What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is an artificially induced daydream-like state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to suggestion. In this state we can harness the power of our mind, the part of our mind that controls all our bodily functions, and stores our memories, thoughts, behaviors, beliefs and habits. Hypnotherapy combines elements of counseling in conjunction with mental exercises and suggestion in this trance state to help people bring about positive change in your life.
What does Hypnosis feel like?
Most of us know the feeling of daydreaming or that pleasant feeling of relaxation just before sleep. Most people describe the hypnotic state as feeling much this way, although we are all individuals and everyone’s experience is a little different. In many cases a client will report feeling very peaceful and optimistic after coming out of trance.
Why should I use hypnotherapy?
If everything could be resolved simply by will power the world would be a happier place. Unfortunately many of us have tried to change our ways and no matter how determined we are we often backslide. In hypnosis your therapist will address your subconscious mind.This is the part of your consciousness where all your bodily functions are managed every moment of every day. It is also the home of all your beliefs and memories. Too often when trying to make a conscious effort to bring change we are held back by deeper beliefs that lie within our unconscious.
What if I don’t wake up?
It is possible to fall asleep during therapy but should this happen your therapist will gently help you to awaken. If you were to remain asleep you would simply wake up in the same way you normally would.
What can I expect from my session?
The first appointment is generally 90 minutes. We begin by taking your personal details, family tree and medical history. Then your presenting issue will be discussed in a detail and a treatment plan is developed. Most sessions finish with a hypnotherapy treatment but you may find some treatments can be peformed without trance. Follow up sessions are generally 60 minutes.
