In contrast to the common misbelief there is nothing weird or mysterious about the hypnotic state. It is a totally natural state which can be most closely likened to day dreaming or the period just before going to sleep.
Hypnosis is an inward focusing of attention through which the demands of the outside world are switched off. It is a state of deep relaxation during which the critical analytical mind shuts off, making the unconscious mind more accessible.
During hypnosis you are not asleep and nothing can happen without your consent. You can hear everything being said and afterwards will usually remember all that has happened whilst in hypnosis. Hypnotherapy as a complementary therapy, is a useful supplement to orthodox medicine and can achieve considerable success in its own right.
