What is Hypnotherapy?

During the state of hypnosis the subconscious part of the mind (which is likened to the ‘hidden commander’) becomes more receptive, whilst the conscious or critical part of the mind becomes less controlling.

If you imagine the mind as an iceberg, it consists of two parts:-

1. The tip of the iceberg is like the conscious mind which is involved in daily decision making. It is the critical and rational part of the mind.

2. The vast hidden depths of the iceberg represents the subconscious mind, Which produces all of your emotions, memories etc. It is the store-house of your imagination.

Every thought produces a feeling - physically, mentally or emotionally. For example, perhaps there is a certain smell that immediately triggers a memory from your past, or a memory of a particular food that makes your mouth water. Habits get deeply instilled in the subconscious which is why they are difficult to break. You may be able to rationalise about the dangers of cigarette smoking for example, but at the same time be unable to break the habit. Hypnotherapy can help to break the cycle of habits or unwanted reactions by creating new patterns in the subconscious.

During the state of hypnosis, which is a safe and natural relaxed, but yet focused state of mind, hypnotherapy can be used to promote the desired changes as discussed with your therapist.
