What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a deeply relaxed state that is often referred to as an altered state of consciousness where an individual is more open to suggestion, increased motivation and self-exploration. This is a natural state of disassociating from the environment and a deep focus or concentration on inner thoughts and images of the mind.
What happens in Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a treatment technique used by mental health professionals or doctors practicing hypnosis to treat a client's problem or concern. In this state there is more access to the subconscious mind where memory, habits, and emotions are stored allowing the hypnotherapist to help a client achieve positive and long lasting changes in their lives.
What are the benefits of Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of attaining a deep relaxation or induced trance that allows for an entry into the workings of your subconscious mind. There you can find both answers and memories that have been hidden from view and are holding you back from developing yourself fully and from healing certain psychic or emotional wounds. By accessing the subconscious mind, you can uncover the root cause of a problem that is recurring in your life and eradicate it completely. You will gain a full understanding of who you are and how you have been shaped by beliefs and experiences of your life. You will have an opportunity to "reprogram" or change sabotaging or destructive habits/beliefs and transform them into positive attitudes, healthy behaviours and affirmations for the future.
