What is Hypnosis?

It is a perfectly natural occurring state of mind. We go into a hypnotic state many times during the day. This can happen when you are driving, day dreaming and just before you go to sleep. You are always aware and will know what is being said to you at all times.

Hypnosis occurs when awareness moves from the conscious to the subconscious part of the mind. The subconscious part of the mind works to regulate our breathing, body temperature and many other things automatically and without us needing to tell it to. The subconscious part of the mind also generates and holds on to our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes these feelings can be harmful to us, have a negative effect on our day to day happiness and can stop us moving forward. I can help you to make positive changes quickly and permanently.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses the power of the mind to help heal physical as well as emotional problems. It can help uncover the underlying emotional and psychological causes to many ailments. It differs from hypnosis in that there is more interaction between the client and therapist, allowing the client to discover more about the emotional background to his or her current problems.

Hypnosis is more suggestive than therapeutic. There is no doubt that our minds and bodies work together, when one is under stress, the other suffers. We have all experienced it - blushing when embarrassed, going pale with shock, having sweaty palms when nervous. These are just small instances of the way in which our minds can affect our bodies. Medical literature is now full of studies confirming that many diseases are psycho-somatic (caused in the mind) or stress-related. Some doctors have estimated that as many as 75% of modern disorders are actually induced through stress. Fortunately the power of the mind has also been shown to be a primary factor in healing many diseases, even cancer. It is therefore important in any physical or emotional health problem not to overlook hypnotherapy on the road back to health.

Myths

People often have a fear that being hypnotised will make them lose control, tell the therapist all of their secrets and have their minds controlled. This is not the case. Many people base their fears about hypnotism on what they have seen on a stage act. Stage acts can help fuel these myths, which discourages people from getting help from a hypnotherapist.

When under hypnosis you are not under the therapists control and will not reveal your innermost secrets. You are aware of what is being said and where you are. Hypnosis is not something imposed on people, but something they do for themselves. A Hypnotherapist simply serves as a facilitator to guide you through you.
