Hypnotherapy in Lewes
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is ‘hypnosis’ used to promote healing, personal development and positive change. Hypnosis (also known as ‘trance’) is a state of altered awareness and relaxation, in which we can become absorbed in more relaxing thoughts, ideas, images and feelings, and more easily distracted from negative or painful ones.
You will have experienced the hypnosis state many times in your life. It may have been when you were daydreaming, lying on a beach hearing the waves lapping against the shore, meditating, or watching TV or listening to the radio on a Sunday afternoon. It is within this relaxed state that the conscious mind is able to relax and switch off, allowing the subconscious mind to be open, and in hypnotherapy, allowing positive suggestions to be made.
What is your subconscious mind?
The subconscious mind is like the big bit of the iceberg that is under the water, and the conscious mind is like the little bit poking up out of the water.
You can’t see the big bit but you know it is there, and it contains all of your knowledge, experiences and beliefs (billions of pieces of information). It has a powerful effect on your hormones and health, and regulates your breathing. It is also in action when you are using your creativity and imagination. Many people have their ‘eureka’ moments when the conscious part of the mind rests and the subconscious comes to the fore.
Will I lose control?
You will never lose control in a hypnotherapy session, and will be aware at all times. You are able to speak whenever you wish, and a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do.
