In busy everyday life, few of us give sufficient time and thought to relaxation. Hypnosis can be a very powerful way of helping you to relax and can also be used therapeutically.
Hypnosis is a very individual experience; it is harmless, produces no damaging side effects whilst providing positive therapeutic benefits and as such is a tool with which we may influence many functions of the mind and body. It has the potential to offer fast and effective treatments in a wide range of issuse, for example:
alcohol and drug abuse
Hypnosis is a natural state, each and everyone of us goes in and out of trance several times a day, for example when we are day dreaming, concentrating, falling asleep or even watching television.
A hypnotic trance is achieved as the result of interaction between the therapist and the client referred to as an “Induction”. This is a journey from the conscious mind to the subconscious mind with the therapist facilitating relaxation of the mind and the body, narrowing the clients focus of attention, reducing awareness of the external environment whilst increasing internal awareness “ the trance state”.
The hypnotic trance is not therapeutic in itself (although many people benefit greatly from the relaxation alone) the true benefits are derived from positive suggestions from the therapist which can bring about subconscious changes to our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
