What is Hypnotherapy?
Have you ever wondered why when you have tried to change a habit or behavior it usually resurfaces? This is because our conscious willpower usually cannot compete with the power of the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations. Hypnosis is believed to be a powerful tool for accessing the subconscious mind and creating dramatic improvements in our lives.
During your private hypnotherapy session you will remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper awareness where sounds appear enriched, thoughts clearer and your ability to imagine and visualize is greatly enhanced. It is common for these hypnotic experiences to create sensations of deep relaxation, fluid warmth or a pleasant tingling sensation or buzz throughout your physical body. Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from all physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely alert
Can I be Hypnotized?
Human behavior has led us to recognize that everyone is Hypnotizable and responsive to suggestions. Some are more responsive to physical sensations, others to emotional stimuli, still others to environmental stimuli; and some, to all three. This new formation has opened doors for the Hypnotherapist, the motivator, the counselor and to anyone using Hypnosis for self-improvement.
Our subconscious minds often thwart our will and choice. Hypnosis is a tool, a path, to the subconscious, a way of going deeper to change subconscious programming. In your private hypnotherapy session, you will be completely aware. Many people experience hyper-awareness, where sounds are richer, thoughts clearer, imagination and visualization enhanced. With that, often comes deep relaxation, warmth, vibrant feeling. Many subjects describe an escape from tension and stress and an access of a space of illuminated awareness.
In recent years we have come to a new and deeper understanding of the power of hypnosis for self-improvement and the change of addictions or other unwanted behaviors. There is a consensus that everyone is hypnotizable and responsive to hypnotic suggestion, and that in a hypnotic state everyone is able to reach deeper understanding in order to facilitate subsequent conscious choice. In the ascent into the hyper-awareness of the hypnotized state, some of us are more responsive to sensation, to emotion or to environmental stimuli. Some of us open into deep awareness through all three categories of stimuli. Whichever pathway you take, hypnosis is another powerful tool for awareness and conscious living.
