What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, that relaxes the conscious part of the mind (the logical thinking part) while simultaneously stimulating and focussing the subconscious part (the area that stores memories, creates dreams and fantasies, and controls our thoughts, good and bad). This heightened state of awareness - reached using skilled relaxation techniques - allows the hypnotherapist to then make appropriate suggestions.
Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis.
The humour element for us the audience, is that the subject is under the control of the Stage Hypnotist and doing things that he would not normally do.
However, as any honest hypnotist will tell you, under hypnosis you can ALWAYS hear everything around you and you know EXACTLY what you have consented to do. Some of us just want our five minutes of fame in front of an audience……and that’s ok.
Does it work for everyone?
Hypnosis has the capacity to work for the majority of individuals, however, some are more susceptible to suggestions than others. There are no guarantees that hypnotherapy will work for you, but if you keep an open mind, fully committed to the process and trust your hypnotherapist, it has every chance of succeeding.
