What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?

Clinical Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of the state of hypnosis by a qualified practitioner, such as Coach With Katy, in a fully supportive environment. It is entirely different to stage hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a state of deep attention on a specific, narrow focus. If you have ever been lost in a book or a movie, you have experienced hypnosis. It is a state of trance like consciousness, which simply means awareness, in which you are beautifully relaxed allowing your mind to be more open.

Importantly, hypnosis is a state of mind where the malleability of your brain is most heightened which means making change is at its easiest. Our brains are not hardwired, we can change our habits and thoughts; relatively quickly and easily.

When we apply our focused attention to an issue that has until now challenged us, in the context of hypnosis, we are empowered, there are few distractions and greater choice in how we want to feel and behave.
