Discover how hypnosis and hypnotherapy could help you.
What is Hypnotherapy?
If you’ve been considering Hypnotherapy to help you overcome an issue which is causing problems or holding you back in life, you may be wondering what it involves and what to expect. In this video, I talk about what Hypnotherapy is and how it can help you to make changes in your life.
The mind is like an iceberg
Only a small part of an iceberg is visible above the surface of the water and this is similar to the Conscious Mind; the part of the mind which is responsible for everyday thoughts, analysing information and making decisions.
Below the surface is the Subconscious Mind; the much larger part of the mind which deals with memories, emotions and the autonomic nervous system. It is this part of the mind that controls the behaviours and responses which make us who we are.
Hypnotherapy: Work with your subconscious mind
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural and safe state of mind in which you are aware of everything that you experience. Although often mistaken as a form of sleep, hypnosis is actually an altered state of awareness where the subconscious mind is very alert.
We all experience hypnosis, often several times a day. Examples you may be familiar with include daydreaming, travelling to work and not remembering the journey, or being deeply absorbed in a good book or film.
During hypnosis, the subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestion and hypnotherapy uses this process to suggest new thought or behaviour changes and responses. There are no specific feelings associated with being in hypnosis, because everyone experiences it differently.
Hypnotherapy involves working on a subconscious level and is often relatively rapid when compared with other talking therapies, with many issues requiring between 3 to 6 sessions, depending on you and your situation. We will discuss your situation and decide on the most appropriate therapy options for you at your first session.
