Reiki is an energy healing therapy that was discovered in Japan around 1900. It uses the Eastern concepts of chi (energy flow) and either light touch or hovering hands to help the flow within your body. There is emerging evidence that this type of healing therapy can indeed help with fatigue, anxiety and other issues. It is non-invasive as your therapist does not have to even touch you but, instead channels their own energy and the energy of the planet to be in tune with your and help. It can be performed by your therapist in person or online.

What is Hypnosis?

To answer this question we should start with where the word originated. Hypnosis comes from the Greek word “ύπνος”, pronounced “hypnos” which means sleep. For our purposes hypnosis is a state of relaxed, sleep like hypnotic trance induced (brought about) by a professional, qualified, experienced, ethical hypnotist. During this sleep like state your unconscious mind is more open to positive suggestions to help you.  This being the actual therapy you are looking for. In other words, hypnosis is an induced state of relaxation of the body and mind used by hypnotherapists to help you change things you want to change in your life, for the better.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to aid you in making helpful changes in your life. You will get a unique, personalised hypnotherapy session here. During it a state of deep relaxation is induced or in plain English brought about. This hypnotic trance like state is close to but not quite the same as deep sleep. In this state your sub-conscious mind becomes more open and receptive to the positive suggestions that your ethical, qualified hypnotherapist will offer you. All these suggestions will be derived from your own words and ideas which you told us about in your pre-therapy intake interview.

Another way of looking at hypnotherapy is being guided into and through a dream by an experienced dream guide (your hypnotherapist). While you are positively guided through this dream your sub-conscious, also known as unconscious mind is listening, while your conscious, analytical mind is asleep. The aims will always be to help you bring about positive changes and help you with trying, stressful issues in your life. Once awoken from your dream, your sub-conscious will take on board and act on all the wonderful changes you have told us you want to make.

  1. What a great website. I have read a lot of your detailed articles and feel confident now you know about therapy. What i don’t understand is how come I had to look so hard to find you. Why on earth is this website not more appreciated than it is? You write well, intelligent yet understandable. Everything i wanted to know is explained from different perspectives here. I will be sending in my form to you soon for an appointment.
