What is Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy is an altered state of consciousness. It is a normal, natural and pleasant state of the mind that we have all experienced at various times. At night when we fall asleep, we all pass through a point when entering sleep called the Hypnoidal Point a state of awareness, when one is half awake and half asleep, relaxed and comfortable, safe and secure, aware yet not bothered. We often experience this trance-like state in our everyday lives, for example; becoming totally involved reading an absorbing book, watching a movie or a television program, daydreaming, driving along a familiar route and realizing you do not remember part of the journey, Hypnotherapy is a relaxed state of mind. It is used by people from all walks of life to effectively change or improve many aspects of their lives.

And in this relaxed state, you are open to suggestions about modifications of your habits or behaviors. Hypnotherapy is perfectly safe.
