Hypnotherapy is the process of being led by a trained hypnotherapist into a relaxed trance-like state, which is one that you naturally go in and out of all the time. The best way to describe the feeling of having hypnosis is that it is like being in a deep state of mental and physical relaxation, similar to being deeply engrossed in reading a book or listening to music, absorbed in your own thoughts, or carrying out an activity whilst feeling you are on automatic pilot. In this natural state of relaxation, your senses become heightened and you can access and build inner resources to enable you to create the change you want. You are in complete control throughout the whole process and, contrary to popular belief, can talk and move around when you are in a state of hypnosis.
With hypnotherapy, we are working directly with your unconscious mind and tapping into your undiscovered potential. What we know from extensive studies is that what we think, feel and remember at an unconscious level greatly influences our every day behaviour, the decisions we make, how successful we are, our self-esteem and the way we react to other people – all without us even being aware of it! So getting the unconscious part of our mind working with our conscious mind is really important to creating permanent change with the way in which you think, feel, act and react to situations. If you want to let go of old negative habits that are no longer working for you and overcome blocks then hypnotherapy will help you.
