What is Hypnotherapy

Many people ask what hypnotherapy is so I’ll try to explain and at the same time dispel a few myths and misconceptions.

Hypnosis is a pleasant state of mind where a person experiences deep mental and physical relaxation. It is a very natural state of being where a person is always in complete control and is always aware of what is going on around them. Hypnosis induces a trance-like state in which the conscious mind is temporarily distracted and the subconscious is opened up, effectively like being in a daydream.

A qualified hypnotherapist such as myself can then talk directly with the subconscious to suggest ideas, attitudes and lifestyle changes to the patient and the seeds of these become firmly planted in the subconscious mind. This is why hypnotherapy is so effective and quick in changing attitudes. Your subconscious controls all of your behaviours and affects your physical state – so hypnotherapy can help with physical as well as emotional problems.

There are many myths surrounding hypnosis such as:

  • You’re asleep when you’re hypnotised

  • You’re unconscious when you’re hypnotised

  • Hypnosis is the dominance and manipulation of gullible people by the hypnotist

  • A hypnotist can make people commit immoral or illegal acts when hypnotised

  • A hypnotist can make people do embarrassing things

  • People can remain in trances for a long time, perhaps a lifetime

  • People can be woken up only by the person who hypnotised them

  • Hypnosis can cure almost any ailment

  • None of the above are true

    The truth is that a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything you do not want to do, you are in complete control at all times. You can leave a trance state at any time, it is your choice to enter a trance state and you can choose to leave at anytime. If you were left in a trance state by your hypnotherapist or a hypnosis CD you would either return to full consciousness on your own or enter a natural sleep and awaken after a pleasant nap.

    Hypnotherapy can help anyone with many problems in their lives including
  • Addictions
  • Anger Management
  • Body Image
  • Childbirth/Fertility
  • Confidence
  • Exams
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Grief/Loss
  • Habits & Disorders
  • Health
  • Memory & Learning
  • Pain
  • Personal Development
  • Weight Loss/Gain
  • Relationships
  • Skin Problems
  • Stress and Anxiety.

  • As with all treatments a 100% success rate is not possible but it is possible that you could gain something you were not expecting from the initial goal of hypnosis.

    Hypnotherapy. Weight loss

    Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy

    Lose weight for life with hypnosis and no more fad diets

    Hypnosis will help you to lose weight and in the process develop a new and more positive image of yourself and give you a totally different outlook on life
    It will help you to retrain your mind and thereby change your lifestyle in a permanent and healthy way which in turn will help you to feel good. You will then be able to enjoy healthy eating and take more exercise and not see it as a burden. You will be relieved from the resulting stress felt when weight loss goals are taking longer to achieve with normal faddy diets
    Hypnosis is of course a very safe and natural alternative to the drastic option of weight loss surgery.

    Being able to follow a diet and exercise plan is all about re-educating your mind and in the process this will change your pre-established eating and exercise habits.

    Some people tend to face unconscious obstacles that prevent them from following through with their diets and therefore they tend to remain overweight no matter how many times they try to diet and take exercise plans and gym memberships.

    Hypnosis actually helps in removing those obstacles and changing a person’s unconscious mind so they can then move forward with a sensible healthy lifestyle.

    Most people who want to lose weight want to get quick results but quick weight loss is not always the healthiest way to lose weight. Most of these people tend to put on the weight they have lost as soon as they get off these fad diets.

    Weight loss should be a slow and steady process and this is where hypnosis helps. If you are one of those people who always go for fad diets because they are quick and give fast results you need to consider hypnotherapy.

    Hypnotherapy. Stop smoking with hypnotherapy

    Quit Smoking With Hypnotherapy

    Stop smoking with hypnotherapy and prevent the normal withdrawal cravings associated with quitting.

    This will then give you more chance of success and help you to change your habits and lifestyle in a safe and natural way.

    Relieving stress with hypnosis will make it easier for you to quit smoking and to then enjoy the health and financial benefits that come when you stop smoking.
    Hypnosis is a very safe and natural alternative to nicotine replacement methods such as patches and vapourisers and ultimately more successful because with nicotine replacement methods the cravings remain.
    With the use of hypnotherapy and positive suggestions you’ll enjoy a relaxing session to support your decision to stop smoking and the make positive changes that you want.

    If you are a smoker, giving up the habit is the greatest single step you can make to improving your overall health and the benefits when you quit smoking begin straight away. You will reduce your risk of getting serious disease no matter what age you are when you give up. However, the sooner you quit smoking the greater the reduction in your risk will be. Within 10 to 15 years of giving up smoking, an ex-smoker will be only slightly more likely to develop lung cancer than a non-smoker.

    Hypnotherapy is a fast, effective, safe and powerful tool for the permanent eradication of unwanted habits. The physical addiction is less than 10% and the rest is all in the mind, which can of course be re-educated.

    Hypnotherapy guides you into a relaxed state enabling direct access to your subconscious mind. This is where our instinctive behaviour patterns and natural reactions are formed and so long as you have a genuine desire to quit smoking, you will become a non-smoker for good, with no cravings.
