Hypnotherapy, is a form of hypnosis that uses guided relaxation, focused attention and intense relaxation to achieve a sense of deep calm wherein a person’s attention is narrowed down and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist. Hypnosis is often used as an adjunctive technique to help people with a variety of issues, such as quitting bad habits or coping with anxiety and depression.

Hypnotherapy can be helpful when someone is feeling ‘stuck’ in dealing with a particular problem. It's often used to shift habitual thought patterns, such as self-criticism-or to change behaviors, like exercise or diet. It’s valuable in transforming emotional states, such as overcoming depression or building confidence. Clients usually feel very peaceful and uplifted after a hypnotherapy session.
