What is Hypnosis?

Our minds are much more powerful than we often realise. Your mind has two parts, your conscious mind (around 10%) and your subconscious mind (around 90%). You use your conscious mind to think, read and communicate in a ‘conscious’ thought-out manner. Your subconscious mind is responsible for your automatic habits, desires, storing memories and beliefs about yourself and the world around you.

Hypnotherapy works primarily with your subconscious mind. We use our subconscious mind a great deal more than we often realise. This means that it is vital to ensure your subconscious is working at its optimum level, so you feel happy and confident. It is important that your subconscious is focusing on the positives about your life and not stuck dwelling on negative thoughts such as past failures, regrets or fears about the future.

Whenever we come across any information, people or experiences, our subconscious is always the first part of our mind to respond to whatever is happening. Just think about something that might occasionally worry you. For some it’s a spider, for others it’s confronting colleagues or having to speak in public. That feeling of nervousness which you began to experience wasn’t produced by your conscious mind but rather by your subconscious mind. Somewhere your subconscious ‘made up its mind’, as it were, about who you are and how you will do in that situation.

Hypnotherapy is simply a way of relaxing you and speaking more directly to your subconscious mind. This means change can be quicker.
