Part of the purpose of hypnotherapy is to help you understand your own reactions, so that you may be more in control of your own lives by drawing attention to the importance of your inner feelings, and your body’s own natural healing capability.

This demands a high degree of willing and active co-operation your part, and hypnosis should not be regarded as a 'magic-wand' treatment by those looking for an easy solution to their problems. Anyone coming for a physical complaint should always consult their doctor about it first. Hypnotherapy should not be regarded as an alternative to conventional medicine, but rather as an aid or supplement to it.
