What is Hypnosis?


The term hypnotism was coined by a British scientist named James Braid in the eighteenth century, the name a reference to the Ancient Greek god of sleep, Hypnos.

Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention and it is 100% natural and normal…

The ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration and change. Hypnosis, called by different names in different cultures and times, has been recognized for thousands of years and used for many purposes.

When you enter into the absorbed state of hypnosis, you can use your thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to you. With the help of a trained professional, you can develop innate, individual abilities that enable making desired changes in your thoughts, feelings and behaviours possible. For reasons that are as yet not clear, the focused state of hypnosis allows changes to intentionally be made “automatically”, changes that you could not ordinarily consciously make.

Hypnosis is used in the treatment of pain, depression, anxiety, stress, habit disorders, and many other psychological and medical problems. However, it may not be useful for all psychological problems or for all patients or clients. The decision to use hypnosis as a component of treatment can only be made in consultation with a qualified provider who has been trained in the use and limitations of clinical hypnotherapy.
