A simpler hypnosis definition is that it is a process of securing someone’s attention and helping them to create a relaxation state. It is, therefore, a physical and mental state of highly focused concentration.

Hypnosis was used in the ancient sleep temples of Egypt and today has many uses including relaxed childbirth, the enhancement of fertility treatment, post-surgical healing the relief of chronic pain, panic, and post-traumatic stress disorder.


Hypnotherapy is the process of inducing hypnosis for a therapeutic purpose such as the effective communication of ideas that enhance motivation and change perceptions.

Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical hypnosis incorporates a range of defined and replicable methodologies within the hypnotic state. It is a brief strategic therapy.
