What is hypnosis then?
Hypnosis can best be described as a form of communication between a caregiver (the hypnotherapist) and the patient (you). While you are in a very focused, but relaxed awake state your mind is better able to hear suggestions from the caregiver. Whether the patient adopts these suggestions is still entirely up to the patient. But being in hypnosis allows patients to tap into resources and strengths they might have never known they possessed.
