So what is Hypnotherapy? What about all the myths that have been built up around it; I aim to alleviate some of these myths and tell you what Hypnotherapy is NOT, as well as what it IS.

What IS Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When under hypnosis you will feel very relaxed, just like that wonderful feeling when you are tired lying in your bed and you are so overcome with comfort that you wish the moment could last forever. Through simple hypnotic, relaxation techniques you can easily attain this state at which time it becomes easy, with the help of a trained hypnotherapist, to visualise yourself becoming healthier, happier, more confident, a non-smoker. Whatever it is that you want to be!

What IS Hypnotherapy NOT?

Hypnotherapy is NOT sleep. You are not asleep at anytime (unless you are so tired that you fall asleep!), it is a heightened state of relaxation. You are NOT under the control of the Hypnotherapist and you CANNOT be made do something that is against your wishes/morals.

Paul Farquhar & Paul McKenna (Oct 2004)

Too many people have watched Hypnotists like Paul McKenna and think that the Hypnotist has the power to make people cluck like a chicken and perform embarrasing tasks on a stage. Be quite clear; these people have chosen to put themselves forward to do these things and all they need is expert guidance from a showman like McKenna and the stage is set. Paul McKenna once told me that the most important part of his show was the sign at the door. Paul McKennas Comedy Hypnotic Show. People knew it was a comedy, it contained hypnosis all before they walked in the door. All it need was volunteers to put their hands up and they are already pre-programmed as to what is expected of them.
