What is Hypnotherapy?
The bypass of the critical factor, of the conscious mind, and the establishment, of acceptable selective thinking.
What this means is: The conscious mind gathers information from the outside world and will compare this information with information and beliefs stored in the subconscious mind. The conscious mind will then analyse this information to see if there is any conflict between the two. If there is already information or a strong belief in the subconscious mind that is not of the same nature of this new information, the critical factor of the conscious mind will block and refuse this new information. Thus, hypnotherapy is used to bypass the critical factor of the conscious mind to reach the subconscious mind directly. Just simple conscious thought is not enough to reach the subconscious mind and make the changes that you would like.
What is Hypnotherapy? The establishment of acceptable selective thinking is this. Once the subconscious mind has been reached and the critical factor is bypassed new and powerful suggestions can be accepted into the subconscious mind. Because hypnosis is a direct link to the subconscious mind, these suggestions, when compounded will dominate old information and negative beliefs.
So what is Hypnotherapy and what you can expect from hypnosis? Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness with extremely powerful, lasting and rapid transformations. This is very exciting because in this state of mind negative beliefs can be reversed to positive, strong and life changing beliefs. We know now, how much a belief can affect the outcome of our lives. A negative belief can easily hold you back from the things other people do every day and a positive belief can powerfully give you the ability to overcome any obstacle, exceeding even your own levels of a happy successful life.
Hypnosis is nothing mystical or magical. Hypnosis is actually a very powerful and natural state of mind, which every single person in the world can achieve. Don't wait. The time is NOW and the opportunity is HERE!
How does hypnosis work? What hypnosis does is this. It relaxes the conscious mind and opens the subconscious mind to the point that suggestions can be accepted. Once the suggestion is accepted and agreed on by the person hypnotised the suggestion then becomes a stable, strong pillar in that person's belief system.
What can hypnosis be used for? The real question is what hypnosis can't be used for. I've seen hypnosis used for many, many issues. Basically, it can be used for anything a person can imagine. Losing weight and quitting bad
Habits are most commonly known. Hypnotherapy can be used for pain control, confidence, insomnia, stress & anxiety, and sports improvement to name a few.
How long do the results of the session last? When you go into a hypnosis session and get the results you want, those results are with you for life.
How long has hypnosis been around? It is believed by many that hypnosis has been around since the time of the Egyptian pyramids. Some believe that it was the practice of hypnosis that made the Egyptians so advanced for their time. Others believe that it dates back even further in time. There really is no way to know when it was first used.
Does the practice of hypnosis conflict with religion? No; not at all. Hypnosis is a natural state that everyone possesses within themselves. If anything this can be used to become better people to one another. If you were to eliminate all the negativity inside you right now, wouldn't you feel more at peace with the world? We believe that this is a gift that was given to us to improve the way we live.
Do you think hypnosis is here to stay or just a fad? If you have noticed lately, the word hypnosis is surfacing all over the place. For the first time ever, people are being educated about this subject and the fears of hypnosis are being cleared. I truly believe it is here to stay and that one day it will become such common practice as brushing your teeth. It's inevitable with its natural simplicity and effective results. How else could you get the rapid progress you get with hypnosis?
Can a person in hypnosis be controlled? No way! It only appears that way in stage hypnosis, where the hypnotist asks for volunteers or picks people out of the crowd that most likely would have been the class clowns in school. Professional hypnosis is quite different. A hypnotherapist is there to help you with your issues and needs your cooperation with the process. If the hypnotherapist were to give you suggestions that you didn't agree with or were morally against your beliefs, you would either refuse them or you would stand right up and walk out of that session. You must also understand that when hypnotised, you do not black out. You actually hear and see everything very clearly.
Can a person be stuck in hypnosis? Never! If you are thinking, what if I was to be hypnotised and something were to happen to the hypnotist and I were left alone, still hypnotised? What would happen? Simple. You would just snap right out of hypnosis whenever you were ready. When you are in a state of hypnosis, anything alarming or of importance would pop you right out of this state. There is absolutely no danger to you in a state of hypnosis. So why not call now and see how we can help you.
What does counselling involve?
Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be 'sent' for counselling.
By listening attentively and patiently the counsellor can begin to perceive the difficulties from the client's point of view and can help them to see things more clearly, possibly from a different perspective. Counselling is a way of enabling choice or change or of reducing confusion. It does not involve giving advice or directing a client to take a particular course of action. Counsellors do not judge or exploit their clients in any way.
In the counselling sessions the client can explore various aspects of their life and feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family. Bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and counselling offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand. The counsellor will encourage the expression of feelings and as a result of their training will be able to accept and reflect the client's problems without becoming burdened by them.
Acceptance and respect for the client are essentials for a counsellor and, as the relationship develops, so too does trust between the counsellor and client, enabling the client to look at many aspects of their life, their relationships and themselves which they may not have considered or been able to face before. The counsellor may help the client to examine in detail the behaviour or situations which are proving troublesome and to find an area where it would be possible to initiate some change as a start. The counsellor may help the client to look at the options open to them and help them to decide the best for them.
