What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a completely safe way to help you make positive life changes and reach your therapeutic goals.
Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind which can be used to enormous benefit. If you have ever watch a stage hypnotist, you were probably left with the impression that the hypnotist has amazing superhuman powers. That he or she can make the participants do whatever they wanted. But that is exactly what the show wants you to believe! But instead of the participants having no control over what happens, precisely the opposite is true. Hypnosis can help you bring about increased levels of focus, concentration and control.
How do you hypnotise people?
There are a number of different ways to lead people into the hypnotic state. I will discuss with you which approach you are most comfortable with. Most people find the variety of approaches very pleasant and deeply relaxing.
I will also teach you how to use this approach on yourself, so that you can continue to reach your goals and to gain greater master over your own mind.
How does hypnosis work?
One of the easiest ways to understand how this works is the power that your imagination has over you. Take a few moments to imagine this:
Imagine you are standing in front of your fridge, and you open the fridge door. As you look inside you see a bright yellow lemon sitting on the shelf. You reach inside and take hold of this ripe lemon. As you hold it you can feel the cold of the lemon against your skin. Take a moment to look at it and see the way the light reflects on the skin of the lemon and feel it’s texture.
Next place the lemon on a chopping board and take a knife out of the drawer and cut the lemon in half. Smell the zingy citrus zest of the lemon and then bring half of the lemon to your mouth, and bite in deep to the lemon…
Do you notice your mouth watering yet?
Your imagination has physical effects on your body – your mind is powerful!!
Hypnosis helps you to use your imagination in more powerful ways, helping you to reach your goals in pleasantly surprising ways!!
Will I feel out of control?
This is a very common question that people have.
The plain honest answer is No. You will not feel out of control, or under my power. It is quite the opposite. With hypnosis, people feel more in control. The mind is relaxed and you feel focused and aware, with an easy level of concentration. You can speak at any time, move at any time, and are always aware of where you are. Just like in counselling, hypnotherapy requires co-operation between me and you. It will not work otherwise.
