Hypnotherapy

WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?

Hypnotherapy uses Hypnosis to induce a deep state of relaxation, during which our unconscious minds are highly receptive to new or alternative perspectives and ideas.

The reason it’s so effective lies in the extreme power of our unconscious mind, which stores all the memories, beliefs, habits and behaviours we’ve developed since birth.

Our unconscious is primarily concerned with keeping us safe, well and happy, it usually provides us with good information to help us respond in the most helpful and resourceful manner.

However, as a result of the way we learn, from time to time it also stores and provides us with poor information, which results in many of life’s problems. From birth we learn by modeling other peoples behaviors and beliefs (many of which can be unhelpful), and we also place significant prominence on our own emotional experiences (again a lot of which can be negative) and both these conditioned and learned responses stay with us over time. This can be applied to any phobias, addictions, stresses or anxiety responses, self-esteem issues, allergies and more or less all of our other unhelpful responses in life.

The reason why hypnosis is so effective lies in the fact that it bypasses the conscious mind and creates an alternative state of consciousness during which attention is focused away from the present reality. Rather like day dreaming, attention can then be focused towards particular images, thoughts, feelings, perspectives and behaviors which will help us to change or update the information stored in our unconscious, thus changing our unhelpful habitual responses.
