Home / Hypnotherapy Explained

Hypnosis has been in use for thousands of years. There is a great deal of evidence to support the belief that hypnosis was being used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans for therapeutic benefit.

Hypnosis is both a state of deep relaxation and a state of heightened awareness. You remain in control and fully conscious of everything. It is a non-addictive, natural power for good. While a person is in this a deeply relaxed state, they find it easier to accept beneficial suggestions (e.g. “you are now a non-smoker”).

The are two main types of hypnotherapy practised by IAPH therapists:

1. Suggestion Therapy (sometimes called ‘Clinical Hypnosis’), and

2. ‘Pure Hypnoanalysis’ (a unique therapy only practised by the IAPH)
