What is Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. We all go through form hypnosis every day without even realising. During hypnosis, the person being hypnotized is guided into a state of deep relaxation and focused concentration, in which their subconscious mind becomes more receptive to positive suggestions, ideas and images, which will allow us  to change unhelpful thought patterns. We can also see it as synchronisation of our conscious and unconscious mind.

Hypnosis is often used as a therapeutic tool to help people overcome a wide range of issues, such as anxiety, phobias, smoking addiction, and weight loss. Hypnotherapy may involve a combination of techniques, such as guided relaxation, visualization, and suggestion, to help the person achieve their desired goals.

It’s important to note that hypnosis is not a form of mind control, and the person being hypnotized remains fully aware of their surroundings and in control of their actions at all times.

Not all hypnotherapy is the same .

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a positive treatment which allows you to find a way out of your problem. In our sessions we will not discuss any of your past issues or trauma but instead look to find a solution and aim to get you into the place you want to be.

The extensive research has shown that the subconscious  mind becomes open to suggestions when it operates in Alpha and Theta brain waves. Brain waves are patterns of electrical activity that occur in the brain and can be detected by measuring the brain’s electrical signals using an electroencephalogram (EEG). These waves are categorized into several different types based on their frequency and amplitude, and each type is associated with different states of consciousness and mental activity.

Beta Waves (12-30 Hz): These waves are associated with active thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making.

Alpha Waves (8-12 Hz): These waves are associated with relaxation, meditation, and a state of calm awareness.

Delta Waves (0.5-4 Hz): These waves are associated with deep sleep, unconsciousness, and the body’s restorative processes.

Theta Waves (4-8 Hz): These waves are associated with deep relaxation, creativity, and dreaming.

Gamma Waves (above 30 Hz): These waves are associated with higher levels of cognitive processing, such as perception, attention, and memory.

The frequency and amplitude of brain waves can be influenced by a variety of factors, such as emotions, thoughts, and external stimuli. Different types of meditation, mindfulness practices, and other relaxation techniques can also help to shift brain waves into a more beneficial frequency for health and well-being.
