Hypnosis is a form of complementary therapy that produces a hypnotic state that allows a person -that can be best described as: ‘being open to suggestion’. Hypnotherapy can bring about the desired changes to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Throughout our waking day we are either open to or rejecting suggestions, so for example when visiting the supermarket there might be an item that stands out because it is on offer. However, this item was not on your list but because the item was at a reduced rate you add it to your supermarket trolley. Therefore, it is thought that we are all in a light state of hypnosis.
But it requires a trained hypnotherapist that can skillfully use positive suggestions to improve and provide change within our lives. Long gone are the days when the hypnotherapist is seen waving a pendulum and controlling people’s minds. The aim of hypnosis therefore, is to relax the clients conscious mind enough to alter the state of consciousness whilst simultaneously stimulating and focusing the subconscious part. When the client is in a heightened state of awareness, the therapist uses skilled relaxation techniques to then implant the relevant suggestions required to make such change. The general consensus is that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, but it is the hypnotherapist that helps the client to facilitate your experience.
