Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation within the body and a state of heightened awareness within the mind.
A common misconception regarding hypnosis is that you will be
asleep and not aware of anything going on around you, but in fact
the opposite is true.
During hypnosis you are in an altered state of consciousness where changes can easily be made to induce healing, increase self-awareness and access many more positive assertions. It allows you to accept certain thoughts that will be positive and beneficial to you, which in turn change your attitude. In this way, you can do the things you want to do with new clarity and confidence.
As you enter the hypnotic state you gently and easily drift into deep relaxation and the mind becomes more acutely aware and sensitive to your inner feelings.
What actually happens during hypnosis is a gradual and natural shift from left-brain to right-brain dominance. This is important, as it quiets the left brain´s logical, analytical inner critic. There is also a significant slowing down of brain-wave activity from a normal waking 30 to 40 hertz, or cycles, per second down to high theta ~ low alpha, 7 to 8 cycles per second. There is also a shift from cortical to subcortical functions, where you can have more control over mind/body functions.
In this deeply relaxed therapeutic state the subconscious part of the mind is more receptive and therefore able to respond to outside stimuli and suggestions.
The suggestions are your conscious desires, to reprogramming an old or unwanted behaviour pattern or creating a new, positive one. You will never act upon any suggestion that you do not agree with, as you are fully aware and in control throughout and could easily stop the session at any time.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe, with no harmful side effects. It is a comfortable, respectful and therapeutic way of helping with a wide range of personal issues including:
Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
Fear of Flying
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Public Speaking Nerves
These are just some examples that can be effectively treated.
