Hypnosis is a natural and pleasant state of mind and body which we all enter from time to time. If you have ever lost yourself in a good book or film, or realised you can't remember driving the last mile home, then you have probably been in a hypnotic state!
During hypnosis the body and the conscious mind are in a relaxed, natural state. Whilst in this state the subconscious mind can be very receptive to beneficial suggestions and will accept directions which can promote positive change. No one can make you go into a trance against your will. You will always be aware of what is happening around you and you will always be in control.
Within the subconscious mind lies our emotions, memories, our automatic body responses, habit patterns and our most deeply held beliefs about ourselves and what we believe is possible for us. It is these deeply held patterns and beliefs that drive our decisions and shape our lives and the quality of our perceptions. When we desire to make a lasting, positive change in our lives, it is these subconscious patterns that we must change. Hypnotherapy is a safe, proven and effective tool for directly accessing the power of the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is a collaborate effort with us working together in partnership to make positive changes and to achieve your agreed goals. This is achieved through hypnosis which will enable and empower you to bring about the positive changes and positive outcomes that you desire.
Hypnotherapy uses a light trance to allow your mind and body to achieve a state of deep relaxation. During this relaxed state, your mind can let go of any anxieties and enter a powerful goal-orientated and solution-focused approach. Hypnotherapy enables you to find solutions and change negative thought patterns into positive ones.
