How hypnotherapy works?
The brain works at a number of levels, diving in and out of consciousness and various forms of awareness. Hypnosis taps into these altering states, using the ‘dream-like’ state to create a more positive association with something.
Hypnotherapy puts you into these states of awareness intentionally. Once you’re in it, the practitioner can utilise various techniques to alter the perceptions, attitudes and behaviours you may carry towards a certain aspect of your life.
The way that this form of treatment works is still not entirely understood by researchers, but what we do know is that it’s extremely effective at accessing the unconscious mind – an important influence on how we act from day to day.
Despite what many people think, you cannot be hypnotised into doing things you don’t want to do and no one can force you to act a certain way. In order for this treatment to work, you need to allow yourself to be placed under hypnosis, as it is entirely voluntary.
Because of this, it’s not always as effective for some individuals as other types of treatment.
