What is Hypnosis & how does it work?
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy that uses the power of positive suggestions to bring about changes to our thoughts, feelings and the way you behave. Most of all hypnosis is a very effective treatment for stress, anxiety, phobias and helping you kick out those bad habits and so much more.
In simple terms I talk to you whilst you are in a relaxed state.Your hypnosis begins with you sitting on a chair and I speak to you to help you to relax. It is very simple, you close your eyes and listen to me speak. As I talk to you gently, you will begin to relax as you listen to my voice. And when you are very relaxed you will be in what is called a ‘hypnotic trance’ and it is harmless, it’s rather like drowsing before you fall asleep at night.
Your conscious and subconscious mind
When you are so relaxed your conscious mind is also in a very relaxed state, sort of switched off so to speak; so this allows me to speak to the sub-conscious part of your mind. Because your subconscious mind has access to lots of information,it is this part that lets you solve problems, construct sentences or locate your keys. Your subconscious mind puts together plans and ideas and runs them by your conscious mind. And when a new idea comes to you out of the blue, it’s because you have already thought through the process unconsciously.The subconscious part of your mind takes care of all the stuff you do daily without even thinking. For example: you don’t think through every little thing you do while driving a car do you? a lot of the small stuff is thought out in your subconscious mind.
Hence it is to this part of your mind that I direct the positive suggestions, so as to bring about changes in your thoughts and the way you feel. This then affects the way you behave, because you no longer think or feel the way you used to.For example if you want to stop smoking I might suggest to your subconscious mind that smoking will cause nausea. So when this association is programmed effectively, you will feel sick every time you think about smoking a cigarette. Alternatively, I may build up your willpower, suggesting to your subconscious that you don’t need cigarettes, and you don’t want them.

Hypnosis reviews- how effective is it?
There is a lot of evidence to prove how effective hypnotherapy is. As an example NICE (National institute for Health & Care Excellence) recognise the benefits of hypnotherapy for the treatment of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Because hypnosis may be used alongside other treatments you may be receiving from your doctor, many have found this helpful.
Why people with cancer use hypnotherapy
As with many types of complementary therapy, some people with cancer use hypnotherapy to help them relax and cope with the symptoms and treatment, because this can be very stressful. Hypnotherapy might help some people feel more comfortable and in control of their situation, so they most often use hypnotherapy for sickness or pain. There is some evidence that hypnotherapy helps with these symptoms.
Also when other treatments have not worked, hypnotherapy has proved to be life changing. Hypnotherapy is a very natural way to overcome so many problems, without the need for medication.
