Sometimes willpower alone is not enough!

Tree with sunset in the backgroundHypnotherapy is a psychological therapy, a technique of counselling or psychotherapy using relaxation to enable the client to reach a trance state. In this trance a client’s conscious mind is so relaxed the therapist can communicate directly with their subconscious mind. Suitable suggestions made to the subconscious can result in changes that will enable the client to achieve their goals.

The subconscious mind is very powerful and it stores up everything it has learnt from the minute a person is born, if not before, and uses this information to look after the person. Unfortunately the subconscious mind can get things wrong, misunderstanding something or clinging to unwanted habits. Even if a person consciously really wants to make a change but their subconscious mind is in conflict with their conscious mind, the subconscious mind will almost always win, making change hard.

So, using hypnotherapy the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed or convinced that a person really does want to make a change. Then with both conscious and subconscious minds working together changes can be more easily achieved.

While a person is in a trance state of deep relaxation they are still aware and in control. They could at any time terminate the trance if they were not happy or if there was an emergency such as a fire alarm. A person’s subconscious mind would not accept suggestions that were being made if it thought them wrong or harmful. The subconscious mind is always looking out for and protecting the person.

There is no magic wand. Each client needs to want to make these changes in their lives and work with the therapist for their required results. Stage hypnosis, that you may have seen on television, is something completely different and not to be confused with hypnotherapy.
