Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, sometimes mistakenly thought of as sleep or unconsciousness.  It is an altered state where the conscious mind is bypassed and the subconscious can be accessed.  It is sometimes referred to as focused awareness or trance.

We all experience altered states of mind each and every day of our lives.  It is a similar feeling to when one drives home from work, arriving home not remembering passing a particular area or landmark and yet arriving home safely.  It is also similar to when we allow our minds to drift off to other thoughts, whilst watching TV or even listening to another person.

The subconscious mind is far more powerful than the conscious mind. It “tape records” all experience.  It is a way to emotions, past events, suppressed, repressed or forgotten feelings by the conscious mind.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis by a qualified therapist working with a client to achieve wonderful results.  The various techniques used have proved effective in both physical and mental conditions.  Patterns formed within the subconscious which may be creating unsatisfactory behaviour and illnesses can be accessed and altered.

With the use of Hypnosis either guided by a Hypnotherapist or learning the technique of self hypnosis a person can build on ones own self esteem and self confidence. These qualities are essential to our well-being, enabling the individual to achieve their full potential.
