Hypnotherapy works through you opening up your relaxed state of mind or trance-like state (such as when you daydream), so the therapist can get to the root of the issue through your subconscious mind.
When you’re focused like this, and in a deep state of relaxation, it’s much easier for you to see things from a different angle. The hypnotherapist will work through different hypnosis techniques, tools and activities to get to the root cause, and change your mindset.

How to Prepare for an Online Hypnotherapy Session
