What is Hypnosis?

We have all been in a state of hypnosis at one time or another in life. When driving a car, not remembering the journey, and arriving at your destination safely, wondering how we got there. Your mind is made up of the conscious and subconscious.

The conscious part is what we are aware of, hypnosis by passes the critical factor, and provides direct suggestion to the subconscious mind. Our brain is a neural network, like the hardware of a computer and it is reliant on the information that it receives from the subconscious.

Our subconscious provides the software for the brain, to act on. In hypnosis we are able to change the software program to attain a desired effect for that positive change.

The Hypnosis session is tailor made for you, and can last from  an hour to an hour and a half. An extensive case history is taken, followed by a mutual agreement on the course of action required to address your needs, using psychotherapy and followed by the specific therapy plan discussed.

While in hypnosis, all your senses are heightened and you will acutely be aware of all the sounds around you and especially the voice of your hypnotherapist. You will remember what is said to you and you will feel totally relaxed. You will always have free will during a hypnosis session, and maybe asked to do some homework to reinforce the positive change(s) you are making. In some instances one session will suffice, however depending on the needs of the client, more sessions are may be more beneficial.

Hypnosis moves you from the conscious mind through the critical factor to the subconscious, where suggestions are embedded and positive change can take place.
