Hypnotherapy – Clinical Hypnosis
Did you know that the average person enters a hypnotic state 7 to 9 times per day? Have you ever driven to work and barely remembered getting there? Have you ever watched a movie and being so into it you are cheering for the hero or crying for the heartbroken one?These are two examples of a hypnotic state you have experienced! In some ways hypnotherapy is like an accelerated form of psychotherapy. You are always fully conscious in your hypnotic state. Should you need to respond to something urgent you would snap out of it in an instant! Unlike in the scary movies, someone under hypnosis could never be forced to do or reveal anything they did not want to do or say.
How does it work? Your brain has both a conscious and a subconscious. And your subconscious is way stronger than your conscious – the subconscious usually wins any battle!
Your subconscious has been programmed since birth and dictates your habits and your automatic responses. Your consciousness tries its best to do the rational work, including dictating your willpower. And since willpower is a conscious event, and the conscious regularly gets beat up by the subconscious…guess who usually wins out? Hypnosis allows you to reprogram your subconscious. So hypnosis changes your habits and automatic responses. Now will power is no longer in the picture!
In Clinical Hypnosis you are so relaxed that all that information and all those beliefs stored in your subconscious becomes readily available. Your habits, addictions and many behaviours are a response to what we know and believe on a subconscious level. And since in clinical hypnotherapy we have access to the subconscious, you can choose to rewrite your stories in such a way that you no longer have any need or wish to respond to your beliefs in ways that you consider unhealthy or unhelpful. There is nothing magical about clinical hypnosis except how quickly you might experience change!
Clinical hypnotherapy can be a profound and powerful tool for anyone who wishes to make changes in their lives to be healthier, more motivated and well, just down right happier! Call us for an appointment and let us help you get happy!
