Hypnosis (as part of therapy)

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness in which sensory input is processed in a different way for that individual at that time. It is usually accompanied by relaxation and a state of focused attention. Hypnotherapy is used by Dr Akashni to access emotional states which are otherwise not available in the conscious mind. Hypnotherapy is solely used as part of therapy (not in isolation).
