Hypnotherapy – Access Your Inner Resources
Quite often I get asked how does hypnotherapy work?. In simplistic terms Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of physical and mental relaxation which we all drift in and out of every day. I’m sure you can relate to driving long distances and drifting to other thoughts whilst part of your sub conscious mind concentrates on the driving. Or maybe you are watching TV or reading a book and do not hear anyone calling you or other “distractions”. Have you ever arrived at a place you drive to regularly e.g. work, and wondered how you got there? You simply went into hypnosis! When you utilise this natural state of mind in hypnotherapy it becomes easier to make beneficial changes in your life.
Despite what you may have seen or experienced with stage hypnosis you should be aware that a person in hypnosis or undergoing hypnotherapy is fully in control of the situation. In hypnosis your subconscious is directly accessible and is the part of your mind that determines how you react to any suggestions before you become consciously aware. You can be sure that you will never say or do anything in hypnosis which is against your moral or ethical judgement, and also as the subconscious is the driving force behind you then any changes that it accepts for your benefit during a hypnotherapy session become deeply rooted and long lasting. This is the reason that hypnosis and hypnotherapy can change your long lasting habits and belief system, allowing you to choose a new, healthier and beneficial lifestyle.
