What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state that we all experience daily.
Examples of this are when we first wake up in the morning when we close to falling asleep at night. When we are daydreaming or even relaxing watching T.V.
Hypnosis is a relaxation of the nervous system. Hypnosis is a natural, safe, relaxing state of mind that we have all experienced.
When we are in this trance or Hypnotic state we are accessing a different part of our mind. This part of our mind is often called the Subconscious mind. The Subconscious mind is the part of the mind that governs our body’s automatic functions like breathing, perspiration, digestion and cell regeneration. The Subconscious also governs our habits, beliefs imagination, responses and behaviours.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the utilization of relaxation techniques to create the hypnotic state in a client for therapeutic purposes. When a client is in a state of hypnosis their Subconscious mind will be very receptive to new information and suggestions. When someone is in hypnosis and a suggestion is spoken to them from a hypnotist the suggestion will be hundreds of times more powerful then if they heard the same suggestion but in a normal wakeful state of mind. This is because the Subconscious will take information literally.
Unlike the Conscious mind, the Subconscious does not critically analyze information.
It could be said that Hypnotherapy re-educates the Subconscious mind via positive suggestions. This can have a massively beneficial effect upon how a person thinks, feels and behaves. By communicating new information to the Subconscious mind positive changes can happen to the client effortlessly and easily. Many hypnotherapy clients change unwanted behaviours without having to use willpower. This is because the changes have been re-learnt on the Subconscious level.
Clients I have worked with always enjoy Hypnotherapy and come away from the session feeling relaxed calm and refreshed. Many clients find hypnosis a valuable technique that allows them to overcome issues that have been holding them back so they can achieve their desired goals.
