How does hypnotherapy work?

The mind can be best thought of as being divided into two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. These two parts are separated by what is referred to as the ‘critical mind.’ Your critical mind acts as the gatekeeper between the conscious into the subconscious and prevents negative thoughts or unfounded views from entering into your subconscious.

Hypnosis is a little like daydreaming and in fact we all go into a trance like state a few times a day. Examples would be when you’re  very focused on task at hand, it can happen when you are driving, especially on long trips …that’s called HIGHWAY HYPNOSIS… or when you are about to fall asleep.

Hypnosis works by temporarily weakening……or I say “softening” the critical mind and placing a person into a trance like state.  When you are in this trance like state, suggestions and information can more easily flow into the subconscious with not too much critical analysis. Hypnotherapists have been using hypnosis within clinical settings to treat everything from pain and anxiety right through to addiction, phobias and a number of other psychological ailments.
