    What is Hypnosis?

    During hypnosis, the conscious client might experience a natural, relaxed state while the unconscious mind remains awake and receptive to new ideas and concepts. Hypnotherapy is a process which can facilitate the client to become congruent in their way of thinking and behaviour. It is an important tool to overcome internal conflicts.

    How does the unconscious mind accept hypnotic suggestions?

    How powerful is a hypnotherapist?
