Have you ever wondered what hypnotherapy is and if it could help you?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. Whenever our mind wanders, daydreams or is focused on something, such as reading a book or driving a familiar route we are in a state of hypnosis.  Recent research through brain scans shows that brain waves of a person in a hypnosis is similar to meditation.  Working with a hypnotherapist is like having a guide, giving you positive suggestions to reach your goal, whilst in this natural relaxed state.

Hypnotherapy is recommended as a treatment for IBS. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) lists hypnotherapy as one of the treatments to help with IBS.  Research has shown 60% of IBS sufferers who undertook hypnotherapy saw long term improvement, or complete disappearance of symptoms.

In 2014 research in Switzerland should that people who had difficulty sleeping achieved an 80% improvement in the quality of their sleep following a series of five hypnotherapy sessions.

With all things if you want a change in your life, the change has to start with yourself.  Hypnotherapy may be something that helps you achieve that positive change.
