Hypnotherapy uses a safe, natural state of relaxation to communicate directly with the unconscious level of mind. That’s the 90% of the mind that we are not usually aware of. It keeps our hearts beating, the blood flowing around our bodies and generally keeps us alive without us having to think about it.
It can also take over other mental functions when necessary. If you’ve ever driven or walked some distance and suddenly realised that you were at your destination without having given the journey conscious thought it’s because your unconscious mind got you there safely.

Hypnosis is the state that you pass through between sleeping and waking. It’s a safe and natural state and you can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time you wish.
