Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis has been around for a long time, some people have shown images of ancient Egypt, where people can be see in a hypnotic state? So its been around for a long time. Hypnosis is defined as a heightened state of awareness, not like a lot of people think, a lesser state of awareness.

Clinical hypnotherapy is not the same as stage hypnosis. After all you would not go to a state hypnotist to stop smoking, lose weight or overcome a fear of flying? So you would not go to a clinical hypnotherapist to jump around like a chicken, like you see at stage show.
Clinical hypnotherapy has been used for a long time by famous Doctors such as Freud, that’s where the famous Freudian couch comes from. A few hundred years ago hypnotherapy was part of main stream medical training and practice. Until a man named Franz Mesmer came along in France. He used the skills he learned in hypnotherapy to develop something called Animal Magnetism and made a lot of money out of it and put the trade into the bad books.
Then it became the stuff of stage shows and funfairs, or in today’s terms college freshers weeks and pubs in Spain where you can see stage hypnosis done nightly for entertainment. That however was until the 1950’s when a Doctor called Erickson, studied and showed that Hypnotherapy can be used quiet effectively to help those with everyday issues, such as smoking, anxiety, weight loss, stress reduction, phobias plus many more day to day issues. Today it is one of the most effective ways to quit smoking or lose weight and if you visit our home page you can see the stats that show the hypnotherapy/hypnosis has been proven to be the best treatment for so many issues and can help you right now
