Anyone can be hypnotized as long as they are willing and able to follow instructions. The good thing is you can’t be hypnotized against your will because hypnosis is a consensual state. It works best when you really want to make changes in your life but re having a hard time doing so or a hard time following through.
If you have ever been driving and arrived at your destination without actually remembering how you got there then that is the same state, it is when your conscious mind allows your sub conscious mind the take control for a while. Hypnosis is a normal and natural state of mind. You’ve likely in hypnosis hundreds of times in your life. Everyday states of hypnosis include, listening to great music, reading a good book and watching a really good movie. A light state of hypnosis is achieved anytime you lose track of time.
Hypnosis helps you tap into your best self – your inherent power. It helps to increase focus, concentration and helps you to relax and recharge quickly.
Hypnosis is not sleep and it is not relaxation, it is a focused awareness of yourself, it is a state of mind. Some clients tell me they feel light, like they are floating; some feel grounded, others feel a light buzzing feeling and some feel nothing at all, it can be different for everyone.
The great thing about hypnosis is it works fast which surprises many people when they have been dealing with an issue for years and then they have 4 or 5 hypnotherapy sessions and the issue has gone. Our minds can quickly learn fears and phobias and can just as quickly learn a new response to an old situation. Our brain is lightning fast and can change using neuroplasticity.
Hypnosis can help you change habits, reduce the sensation of pain, increase motivation, help you heal from past events, find lost items, eliminate fears and phobias as well as helping you with many common everyday issues.
Hypnosis works below the level of conscious thinking which means you can become aware of things that you had not been aware of before leading to powerful life-changing insights. Yet, you are fully conscious and alert the whole time and you remember everything.
You are always completely in control, hypnosis is not anything like the hypnosis stage shows that you see, they are only for entertainment! This never happens in a hypnosis session. The hypnotist is only there to guide you and to coach you and to work with you to understand your needs and goals. You can then receive the best suggestions while in hypnosis to reach your highest potential.
Hypnosis works even when everything else has failed. Even if you have tried other things hypnosis can still works because it works in a different way. It taps into the power of the sub-conscious mind where are memories and emotions are stored.
I work using regression hypnosis where we regress back to the scenes in your past where you first took on the beliefs that are causing your issue today. Understanding is power and just by understanding where our beliefs come from we then have the power to change our beliefs.
