Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation during which suggestions are made to create beneficial changes in ideas or behaviour. Today, hypnotherapy is recognised by the scientific community as an effective healing tool.
The brain has different levels of consciousness, or awareness, ranging from fully alert to drowsy to fully asleep, with variations in between. Hypnotic states occur naturally and spontaneously.
Some everyday examples include daydreaming, being fully absorbed in a task and losing track of time, doing a mundane task (such as washing the dishes) while thinking about something else, to the degree that you can’t actually remember performing the task or getting lulled into a dreamy state by boredom, for example, when listening to a dull speech. Clinical hypnotherapy deliberately induces this kind of relaxed state of awareness.
Once the mind is in a relaxed state, any therapeutic suggestions can have a great effect on attitudes, perceptions and behaviours.
In hypnotherapy, it is usual to feel relaxed, at ease, and you may well enjoy a special peace of mind. Many people comment on their feeling of comfort and security or the sensation of lightness or floating. What is particularly pleasant about hypnotherapy is the fact that it is natural and safe when used by trained professionals, and almost everyone can learn to use it by themselves and be helped by it. (Australian Society of Hypnosis, 2015).
Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment, but a very useful supplement to it.
Hypnotherapy is very useful in promoting rapid change and focuses on what you as a client want to achieve through therapy. It does not focus uniquely on the past but rather, focuses on the present and future. Changes are achieved by using your subconscious strengths and resources.
Some of the things Hypnotherapy may help you with are as follows:
Weight Loss, Anxiety, Stress, Overwhelm, Breaking Bad habits (Smoking), Fears and Phobias, Lack of Confidence and Self - Esteem, Worry, Nervousness, Fertility issues and more.
