What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is as old as recorded history, probably even older, and what it does is it allows you to communicate with the Unconscious Mind.
Hypnosis is a widely accepted method for helping people make changes at the Unconscious level. Hypnosis is a therapeutic process designed to create an altered state of consciousness which stimulates the relaxation response and enables the mind to become suggestible. This allows the creative parts of the brain to play with the suggested images thus altering the visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and the intuitive perceptions which, in turn, stimulates change.
The effectiveness of hypnosis is directly related to the ability to influence or persuade the unconscious or subconscious mind. Any process which relies on communicating and changing the unconscious mind is hypnotic in nature.
NLP and Time Line Therapy™ are advanced hypnotic techniques for helping people change quickly, without a formal induction.
Hypnosis has been scientifically proven to be effective in creating change in certain repetitive behaviours including smoking and weight loss, stress reduction, motivation and pain control.
