What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is simply a state of deep relaxation and focus. It utilises the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) or “trance” state, to allow access to your subconscious mind. This is where your behavioural patterns and responses are stored.
It is during this wonderfully relaxed state where the therapist can use positive affirmations and suggestions to help change unwanted, negative patterns of behaviour and reinforce positive ones. You are fully awake at all times and are aware of your surroundings and always in control.
At any point during the session you are be able to open your eyes, stand up and end the session. The chances are though, that you wouldn’t want to, as most people report that it is the most relaxed they’ve felt in a very long time. Or ever!
The truth is, we all go into a hypnotic state many times a day. For example, have you ever driven to work and not remembered the journey? That’s a hypnotic state. Perhaps you’ve sat watching TV and found yourself staring at the screen, aware of the sights and sounds but not consciously taking it all in? That’s a hypnotic state, too.
The following lists represent some of the major areas I work with using solution focused hypnotherapy. The list is not exhaustive, so please give me a call or email me if you need further information. Please note, the client needs to be willing to work with me and some changes in lifestyle may be discussed. Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process. Generally, the more work clients put in, the faster they’ll be able to see progress.
I have significant experience working with clients to bring about positive change.
