Understanding hypnosis

WHAT is hypnosis or trance?

Hypnosis is a different state of consciousness that you can naturally enter so that, for therapeutic purposes (hypnotherapy), beneficial corrections may be given directly to your unconscious mind.

What if I don’t come out of hypnosis?

You will always awaken from trance. Sometimes when a person does not wake up when a hypnotherapist asks them to, it may be because they have been enjoying the state of trance or have fallen asleep.

Those who have fallen asleep will wake up naturally, feeling optimistic and refreshed.

What are the conditions that hypnotherapy can help?

Hypnotherapy is medically accepted to benefit the following:

  • Unwanted habits (e.g. smoking, nail biting, bed wetting)

  • Weight control

  • Improve work/study/sporting performance

  • Boost self-confidence

  • Getting rid of phobias, compulsions, emotional problems, sleep problems, inhibitions, worries

  • Reduce stress, tension and blood pressure

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Gynaecological problems – PMT, psychogenic infertility, obstetrics (painless childbirth)

  • Pain control

  • Hypnosis is not be used for someone who has psychosis or panic attacks. There are also certain techniques that are contraindicated for people with specific medical conditions.

    Therefore, a trained hypnotherapist should be able to understand these contraindications and ensure that the patient is suitable for hypnotherapy.
