What are Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis and how it works?

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy attempts to address the client’s subconscious mind which for explanation purposes is the part of the mind that controls the memories, emotions and automatic processes such as breathing and body temperature amongst thousands of other amazing processes and systems.
During a relaxed state, the therapist enlists the power of the client’s imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques. The client plays a strong part in therapy and must be personally motivated to change.

Hypnosis gets you to focus your attention inwards by switching off the outside demands of the world, one step is simply to shut your eyes to remove any visual stimulation. It is a state of deep relaxation during which the critical analytical mind shuts off making the unconscious mind more accessible.

Hypnotherapy involves learning how to use your mind and thoughts to manage emotional distress (e.g. anxiety, stress), unpleasant physical symptoms (e.g. pain, nausea), or to help you change certain habits or behaviours (e.g. smoking, overeating).

Although hypnosis sessions may differ depending on a particular client’s needs, sessions typically have two phases. In the “induction” phase, the therapist helps you to relax and in the second “therapy” phase your therapist here at simonshypnotherapyroom will make suggestions to you based on the information shared during the talking part of therapy.
The suggestions are the key ingredients of hypnosis because they are targeted to treat your specific symptoms or difficulties, I believe strongly in a targeted solution-based therapy aimed at an individual and their needs.
