What can hypnotherapy do for you?
Hypnosis, sometimes also decribed as a state of trance, is a comfortable, safe, relaxing state of mind. While in such a daydream-like state you are able to get in touch with your own subconscious processes.
This can only be achieved with your full cooperation and desire to enter into such a creative state of altered awareness.
The therapist will guide you and assist you in moving the focus of your attention away from your anlaytical-critical mind to the deeper inner processes of your subconscious.
When in such a state of deeper awareness your subconscious mind is more receptive to achieve change at a more fundamental personal level.
The therapist can facilitate the change of unwanted habits or patterns of behaviour and distressing emotional states by placing positive suggestions into your subconscious mind or he/she can help you regress to previous states of mind that may need to be reprocessed and/or reframed.
AS the hypnotic trance is an ideal state to achieve change, CBT can be most effective when combined and integrated with Hypnotherapy.
