What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of inner concentration and focused attention. You are deeply relaxed, yet very aware of everything that is going on around you. During this state while the body is relaxed, the subconscious mind is open to accept positive suggestions for change. In hypnosis we are able to use our minds more powerfully which allows individuals to experience more of their potential.

The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root cause of many of our habits, behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations. Hypnosis is scientifically considered to be a natural state of our subconscious mind. If you can learn to harness this effective tool, you can create immediate changes for success and happiness.

Research supports the view that hypnotic communication and suggestions effectively changes aspects of the persons physiological and neurological functions.

Practitioners use clinical hypnosis in three main ways. First, they encourage the use of imagination. Mental imagery is very powerful, especially in a focused state of attention. The mind seems capable of using imagery, even if it is only symbolic, to assist us in bringing about the things we are imagining. For example, a client may have a distorted view of their personal self image. They may be asked to describe what his/her personal self image looks and feels like. If they imagine it as being distorted and unhealthy, the client may be encouraged in hypnosis to imagine this image changing to a healthy powerful one.

A second basic hypnotic method is to present ideas or suggestions to the client. In a state of concentrated attention, ideas and suggestions that are compatible with what the client wants seem to have a more powerful impact on the mind.

Finally, hypnosis may be used for unconscious exploration, to better understand underlying motivations or identify whether past events or experiences are associated with causing a problem. Hypnosis avoids the critical censor of the conscious mind, which often defeats what we know to be in our best interests. The effectiveness of hypnosis lies in the way in which it bypasses the interference of the critical or conscious mind, allowing the client's intentions for change to take effect.
