You’ve probably heard the term hypnotherapy before, but a lot of people aren’t completely sure what it is, or what the process involves. In short, hypnotherapy is a method of therapy that uses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change. Many people opt for hypnotherapy if they’re looking to quit smoking, treat phobias, stop bad habits, ease anxiety and more. It can also help with insomnia, learning disorders, communication, and stress-related and relationship issues. Recently it’s even been recognised as an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
So what happens in a hypnotherapy session?
Firstly, you will be able to ask any questions you have and get comfortable. Following this, you will be lead into a state of deep physical and mental relaxation; this moves your mind from the conscious state to a trance-like state within the subconscious mind. Your subconscious has a higher level of concentration which makes you more susceptible to posthypnotic suggestion. When you’re in this state, the therapist will ‘talk’ to your subconscious to help encourage the positive changes you desire. Once this is complete, you will be lead gradually back out of your trance to wakefulness.
