What is hypnotherapy
Ninety percent of our behaviour is conditioned by our subconscious mind. We all once said "I can’t control myself " or "I don’t understand why I'm reacting like this". This is due to the fact that these "automatisms" are recorded in our subconscious mind and of which we are often not aware.
In the state of hypnosis, one has direct access to the unconscious mind and the therapist can, through various techniques such as visualization, change the negative behaviours and replace them with positive ones.
Hypnotherapy is the therapy that uses the state of hypnosis to initiate changes. The state of hypnosis is a natural state by which one passes several times a day. Neither conscious nor unconscious, the state of hypnosis, also called hypnotic trance, is a modified state of consciousness.
There are currently several tools to help in the personal development process. The most powerful change tool known today is hypnosis.
Used in a therapeutic setting, hypnosis is extremely effective because it helps to reach the person's subconscious mind and its resources and helps in his personal development and behaviour change.
A hypnotherapy session lasts about 1 hour during which a dialogue takes place between the patient and the therapist followed by a trance. Trance is a natural modified state of consciousness during which the patient is fully aware of what is happening around him.
Hypnotherapy has several applications including the following:
- Pain management
- Skin conditions
- Quitting smoking and other addictions
- Weight loss
- Sleep disorders
