What is hypnosis?
Hypnotherapy is a gentle yet powerful way of triggering a change in your life. Many people think that hypnotherapy puts you to sleep, but in fact it wakes you up to the possibility of new ideas and exciting possibilities so you can live the life you have always dreamed of.
Awaken your full potential
By relaxing your conscious mind, your subconscious can be accessed more easily, and your full potential awakened. We all have a huge pool of internal resources that we may have forgotten how to access. Hypnotherapy is a fast and effective way of developing these resources to make positive changes to your life and code in a new way of thinking. It's completely safe, and you are always in control of what happens.
I am trained into Ericksonian hypnosis, inspired by the late Milton Erickson, whose techniques are now widely recognized as the most powerful tools for change. Whereas previous practitioners had expected therapy to happen slowly aided by insight into the cause of the problem, Erickson demonstrated that in one single visit lasting changes could be set in place.
He made the distinction between the conscious and the unconscious mind. The conscious mind can be seen as the tip of the iceberg. It contains all the mental processes of which we are aware. It includes our memory that can be retrieved easily and brought into awareness.
The most important part of the mind is the part you cannot see, just like the hidden part of the iceberg. This unconscious part is the primary source of human behaviour. It is the reservoir of our past experiences, which dictate our decisions, feelings and emotions. It is also a huge reservoir of resources. By accessing this hidden part of the mind, hypnosis helps you to tap into your full potential and give you a turbo boost to implement the changes you want to see in your life.
The domino effect
We all know the satisfaction of nudging the first domino in a row and watching them all fall down. Hypnosis can be seen in a similar way as one small change can lead to lasting effects that impact a multitude of areas in your life. For example, lifting a phobia can lead to increased self-confidence, putting an end to panic attacks can re-install hope and reawakening positive emotions can lift the fog of depression. The possibilities are limitless.
Take back control of your life
I consider hypnosis to be the highway that gives direct access to your internal resources to focus on future solutions and help develop the skills that you need to see new results. In this way you are the master of your life once more.
Hypnosis is merely the catalyst that helps you to access the huge pool of hidden internal resources that can spark this change and assist you in living your best life possible.
