Clinical Hypnosis is a therapeutic intervention with empirical support for a variety of conditions:including procedure related and chronic pain, anxiety disorders ,stress related conditions, habit problems (smoking , nail biting etc) sleep disturbances, and various medical conditions.
An appropriately trained and skilled Hypnotherapist can creatively guide their patient in to a natural hypnotic and highly focused state of awareness so that the subconscious mind is succesfully accessed. The subconscious mind is a place where great resources are hidden, habitual and autonomic processes are controlled, as well as being the place in our mind where many of our psychological problems are based.
Hypnotherapy is utilising this natural state of relaxed concentration and heightened awareness to affect desired changes in behaviour, be it physical, emotional or psychological. During this enjoyable state, suggestibility is amplified and you become very receptive to proper suggestion. In this relaxed yet highly focused state, suggestions are acted upon more powerfully than is possible under normal waking conditions.
Hypnosis in induced simply by you listening to the therapist’s voice and focusing your attention on the words being spoken. Obviously there are many different techniques to induce trance. It’s serious therapeutic work and IT WORKS!!
