Hypnotherapy is a guided state of self-hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focused attention and achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is very similar to other situations experienced throughout the day like being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations. In this relaxed state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilise the natural internal resources deep within themselves. When in a state of hypnosis, accessing these resources can help them make changes or regain control in specific areas of their life.
