Does Your Willpower Need More Power?
“Dear Sally, I’m finally putting pen to paper to say thank you so much for all help you gave me to lose weight and get my “Bikini Body”.
You gave me the power to change my eating habits and view myself in a more positive way. I can’t thank you enough and would readily recommend you to anyone wanting to make a positive change to their life” HV
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy 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. Trance is a very natural state, one you go into before sleeping, and often during the day – for example when you are driving somewhere and you realise that you can’t remember going past a certain road or set of lights. This was because consciously you were off thinking about your shopping list or something and your subconscious was driving the car, quite natural and safe!
The Subconscious Mind
Look at the iceberg, the conscious mind is the bit above the water and the subconscious is the huge underwater part. The subconscious mind is very powerful, it stores up everything it has learned from the minute a person is born, if not before, and uses this information to look after the person. Ultimately the subconscious wants to look after and protect the person and it wants them to be happy. 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, if their subconscious mind is in conflict with their conscious mind the subconscious mind will almost always win, making change hard.
How Does It Work?
Using hypnotherapy the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed or convinced that a person really does want to make a change. By convincing the subconscious that the desired change would make the person so much happier the subconscious will then want that change too. Then with both conscious and subconscious minds working together changes can be more easily achieved.
What Does Hypnotherapy Feel Like?
While you are in a trance state of deep relaxation you are still aware and in control. You are not unconscious and you should just feel really relaxed. You may find, while listening to my voice with your eyes closed that you drift off a bit and can’t recall what I am saying, that is okay as your subconscious will still be listening. You could at any time terminate the trance if you were not happy or if there was an emergency such as a fire alarm. Your subconscious mind will not accept suggestions that are being made if it considered them to be wrong or harmful to you. Remember, your subconscious mind is always looking out for you and protecting you. After hypnotherapy, you should feel calm and relaxed and you may or may not remember all of what I had been saying.
Stage hypnosis, that you may have seen on television, is something completely different and not to be confused with hypnotherapy. It would be unethical for me to make you cluck like a chicken!
