What is Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a state of deep, focused relaxation, an altered state of consciousness if you will, in which the hypnotherapist makes direct contact with your unconscious mind. 

Your subconscious is the part of your mind that takes care of the things you do automatically, like breathing, walking or yawning to name but a few. 

Under hypnosis, people generally become more receptive to suggestion, causing changes in the way that they feel, think, and behave. 

That being said, it’s important to note that in hypnosis you are NEVER under someone else’s power or control. Remember, Hypnosis is just deep, focused relaxation and nothing more.

An Everyday Example

Have you ever been driving somewhere, and when you got there you had no recollection of the journey?

Or have you ever been driving and been so deep in thought that you missed the street you wanted to turn on?

 That’s what hypnosis is like.  You’re “there” but you’re not “there”.  

You don’t decide on every little thing you do while driving a car – most of those actions are handled by your subconscious mind.  You’re still able to drive the car… but for all other purposes your mind is somewhere else.
