Hypnotherapy involves the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotherapists voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed. The therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the client, the seeds of which become firmly planted. With the clients intent, beliefs can be changed, and new ways of thinking can be uploaded and implemented.

The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. When the client is in the relaxed trance-like state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute, and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated.

In Hypnosis the subconscious mind is more alert and susceptible to new powerful suggestions, hence being able to change beliefs. The Subconscious Mind is accessed through achieving an altered state which can happen naturally or be accessed through meditation and hypnosis. These new suggestions are uploaded directly to your Subconscious Mind.Hypnosis is a tool not a therapy, and as such can be used to treat any human condition as long as a persons attitude is a factor. Hypnosis can be used to achieve and facilitate desired outcomes in many areas of life, such as medical, dental, forensic, education, sports and psychotherapy.

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis happens naturally whenever a person is inclined to accept outside suggestions. Hypnosis makes memories more real and ideas clearer. It can act to help you heal more rapidly, be more creative, and change for the better.

How does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis happens automatically anytime a person becomes deeply relaxed or highly focused. It happens when a person daydreams, while driving, reading a book, or watching a movie. Through the use of carefully worded suggestions, a professional hypnotherapist can prompt and fine tune hypnosis in clients and help them to make changes.

What does hypnosis feel like?
Most hypnosis subjects describe it as extremely pleasant and deeply relaxing, giving them a feeling of well being. The most common feelings reported include: deep relaxation, a tingly feeling, a feeling of heaviness or sensation of floating, a desire to swallow more, slight body twitches, eye fluttering, and a change in breathing pattern. Generally speaking, clients hear and remember most of what is said during the session. They are very aware of their own body and breathing, as well as the temperature of and sound in the room. Most people are actually more (not less) aware of what is going on when they are hypnotised. A very small number of people go so deeply into hypnosis that they have no memory of the session at all, but most hear and remember what went on.

Is a deep state of hypnosis necessary for the hypnosis to work?
Absolutely not! In most cases, a light state is just as effective as a deep state. In changing attitudes and behaviour, a light state of hypnosis can actually work better because the client is more certain to remember the suggestion given.

Common fallacies of hypnosis
Contrary to popular belief, you are not asleep or unconscious when hypnotised. Clients do not lose control during the sessions and can freely choose to disregard any suggestions the hypnotherapist makes. Hypnosis makes a person more inclined to do the things they want to do, but not things that go against their own belief systems, morals and values.

What can hypnosis be used for?
Hypnosis can be used for virtually anything. The most common uses of hypnosis include;
Stress reduction and sound sleep
Smoking cessation
Weight loss
Traumas and phobias
Exam anxiety and success
Memory and learning skills
Health improvement
Pregnancy and childbirth
Athletic enhancement - e.g. Improve your golf
Sexual healing/enhancement
Public speaking and presentations
Creativity and personal power
Self confidence
Passing your driving test
Sales motivation
Creative writing
Regression work
And many more, please feel free to enquire.

Does hypnosis really work?
Yes, and it is one of the most pleasant and natural therapies available! It puts you in charge of your own mind and your outcomes!

Can anyone become hypnotised?
Yes, anyone who wants to be hypnotised, can be. It is a very natural reaction.

What happens if I stay hypnotised?
Dont worry, you wont! You will come out of hypnosis as instructed. Hypnosis (even self-hypnosis) automatically ends in line with your needs and desires.

How many sessions will I need and how much will it cost?
How many sessions are needed depends upon your motivation and the type of therapy you are seeking. In many cases only one or two sessions are necessary. It is recommended that each client call for a free telephone consultation to work out with the hypnotist the likely number of sessions and the cost.
