Hypnosis is a trance-like state in which a focused awareness is achieved. This trance-like state is similar to daydreaming or being completely absorbed in a book or a movie. You may be in a hypnotic state when watching TV, driving a car or dancing as these activities are performed more unconsciously than consciously.
Our mind can be divided into two mental states; conscious and the subconscious (or unconscious).The conscious mind deals with rational thinking and observations that are in our awareness, while the unconscious mind stores our life’s experiences, emotions and our core beliefs and habits that have evolved out of those experiences.
The unconscious mind is what ultimately directs and controls all of our behaviours and it constantly works to control our inner desires.
My task as your Hypnotherapist is to gently guide you into hypnosis, to activate internal resources for change and empowerment and enable your unconscious mind to generate solutions allowing you to move toward your specified outcome.
Even someone who is very strong willed can be hypnotised because “ALL HYPNOSIS IS SELF HYPNOSIS”. The hypnotherapist has no control over the will of the client and has no mystical powers. The hypnotherapist directs the clients experience but only to the degree that the client permits it. Having a strong mind would actually assist you into a hypnotic experience and help you to facilitate change
Most likely, but as everyone is a unique individual and many factors are involved there are no guarantees. No leading expert would ever claim that what they do works for everyone 100% of the time.
By attending your sessions with an open mind and a willingness to follow simple instructions you will most likely be successful.
I will guarantee though, that I will put every effort into working to help you achieve your goals during every one of your sessions.
You are in complete control at all times during your session and cannot be made to do anything against your will. The job of your unconscious mind is to help and protect you.
Whatever moral and ethical codes you hold in a normal waking state will still be in place under hypnosis.
Just like you cannot be made to do anything against your moral and ethical codes, you are in complete control and will not reveal more than you are comfortable revealing
Hypnosis is a state of focused attention which is controlled by the client. If there was an emergency, or you no longer wish to participate, you can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time. It’s a bit like being engrossed in a book or a movie. You are in deep concentration and are enjoying it but you know at anytime, you have the power and ability to turn off the TV or close the book. It’s impossible to get stuck in a state of concentration.
If you happen to fall asleep whilst in hypnosis you will naturally awaken just as you would from regular sleep.
If the hypnotherapist were to leave or not count you awake you would eventually realize that the session had ended and would awaken on your own.
