“Questions are the answer”
What is Hypnotherapy?
Have you ever had the experience of driving home while being preoccupied by something and suddenly realising that even though you have arrived safely at your destination, you can’t recall driving past familiar landmarks? It’s as if you were on automatic pilot. That’s driving trance.
Have you ever stared into space, thinking of nothing, and been unaware of the passage of time?
Have you ever had the experience of reading a novel or watching a film and being so absorbed that you forgot about your surroundings, almost living the story? That’s TV trance.
What happens in hypnosis?
When in hypnosis, the conscious mind (Daytime Brain) is bypassed. Hypnosis allows people to tap into the vast amount of information that lies in the subconscious (sometimes referred to as the unconscious) mind and make positive changes to thought patterns, habits or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Dr Milton Erickson, a leading American hypnotherapist, described the process of clinical hypnosis as “a free period in which individuality can flourish”.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
A common myth about hypnotisability is when a person says, “No one could hypnotise me, and I’m too strong minded”. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to. So strong-minded individuals are really good candidates for hypnosis provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.
