How Can It Help Me
There are many definitions of
hypnotism or hypnosis but we
believe the simplest is often the best, so here is the simple
definition of Hypnosis:
is a method of communicating directly with the part of the mind
responsible for habits.”
Humans are creatures of
habit. Think about something you do automatically, like
driving a car. You don't have to think consciously
about accelerating, braking, turning, etc., because your unconscious
mind takes care of it for you.
Your unconscious or subconscious
mind is your
auto-pilot. Its job is to take repetitive behaviors, i.e., things that
you need to do over and over again, and make them automatic so that you
can do them without thinking.
Have you ever noticed yourself
with a cigarette in your mouth and forgotten how it got there?
That's because smoking is an automatic behaviour. The process
of lighting a cigarette and bringing it up to our mouth
several hundred times a day (at an average of 10 puffs/cigarette and 20
cigarettes/day that's 200 times we lift a cigarette to our mouth)
creates a very powerful habit.
If smoking were a conscious behaviour, you just decide to quit smoking
and you'd just stop, but it doesn't work that way because smoking is
controlled by the unconscious mind.
You have 2 main parts to your
mind. First, there is the conscious
mind, which which is the logical part of the mind that
we use to think with and plan.
For example, right now you are
aware of reading these words, you may be thinking about how to quit
smoking, or whatever else that your conscious attention
is currently drawn towards.
When you first began to smoke,
you didn't start out smoking 20 or 30 a day. You were very
conscious of the fact that you were smoking and it took a lot of effort
and will power. After a while your unconscious mind recognized
that this was a repetitive behaviour, and it
took over that repetitive behavior so your conscious mind was free to
think about other things. This is the point where smoking was
something you were "just doing", and it was no longer easy for you to

ineffective, but extremely hard work.
What’s more, it
can be frustrating when you try to stop and fail; try again and
Hypnosis is a method of
directly with your unconscious mind where habits are kept, then
changing them in an easy and relaxed way. This is a far more healthy
and positive approach than trying to force change to occur.
Einstein once said, "Imagination
important than knowledge." Those who understand hypnosis know that
imagination is more powerful than will power. Imagination is of the
subconscious mind; will power is of the conscious mind.

Once the hypnotherapist has
guided you into
the state of hypnosis, then it's easy for you to influence your
unconscious mind. You will be able to change life-long habits such as
smoking, overeating, irrational fears, phobic responses, etc., with a
minimum of fuss.
It's all done, not through
forcing things, but through relaxing and enabling the more powerful,
