Hypnotherapy, hypnosis, hypnotic trance.... what does it all mean?
There is much curiosity surrounding hypnosis. Of course there are the entertainers who perform hypnosis in a perceived magical, mystical way which sends a shiver down the backbone of some and a roar of laughter in the bellies of others.....and then there is hypnosis that is used to support those in need of a little more than they are currently accessing.
What can hypnotherapy be useful for?
Hypnosis can help with many situations - fears & phobias, trauma from earlier times, emotional drain, lack of confidence in self, managing weight, problem solving, ending unhelpful habits, sexual dysfunction, stopping smoking, a desire for increased motivation, improved performance whether in work or play, letting go of unhelpful thoughts and feelings...
Many people are in hypnosis without even realising it - it is a natural resource that most can access. We have all expereinced those moments when we have done something without even thinking about it, been so absorbed in what we are doing that we may not immediately notice what else is happening around us or perhaps lose track of time....sounds familiar, right?
I use hypnosis to guide you in accessing your subconscious mind to deepen understanding and enable change(s) to take place. After all, hypnosis is really self-hypnosis.
There is no magic involved, no mystery - you are simply in a state of deep relaxation that allows your subconscious mind to be open to absorb positive, helpful suggestions that will benefit you in your journey. You are not asleep when in hypnosis, you are aware of what takes place around you, of where you are and of course ... you can hear what I am saying.
