How Hypnotherapy Works

Guided and Focused Concentration

In hypnosis you are guided into a relaxed and focused state of concentration. Hypnosis is not sleep. It is actually a heightened state of awareness in which you are aware of everything that is going on around you.

Hypnosis is used to strengthen positive messages and weaken or neutralize negative messages that are in your subconscious mind. This makes it possible to affect permanent change.Under hypnosis you are provided with positive suggestions that help you achieve your goals.

 

Hypnotherapy Can Change Neural Pathways

One of the most interesting aspects of using hypnosis is its ability to change neural pathways. The longer you do something repeatedly, the more likely you’re going to do it out of habit. Every time you experience or think about something the stronger the neural pathway connected to that idea grows.

For example, you were bitten by a dog as a child. As you grew, every time you saw a dog you experienced fear or panic. This repeated reaction to dogs creates a very large neural pathway and causes the fear or panic response to dogs to persist.

Neural pathways are not just created in response to fears or phobias.  We can develop strong neural pathways relating to all kinds of things such as anxiety, emotional eating, smoking, nail-biting, insomnia etc. Hypnosis can be used to interrupt damaging patterns. By interrupting the pattern, new neural pathways can form and you no longer respond in a negative way to triggers.
