How Hypnotherapy Works
Hypnotherapy (also known as clinical hypnosis), utilises the state of hypnosis to help people make important changes in their lives.
Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness (sometimes known as focussed concentration), that we all experience every day. For example, when you are so absorbed in a book or TV programme that you lose track of the world around you, you are experiencing hypnosis.
During hypnosis, it is possible to access the powerful subconscious part of the mind and make changes.
The power of hypnosis.
One of the main reasons why hypnosis is so effective in helping treat problems, is that it’s often helped cause the problem in the first place!
When we tell ourselves repeatedly and forcefully that we can’t do something or bear something, we are practising a very powerful form of negative self-hypnosis.
The good news is that hypnosis is equally effective as a positive force.
There are numerous scientific studies published on the internet showing that brain scans reveal how hypnosis regulates brain activity. Experiments show that someone visualising an activity during hypnosis uses exactly the same part of the brain as when they actually perform the activity. Thus, during hypnosis the brain cannot distinguish between what is real and what is imagined.
Hypnotherapy uses skilfully crafted positive suggestions and proven therapeutic and coaching techniques applied during the state of hypnosis to help bring about quick and lasting beneficial change.
A typical hypnotherapy session lasts around 1 hour.
