Hypnosis is a natural physiological state of heightened concentration, occurring whenever your attention is narrowly focused on a specific mental or physical task. In a hypnotized state, you are conscious, alert and so absorbed in what you are thinking or doing that you choose to ignore everything else. Essentially, hypnosis is focused thought.
Some of the ways you have likely already experienced hypnosis might include:
All of these are examples of how we experience hypnosis in everyday life.
While in the hypnotic state, the conscious critical mind becomes an observer, and allows direct communication with the subconscious mind. During this state the hypnotherapist can help their clients make changes at the deep subconscious level needed for permanent change.
The subconscious part of our mind accounts for 95% of our brain power, and is where all of our long-term memories are stored and beliefs are held. Accessing this part of our mind through hypnosis can create an expanded awareness of information which may have been kept hidden from the conscious mind. This allows old programming to be updated, old problems to be reframed and new perspectives to be discovered.
This is where the magic happens!
Hypnotherapy is a term that describes the use of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting. During a hypnotherapy session, you will learn how the mind works and how hypnosis works, you will learn many different tools that will support you in creating the life you want in every aspect (beyond what you work on in your session) and you will participate in guided hypnosis sessions in order to accomplish your personal goals.
Hypnosis is a collaborative and active process, with client empowerment being the highest priority. You will actively participate in the structuring of your hypnotherapy program, including setting up the goals for each hypnosis session. Throughout the hypnotherapy process, you will progressively learn self-hypnosis. Ultimately, you will learn how to manage your problems independently, using the tools and strategies acquired through your hypnotherapy sessions.
Hypnotherapy (also called clinical hypnosis) can be a powerful tool to help you reach your self-improvement goals, enhance your athletic, work or school performance, and help you cope with mental, emotional and physical challenges.
You can use hypnotherapy to develop a positive mindset and learn how to control your body, regulate your thoughts and emotions and replace negative behaviors, habits, beliefs and expectations with more appropriate and more functional ones in order to attain a harmonious body and mind and enjoy a fulfilling, beautiful personal and professional life.
