Hypnosis is like guided daydreaming: a form of relaxed concentration. Your body relaxes, and then the conscious part of your mind rests allowing the subconscious mind to come to the forefront and accept suggestions.

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis because you use your abilities, including concentration and imagination to achieve your desired goals.

You are always aware, in control and able to respond on request either verbally or by signal. The hypnotherapist is merely a “guide” into your own deeper resources, the greater part of your mind.

The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality or imagination. Hypnosis enables a person to experience thoughts and images as though they were real. To change your thinking, you need to give suggestions directly to your subconscious mind, then the old behavior patterns can be broken and replaced with new patterns.

Hypnosis feels peaceful and extremely relaxing.

You will feel refreshed and have a wonderful sense of well-being – much the same as having a pleasant nap.

Most of us experience the feeling of being hypnotized in every day situations, such as when driving and suddenly you realize that you have missed your turn. Maybe you have been immersed in a book and someone calls your name, but you don’t hear them.

When in hypnosis, you can bring yourself out whenever you desire. If you are motivated, willing and focused during the session, you can be guided into hypnosis and utilize its value.
