Make Positive Changes in  YOUR life with

The Mind Factor! 

   The Mind Factor is your own subconscious mind.  This is what "drives" you. It controls your attitude, actions and behaviour.  And for there to be any permanent change in any of these first it needs to change on your subconscious mind level. And that is where hypnosis specialises... the subconscious mind. 

  What is Hypnosis... 

Hypnosis is a trance state (the alpha state) and a completely natural state. Everyone experiences this a number of times each day, and through the night.  Any time you daydream or when your mind wanders off to another time or place.  Or, when totally focused, such as watching TV or a movie, studying, driving a car, focus on your sport, etc. These are all examples of an everyday natural state or hypnosis. And at night, you go through this state as you drift off to sleep and as wake up, and a number of times during the night - this is where you dream (whether you remember your dreams or not).   

It is in this natural state the inward focus of the mind increases so that the subconscious mind becomes more receptive and responsive to positive suggestions and ideas. This is the way you can make positive changes.

Hypnosis is like the relaxed mental state we experience between wakefulness and sleep, indicated by the same alpha brain wave patterns as hypnosis.  As well as occurring naturally many times each day and night, hypnosis can be brought about deliberatly, usually through focusing and relaxation. You can take yourself into hypnosis (self hypnosis) or have a professionally qualified hypnotherapist assist and guide you.

When you are guided into hypnosis it is not like being asleep or unconscious (a popular misconception) because you are very aware while you are experiencing it.   You will, of course, hear the hypnotherapist's voice and other sounds, and you could come out of hypnosis at any time, if you needed to, or wanted to.  You can speak, if necessary, and more (answer questions, scratch your nose, etc). You are in full control at all times.  But, when you are so relaxed, you'll probably just want to keep on enjoying the feeling.

What is Hypnotherapy....

Hypnotherapy is simply hypnosis + therapy. And it can powerfully assist you in many ways to make positive changes in your life. It can help you with your relationships, your personal life your work, your sport, your health, your learning, your spiritual development, and more.  Suggestions accepted by the subconscious mind can also have a very therapeutic effect on the mind and body.  

Hypnotherapy has been likened to meditation, and while both allow you to achieve similar levels of relaxation, there is a very major difference:

  • With meditation you are usually attempting to "empty" or clear your mind, letting go of everyday thoughts and worries.

  • With hypnotherapy the therapist gives you appropriate, positive suggestions, using techniques that can assist you to achieve your goals. So instead of "emptying" your mind, you are powerfully focused on positive ideas and goal orientated suggestions.

There are many reasons why we do something which we now no longer want to do. E.g. lacking focus or confidence, having a phobia, or wanting to change some behaviour issue we have. And there are a number of ways of dealing with each of these with hypnotherapy, as it is not only a science, it is also an art.  And the knowledge, experience and the skill of the hypnotherapist can go a long way to ensuring a positive outcome for you.  

It is also important that as a client, you maintain a positive outlook about achieving your goal, and be willing to do what it takes to achieve it is also important. 

While hypnotherapy can, in some instances,
seem like a “magic wand”,
they are usually found in fairy tales!

The reality is that we are all different.  We each respond differently to situations, and so it is with hypnosis. Some people can achieve their goal within 1-3 sessions, and others need more help. That is part of being the unique person you are.  However, with Hypnotherapy, it usual takes a much shorter time (i.e. less sessions than with some other therapies) to make positive changes. Therefore it can be very cost effective.

Hypnotherapy can be used for many things– it has a very broad application base. It has been used for many years with medical treatment, and can be used to make many different kinds of changes. Some examples are listed below. There are many more….
