Hypnotherapy

Posted on

When hypnosis is mentioned, people often think of a bearded man wearing spectacles and dangling a watch or a crystal in front of a person’s eyes and taking control of their mind. Or an entertainer snapping their fingers and making people do all sorts of weird and entertaining actions. This is mostly a myth created for comic books, movies, TV and other forms of theatre.

Hypnosis a state of consciousness where focused attention provides enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. The term hypnosis can also refer to an art, skill or act of inducing hypnosis. The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as hypnotherapy, while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is know as stage hypnosis.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful form of Psychotherapy combining cognitive therapeutic counselling techniques with subconscious healing techniques. A lot of mental and emotional distress and even some physical illness can be traced to underlying anxiety, tension and stress arising out of an imbalance between our cognitive or conscious beliefs and desires, and the beliefs and desires that exist in the sub-conscious mind. Many of our thoughts and behaviours are programmed by the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy where the sub-conscious mind is used to help with a range of problems including coping with stress and breaking unhelpful habits.

Well known as being effective for giving up smoking and for weight management, Clinical Hypnotherapy is also powerful in many areas of life in which people experience symptoms of pain, anxiety and tension. Clinical Hypnotherapy has been used widely and successfully for many years in Australia and overseas for the relief of numerous problems and conditions including:

Being hypnotised feels just like being very relaxed. Modern hypnotherapists will simply assist you to become so deeply relaxed that, with a little guidance, you can begin to make the changes you want to make to negative automatic behaviours and/or emotional reactions.

Gaining permanent, positive outcomes from Clinical Hypnotherapy can take anywhere from one or two sessions to many weeks of therapy depending upon the complexity of the problem and the nature of the underlying subconscious beliefs that are causing or contributing to the problem.
