More and more people today are seeking alternate forms of treatment in order to consciously create a more fulfilling life. Hypnotherapy, while not a new process, is now a recognized tool being used in traditional therapy with remarkable success!
How does it all happen?
The Conscious Mind is the part of the mind that analyzes, judges and filters all the incoming information. It is sometimes referred to as the “Adult” mind. The Subconscious Mind is where our patterns, values, beliefs, desires and early experiences are stored. The Subconscious mind is like the hard-drive of a computer. All the program files and data are stored in this location. When life is running smoothly, it is because both our Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind are in full agreement. But, there are times, in our lives, when we discover that our Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind are not in agreement; and we find we are struggling with certain difficulties in our lives. It’s like trying to run two conflicting programs at the same time. Sometimes we are successful and other times, are efforts are being thwarted by our sabotaging behaviors.
Hypnosis helps to neutralize negative thoughts and beliefs that prohibit us from having the life we desire. Truthfully, we do what we “feel” not what we “think”. This is where Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective. Hypnotherapy used alone or as an adjunct to traditional counseling techniques has been very effective in bringing balance, insight and resolution to most situations.
A Hypnotic trance is a natural state. In fact, we all experience “trance” states several times a day. It is such a natural occurrence that we usually do not realize that we are experiencing it. A "trance state" is experienced during meditation, prayer and even exercise. We experience a light state of trance while driving (highway hypnosis) and even while being “entranced” by a favorite television program. The benefits of hypnosis are immeasurable - increased physical and mental relaxation, an overall sense of well-being and peace, and a heightened sense of self-empowerment.
