accepted.

In this short clip, Jo Rawlinson, hypnotherapist, explains the benefits of hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy and Physical Recovery

Hypnotherapy really is ‘mind over matter’. The body listens to what the mind tells it. During hypnosis you learn how to access deeply relaxing meditative states, and the body’s own natural healing and balancing processes. Guided suggestions and visualisations can help to clear emotional blocks held onto by the body.

Hypnotherapy and Emotional Recovery

Hypnotherapy can help you to feel calmer, sleep better, release emotions, feel more positive and move more easily through the stages of grieving. It is gentle, safe and wonderfully relaxing.

Warning: Hypnotherapy is perfectly safe for almost everybody, and effective for almost all conditions. But there are one or two exceptions. Efficacy is lowered in those of very limited intelligence, and it should be used with caution in severe psychological disorders (hypnotherapy is safe if you are experiencing depression – but best avoided if you suffer from conditions like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia).

If you are under medical super vision, check in with your doctor before embarking on any therapy, including Hypnotherapy.

Always consult a health professional before starting any exercise and listen to your body.
