Hypnosis old

What is Hypnosis?

We all experience varying moments of relaxed concentration during each day. For example, when you are completely absorbed in an activity such as reading, watching a film or starting to fall asleep.

There is always a feeling of pleasant relaxation and being ‘switched off’ from everything around you or ‘being in a trance.’

This is how ‘being hypnotised’ feels like. You feel completely relaxed and yet if there was a sudden emergency, you could re-focus your attention and get up from your chair as usual.

Why use hypnotherapy?

If you liken your mind to a computer and your subconscious to the software, that is not serving you as you would like.

Hypnosis is used to help update and correct your ‘faulty software’ by using a relaxation process to enable your subconscious mind to be open and be more receptive to positive hypnosis suggestions.

If you have learnt a fear or a limiting belief that is detrimentally affecting your wellbeig or you want to change an unwanted behavoir, hypnosis can be used to help explore and discharge the negative part of the memory of the event.

Can everyone be hypnotised?

Yes and only if you decide that you want to be.

Some people do not wish to be hypnotised because they may feel afraid to ‘lose their control’ and be made to do things they don’t want to do. They may have heard of ‘mind control’ associated with MK Ultra used covertly to control people. This however, is used by repeating severe physical and mental trauma to completely desensitise a person. This is not hypnosis.

Your subconscious always protects you and will only consider suggestions that you really want to accept. This is why some people cannot just give up smoking unless they have a real subconscious desire to want to stop.

The experience of hypnosis is very safe.

Yes, very safe. A hypnosis session is always a consenting agreement between the client and myself that we work together. The client is in full control as to how deeply relaxed they wish to go. My role as a facilitator, is to help the client achieve access to the subconscious mind where the deep memories and thoughts reside that we can explore together. If there was an emergency, the client could just get up.

After the session the client will feel very relaxed and peaceful. Many people like the relaxed feeling afterwards as it helps to de-stress people completely. People can easily be taught self hynosis to use at home.

Hypnosis is a safe complementary treatment that has been used effectively for many years in the NHS and in dental practices to help relax people prior to medical treatments and for pain control.
