Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion; it is a non-addictive power for good and a natural manifestation of the mind at work. It is a trance like state and everybody has the ability to go into a trance. Every day people slip into natural trance states when they become absorbed in watching television, reading a book, day-dreaming or driving their car when they suddenly realise that they have missed their exit. When we go to sleep at night the brain wave activity in that grey area just before actually falling off to sleep, is virtually identical to what it is in hypnosis. If you awake naturally in the morning you will find that you’ll come through that same brain wave activity again, so certainly we are not asking your mind to go somewhere it has not gone before.
What Happens in A Hypnosis Session?
Each session is tailored to the individual clients needs but this is a general guide.
The client is guided into a state of mental and physical relaxation. Acceptable suggestions will then be given to the subconscious mind to change the old thought patterns to new thought patterns that the client wants. This may last for up to 60 minutes depending on what we are working on to change. At the end of the session the client is emerged with these new thought patterns established.
