When clients come to me to help them create a change in their life or shift a limiting pattern or irrational behaviour, they often voice their worry about what hypnosis is and whether I will control their minds in some negative way. This is quite a common fear so let me perhaps explain a little bit about it.
So you have a conscious mind (outer world) and a subconscious mind (inner world). Imagine the a person who is sitting on an elephant that rides it about. The rider is the conscious, rational, logical mind and the elephant is the subconscious mind full of emotion and feelings. The rider sets goals, plans their life and uses their talents and problem solving skills but the elephant is running the show. The elephant holds all the mistaken beliefs, destructive patterns and emotional fears.
Now because the subconscious is processing about 4 billion bits of information a second, it is so powerful that it can quite easily take a irrational belief and hold it as if it were the truth. With hypnosis I have the ability to talk to the inner mind and give it suggestions to create new thoughts, beliefs and behaviours. To do this I use a more deliberate, softer voice in a relaxing way to calm the mind and body and send you into a light or deep state of trance depending on what we need to achieve. It is very pleasant, quite addictive and after a first try most clients describe themselves as feeling heavy, like they've had a wonderful sleep, positive, motivated and much more. At any point during the trance state, you can wake yourself up if unhappy in any way and you are in control but no one has ever felt the need because I explain every step of the process. If you have any questions or need to know more please give me a call for a chat. 07855660390
