The Vehicle for POSiTiVE Change

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is beyond doubt one of the most powerful methods of creating POSiTiVE Change in a person.

Although each of us responds to Hypnosis at various rates (from instantly to over several sessions), even the slowest response to hypnotic suggestion is usually much quicker than conventional therapy approaches.

There are many theories of exactly what Hypnosis is, however, so far there is no clear cut agreed explanation.


What does Hypnosis feel like?

Hypnosis is a concentrated state of physical and mental relaxation.

The relaxed physical and mental state of Hypnosis causes either a dulled awareness or at times a super focused awareness. The mind just finds it too much effort to really be bothered thinking or noticing too much, rather it is easier to simply focused or think about what is being said during the hypnotic session. So Hypnosis feels very comfortable and natural to us, in fact we go into a state of Hypnosis all the time. Some examples include:

  • Reading, turning the page and forgetting what you have just read
  • Driving and arriving somewhere having forgotten the trip
  • Talking out loud when concentrating
  • Daydreaming

When in a hypnotic state one of the things that occurs is an increase in the suggestibility of a person. When in this state of mind, the sub conscious mind (the part of us that creates automatic behaviour) is less influenced by your own self talk and tends to accept the suggestions, ideas and concepts that are given, which result in different beliefs or attitudes and therefore behaviour in a given situation.

In addition the subconscious is considered the place where your imagination and emotions are experienced. Therefore, you experience the suggestions given to you more intensely which in turn makes them more believable and allows the subconscious mind to begin creating your reality based on the suggestions.

It is often said that the subconscious is like a computer. It does not know right or wrong, good or bad it just runs programs. The programs (behaviour/beliefs/attitudes) come from many sources but perhaps the most common source is by what you ‘think’. It is generally accepted by Subconscious Mind therapists that subconscious wants to give you what you want. It knows what you want by the types of thoughts you have, and the types of questions you ask yourself during your self-talk. However, most of the time our thoughts are random and negative, often we think about what we don’t want rather than what we do want.

The subconscious then goes about creating our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes, based on our automatic and often unconscious thinking (remember you are thinking ALL the time, but we seldom pay attention to what we are thinking). Hypnosis allows for quick change by focusing our minds on what we want, and communicating that to the subconscious in a way that it understands AND in a way that is accessible to the unconscious mind. Thinking of your subconscious like a computer again. The mind will only run the programs that you have.

You may want to adopt a different belief, attitude or behaviour but until you actually install a new program you will often fail.  You have great intentions, you know what you want, but the computer won’t do it for you. Hypnosis is a lot like installing new programs that you want to have rather than the ones that have been put in there but accident, society, experience or other people.
