Hypnosis is safe and natural. It works by harnessing the tremendous power of your own subconscious mind to help you overcome a wide range of conditions and challenges such as unwanted habits, phobias and fears, depression, anxiety and other stress related problems. It can also assist you to manage symptoms of pain and discomfort.
James Braid initially coined the term hypnotism (or ‘nervous sleep’) in the mid 19th Century. He experimented with the hypnotic state, which we call hypnosis, on his patients and recorded many successes for both physical and psychological conditions.
David Elman, who taught hypnotism to thousands of medical practitioners in the 1950’s and 60’s defined hypnosis as a state in which the subject’s ‘critical faculties’ are suspended and ‘selective thinking’ is installed as a result of suggestion.
An example would be the inability to remember one’s name or a number, or to move a hand or foot, or the removal of pain or an unwanted long held limiting belief.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is the blending of the benefits of hypnosis with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This is a powerful and effective combination which has as its foundation the framework and philosophy of cognitive behaviour therapy.
