Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to make the desired changes you desire in behaviour, attitude, performance and health
Here is a another definition
"Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness in which the deeper or subconscious parts of the mind can be accessed. The deeper or subconscious parts of the mind contain the memories, thoughts, feelings, everything that the person has ever experienced. In this state of mind the person is receptive to taking on board new ideas. Trance is the same mental brainwave state as hypnosis (as is meditation). Everyone has experienced trance. There are many natural states of trance. Daydreaming is a light trance state, and is in fact part of the natural body cycles. We tend to go into a daydream every one and a half to two hours throughout the day, although we may not be consciously aware of it because it is so natural. When you are familiar with driving a specific route in the car, you can often arrive at your destination with very little conscious memory of the journey. This is a natural trance.
What can Hypnosis be used very successfully for?
1. Hypnosis may be used to add something to your life that is missing. Maybe you would like to develop a personal exercise program but lack the motivation to do so. Hypnosis could be used to help you build a powerful burning desire to exercise.
2. Hypnosis may be used to take something away you don't want. For instance, you might be interested in stopping smoking. A skilled therapist can help you lose interest in smoking and change your self-image into that of a non-smoker.
3. It may be used to release you from irrational fears and other forms of limiting beliefs. As an illustration, suppose that you have a beautiful voice and would love to sing publicly, but are afraid of the audience. Hypnosis could be used to release you from the bondage of your fears regardless of the source, allowing you to become the person that you have always been inside.

Q: "Could I harm myself?"
A: No.When you are in hypnosis you are conscious, in control and aware of what is happening.
"When I'm in hypnosis will you make me cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog?"
A: No.You will not be made to do anything that you do not think is acceptable or which violates your own values or accepted pattern of behaviour.
"Will I tell you something I've never told anyone?"
A: Only if you want to. All sessions are confidential and you are in control at all times.
