What Is Hypnotherapy?
'You use Hypnosis not as a cure, but as a means of establishing a favourable climate in which to learn'
Milton H. Erikson
Hypnotherapy is the treatment of certain conditions through the use of Hypnosis. It accesses your subconscious mind and adjusts unwanted behaviors or habits.
What is the Subconscious Mind?
We all have a subconscious, it's the part of our mind that makes decisions without us having to consciously think about them. A good example is breathing, an action we all do without having to think about it. However not all the thoughts and reactions our subconscious creates are wanted. Hypnotherapy uses positive suggestions to amend our subconscious behaviors.
How is the Subconscious Mind Changed?
Hypnosis helps you to reach a deeply relaxed state. It's much like the relaxation you'll experience just as you fall asleep. In this deeply relaxed state your conscious mind gives way to your subconscious and the Hypnotic suggestions can be given. You remain conscious at all times, and you will always be in control.
How Does Hypnotherapy Create Change?
During the initial consultation we will have explored your reason for seeking Hypnotherapy in detail. We will have uncovered the cause of your unwanted behavior / habit. This then allows me to pinpoint this exact behavior in your subconscious; I'll use a series of positive suggestions to replace the unwanted ones. Exactly what those suggestions will be and how they are said is tailored to you as an individual, and we would of agreed what these are together as part of the initial consultation.
Does Hypnotherapy Work?
Hypnotherapy can work for any learnt behavior, reaction or habit. You have to believe it will work otherwise your conscious mind will stop me from being able to access your subconscious and create the change.
