Hypnotherapy as a treatment it is growing in popularity because it has no negative side effects and can be used safely in all stages of life.
How does it work?
Our minds are incredibly powerful and the link between our thoughts and our physical body is undeniable. Our conscious mind can only focus on a few things at any given moment in time, but our subconscious is much, much bigger and is constantly processing the world around us and storing information away.
Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious mind to help overcome unwanted habits, behaviours, emotional and physical responses that have been stored throughout your life, whether wanted or not.
What does it feel like?
If you’ve ever found yourself drifting off mid-conversation or getting lost in a movie or a good book then you have experienced an altered state similar to hypnosis. It is a comfortable state, similar to daydreaming where you remain aware of what is going on around you yet completely at ease, undisturbed by background noise.
Contrary to popular myth, a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do and will not ‘put you under’. You are able to stop the session at any time should you wish to.
Hypnosis is achieved though a deep state of relaxation, something that you can then practice at home enabling you to be relaxed and stress free.
