Opinions vary on the exact definition of this natural state of mind. First of all, contrary to
what many people believe, hypnosis is not always a trance state or a sleep state even though a
person in hypnosis may appear to be sleeping. Hypnosis is really natural state of mind and is
an important part of everyday life. Whenever our mind wanders, daydreams or is focused on
something, such as reading a book, driving a familiar route, watching a film we are in a state
Brain scans on people who are in hypnosis state show that brain wave activity moves from a
Beta state to an Alpha state, and sometimes a Theta state. This is not dissimilar to the pattern
of brain activity during meditation.
Do we give up control of our mind to someone else when we are reading a book or watching a film? In situations like this you are in a hypnotic trance, although you still have the power to emerge from that state if wished. Whatever or whomever hypnotizes you; you always have the power to resist.
When you realize that you are the one in control, when you decide how deeply into hypnosis you wish to go, then you become aware of what hypnosis is. A hypnotherapist is a guide and helps you on a journey, but the change can only be made by you.
Often the realization that you are in control, and that you can make change yourself is very empowering. You’ll find that the more often you going into hypnosis, aware that you doing it, the more you realize how easy it is to let go, secure in the knowledge that you can always stop a session if you feel uncomfortable.
Some hypnotherapists use the knowledge that actually we are always in hypnosis and will have an open discussion with you, just altering their language patters, using suggestions relating to your goal and the changes you wish to make, without taking you into a ‘trance state’ at all.
Hypnosis can be used to help treat a wide range of issues such as:
- Fears and phobias
- Physical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, skin conditions and migraines
- Anxiety and stress
- Panic attacks
- Lack of confidence
It can also be used as a tool to:
- Manage pain
- Improve performance at work or in sport
- Improve birth outcomes
Your hypnotherapist will take detailed history and with some conditions may request permission from you to write to their doctor, to let them know you are having hypnotherapy.
They will then discuss you goal and what you would like to see or feel at the end of your sessions.
Using a range of different techniques your hypnotherapist will relax you, make you feel comfortable and work with you towards achieving your goal.
After a session you may feel uplifted, lighter and very relaxed. Often change is very subtle, as your hypnotherapist will be working with your subconscious mind, and you may just notice a very positive shift in how you are feeling.

Tailored Hypnotherapy Sessions:
Giving up Smoking : £297
A great number of people find hypnotherapy for smoking an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking; like smoking to relieve stress. It is these negative thoughts and behaviours that often prevents people from successfully giving up. Quitting does not deal with the underlying issues.
So, when a person makes the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change how they view cigarettes. Breaking an addiction like this is a challenge; it won’t be easy, especially if it is a lifelong habit, and changing how you think about something can be difficult.
Hypnotherapy focuses on this change. The hypnotherapist will support you and guide you through the motions, you’re no longer alone in the trying to quit. Because of this, hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.
When considering hypnosis to stop smoking, the first thing to do is to make sure you are ready and are choosing to quit for yourself. Hypnotherapy for smoking has been found to be most effective when the person really wants to quit, and is determined in succeeding.
Weight Loss: £297
Hypnotherapy for weight loss is becoming increasingly accepted and people all over the world are finding it a beneficial means of maintaining a healthy weight in the long-term.
What happens during hypnosis for weight loss?
- Your hypnotherapist will guide you into a state of deep relaxation.
- Once your body and mind are fully relaxed, your hypnotherapist will be able to access your unconscious mind (the part of us that works all the time but that we’re not necessarily aware of, i.e. innate instincts and survival mechanisms).
- Soothing, carefully worded scripts can be used to explore a client’s reasons for overeating and suggest new ways of thinking through visualisations. You have the control to reject any suggestions you don’t feel happy with without any guidance from your hypnotherapist. See below for some of the techniques and visualisations they may use.
