There are many different ways to answer this but ill tell you how i see it. Its definitely nothing to fear, not in any way shape or form. You should look at hypnosis as a way of retraining the brain. Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, not sleep! That means that hypnosis is something we all experience but we might have different names for it – daydreaming, being miles away, being engrossed in a book or film are all states of hypnosis, or trance as some call it. Even time flying or time dragging are states of “trance” too.

There is a lot of scientific evidence to show that quite a lot of our lives happens subconsciously, that we are not directly aware of. But there is a lot of discussion about what exactly is a trance state and what isnt, and the truth is that there will probably be a lot more discussion for years to come yet, as hypnosis seems to be part of consciousness and we barely know anything about that yet. Even animals show some form of trance states, so it must have some evolutionary basis too. We drift in and out of trance states all day everyday and a hypnotherapist can help induce this state as opposed to waiting for it to occur.

Hypnosis can be used in many ways, it can be useful to get some insights into our own lives. With trance a client can find some information that they need to help them realise whats broken ,because then they know what needs fixing- the next stage. Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to see past events in a different light, with the subconscious mind healing to see things differently, can make massive differences in peoples feelings.

Above all hypnosis is a way to improve ourselves, it can help us tap into the potential that we all have. Dont we all have something we would like to improve upon?
