WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy works by a hypnotherapist inducing a hypnotic state that we naturally enter on a near daily basis. Have you ever gotten out of a car and don't remember driving to your destination? That is an example of a hypnotic state.
A hypnotic state is a natural relaxed state where the conscious mind is encouraged to rest and therefore allowing the unconscious mind to be more active. The hypnotherapist then can make suggestions to the unconscious mind to change any undesired behaviours. Hypnotherapy can change unconscious habits allowing your conscious mind to break or achieve new habits.
Hypnotherapy is a tool used to help achieve your goals. Hypnotherapy is not a quick fix and it requires the will of the participant to want to change themselves. For example, I am going to quit smoking and hypnotherapy will aid me to achieve this.
Hypnotherapy is a hugely growing field and is being recognized more and more for the amazing results it can produce. It is now even possible for some GPs in certain areas to refer their patients to a registered hypnotherapist.
