What is Hypnotherapy?
“Hypnosis is an education and communication process by which the conscious mind and the unconscious mind agree. “ - Dave Elman
Hypnosis is a very relaxed state of mind and body or a trance like state where the unconscious mind and the conscious mind are able to work together to help facilitate the changes the client desires.
How Does It Work?
With the help of the therapist hypnotherapy is able to bypass the conscious critical thinking mind and access the sub conscious mind that holds all the resources we need to achieve the changes we desire. During the hypnotherapy session suggestions are made that are specific and individual for the client that will assist in changing beliefs and thoughts which leads to learning new and different behaviours.
Can I be Hypnotised ?
Anyone can be hypnotised - if they want to be. You will never accept a suggestion under hypnosis that your belief system doesn't accept or agree with, so in other words you can't be hypnotised to do something that you don't want to do. Hypnotic trance is a natural and normal state that we all enter into many times everyday. It's much like being so absorbed in something you are doing like reading or watching a great movie, you can hear background noise, voices etc, but you just don't pay them any attention.
