Glasgow Hypnosis

Michael D. Yapko, author of many hypnotherapy textbooks describes hypnosis as 'a means of helping clients develop powerful resources that can be purposefully directed towards achieving their therapeutic goals'. Forms of hypnosis are pan cultural and have been used throughout history. Latterly, in western culture it fell by the wayside only kept alive by mezmerists and stage hypnotists. Although in one sense they should be thanked for keeping it in our minds, unfortunately, popular perceptions of hypnosis are based on notions of loss of control and being made to do things contrary to the will of the subject. Stage performers rely on misrepresenting hypnosis to the public as a mind-controlling instrument. Hypnosis is safe, natural and you will always be in control. High quality research has in recent years produced a substantial body of evidence to support the positive effects of treatment.
