shutterstock_132083303Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis with counselling, psychotherapy, and special hypnotherapeutic techniques to help change your mind, behaviour and emotions to what you would want it to be. As a tool, hypnosis is used to help you move beyond the critical part of the mind and move into the subconscious part of your mind where all of your patterns are stored. In doing so, it can help you affect change because once you move into that state you become more accepting of suggestions that can move you forward in a positive direction.
