Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes.
Hypnotherapy works with the mind’s own natural abilities, to resolve issues, relieve emotional stresses and to achieve personal goals.
It is a safe, effective process and involves the client and therapist working together to bring about positive changes in how they think, feel and act.
Hypnotherapy can remove symptoms and challenges that are caused by emotions, habits, behaviour or psychological issues.
Experts agree that many life problems, including physical disease, may have underlying factors that are predominantly psychological or emotional.
Resolving a problem that’s “inside of you” can give you your life back.
Who can benefit from Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy has been used for over 100 years to help people with issues from low self-esteem to breaking bad habits.
Need more motivation? Want to stop procrastinating? Want to clear your issues and get un-stuck?
Hypnotherapy can also be used to treat anxiety, phobias, addictions, including tobacco, undesirable spontaneous behaviours, and bad habits.
It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues.
Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal side effects from pregnancy and chemotherapy.
While hypnosis can help with health issues, it does not cure diseases, like cancer or heart disease.
Hypnosis puts your mind and body into a heightened state of learning, making you more susceptible to suggestions for self-improvement or behaviour modification. The goal is to put the subconscious and conscious mind in harmony, which in turn helps give you greater control over your behaviour and emotions.
What to Expect
Hypnotherapy is performed in a calm, therapeutic environment. You will be guided into a relaxed, focused state and ask you to think about experiences and situations in positive ways that can help you change the way you think and behave.
Unlike some dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in movies or on stage, you will not be Unconscious or asleep. You will not in any way be out of control with yourself.
Once you enter a state of hypnosis, your body will feel calm and relaxed, even as you enter a state of increased awareness, similar to the way you might feel when during meditation.
Your therapist will speak to you in a calm and gently assertive voice, and place the suggestions you agreed to in your treatment plan into your subconscious mind.
