How does it work?

Hypnosis works by giving you the subconscious tools to free yourself of any bad habits, or to relieve fears and anxieties for good.

A common misunderstanding about hypnosis is that the hypnotist ‘controls’ the thoughts of another person.

During any hypnosis session, you are always aware of what is going on and will always be in control of your own body and mind.

The role of the hypnotist is to simply serve as guide, enabling you to access and make use of parts of your visual and subconscious mind.

The hypnotist’s work is designed only to…

– relax you

– focus your mind

align your thoughts with the objective of the session

This is done through the use of hypnotic “suggestions”.

Hypnotic suggestions are a “script” that the hypnotist has chosen to use for your specific condition.

These scripts are the reason for the high success rates achieved with hypnosis and are tailored to your needs.

The suggestions the hypnotist makes throughout the session are approached by your mind as if reality instead of imagination.

So when the hypnotist suggests that your left foot is becoming very heavy, like a weight on the end of your leg, particularly receptive clients may experience a corresponding physical sensation to further enforce this suggestion.

This is why imagery is often used in working towards achieving goals such as smoking cessation, as well a number of common fears and phobias.
