We are complementary health practitioners, not alternative health practitioners. This means that we work WITH the medical profession.

Hypnotherapy in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Falkirk
Hypnotherapy is a generally misunderstood therapy, thanks to poor films and the silly mystique encouraged by stage hypnotists. Hypnotherapy is actually the use of psychotherapy methods in a state of relaxation known as Hypnosis.
There is nothing magic, mystical, mysterious, controlling or unethical about hypnotherapy. It is simply professional psychotherapy using the state of relaxation known as hypnosis.
Hypnosis, what is the state of hypnosis used in Hypnotherapy? What can I expect in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Falkirk?
The word comes from the greek work for sleep - hypnos. It actually describes the natural state of relaxation between awake and asleep that we have come to know as "hypnosis". You go through this state every time you fall asleep and every time you wake. If you can sleep, you can use hypnosis or self hypnosis, and are able to benefit from hypnotherapy.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of a variety of therapies in the relaxed state known as hypnosis. Therefore you need to be a qualified therapist in order to use it.

uses a similar state to a hypnotic trance, only far lighter. It is
known as an "altered state" rather than a "hypnotic state" since it is
less relaxed, and indeed sometimes uses an "up" state instead. NLP is
actually not a therapy in it's own right, it is instead a modelling
tool. A number of brilliant therapists of their day were modelled by
the founders of NLP in order to try to enable recreation of their
abilities. The result was NLP. Therefore NLP is essentially an
off-shoot of hypnotherapy.
What are NLP and Hypnotherapy used for at the Edinburgh, Glasgow and Falkirk Clinics?
They can be used for their primary goal - cognitive behavioural change. In other words changing the way we think and behave in certain situations. It can also be used for dealing with past events and recovering from them.
Part of cognitive behavioural change is dealing with phobias and fears using variations of stress innoculation therapy. This makes both hypnotherapy and NLP highly effective in dealing with any irrational fear.
In the same way cognitive behavioural work, and motivational affirmations and visualisations are highly effective in making positive changes for:
