The clinical application of hypnosis assists clients/patients to resolve provblems which may arise from habits, medical and psychological problems.  By guiding you into a state of relaxation, hypnotherapy can help you access your subconscious mind to bring about positive change.  It can help you reach your personal goals that were previously out of your reach.  The effectiveness of hypnotherapy is in direct proportion to your wish to change.


Hypnosis is becoming more accepted as a therapy for many emotional and mental problems where the use of medication is sometimes felt to be inappropriate or could possibly result in unpleasant side effects.

Clinical Hypnotherapy uses the advanced techniques of hypnosis along with other approaches including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), imagery and visualization, language and metaphors, Psychodynamic therapy (Regression), and counselling skills.
