Registered Hypnotherapist. This is a therapy that uses guided meditation, where your conscious mind becomes more narrowly focused, placing you in a hypnotic state. The hypnotic state is similar to our everyday daydreaming state. The brain waves cycle down from beta to alpha and/or theta waves when one is in a hypnotic state. This enables the therapist to talk to the subconscious mind rather than to the conscious mind, by anchoring suggestions into the subconscious.
