How Does it Feel
Hypnosis comes from the word ‘hypnos’ which is the Greek word for sleep. During hypnosis sessions you are not asleep, but rather in an altered state, a state of absolute calm and deep relaxation. Hypnotherapists facilitate the process and are able to recognize when you are in this altered state.
Hypnosis is tranquility at its finest. It can be described as a dichotomy because while your body feels completely relaxed and at ease you are in fact in a state of heightened awareness. You will have increased focus and will be able to hear, feel, think, visualize, and smell. You will always be in control.
Whilst in this altered state the hypnotherapist speaks directly to your subconscious mind and is very conscientious about utilizing positive language. The subconscious mind is the part of the mind that stores all your beliefs, emotions, fears, values, habits, memories; it retains all information from conception to present.
If an individual wants to change a ‘habit’, ‘thought pattern’ or ‘deep rooted belief’ then hypnotherapy can help by getting to the ‘root’ or ‘direct’ cause. The hypnotherapist can assist you in the process of ‘releasing’ any limiting or unwanted beliefs and replace them with more positive affirmations or outlooks. The ultimate goal is to resolve the difficulties you’re experiencing that are unique to you. The hypnotherapist can provide assistance by employing various techniques.
