What is Hypnotherapy?

When you are highly motivated to change, hypnotherapy provides a quick and effective way to easily change long standing thought patterns and behavioural habits, fear associations and addictions.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation with an acute awareness. In this state you can create lasting changes to the subconscious mind by making positive suggestions, releasing and reprogramming to bring about the desired positive shifts. The critical mind, which normally blocks these suggestions, is temporarily suspended and it becomes possible to change ways of thinking, behaviour patterns and reactions.

Hypnotherapy is not at all like the stage hypnosis you may have seen in the past. It is not being asleep, unconscious or out of your own control. You will not do anything you don’t want to do. There is nothing strange, supernatural or anti-religious about it. You have been in a light hypnotic trance thousands of times without knowing it- you go through hypnosis while falling asleep and waking up, while watching the TV or reading a book so intently that you don’t hear someone talking to you, or perhaps you’ve driven somewhere and realised you didn’t remember part of the journey. All of these occurred when your brain waves changed naturally and you went into hypnosis.

Your subconscious mind is very powerful and it directs the course of your life. It accounts for nearly 90% of the mind and from birth onwards, learned associations are made that can create lifelong reactions and patterns of behaviour. Even with you being fully aware that a particular reaction or pattern is unwanted, these patterns will continue despite logic, reason or willpower unless we make the change at the subconscious level and adjust your programming.

How Effective is Hypnotherapy?

While conventional therapy can help you to understand the patterns of your past and what brought you to this point, Hypnotherapy focuses more on changing those patterns moving forward.

A study by Dr Alfred Barrios, featured in The Psychotherapy Journal of the American Psychiatric Association states that Hypnotherapy has approximately a 93% recovery rate after 6 sessions, compared to Psychoanalysis having approximately 38% recovery rate after 600 sessions.

These are average numbers and some issues would be overcome in a great deal less than 6 hypnotherapy sessions and likewise, some may require more.
