If you have ever daydreamed you have been in a hypnotised state. A huge misconception is that when people are hypnotized they are put to sleep and are under the control of the hypnotist.

The Hypnotherapist works ideally within the Alpha state of mind where the brains cycle operates between 7-14 cycles per second, rather like daydreaming or being in deep meditation. While working with your Therapist you will be totally aware of what is happening around you. The Beta state of mind, our normal conscious mind operates from 14 cycles per second upwards. Hypnosis can’t make you do anything you don’t want to do, including stopping smoking. There must be a will, then there is a way!
