What is Hypnosis?bigstock_woman_by_the_psychologist_11485403

Hypnosis in nothing new to us, it happens to everyone several times a day.  Remember times when you are driving somewhere and you had forgotten most of the journey when you reached your destination?  We can also be so engrossed in a film, a good book or a letter that we cannot hear someone talking to us.  Everything pales into the background, or you just lose track of time.

The word hypnosis comes from the Greek word Hypnos which means sleep, however this does not accurately describe hypnosis, as it is not a form of sleeping.  During hypnosis a client’s awareness is heightened allowing the client to be in control and able to hear and know what is being said and done.  This is contrary to images portrayed by stage hypnotists, as you are not under the control of the therapist.

Hypnosis can be described as a deeply relaxed state of mind enhanced by mental and physical relaxation, in which the subconscious mind can communicate with our conscious mind.  It is easier during this time to tap into your own subconscious resources and strengths, to promote positive change and eliminate unwanted habits and behaviors.

Hypnosis is a tool, not a cure.  It requires the client to commit to the change and make effort to make that change a reality.  It is often used by health professionals, such as doctors or dentists.
