What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of attaining a deep relaxation or induced trance that allows for an entry into the workings of your subconscious mind. By accessing the subconscious mind, you can uncover the root cause of a problem that is recurring in your life and make positive changes. You will gain a full understanding of who you are and how you have been shaped by beliefs and experiences of your life. You will have an opportunity to “reprogram” or change sabotaging or destructive habits/beliefs and transform them into positive attitudes, healthy behaviors and affirmations for the future.
Some facts about hypnosis:
Fact– A person in a hypnotic state has full control and does not have to accept or act upon any suggestion that is contrary to their belief system.
Fact– The state of hypnosis is a natural state similar to daydreaming or meditation and can be achieved by anyone interested in being hypnotized. There is no right or wrong way to feel while under hypnosis and the depth as well as the experience itself varies widely.
Fact– Hypnosis is in no way dangerous or harmful either physically or psychologically as evidenced by its acceptance as a therapeutic technique and its widespread use by the medical and mental health professionals.
Fact– There has never been a documented case of someone remaining under hypnosis. In fact coming out of hypnosis is refreshing and relaxing to most individuals who often compare this feeling to waking up from a deep or restful sleep.
Fact– People who are hypnotized remember everything as if recalling a dream they just had. The reason that hypnosis is used therapeutically is that positive suggestions or experiences that occur while under hypnosis are processed in the subconscious yet remembered in the conscious.
