How does Hypnotherapy Work?
Hypnotherapy works by encouraging a sleep-like phase of deep-relaxation, where you are still aware of your surroundings. During hypnotherapy you will not do anything that you would not do while fully awake and most people remain silent throughout. Once you have entered into this phase, the phase which we call hypnosis, your mind becomes open, open to new suggestions where it becomes possible to unlearn habits, remove unwanted thoughts or, look at things in a different way (re-framing). Whilst in this lovely relaxed phase a hypnotherapist can boost your confidence, improve your performance, lower levels of pain, reduce stress, increase self esteem and an endless list of other things.
The human brain is divided into two hemispheres; the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious side is where analysis, reasoning and decision making occurs. The subconscious includes those things that we do on autopilot. During hypnosis, we disconnect from the conscious side, the critical side. This enables us to take in new ideas without that automatic dismissal. A hypnotherapist will help reprogram a persons outlook, bringing about whatever is that persons desired outcome.
The brain is extremely complicated and as humans, we still don't understand the full extent of its capabilities.
