What is Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
What is Hypnosis?
Have you ever driven from A to B and not remembered driving there? Yes! Well you are not alone. What has happened is that you have dropped into hypnosis. Why? Simple, when you learn something new, you concentrate on it consciously, remembering all that you have learnt.
When new to driving, you concentrate all the time, being careful to check in your mirrors, indicating and you remain very aware of what you are doing. Eventually, you learn to drive on ‘auto pilot’; which means, that you no longer have to consciously think about what you are doing, like when to change gear. Your subconscious has learnt this new skill and you can start to relax when you are behind a steering wheel.
When we go to sleep at night we go through hypnosis before dropping off to sleep. When we awaken in the morning we go through hypnosis before being fully awake. Being in hypnosis is that time when you are relaxed, before the day kicks in.
When you work with a hypnotherapist, we guide you into a relaxed state and what hypnotherapists are trained in is the language of the mind. We can help you to change the way you think and feel, help you to achieve your goals.

How will I know if I am hypnotised?
Some people go very deep and do not remember much of the session. Others go into a very light state,particularly at the first session. I do an arm assurance once you are relaxed, so that you will know that you are in a relaxed state and able to follow instructions. You will also be given a recording to play in-between sessions, to help you to be able to go into hypnosis easier.
Will I lose control?
Fortunately, no, unless you want to. Stage Hypnosis gives a different story, but then it wouldn’t be very entertaining otherwise… Although stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy have similarities, they do differ. One thing with people participating within a stage show, is that they are aware that a stage hypnotist is going to get them to do something crazy and different …..
