Hypnosis is the use of both verbal and non-verbal suggestion to assist people to enter a relaxed state of consciousness similar to the day-dreaming state.

Both hypnotherapy and hypnoanalysis invoke the use of the hypnotic state to cause changes in behaviour, or to release repressed traumas, in a way that is not possible in the normal waking state. These changes in behaviour are related to specific unhealthy conditions which may be troubling the subject such as:
  • Compulsive Habits Stress
  • Smoking Phobias and Traumas
  • Addictions Self-confidence
  • Overeating Public Speaking
  • Weight Depression
  • Worry Performance Improvement
  • Anxiety Allergies
  • Degenerative Conditions Pain Management 


Suggestion Hypnotherapy is used for applications such as relaxation and stress management, confidence-building, stopping smoking, raising self-esteem, public speaking, taking examinations, past life regression, degenerative disease symptom management, and other similar treatments.

The Hypnotic State

One of the most widely known and common misconceptions is that when one is hypnotised consciousness is lost. Due to this misconception, persons who need and desire hypnosis fail to utilise its benefits. This misconception impairs their confidence and makes it more difficult for the subject to obtain the necessary or desired results.

At every level of hypnosis, even the deepest possible state, the person being hypnotised is always completely aware of all of his surrounding circumstances. At no time is the person unaware. The greater the depth, the greater the awareness, and the better the therapeutic results. Because of this there is an increased attention to the hypnotist’s suggestions. One of the greatest difficulties for a hypnotist is to convince the subject that he or she has been hypnotised. Over 90% of people hypnotised for the first time will deny that they have been hypnotised, and assert that the reason for this was that they were entirely aware of everything that was said and done during the hypnotic session.

It is important to understand that hypnosis is a natural process. A person in hypnosis cannot be made to do anything contrary to his or her moral or ethical codes.
