What is hypnotherapy?

It's the practice of hypnosis in a gentle therapeutic and safe environment.

Hypnotherapy is simply an altered state of mind or conscious awareness, much more easily achieved than some people realise.

 

It is a light trance state with varying degrees of consciousness, a state somewhere between asleep and awake. This differs from person to person.

 

This state allows for more rapid change to occur.

How does it work?

Hypnotic suggestion bypasses the conscious minds natural resistance to change. Receiving positive suggestion in this relaxed state reprograms the subconscious mind to permanently effect the positive changes the person desires.

 

This positive suggestion re-trains a person’s subconscious belief system and allows them to overcome habits, phobias and other unwanted behaviours and negative tendencies providing the opportunity to change and grow.

 

This enables the person to take steps towards the life they consciously want to be living.

What is hypnotherapy?

Every person experiences hypnotherapy in their unique way. In Lorina's office you will be seated in a comfortable chair with gentle background music playing, while being guided by my voice to relax to whatever level is appropriate for you.

 

‘Your’ mind is in control of the whole process. Generally speaking you will be likely to experience relaxation, sleepiness and limpness in the muscles of the arms and or the legs. Often a feeling of floating is felt or a relaxing heaviness. Both are fine.

 

Methods vary, however the use of the therapist’s voice to guide you in this relaxed state, is all you need to think about. It really is a wonderfully relaxing therapy.
