What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis has long been associated with the strange and mysterious. The truth is that hypnosis isn’t at all mysterious, supernatural or anti-religious. Without realising it you have been in a light hypnotic trance thousands of times but it seemed so natural that you didn’t notice it as anything “different”. How about not noticing chunks of a car journey, even when you are driving, or not hearing someone talking to you as you immerse yourself in a good book? These are examples of naturally occurring light trance states.
Hypnosis is not asleep, unconscious or out of control. It’s a state of relaxed awareness in which suggestions for change are acted on more powerfully than is possible in normal awareness. Conscious criticism, which blocks and limits, is suppressed. During hypnosis it is possible to change behaviour patterns, thought processes and reactions that are normally out of reach of your conscious mind.
Just about everyone is able to be hypnotized because they do it naturally without realising it! The relaxation aspect of hypnosis is of great benefit resulting in a relaxed yet energised feeling by the end of your session.
