Clinical Hypnotherapyand how it can benefit your wellbeing
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural, focused state of awareness, or ‘trance’, which is used in hypnotherapy to aid personal development, problem resolution and self-healing.
- Have you ever been so involved in a task on the internet that you have lost track of time?
- Have you ever travelled from one place to another and arrived safely at your destination but not really remembered the journey?
- Or, have you ever read a book and become so absorbed in the plot you can see the scenery and hear the characters speaking?
These are everyday examples of a natural focused state of awareness, or ‘trance’.
During hypnotherapy, your conscious mind (the analytical, decision making part of the mind that we like to think is in control) relaxes, allowing us to access and communicate with your unconscious mind (the powerful, automatic part of the mind which controls your habits, behaviours, long-term memories, emotions, imagination and even your central nervous system).
Working with the unconscious mind to explore your potentials and untapped resources leads to the transformation of self-limiting behaviours and beliefs.
The use of hypnosis for therapeutic means is highly effective, especially when combined with NLP.
Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe – we all drift in and out of trance states throughout the day and we call this daydreaming!
Everyone can be hypnotised if they wish to be, though what people experience during hypnotherapy differs from one person to another. You will feel relaxed, completely aware of everything that is happening and in total control at all times.
