Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and NLP

How does hypnosis/hypnotherapy work?

The mind functions on two levels - the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind is logical rational and analytical – the part of the mind we use on a day to day basis for decision making, the part of the mind we like to think is in control.

The subconscious mind controls our emotions and feelings, long term memories, habits and imagination. It is the part of the mind which is in control. In hypnosis we access and communicate directly with the subconscious mind. This enables us to make positive changes to behaviour through suggestion.


Hypnosis is not sleep

It is a state of deep relaxation that you are guided into. You are totally aware of what is happening and in control yet fully relaxed and open to suggestion.


Who can be hypnotised?

Generally speaking everyone of normal intelligence (with an IQ above 70) can be hypnotised. In fact most of us experience forms of hypnosis every day; every time you daydream you are in a form of hypnosis, if you are deeply engrossed in a movie or a book, you are in a form of hypnosis.


Hypnosis is completely safe

You are aware and in control and at any stage can terminate the session. It is impossible for you to get "stuck" in a state of hypnosis, and you cannot be made to do something that is against your will, you are in complete control of your actions and everything you say.
