Hypnotherapy Origins

Hypnosis has been practised through the centuries. Milton Erickson, an American Psychiatrist, who specialised in hypnosis and family therapy, stressed the importance of the therapeutic relationship, purposeful engagement of the inner resources and experiential life of the client.

Hypnotherapy attempts to access the subconscious mind to influence thoughts and behaviours. The therapist utilises a range of techniques from storytelling, metaphor or symbolism to the use of direct suggestions for beneficial change.
