Hypnotherapy is a beautifully natural, calming and effective way of working to change unwanted behaviours and ways of thinking. Hypnotherapy is a concentrated and relaxed state that allows the focus of a particular idea, concept or lifestyle adaptation a wonderful way of achieving the change you desire and deserve.
A hypnotic state is a sensation you already experience at least twice a day...when you are drifting off into sleep and that bit between sleeping and waking fully, you know you're not asleep but also not awake.
Our subconscious makes up around 88% of our complete mind, the conscious is around 12%. While our conscious mind analyses, thinks and plans and holds our short-term memory -our subconscious is responsible for long term memory, emotions and feelings, habits, relationship patterns, addictions, involuntary body functions, creativity, developmental stages, spiritual connection and intuition. So, in short, our subconscious mind holds all of the information that is responsible for forming our behaviours, hypnotherapy allows us direct access to this powerful part of the brain.
A trained hypnotherapist can guide a client into this relaxed state and can communicate directly to the subconscious mind with suggestions and ideas reprogramming it. While relaxed the person may appear asleep, but is actually far more open to sensations such as taste, smell, feeling, hearing.
You are fully able to communicate and have total control of yourself throughout the hypnosis. You will never be asked to do anything you are uncomfortable with, as your conscious mind would kick in and bring you out of this relaxed state.
