When asked about hypnosis, most people will recall some theatrical stage show where they witnessed weird and wonderful behaviour going on by some unfortunate volunteers. However, little is known to the public about the positive power of hypnosis when it comes to assisting people with major concerns such as stress, trauma, phobias, anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, stage fright and many more personal and some time debilitating issues. When used as therapy, hypnosis can bring about incredible behavioural change and correct limitations that hold people back from a life well lived.
Fear is a natural response caused by real danger. For example, we are all scared of coming face to face with a wild, hungry animal, and fear is a survival instinct which warns us against certain things or situations. A phobia, on the other hand, is an irrational fear of an object or situation that causes little or no danger.
Anxiety and anxiety-related conditions are the most common psychological afflictions of man and account for a major percentage of initial complaints to psychiatrists as well as to general practitioners.

"Why does this always happen to me?"… Is a more common question than you can imagine. Life works in cycles, which are essentially self-similar patterns repeating over and over again. We can see this clearly displayed in the cycles of the moon, the changing of the seasons, a typical calendar year, the great migrations in nature and so on. So what does this have to do with the average person?… Well, pretty much everything to be blunt.
