What is Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy based around hypnosis. It is a state of concentration that we often recognise when we discover that we have driven a portion of a familiar journey but have little recollection of it. Even day-dreaming is a form of hypnosis.

Why Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy focuses on the outcome rather than the history of your current issue. The aim is to positively improve your situation, quickly and in a relaxing way. I might ask you about how you came to be in your current situation, but essentially hypnotherapy is a here and now therapy.
