Hypnosis also referred to as Hypnotherapy. Is simply a state of concentration and focused attention. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a trained therapist using verbal repetition and visual and sensory imagery. When under hypnosis you usually feel relaxed and calm and are more open to suggestions.
Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesirable behaviors or help you cope better with stress or anxiety. It’s important to know that although your more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you do not lose control over your behavior.
