THE OLDEST OF ALL HEALING TECHNIQUES
From the Sleep Temples of Egypt through the histories of ancient Greece and Rome some form of hypnosis has always been an intimate healing part of all cultures.
The actual experience of being hypnotised is very difficult to describe. Neither asleep nor awake, all Hypnotic states are characterised by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation, an altered state of consciousness into which individuals allow themselves to enter so that desired, beneficial suggestions may be given directly to the unconscious mind.
Thus, Hypnosis is a natural, effective way of making contact with the inner (unconscious) self, a source of many of our problems as well as a tremendous reservoir of unrecognised potential strength of knowledge – the forgotten assets.
Nobody can ever be hypnotised against their will and, even when hypnotised, people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate. Care should be taken not to be misguided by television Hypnosis acts which sensationalise the science.
Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe and there are no harmful side effects. When administered by a professionally trained and skilled Hypnotherapist the benefits are long lasting and often permanent.

The clinical applications of Hypnosis
Modern Hypnotherapists use Hypnosis not only for medical purposes but also as an aid for the resolution of many problems of psychological origins. It is estimated that approximately 85% of people of all ages will readily respond to clinical Hypnotherapy. It is often successful when other more conventional methods of treatment have failed.
