The naturally relaxed state of hypnosis allows individuals to make rapid enhancements to their lives through a process of learning appropriate new beliefs, breaking unwanted habits, changing negative behaviour patterns, overcoming learned limitations and removing the root cause of your symptoms.

Yes. Hypnosis is safe because you are in control the whole time. Hypnosis has been approved by the British Medical Association in 1955 and the American Medical Association in 1958. The American Psychological Association approved hypnosis as a science in 1960.  For over 200 years prior to official recognition medical and psychological professionals were using hypnosis to benefit their patients.

A Hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything you don’t want to, even if it’s good for you.  Forget what you’ve seen in the movies and on TV, you are actually more in control of your mind & body during hypnosis than at any other time because your attention is focused. Clinical hypnosis is very different from stage hypnosis, so you will not be asked to do anything that is foolish or useless. It is impossible to get “stuck” in hypnosis. You are awake, aware, and in control the whole time.  Hypnosis requires your consent and rather than someone controlling you, it enables you to feel more in control of your own life. Stage hypnosis is entertainment, where a willing member of the audience volunteers to demonstrate the power of their imagination.

The Conscious part of our mind deals with reasoning, calculating, analyzing and remembering what we need to get through the day. The Subconscious houses all of our permanent memories, creativity, belief systems perceptions and programmed habits and behaviour. Hypnotherapy can bring the Subconscious back in harmony with the Conscious, so our experience reflects what we want, not what we are conditioned to accept.

Anyone who can follow simple instructions can be hypnotised if they choose be.  Hypnosis cannot be done against a person’s will, and is safe and effective for adults, teenagers and children. Studies conducted at Stanford University have shown that intelligence is not an important factor in determining an individual’s ability to respond favourably to hypnosis; although statistically there is some evidence to indicate that persons with higher intelligence and greater creative abilities tend to be somewhat more responsive to suggestion. In fact the ability to be hypnotised is often a learned trait. You can teach your body and mind to go into trance, and get better and better at it as you practice self – hypnosis. All hypnosis is self – hypnosis

Functional Medicine is a patient centred approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and preventing the underlying cause of chronic disease.

The FM model is all about looking to find underlying causes of an illness rather than just treating the symptoms. It is an individualized, patient-centred, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.

It recognises that the systems of the body e.g. digestive system, nervous system etc are all connected so symptoms in one system may be due to an imbalance in one or other systems so a detailed analysis is taken of a person’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and that information will direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
