Hypnosis is a state of trance, which is often described as a state of focused and relaxed awareness anywhere between being awake and asleep. When a Hypnotherapist assists you into a state of Hypnosis and then presents you with verbal suggestions and visualisations designed to help you in achieving any desired goal, or making any positive change; then that process is called Hypnotherapy.
