Hypnosis Explained


For decades, people have been curious about hypnosis and most people have a very different concept of what it is. Many people have only seen hypnosis as shown in films, or on stage or in variety performances, therefore have the idea that the hypnotist is gaining control over someone and making them do things they would not ordinarily do is very different in reality.

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all enter into naturally, since birth. Have you ever been in a situation for instance on a bus or in a car or train, and your mind just wanders off, then you suddenly find yourself at your destination or stop and it has been as though no time has passed? Even the state we are in as we drift off to sleep, or when we first wake up in the morning are hypnotic states. The same goes for when we are ‘entranced’ by a story, book, movie, dance or song.

 People cannot be ‘made’ to go into hypnosis, but it is a state entered into voluntarily and someone cannot be made to carry out suggestions that they do not agree with. Indeed, the first time someone goes into ‘hypnosis’, they often do not realize that they have been in hypnosis at all, although they will almost always experience a deep state of relaxation.

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis to help people achieve their desired outcomes, whether it is increase confidence or to improve performance in sports, amongst the many other things that hypnosis & hypnotherapy can help with.

I have been trained to use hypnosis, NLP and other therapeutic methods to help people with a range of everyday issues or problems. All the client has to do is have a willingness and desire and to follow the directions given. In this voluntary state the client can enter and leave at any time. In fact, in hypnosis people have complete control.

Hypnosis is a great way to tap into the subconscious level of mind and access the resources that we all have available inside of us. People often try to sort out their problems on their own at the conscious level, however if they could find a conscious answer and rapid solution, they wouldn’t still have the problem. With hypnotherapy, the client can get in touch with all of their subconscious resources and find answers and make positive adjustments so that their changes more easily ameliorated.
