What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy have been used in various forms for thousands of years.

From the sleep temples of  Egypt to Sigmund Freud and the genius of MIlton Erikson to the present day with the latest cutting edge techniques.

Hypnosis is safe, natural and highly effective. 

By accessing the powerful unconscious mind, hypnotherapy can bring about rapid, lasting change. Often where other therapies have been less successful.



Hypnosis. The key to your unconscious.


Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that allows you to harness the limitless potential of your unconscious mind




Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness. It's a state which individuals allow themselves to enter so that a skilled hypnotist can give beneficial and positive suggestions directly to the unconscious mind. Everyone experiences hypnosis differently, you can't do it wrong. Only your way is the correct way.  Some people stay in a light hypnotic state, some will go into medium state of hypnosis and some reach the deepest levels of hypnotic trance. Contrary to popular belief someone in hypnosis always retains control and they cannnot be made to do anything against their will. 

 Under hypnosis, the conscious, critical part of the brain is bypassed, and the uncounscious is accessed where the indivdual becomes suggestable. Suggestibility doesn't mean one is gullible. It simply means they are more open to new ideas and so beacome receptive to positive change. 



People are not treated with hypnosis but rather theated in hypnosis. This is where the hypnotherapy part comes into play. It's relatively easy to hypnotise an indivudual but to know how to treat someone for an issue, safely and effectivley takes and enormous amount of training and expericence.

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat vast number of issues from anxiety to pain control and when practised by a qualifed hypnotherapist it is safe and extremely powerful.

Because suggestions are given to the unconscious mind, it is often the case that many issues can be resolved in a much shorter time scale compared to other therapies. 

Hypnotherapy can seen as a set of keys where the therapist will skillfully choose the correct ones to use and thus unlock any barriers to change and so release the full potential of the individual. 

Alpha & theta


Normal states of consciousness i.e. sleeping, dreaming, or being awake, can be detected in brain wave patterns. 

Hypnosis can be experinced as light, medium or deep.

An individulal in a lighter trance is experiencing alpha brain waves, similar to day dreaming, being absorbed in a film, reading a book, or  arriving at your destination after driving there but reacalling little of the journey.

Those who move to the deeper levels of hypnosis are producing theta waves. 

It really doesnt matter what level the indivividul reaches as long as the hypnotherapist is skilled in recognising which depth that has beep reached. 

The trance state is therefore a natural phenomenon and as such when clinical hypnosis and hypnotherapy is practised by a highly qualified and experienced hypnotherapist it is completely safe.


 Hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a long history of being used in the UK.



The medical use of hypnosis was first approved by the British Medical Association in 1892 and then again in 1955. The use of medical hypnosis  was popularised by surgeons and physicians like James Esdaile John Elliotson, and researchers like James Braid who discoveredboth the biological, mental and physical benefits of hypnosis. 



Hypnotherapy can trigger positive change when practiced by a skilled and experienced hypnotherapist. Matt always likens one's mind to a giant sat nav. Extremely powerful but useless unless we show it what we want. Far too often we programme the sat nav of our minds with what we DON’T want. “I dont want to be scared, I dont want to be worried, I don’t want to fail that test." The mind will then show you what you don't want. It will show you failing the test, you then interpret this as real and in turn fire off all the stress responses that accompany the images in your mind. You cannot NOT think of something, For example do NOT think of the next sentence, do NOT imagine it, ok? Do NOT think of an elephant with a monkey on its back playing a drum. You thought of it didn’t you? You had to. If I had never mentioned the elephant you wouldn't have brought it into you mind. You brought it into existence by trying NOT to think of it. So, now imagine the power of programming what you DO want into you mind. Showing yourself what you DO want rather than what you don’t. With hypnosis and hypnotherapy, this is made easier by bypassing the critical conscious mind and accessing the unconscious mind so that beneficial, healthy, positive suggestions are seeded and take root helping you to make the changes you want to make.


Matt often hears the question: What if I can't reach a deep level of trance?  The good news is that deep trance is not needed to treat the vast majority of conditions. Some people do not go any deeper than closing their eyes and feeling comfortable, yet still achieve the same therapeutic results as those who are capable of the deepest (somnambulistic) levels of trance. Just a willingness to follow some simple instructions is all that is required.


Hypnotherapy is an extremely powerful therapy that Matt has used to help thousands of individuals let go of habits, reach their goals, heal from trauma, break negative loops and has treated everything from anxiety to zoophobia. Get in touch today to see how Matt and hypnotherapy can help you.
