Clinical Hypnosis

Using focused awareness to manage health concerns

Clinical hypnosis is an evidence-based therapy used to help patients manage unhelpful or unhealthy habits, responses or physical symptoms.

Dispelling the myths

Clinical hypnosis is not the same as hypnosis done for entertainment. There is no "mind control." Clinical hypnosis doesn't work alone and is often used in conjunction with other therapies and treatments. For example, if a patient wants to lose weight, hypnosis can support the food goals set with the help of a dietitian and exercise goals set with the help of physical therapist or trainer.

People can't be hypnotized unless they want to be. People who come for clinical hypnosis are ready to use this therapy to help their condition. Clinical hypnosis is a complementary therapy that requires realistic goals. It should never replace medical therapy.
