The hypnosis I use in sessions is not like the stage hypnosis you may see on TV or in theatres. In fact, hypnotic trance is a natural state of being that you experience several times a day. For example if you are an experienced driver, you may find that you sometimes realise you’ve reached your destination, without remembering the actual drive there, or when you are listening to the radio or watching TV, you are most often doing that in a hypnotic trance.
It’s important to remember that all hypnosis is done by you, the client. I merely facilitate the process with you. Being in a hypnotic trance just allows easier access to the unconscious mind, which takes in more information than our conscious mind and so makes it easier for you to assimilate the fundamental changes you want to make in your life. Hypnosis is a valuable process to use for dealing with phobias, smoking cessation, weight loss and building confidence and self esteem. I also use hypnosis, in addition to other tools, to help my clients move forward towards their goals.
