How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy works by interacting directly with your subconscious mind to create lasting change. Hypnosis is a trance -like state and everyone has the ability to enter into a trance. Every day, people slip into natural trance states when they become absorbed in watching television, or reading a book, using computers or even driving. Hypnotherapy works by introducing people to a state of deep relaxation that then gives access to the subconscious mind. Here all your memories, habits and fears are stored making you the person you are today, but it also is the reservoir of your mind’s untapped resources. In hypnosis we can free these resources and make redundant the old patterns which were holding you back. Your therapist will use his voice to induce you into the state of hypnosis. You are unlikely to feel hypnotised as such. You will probably experience a feeling of mental and physical relaxation and your memory will be enhanced. When you are in hypnosis the critical part of your conscious mind is dampened (that part of you that is so good at telling you what you can’t do!), so your subconscious mind is able to receive and act upon life enhancing suggestions.
Commonly asked questions
What is hypnosis?
A state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion. It is a non-addictive power for good and is a natural manifestation of the mind at work.
Are there some people who cannot be hypnotised?
Everyone who wants to be hypnotised can be hypnotised, although the depth of trance will vary with each person.
Could I be influenced to do anything against my will or nature?
You cannot be made to do anything against your basic belief system while in hypnosis. You can come out of hypnosis at any time by simply opening your eyes. Therefore YOU are always in charge.
Shall I be aware of what is happening?
Yes. Although you will feel extremely relaxed you will be fully aware of everything. You may end a trance at any time by opening your eyes. You cannot get stuck in trance. You may fall asleep while in trance, but when you awaken, you will be out of trance.
There are two entirely different treatments using Conscious hypnosis.
Which is used for simpler problems such as smoking, nail-biting, exam nerves, slimming, relaxation, confidence boosting, public speaking etc., and which require only 1-3 sessions. Clients are given a free personalised CD for further reinforcement at home.
Which is used to discover CAUSES of psychological problems. Hypno-analysis can be summarised briefly as the doctrine of cause and effect, every effect (the symptom) must have a cause. Hypno-analysis reveals that cause and provides a safe and therapeutic opportunity to release it. A complete and lasting release can very often be obtained by finding and removing originating causes – as opposed to merely control of symptoms.
