The state of hypnosis is just like the state between waking and sleeping. There are various ways of acheiving this state. But once there – you are highly suggestible and willing to take on positive suggestions.

Hypnosis is  a powerful tool that we can use to  make important changes. Not  least in managing our habits. It is a natural process that can be used to heal medical and psychiatric conditions through manipulating the brain’s abilities. This is achieved through trance.

 Once in a trance, a patient is so absorbed they are not worried about anything else. They connect the brain to the body and put it more in command. But  there is a disconnection  of awareness, allowing a patient to engage in things that they might have been worried or self-conscious about before.

Once we have achieved hypnosis, through trance, then we can apply therapy.

 Our habits are controlled by the unconscious mind. Hypnosis  helps us to communicate with the unconscious mind, so that we can implant suggestions that help to change unwanted habits. It is a mind/body interaction that uses body relaxation, breathing adjustment, mental imagery, and mindfulness training. The imagery helps to turn  your plans into behaviour. Therefore hypnotherapy is very likely to be able to help you.

When a therapist  puts you into hypnotic  trance, this bypasses the critical factor of your mind , which allows him to tap into your inner resources . Being in trance makes you more susceptible to suggestion –  that is, more capable of taking on a  behaviour that is outside your normal comfort zone . Trance enables you  to accept suggestions without judging them. Using these new behaviours you are  enabled  to live in a more satisfying and resourceful way .

 In the hypnotic state our customers become highly aware and focused, and their minds are then ready to both end negativity and to welcome positive suggestions. The focus involved in trance will  cancel worries.

 Please don’t think that hypnosis can ‘make’ you do something. Hypnosis cannot ‘make’ you stop an addiction, or ‘make’ you lose weight.  What it does is help to alter your thoughts, actions and feelings – thoughts, actions and feelings that change your motivations. You may be familiar with media representations of hypnosis used for entertainment.  This often leads to misconceptions about hypnotherapy. But hypnotherapy is about using the power of hypnosis for positive change. Hypnosis can reduce pain, control blood pressure, and treat anxiety.

This is a pathway to great personal advancement. The results can include improvements in intelligence, creativity and learning. On a work scale, this can mean increased efficiency and productivity, on a social scale, it can mean you finding yourself more charismatic.
