What is Hypnosis?


Being hypnotised is unique for every person.   The common idea of hypnosis being relaxation, or a type of relaxatherapy, is untrue and a common misconcepton, even amongst some hypnotherapists.  Hypnosis is something else and difficult to understand or know until you have experienced it for yourself.


What is it like to be Hypnotised?

The easiest way to explain hypnosis is probably best in my client’s own words.

  • “It is not what I expected”
  • “Enlightening, and mind blowing. I feel more focused”
  • “You are in total control”
  • “I’ve never felt so physically and mentally relaxed!”
  • “You are aware of everything but just don’t care”
  • “Truly breathtaking and is almost magical”

Why I Use Clinical Hypnosis

We become programmed to act and react in certain ways, usually without realising it.  Have you ever made a decision to ddo something and found that something inside seems to hold you back?  This is your mind and it is powerfu.  If you fight it you will usually lose, but there is a different way.  Persuade it to help you, to be on your side.

I use hypnosis because it makes this possible.  Imagine the power of your mind, it does everything you don’t think about; habits, behaviours, feelings and much more.  All those subconscious things you do. 


For instance, pick up a pen now.  How did you do it?  What actually happens when you pick up the pen?  We all take this for granted but your subconscious just does it, it doesn't even break sweat.  You really do have an amazing mind even if you haven't realised it until now.


The subconscious mind – friend or foe?

Your mind is powerful, too powerful for you to fight.  That is the reason why trying to change with will power, reason and logic doesn't usually work, why your good intentions do not last.  Your subconscious mind was not part of the process and was not in agreement about making the change.


We all have this kind of programming inside us and it can influence everything we do.  We do what we subconsciously want to do.  Sometimes we have no choice, or it may feel that way.  You want to change but can't, no matter how hard you try - but persuade your mind to do what you want and it can be easier than you ever thought possibe!

We need to persuade your mind to change

If you want to understand why you can't make this change yourself, or as quickly as being hypnotised, the answer is simple.  You cannot bypass the logical and rational part of your mind without help and get to the more powerful, hidden subconcious to make the change.  I can’t and I have been using hypnosis for years.


The only way to achieve this is with someone, who knows how to help you do it.  This will make sense if we work together and we make it happen.  It can be life changing and you usually notice something like that!


What you need to know when approaching Hypnotherapy

I don't do stage hypnosis and won't make you do silly things.  I also don't do typical, linear and scripted hypnotherapy.  Every session is tailored to you, as an individual and helping you as quickly and effectively as possible.

Every hypnotherapist is different and has their own skills and experience.  It is not the hypnotherapy that makes the difference, it is the person using it and the way they use it.  Hypnosis, once you find the right hypnotherapist can really change your life for the better.  It can help you improve your health, happiness and achieve success in life.
