WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnosis is a relaxed state which is totally safe. It is not sleep but that feeling you get just before sleep where you feel totally relaxed. This can also be achieved when day dreaming. Have you ever driven somewhere and wondered how you got there? That’s what being in a hypnotic state feels like.
HOW DOES HYPNOTHERAPY WORK?
By entering into hypnosis we are altering our state of consciousness. We have a conscious mind which is exactly what is operating now as you read this. Subconscious or unconscious mind is like a filing system whereby it holds every memory, action and event in our lives. It’s safely tucked away. However if someone is put into hypnosis then in this released state of mind our mind opens up the subconscious. The subconscious mind has no knowledge of time and so for example, if someone has a fear of flying because of something that happened some time ago, the subconscious mind is unaware if this happened last week, a year or ten years ago. By working with the subconscious mind and speaking directly to it whilst in this relaxed state, the subconscious can take these suggestions and they can be used to help eliminate phobias, habits, anxieties etc.

WILL I BE ASLEEP?
No, you will be aware of everything going on although some people feel so deeply relaxed, the person may fall into a light sleep. This will only last a brief moment before you wake up naturally and whilst in a light trance, you will be totally aware of what is going on and whilst you may not remember everything afterwards – your subconscious mind will.
WILL I LOSE CONTROL OR CLUCK LIKE A CHICKEN?
No – not unless you want to! You will always be in control. When people go on stage to be hypnotised, this is because they want to. Although hypnotists look like they have the power to do this to anyone this is not the case, the person selected will be highly suggestible and are happy to go along with it.
WILL I BE STUCK IN HYPNOSIS?
Definitely not. You will always wake up feeling relaxed and although you may wish to relax and rest for a few moments more – you always have the choice.
