"Hypnosis allows us to begin reaching the Unconscious Mind and utilizing the Mind/Body connection..... This is the beginning of our ability to change habits and manifest wonderful things in our life and our behaviors."
Hypnosis a Comprehensive Guide - Producing Deep Trance Phenomena
by Tad James MS PhD
So you've seen showmen and women make people walk around like chickens on a stage... you think Hypnosis controls people, you don't want to let someone else control you! .........
Nothing could be further removed from the reality of Hypnosis for a clinical outcome.
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that everyone experiences every day, often more than once. Have you ever tried talking to someone who is watching their favourite TV show and found it hard to get their attention? This is a naturally occuring trance state.
Have you ever driven home from work or the shops and don't remember the drive? .... once again you were in a naturally occuring trance state!
The LEGAL definition of Hypnosis is:
bypassing the critical faculty
accepting of selective thinking, thoughts, concepts and ideas that is OK BY YOU AND CONSISTENT WITH YOUR VALUES.
Altering a persons belief or reality through suggestion.
Many first time clients of Hypnosis are surprised to find that trance feels normal and natural, and they remain in control during trance. Afterwards they sometimes have the perception that something 'different' has happened. The event may be a little dimmer in memory, almost like a dream state fairly well remembered.
In Hypnosis for clinical purposes we are focused on the unconscious mind. Our unconscious mind not only holds information that is outside our consciousness, it also manages body functions - it keeps our heart beating, our blood circulating, our digestion working and our lymph system operating.... it makes our eyes blink without conscious awareness. How amazing is it to know that our unconscious mind manages all this with perfect precision.
Now here is where science can finally describe the benefits of Hypnosis:
Our unconscious mind can communicate with every cell in our bodies. Due to the pioneering work of Dr Deepak Chopra scientists have begun to understand the extent of the Mind/Body connection - not only does information from the unconscious mind affect the body, but also our mental processes, mental states and mental behaviors affect all cells in our bodies, all the time.
Information is carried within the body in the form of electrical impulses that pass through nerve cells, or neurons. Between any two neurons there is a gap, or synapse. In order for impulses to travel along a continuous path of nerve cells, something has to carry the impulses across the gaps - this is performed by neurotransmitters. Quantum physics has been able to show us that Neuro-transmitters bathe every cell in the body - this is key to the Mind/Body connection.
The unconscious mind actually sends information that travels to and affects billions of cells throughout the body - giving us health or disease based on our Unconscious beliefs
There are many things we are conscious of, however the operation and health of our body is optimally a function of our Unconscious mind.
When you work with me, you are in a safe and very comfortable environment.
The first 30 minute session is free, we discuss what your goal is and I do a short relaxation test to see if you are open to Hypnosis (basically if it will work! as some people are too nervous to go into the relaxed Hypnotic state).
If you are a successful candidate then you book 3 sessions over a 4 week period and I prepare the scripts for your hypnosis based on your discussed and agreed goals.
