All About Hypnotherapy
Let us dispel the myths around Hypnotherapy.
What Is Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is a natural state between wakefulness and sleep.
Hypnotherapy is about ‘rewiring’ the mind. Many of us are held back in our lives by negative belief systems, experiences and mind programming that can block our success, health and happiness. Also barriers to change, which we may not be conscious of, can be uncovered in hypnosis and then dealt with.
During hypnosis the body and the conscious mind are in a relaxed neutral state, while the subconscious mind remains awake, alert and more receptive to therapeutic suggestions. People under hypnosis are in a state of deep relaxation (this can be likened to the state of “day dreaming”), they are conscious and able to hear the Hypnotherapist’s voice. At all times they are in control of themselves and they will not do or say anything that they would not choose of their own accord.
You can change your state of mind quickly by accessing the subconscious, which is quite open to the possibility that you are happy, confident and that you expect things to go well for you. You will wake up feeling that anything is possible for you again and that you have the power to change whatever you need too.
