What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of mind that allows you to totally focus without any distractions. Have you ever been deep in thought while driving, when suddenly you’ve arrived at your destination? Been so focused watching TV or reading a book that you didn’t hear someone calling you? Do you often find yourself day-dreaming? That’s what being in hypnosis feels like.
Hypnotherapy is the use of the hypnotic state to make positive changes in one’s subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy can help you to eliminate undesireable habits. It can also help you to relieve stress and achieve your goals - much more easily than you would likely be able to using only your conscious mind and "will power". It has been used for hundreds of years to help people with a wide variety of mental and physical challenges.
It can also help you to…
– reduce fears, phobias and anxieties
– improve confidence and self-esteem
– improve self-motivation
– accelerate healing
– as well as a variety of other issues and ailments…
How Hypnosis Works..
and will I remember?
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 and make positive changes in your 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 relaxation techniques, visualizations, scripts, and "posthypnotic suggestions”.
All client sessions are recorded and you will be given a copy of the audio portion to take with you. Alternatively, the audio recording can be emailed to you or loaded onto a data stick.
You will have full recall of the session. That is one of the "posthypnotic suggestions" given to all clients before counting them back out of hypnosis. After all, the better you recall the session, and the more you review your recording, the more effective the session will be.
Imagery is often used in working towards achieving goals such as smoking cessation, as well a number of common fears and phobias. Images are easy to remember.
