What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state
The first question people usually ask about Hypnotherapy is ‘will I know what I am doing?’. And the answer is absolutely, yes.
Although everyone can be hypnotised, you have to want to be and give your consent. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a natural state you enter many times a day. It occurs when your concious mind (the smaller part of your mind) is bypassed or occupied, so that your subconcious mind is fully present.
Your concious mind is the part of your mind that is analytical, rational and holds your short term memory.
Your subconcious mind holds your emotions, permanent memory and is all about your self preservation.
Imagine your concious mind to be the camera of your life, taking pictures that you can recall to function and do your work, run your home etc.
And your subconcious mind is like the video camera recording every single thing that has happened in your whole life, yes every blade of grass you’ve ever seen!
