Very simply, Hypnotherapy is a therapy that uses Hypnosis to induce a deep state of relaxation during which our unconscious mind is highly receptive to new perspectives, and ideas.
The reason Hypnosis is so effective lies in the extreme power of our unconscious mind, which is responsible for keeping us safe and helping us.
Our unconscious mind takes care of all our automatic responses, such as the regulation of our breathing, blood circulation and tissue repair, all without us having to consciously think about it.
But the unconscious mind also stores all our learned responses, i.e. behaviours we’ve learnt since birth. These might include walking, picking things up or riding a bike, to name some of the positive ones and again, all of these we do without consciously having to think about it.
The downside to this is that the unconscious mind also stores our less resourceful and sometimes problematic learned responses or behavioural habits, which might include being afraid of flying, or having anxiety in certain situations, or plain old smoking. So in order to modify some of these responses, or habits or even behaviours, it follows that we must first access the unconscious mind and re-programme it.
This process is called Hypnotherapy, which is a safe, non-invasive and enjoyable process that can change lives in the most positive and exciting of ways.
