What Is Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy with Wave Hypnosis is a peaceful experience of relaxation in a safe and comfortable environment.
It can involve light or deeper states of hypnosis, and it is always specifically structured to meet your individual needs.
The Phenomenon of trance has been in use for thousands of years and even dates back to ancient Egyptian times.
Hypnosis is simply a form of focused concentration and relaxation, similar to what is experienced in meditation. In the relaxed and focused state, memory functions are enhanced.
Hypnosis is one of the oldest forms of psychotherapy dating back to the early 18th Century, when the famous German physician Franz Anton Mesmer used it to treat a variety of conditions. Hypnosis is still a current type of psychotherapy and it is an approved form of treatment for many medical conditions including anxiety, depression and pain relief.
Hypnotherapy is a very useful tool that is used to help bring about lasting change in a person’s well-being.
It is a safe and comfortable form of therapy that uses a person’s ability to relax and to be focussed to aid therapeutic change.
Hypnotherapy can be compared to an enhanced state of mind where you can learn things more easily.
It can be used to change the way you think, feel or act, making changes at an unconscious level.
Hypnotherapy can also be used to help you interact and to relate more easily with other people.
It can help to resolve unwanted habitual behaviours such as smoking, unhealthy eating and drinking habits, and nail biting.
Hypnotherapy can be used to help boost self-confidence, to recall distant or past memories, or to help you settle unwanted symptoms such as stress, anxiety, pain or grief.
It can be used to help overcome common fears such as flying, spiders, socialising, exams, public speaking and needles.
It is very important to realise that with hypnosis:
- you are not "unconscious", you never lose the ability to maintain control and you can always end the session if you are ever uncomfortable or uneasy.
- in the relaxed and focused state memory functions are simply enhanced.
- the hypnotherapist simply guides the person through a process, and the person experiencing it is actually directing their own hypnosis session.
- successful hypnosis simply requires that you are able to listen and to focus on what is being said.
