A common misconception about hypnosis is that it’s only for stopping bad habits, like smoking.
The truth is that it can be used to improve any aspect of your life, including:
- Self confidence
- Self esteem
…and much, much more. Pretty much any aspect of your life you’re looking to improve can be worked on with hypnotherapy.
Want to be more assertive at work? We can work on that.
Want to be able to stand up for yourself more? We can work on that.
Want to not be a giant ball of stress? We can work on that.
Want to do your job better or play sports better? We can work on that.
So what is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is comprised of two parts –
- Trance which is an altered state of consciousness when the conscious mind is quieted and the subconscious mind is active.
- Presentation of suggestions and acceptance of an idea, emotion or behaviour to create a desired change, influence or outcome.
The frontal lobe of the brain is the gatekeeper to the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy is unlocking the gate to access the information and rewrite the script of the mind to create the desired change you are seeking.
Will I lose control?
No. Absolutely not. Some television show popularise an hypnotic state where the person loses control. With medical hypnotherapy, you are completely aware, and awake the whole time. You can stop at any time.
All hypnosis is, is bringing you to a very relaxed state, just like that twilight between sleep and wakefulness. Once you’re in that state, we can work to give you the tools you need to achieve the goals you want to reach.
