Therapy in Mind


Hypnosis is 100% safe, it is a natural state, rather like daydreaming. We all go into trance several times a day when we lose track of time driving, reading or watching TV. Everyone can be hypnotised, if they choose, it’s an ability unrelated to character, intelligence, personality or imagination.

When we are under hypnosis, depending on how deep the trance, the mind temporarily suspends the normal cognitive process of authenticating, sensory input. We are thus much more open to accept suggestions that are put to us when we are in this state.

Hypnotherapy thus simply gives us a window of opportunity to communicate directly with our unconscious mind. This is why it is so powerful at breaking unconscious habits, such as smoking, nail biting and situational anxiety, such as fear of flying.

The statistics speak for themselves:
Comparison study reported in American Health Magazine:
• Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
• Behavioural therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
• Hypnotherapy: 93% after 6 sessions

The Battle between our conscious and subconscious
Whilst we like to believe that it’s our conscious mind that controls how choose to live, the reality is that it is our subconscious that makes over 90% of our decisions for us.

Our conscious mind can only handle 6 or 7 things at any one time, so once we’ve learnt (conscious) to do something, good or bad it becomes a habit (unconscious) which is hard to break.

This is why we often struggle implementing change: in the battle of willpower (conscious) versus habit (unconscious), habit will nearly always win.

Circumvent this battle by harnessing the power of hypnosis to enable the change you desire, whether it’s to lose weight, stop smoking or drinking or simply relax. It works.

Hypnotherapy is approved by the British medical association and NICE.
