Why Hypnotherapy?

  • Recent research by Stanford Medicine indicates that areas of the brain that play a role in the brain’s action control and awareness centre are altered during hypnosis, leading to greater acceptance of suggestions during hypnosis.
  • Openness to suggestions created by reduced activity between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the medical prefrontal and posterior cingulate cortex.

  • Hypnosis is a genuine psychological phenomenon where you are fully relaxed but in a state of highly focused attention or concentration. Under this relaxed state, you are much more open to helpful suggestions that support your desire to make the changes you want than you would normally.
