I have a specialist interest in the area of hypnosis and have written many articles and teaching aids on this fascinating subject.
During my FREE Initial Consultation I will always take time to fully explain this natural process to you but below are a few frequently asked questions and a general overview of how it can help:
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe way of focusing attention on a specific issue or concern in order to move forward with our thoughts.
By harnessing this natural skill we are able to overcome past concerns and find a wealth of strength from within – a strength that is waiting to be discovered and utilised to help you change your life.
Is Hypnosis the same as sleep?
NO – a hypnotised person is not asleep, they do not lose consciousness and they are aware of their surroundings. They DO NOT hand over control to the hypnotist, or lose any ability to think for themselves. In actual fact a hypnotised person will be able to think much more clearly about their concerns, goals and ambitions and this is because they are bypassing those past subconscious patterns of thought that trigger unwanted patterns of behaviour.
A way of making permanent positive change
We master a new skill through repetition. We have all heard that ‘practice makes perfect’. The complex skills required to play a musical instrument, for sports, to drive a car, in fact every skill you’ve ever learnt becomes second nature once you have practiced and practiced some more. This is because the conscious effort soon passes into subconscious response. You don’t even have to consciously think about it to do it.
By relaxing the subconscious and practicing this new way of thinking we can create for ourselves extra rehearsal time. The more we do something the more we believe in our ability.
Clinical Hypnotherapy utilises this natural learning ability that we all possess to help create and reinforce these positive changes. For example: scoring a goal in our imagination sends exactly the same signals to our brain as actually doing so.
It could be described as a trance state whenever we focus on an idea or thought and it is this positive learning ability that we can harness through hypnosis.
By beginning to believe in ourselves and our potential to achieve those goals and ambitions we have we can make many far reaching changes in our lives and create a positive future for ourselves.
