Q: What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is simply achieving an altered state of consciousness for the benefit of therepuetic purposes to create the desired change in behaviour. This means encouraging a state of deep relaxation similar to day dreaming, meditation, or the state just before you wake up or go to sleep, and then making beneficial suggestions and using hypnotic techniques to the subconscious mind during this time.
We experience trance-like states everyday even if we do not recognise them as such. By harnessing this state, characterised by alpha waves in the brain and a sense of deep peaceful concentration, hypnotherapy can bypass the conscious mind so that suggestions can be absorbed by the subconscious. This way even deeply ingrained behaviours can be altered. Beneficial suggestions are then given the the part of the mind known as the ‘subconscious’. (or as some people know it- the unconscious). Whilst under hypnosis the conscious part of the mind temporarily allows these suggestions to bypass- therefore making the subconscious much more receptive to hypnotherapy.
