Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened inner awareness, the conscious mind quietens and allows access to the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is like a huge, highly organised database of information which gathers information from the time we are in the womb. It works by association; hearing an old song, for example, can take us straight back to a situation years ago, or smelling a particular smell has the same effect. Our unconscious mind is highly efficient. From that database we develop our beliefs and habits, it is who we are, but as well as collecting good information, it also collects bad. The hypnotherapist talks to the client’s unconscious mind to facilitate the changes the client wishes to make. I help you to re-set your unconscious mind, to delete unwanted habits, beliefs and behaviours and replace them with the alternative methods of thinking, feeling and behaving which you are seeking to achieve. There are different levels of trance and it is not necessary to be in a very deep trance in order for the process to work.
