Introduction to Hypnosis.
Using hypnosis for change is about unlocking the power of the unconscious mind. This, in turn, helps improve learning and leads to lasting change in our thoughts and behaviour. It is a dialogue with our unconscious mind. This is where all change, all learning, and all behaviour takes place. This means that we can bypass the conscious challenge and deal directly with the unconscious. We can, therefore, work directly with learned behaviours that are no longer wanted.
And, as a result of working in this way, we are more likely to achieve change, both in thinking and in behaviour. Consequently, any change is longer-lasting, more effective, and empowers us to move into a new model of the world. This results in greater choice and options.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is, very simply, a changed state of consciousness. Essentially, it’s that state you experience just as you wake up, and when something on the TV or at the cinema completely transfixes you. Similarly, it’s the state you achieve during meditation or mindfulness. It is a perfectly natural state.
That said, the only difference is that with hypnosis, the hypnotist guides you into the state rather than the state occurring because of what you are doing. The advantage of the trance state is that it allows us to communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This means that we can make suggestions, plant ideas, and build on what you already know about yourself.
And, of course, you remain completely in control, and you only do what you want to do. Ultimately, the power remains yours.
Hypnosis complements the work you are undertaking in coaching sessions, reinforcing the positive learnings and progress. Additionally, we use it to build on motivation.
As a stand-alone intervention, it is good for dealing with anxiety and addiction to substances. However, in these cases it very much depends on how entrenched the unwanted behaviour is. This is, of course, something we’d discuss in an initial consultation, which you can book here.
Additionally, hypnosis is also another tool for relaxation, taking you into a restful trance which we can also extend to improve sleep. Whatever the issue, hypnosis can increase your ability to succeed and make the changes that you want to make. As a result of this, you move from your current reality into a new model of the world. And you know that you want that, don’t you?

The recording, lasting about 17 minutes, gives you an idea of what hypnosis is like. Firstly, make sure that you are sitting somewhere comfortable and where you are unlikely to be disturbed. Additionally, if you can stop calls and people from distracting you, even better.
