Why Use Hypnosis – what is Hypnosis?
We behave the way we do, according to the way our subconscious mind is programmed. The quickest and most effective way to access the subconscious mind is through the state of Hypnosis.
The state of Hypnosis is “body asleep-mind awake”. When in the state of Hypnosis, suggestions for change are given directly to the subconscious mind. When a person has made a definite decision to change their behaviour, and the right suggestions are given to their subconscious mind, they then have their two minds working together, their conscious mind having made the decision to change, their subconscious mind being programmed in the same way, which equals success!
Clinical Hypnotherapy is non-invasive, drug free, and there is no conflict with other medications or treatments.
