Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness. Naturally occurring altered states of consciousness (daydreaming, driving a car but not really paying attention, being in the zone – a highly engaged and focused activity, being un-focused and filling a shopping trolley with items not needed) are common.
Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis conducted by a hypnotherapist in a clinical setting to another person) is a communication process which promotes a heightened state of awareness of selective and focused attention. As humans, we tend to be more receptive to new ideas and new ways of doing things in a relaxed state. Hypnotherapy deliberately induces a relaxed state of awareness. Once the mind is in a relaxed state, therapeutic suggestions can positively impact a person’s perception, allowing for desired changes in our attitudes, perceptions, feelings and behaviours to occur.
Hypnotherapy can be applied in a wide spectrum i.e. mental, physical or behavioural problems or performance enhancement. It is a natural and effective way utilising the already existing resources within the person to accomplish positive lifestyle changes resulting in healthier lifestyle choices.
Hypnosis is one of the most powerful, natural (utilising the potential of the unconscious mind) therapeutic tools available to us. It enhances a better understanding about your situation and promotes resolve rather than conflict of body and mind.
It leans itself as a therapy of first choice in overcoming seemingly overwhelming, unsurmountable and complex problems. The effectiveness of hypnosis resides within its simplicity of application, and, of course the client-therapist relationship based on trust and confidentiality.
