We all enter a hypnotic trance every day, which can be described as a highly focussed state. Without realizing it you enter a hypnotic state when you are watching a compelling film or TV programme, reading a riveting book, or even driving home along a familiar route. Perhaps you pull up at home without being specifically able to recall landmarks you must have passed on the way.
This sensation is the result of being in a light trance. You pass through a trance state (hypnagogic) every day, once while falling asleep, and again when waking in the morning. During hypnagogic sleep, you often receive insight into situations and solutions to problems.
During your session, you will relax deeply and be able to access your subconscious. This is where we will do the work.
People often ask, what will happen to me when I’m in hypnosis, will I do or say something embarrassing during therapy. This is where the confusion between a Hypnotist and a Hypnotherapist arises. A stage hypnotist who performs for entertainment will always select their subjects carefully, they will pick outgoing, laid back people who enjoy being the centre of attention and most importantly are willing to play along. Even the most talented hypnotist cannot make you do or say anything that you truly don’t want to .
A Hypnotherapist will focus solely on the health and wellbeing of the client, you are always fully aware of what is going on around you.
