In simple terms, hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness. Clinical Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy, therefore, is the use of an altered state of consciousness for therapeutic application to allow for positive and beneficial change. This means that people are not treated with hypnosis but are treated in hypnosis.
A hypnotic state maybe characterised by a very pleasant feeling of relaxation, which individuals allow themselves to enter so that desired, beneficial suggestions may be given directly to the part of the mind known as the subconscious. It is important to note that you are in control throughout the process.
Under hypnosis, the conscious, rational part of the brain is temporarily bypassed, making the subconscious part, which influences mental and physical functions, receptive to therapy. During the trance state there is a higher level of concentration for the specific purpose of maximising potential, changing limiting beliefs and behaviours and gaining insight and wisdom.
This can be an exceptionally valuable way of working and can help with making positive choices in many areas of life.
