Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis that treats emotional and psychogenetic problems
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is neither asleep nor awake, all hypnotic states are characterised by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation.
When you experience hypnosis you often feel extremely relaxed physically, your body may feel as thought it has gone to sleep and you often keep very still. The conscious part of the brain is turned down and the subconscious part of the brain is more active.
Hypnosis also enhances your ability to be imaginative and to process information differently. These abilities are to help you to address problems successfully.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Hypnotherapy is also an effective way to change unwanted patterns, limiting beliefs, old traumas, fears and negative behaviors. By accessing the subconscious mind, which controls 90% of our behavior, we can change our negative beliefs and habits and replace them with new, healthy and empowering ones. Even illness, pain or irregular body functions can be improved or eradicated.
Hypnosis with the client's permission, changes the way the brain interprets experiences, changing perceptions, thoughts, behaviours and feelings as suggestions are offered to the unconscious mind within a hypnotic state.
Hypnosis can be used to overcome issues safe and gentle way.
How the mind contributes to physical symptoms
The mind and body are intrinsically linked through chemical messages which are produced in the brain and body in response to emotions, feelings, thoughts and beliefs. Thoughts can create physical changes.
