Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focusing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness – reached using skilled relaxation techniques – allows the therapist to then make appropriate suggestions.

Homeopathy treats the individual as a ‘whole person’, taking account of diet, circumstances, background, mood and personality as well as the presenting symptoms. It stimulates the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural sources such as plants and minerals which are processed in such a way to raise their healing potential. They are completely safe which means that everyone can take them (including pregnant women and babies).
Homeopathy can be used to treat any illness for which medical treatment would normally be sought. Many people use homeopathy as an alternative to conventional medical treatment and others use it to complement the treatment they receive from their G.P or consultant.
