Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis
Why Should I choose Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is therapy carried out while in hypnosis and is used along with the mind’s own natural abilities, to resolve issues, relieve emotional burdens and achieve personal goals. It is a safe, effective process and involves the client and therapist working together to bring about positive changes in how they think, feel and act.
Hypnosis is a trance like, naturally occurring state of mind that can bring you into a safe, natural state of relaxation. There are many schools of thought on this, but it is generally agreed that it is a state of focused attention which uses both the conscious and unconscious mind to facilitate change. You have probably experienced hypnosis naturally thousands of times whether you are aware of it or not. Normal, everyday hypnosis occurs when you are driving down the road and lose track of time, or when you are focusing on a book or a good film – often you don’t notice what is going on around you. You are not asleep, and you are in control. It’s an imaginative free-floating and pleasant state of mind where you’re far more aware than usual but also a lot more focused
Hypnosis is an extremely efficient, scientifically proven, state of mind often referred to by artists and athletes as ‘the zone’. The naturally relaxed state of hypnosis allows individuals to make rapid enhancements to their lives through a process of learning appropriate new beliefs, breaking unwanted habits, changing negative behaviour patterns, overcoming learned limitations and removing the root cause of your symptoms.
Some examples Hypnosis can help with are:
- Weight Management
- Fears & Phobias
- Fear of Flying
- Concentration and exam confidence
Individual sessions of hypnosis are available or hypnosis can be combined with nutritional advice to optimise results. For weight management it may be more beneficial to sign up for the 12 week weight management program which incorporates nutrition and hypnosis.
Please see below for frequently asked questions on hypnosis
Is Hypnosis Safe?
Yes. Hypnosis is safe because you are in control the whole time. Hypnosis has been approved by the British Medical Association in 1955 and the American Medical Association in 1958. The American Psychological Association approved hypnosis as a science in 1960. For over 200 years prior to official recognition medical and psychological professionals were using hypnosis to benefit their patients.
Am I in Control? What about Stage Hypnosis?
A Hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything you don’t want to, even if it’s good for you. Forget what you’ve seen in the movies and on TV, you are actually more in control of your mind & body during hypnosis than at any other time because your attention is focused. Clinical hypnosis is very different from stage hypnosis, so you will not be asked to do anything that is foolish or useless. It is impossible to get “stuck” in hypnosis. You are awake, aware, and in control the whole time. Hypnosis requires your consent and rather than someone controlling you, it enables you to feel more in control of your own life. Stage hypnosis is entertainment, where a willing member of the audience volunteers to demonstrate the power of their imagination.
What is the difference between the Conscious and Subconscious Mind?
The Conscious part of our mind deals with reasoning, calculating, analyzing and remembering what we need to get through the day. The Subconscious houses all of our permanent memories, creativity, belief systems perceptions and programmed habits and behaviour. Hypnotherapy can bring the Subconscious back in harmony with the Conscious, so our experience reflects what we want, not what we are conditioned to accept.
