Hypnotherapy has been used for centuries, but until recently, was not really appreciated. It has only been in the last 50 years that the art/science of hypnotic therapy has emerged as an approach with astounding results. Although, there are no guarantees that any one technique will be the answer to the needed changes, the techniques have become easier to accept and the clients are having successes that have been evading them after trying other approaches.
The practice of hypnosis is a way of communicating with the subconscious mind or the part of the mind that stores all experiences without judgement whether they have been positive or negative. This is done while in a trance state or dream like state. Hypnosis can then reprogram the subconscious mind through suggestions made by the hypnotherapist to accept the new approach that will produce the needed changes for success. Many successful people use hypnosis for breaking out their deeply held ineffective belief systems and reaching their goals by changing behaviors that are no longer effective. These can be achieved in an office environment, on the phone or through tapes of self-hypnosis. You, as the client, will have complete control and will be able to self direct the process toward your desired goals.
The process induces a relaxing calming feeling that allows the mind to reach a meditative state. You are relaxed, but alert and sometimes will still be aware of your surroundings. This state is a form of trance. Trance, is natural state that we are often in without realizing it. Sometimes when we are daydreaming while driving all of a sudden come back to a conscious state and wonder how we got there. That is a self-induced trance state. There is nothing scary or frightening, if we realize we all drift to that level many times naturally. Everyone can reach it if they want to be hypnotized and are willing to release any misconceptions or fears of the process.
