Hypnosis involves a deeply relaxed state where we have access to the subconscious mind.
People come for hypnosis for many different reasons. For example, to overcome habits, fears, phobias, or stress. They also come for hypnosis to break bad habits or create new ones. For example, improved sleep, weight loss, and smoking cessation.
All therapeutic hypnosis involves self-improvement.
Often, we just need to learn how to tap into the body’s natural wisdom.
Between sessions, clients practice new tools, ways of being, and listen to hypnosis recordings.
The main goal of hypnosis is to align subconscious motivation with conscious desire.
What brings most people in is when the subconscious and conscious are out of rapport.
The subconscious mind is responsible for our habits, behaviors, and emotions. It likes autopilot and acting without thinking.
Whereas the subconscious mind is 90% of our brain power, the conscious mind is only 10%.
When you consciously want to change but can’t, it’s because the subconscious mind is much more powerful, and has put on the brakes.
Hypnosis involves getting the two parts of our minds to collaborate to that we can achieve more flow, happiness, and deeper satisfaction with life.
The subconscious is a place that is beyond words- it’s where your imagination, memories, dreams, aspirations, and intuition live.
We use imagery and symbolism in hypnosis for discovery about the best way to move forward.
Deep relaxation in hypnosis allows the answers you’re seeking to naturally arise.
During hypnosis, you are always fully in control. If you want to scratch an itch, you can. Most of the time you’ll be too relaxed to want to.
Because the subconscious stores all our memories, we look for associations, and can change negative ones to positive ones, and vice versa.
For example, if, as a child you had a bad experience with a dog, your subconscious mind, responsible for survival, will store the perception of dogs as threatening. This is how, as an adult, and without memory of the bad experience, you may be afraid of dogs and not know why.
Using hypnosis, we aim to calibrate the two parts of your mind by creating new habits, associations, and ways of being.
