Hypnosis, or private subconscious healing, is a state of deep relaxation which is natural and safe. It is a state of mind between waking and sleeping where a person is conscious, aware of physical sensation and surroundings, and yet much more receptive to therapeutic suggestions than they would normally be. It is a state of mind which many problems or conditions may be explored and treated.
It can offer benefits in many areas including:
- Confidence building
- Child birth
- Memory improvement
- Pain management
- Migraines and tension headaches
- Weight control
- Stop smoking
- Stress management
- Performance anxiety
- Exam nerves
- Fear and phobias
- Insomnia and sleep disorders
- Skin problems
- Social skills
- Sexuality and relationships
- Personal and behavioural conditions
While in hypnosis, your subconscious mind is open to positive, helpful suggestions. A hyno therapist will form suggestions that will help to meet your personal goals or change existing habits and create new behaviours. The suggestions that you receive while in hynosis are very effective. You will act upon them much more quickly than those given to you in a normal alert state.
The advanced techniques used are especially helpful in dealing with emotional problems. These techniques allow you to work within the privacy of your subconscious mind. There is no disclosure of any sort made by the client to the therapist. Everything that you discuss with your therapist, including the program you are undertaking is completely confidential.
On your initial visit, you and your therapist will spend some time clarifying your goals. The therapist will explain exactly what hypnosis is and will answer any questions that you might have. You will also find out exactly what program the therapist will be following with you.
