Through achieving an altered state of consciousness in which attention is focused, hypnotherapy enables the individual to achieve specific goals. Hypnotherapy has assisted many people to improve self esteem, particularly in public speaking, and coping better in social situations; to eliminate unwanted habits such as smoking, nail biting, excessive eating; to control pain (as in childbirth) and assist in the body's own healing mechanism; to deal with trauma, including past sexual or physical abuse or those recurrent flashbacks and nightmares often experienced following severe accidents, hold-ups and natural disasters. Hypnotherapy is a very natural and highly effective form of therapy for many people; there are no side effects, you can't get stuck in it and you are fully aware and in control at all times.
