What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy that promotes changes in behaviour, thoughts and feelings by using techniques based on trance induction. It employs hypnosis, which puts the mind in a trance state and makes it receptive to positive suggestions that aim to affect thoughts, feelings and behaviours at a subconscious level. This changes one's perception of their current situation, unlocking their inner potential to improve their health and quality of life.
