Hypnotherapy is where you are guided by a hypnotherapist into a trance-like state of mind, and suggestions are acted upon in a more powerful way than under normal conditions. Conscious criticism is suppressed in hypnosis. Levels of awareness on a focal point are much higher than when awake. In hypnosis you can control areas of yourself that are out of reach of your conscious mind. You can make positive changes in chemical, physical, psychological and emotional parts of yourself.
