If you have ever been absorbed in a movie to the exception of everything around you or been so engrossed in a book, you couldn’t take your nose out of, or, driven on a familiar journey without fully remembering that journey. Then you have already been in a hypnotic state. Hypnosis is not as commonly thought, as a deep sleep. It simply involves the induction of a trance-like condition, when in hypnosis; the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotist’s voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind comes to the fore.
The therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the patient, that have previously been agreed prior to induction
Hypnotherapy along with all the other treatments we provide is completely non invasive, painless and enjoyable. The aim is to improve or enhance patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. When you are in hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. You will open your eyes refreshed, calm and energised
“You’re fully in control when under hypnosis and don’t have to take on the therapist’s suggestions if you don’t want to. If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state”.
“Hypnosis doesn’t work if you don’t want to be hypnotised”.
