Hypnosis is a tool that is used in a professional setting by a certified and trained professional hypnotherapist or hypnotist to help you change the negative behaviours, feelings, thoughts, or beliefs that have contributed to the problem that you wish to resolve. The professional hypnotherapist gives you carefully worded instructions to follow with the aim of helping you enter into a state of deep relaxation and focused attention. This process is called the hypnosis induction. For the hypnosis induction to be effective, you must cooperate and be a willing and active participant in the process.
Once you are in a hypnotic state, you are more suggestible to positive statements. By being in the hypnotic state of increased suggestibility, the mental clutter and negative thoughts that are prevalent in your conscious mind is cleared; this enables you to focus on the hypnotherapist’s positive suggestions and be open to experiencing new perspectives and solutions to your challenge. When you are in the hypnotic state, you will be aware of everything that is going on, and you will be able to recall the work that we did when you emerge from hypnosis.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” – Buddha
Much of the therapeutic work we do will be done when you are in hypnosis. Typically, 4 to 6 hypnotherapy sessions are recommended to positively effect the changes you want in your life. The work we do in each hypnotherapy session is different, and is always more powerful than the previous one! You get better and better with each hypnotherapy session, until you are completely healed.
You will also be taught self-hypnosis techniques so that you will be equipped to handle any challenges that you may encounter in the future by yourself.
