Hypnotherapy is the delivery of therapy under hypnosis. Hypnosis is positive therapy for a behaviour, habit, fear, phobia, lack of self-confidence, sleepless nights, bed-wetting, nail-biting, OCD, depression and many other issues which you would rather be rid of.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
The state of hypnosis is one which most of us go into several times a day! Otherwise known as being in a trance it’s that state of being when you do things automatically, without consciously thinking about them – like locking the front door and forgetting you have done it; driving down a well-known road and not realising the last couple of miles have passed by or taking medication – which is why many drugs come in diary packs!
I know I have had to go back to check that I have locked the front door behind me, have wondered where the last 2 miles have gone on a journey or checked that I really have taken my prescribed tablets. This is the state which a hypnotherapist achieves for their clients, because this is the state where the subconscious is most approachable.
Why do we need to ‘talk’ to the subconscious?
90% of what we do is controlled by the subconscious. From the beating of our hearts, breathing and the pumping of blood round our body to the majority of our thought-processes, very little is consciously controlled. This means that most of our negative thoughts, feeling and behaviours are subconsciously controlled too. So if you want to change something about yourself in your life, harnessing the power of the subconscious through hypnotherapy gives you a much greater chance of success than just using conscious will-power alone.
Practical use of hypnotherapy
This is why using hypnotherapy to stop smoking has a 91% success rate (Vitakode Smoking Cessation programme). If you follow the Vitakode Smoking Cessation Programme using hypnotherapy to stop smoking, you do not need to use nicotine substitutes or other drugs.
If you choose to lose weight using hypnotherapy and the Virtual Gastric Band Programme, you have a 90% chance of long-term success (Sheila Granger’s programme as trialled by the NHS in East Yorkshire). It is not a diet, it does not restrict food choices, require weighing out of food or need you to count points, calories or carbohydrates. Many such diets fail as soon as you stop them as your subconscious has not been retrained to think differently.
Using the power of the subconscious can help free you from pain, fears and phobias, insecurity, confidence issues, insomnia, nightmares, stress, performance anxiety, bad habits, aches and pains and more.
