The great update about hypnosis since I first started, is that now the scientists have done their homework and the good news is that this type of therapy is now known to be one of the most effective ways to create emotional change.
Hypnosis is often coined as “Neuroplasticity”. This buzzword was derived by Neuro Scientists looking at the brain during hypnosis. At first, they were surprised to learn that someone who was anxious about a certain subject could change their emotions so quickly from fear to calm. However, now they understand that a person being exposed repeatedly to positive, accompanying thoughts and feelings, whilst thinking about a fear, actually desensitised them to the original anxiety.
So the old saying “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks!” is completely untrue.
Hypnosis has been defined as a window of time where the person is half way between being awake and asleep. Anybody who says they cannot be hypnotised must be very tired! This is because you need to go through the hypnotic state to get to the sleep state. This is good news for those who are sceptical about hypnosis. At least twice a day, when you go to sleep and when you awake, you pass through the alpha/theta state known as hypnosis.
During hypnosis you are in a heightened state of awareness and focus and the suggestions that I make to you are all delivered to train your brain to move on from negative habits, thoughts and feelings.
The word “hypnosis” is often incorrectly associated with losing control, or that you won’t be in control of your thoughts or actions. In fact, the opposite is true. During the hypnotic state you are more intuitive than you are in the conscious state. It is a heightened state of mind where you are able to learn at a much faster rate.
Understanding what you would like to change is important consciously; however, in order to make deeper, more profound changes hypnosis is, to my knowledge, the fastest and most effective way of improving habits, thoughts and feelings.
People who have been hypnotised describe the experience as being very relaxing and rejuvenating, emotionally and physically. More importantly, they report back that they have a rosier outlook on life too, irrespective of what they come to see me about.
Come and lie on my couch and enjoy the experience!
