What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a human condition involving focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. 

Hypnosis is the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction. Its use in therapy, typically to recover supressed memories or to allow modification of behaviour. 

Some individuals report feeling a sense of detachment or extreme relaxation during the hypnotic state while others even feel that their actions seem to occur outside of their conscious volition. Other individuals may remain fully aware and able to carry out conversations while under hypnosis.

Where are the sessions done?

I conduct my hypnotherapy sessions in person (if you are located in Tasmania) or via Zoom. Typically, a session is one hour.
