What is Hypnosis?
We all naturally go into a hypnotic trance several times a day - when we are falling asleep
and waking up, when we get engrossed in a TV programme or arrive home without remembering the drive!
Hypnosis can be used to bypass the ‘critical faculty’ of the human
mind and then to embed more positive suggestions in the subconscious that will better serve the hypnotic subject in life.
Our critical factor
comes into play with our very earliest thoughts and our self-image is formed by the age of four. Our conscious
minds cannot remember or retain every memory or piece of information that we are presented with on a daily basis, so the 'critical
faculty' in our conscious mind rejects things that the unconscious mind is not prepared to accept.
These include all the things that do not fit in with our belief systems, so that if we hold a belief, for example, that
we are stupid, any comments on our intelligence or clever things that we have done will be filtered out. It is very difficult
to get a person to change their view of themselves purely through addressing the conscious mind, so this is where
hypnotherapy really helps by directly addressing the unconscious mind.
Call for an appointment or a chat about how
you would like to benefit from hypnotherapy. The hypnotherapy sessions
are held in Watford at the Kingsfield Centre for Physiotherapy. The first appointment
usually lasts for one and a half hours, with subsequent appointments being for an hour. Smoking Cessation is undertaken in one session that would last for around two hours. Hypnotherapy looks to the goal of improving the condition or problem, so between two and six sessions
are usually required.
