Uncertainty and fear are the biggest factors dissuading potential clients from being permanently and effectively treated for a full range of problems and addictions.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state of complete relaxation within the physical body and heightened awareness within the mind. This occurs naturally in everyday life and is very similar to the trance-like feeling you have when daydreaming. As you enter the hypnotic state you become less aware of your surroundings and you become more acutely aware of your inner feelings.
Within this world of mental calm you can automatically direct your attention, to the agreed suggestions of the hypnotist. The subconscious feeling mind is more receptive to these suggestions and will help you to effectively break the habit pattern.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis in bringing about a desired change. Mutually agreed positive suggestions are put into your subconscious mind whilst you are in a relaxed state of hypnosis. You will never be out of control or do anything you disagree with or which is against your moral or ethical code.
What if I cannot be Hypnotised?
Anyone can be hypnotised if they want to be. However, a therapist would never attempt to hypnotise those intoxicated by alcohol, drugs, or those with a psychiatric condition.
How does Hypnosis work?
Through the power of suggestion. The therapist facilitates change by placing positive suggestions into your subconscious mind and you act upon them.
What does being Hypnotised feel like?
During hypnosis you will feel pleasantly relaxed. Some people report feelings of ecstacy. Most people express a feeling of ‘waiting for it to happen’ and commonly think they will be in a deep asleep. In fact you are in a state of heightened awareness; you are not asleep and are in full control throughout and can wake from the hypnotic state whenever you choose.
Is Hypnosis Safe?
Absolutely. Hypnosis is a 100% natural state; everyone has been in a trance of varying degrees on many occasions throughout the day. It is not possible to become stuck in a trance because you, the client, are always in control, although you may feel so comfortable that you may decide to remain in a trance a little while longer. No one can stay in a trance indefinitely; if the therapist were to stop talking for a while, your bodily functions would eventually arouse you. The worst thing that can happen is that you may become so comfortable that you actually fall asleep.
