“In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist.”
The term “hypnosis” comes from the greek word ‘hypnos’, meaning “sleep” and was only coined circa in 1840 by Dr James Braid, a Scottish physician.
Despite the fact that many people imagine hypnosis as something weird and mysterious, or something similar to stage shows, the truth is that hypnosis is not the least bit mysterious. Humans have often been in a hypnotic state, but unaware of it because it is such a natural state of mind.
Highway hypnosis – have you ever had the experience of driving in your car, conscious of driving to your destination, but not really remembering any details of the roads that you drove on, the cars that passed you by, even driving past the turn off to your home?
The chances are you were in a light hypnotic trance. In essence, your mind was “miles away” deep in thought, though on a subconscious level you were still fully in control of the vehicle. If a child ran across the road in front of you whilst in this state, your conscious mind would automatically take over and react to the situation in an instant, bringing you back to the present.
The suggestions that the therapist makes help people make positive changes within themselves. In a hypnotherapy session you are always in control and you are not made to do anything. The goal of hypnotherapy is, ultimately, to empower the person and the hypnotherapist merely helps to facilitate this experience.
You can join a hypnotherapy session for:
- Stress management
- Overcoming fears and phobias
- Weight loss and submodalities
- Stop smoking
- Instilling confidence
- Pain management
- Deal with amnesia, hidden memories
- Resistance, loss

- Fast allergy cure
Hypnosis is a powerful tool for each of us to implement change our life. It can help you to become more aware of your potentials and power and realize how to deal your fears and phobias and regain conscious control of yourself and life.
