In the world of holistic wellness and personal growth, hypnotherapy has proven to be an evidence-based powerful tool in unlocking the hidden potential of the human mind.
The Basics of Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy involves inducing a state of altered awareness. This can feel like a state of deep relaxation, or zoned out or of intense focus, allowing the individual to access their subconscious mind. This altered state of consciousness enables the therapist to bypass the critical faculty, which is the barrier between the conscious and subconscious mind. In this altered state, the mind becomes highly receptive to suggestions and positive affirmations. Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When under hypnosis you will feel relaxed and comfortable, time passes quickly and your subconscious mind becomes receptive to new suggestions and ideas. At The Hypnosis Clinic, we use a variety of techniques to induce hypnosis easily and comfortably in order to access the subconscious mind and re-program unwanted patterns of behaviour.
The Role of the Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind is a reservoir of memories, beliefs, and emotions. It plays a crucial role in shaping our thoughts, behaviors, and perceptions. Our subconscious mind is like a large file-storage facility; it stores all our automatic responses such as breathing, blood circulation and tissue repair, as well as our learned responses such as walking, holding a pencil, riding a bike or driving a car.
It follows then that our subconscious mind also stores our less resourceful and sometimes problematic learned responses or behavioral habits, which might include overeating, smoking, fears and phobias, anxiety or sleep disorders. So in order to modify some of these behaviours, we must first access the subconscious mind and then re-program it with more desired patterns of behaviour. Through hypnotherapy, individuals can address and reprogram limiting beliefs, unwanted habits, overcome phobias, and manage various psychological issues, including stress and anxiety.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and enjoyable process that can change lives in the most positive and exciting of ways.
