Relax the conscious mind

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that relaxes the conscious mind allowing access to the subconscious mind to facilitate desired change in your life. In this state of relaxation the subconscious mind is open to positive suggestions while the conscious mind is still completely aware.

How does Hypnotherapy work?



The Hypnotic State is the optimum state for making changes in your life. The doorway between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind is opened, memories become easily accessible, and new information can be stored without resistance. In the Hypnotic State you are experiencing without questioning, without critical judgement or analysis, rendering you open to positive suggestion. You cannot be forced into hypnotherapy, neither can outcomes be forced. For example someone who wants to give up smoking, but is not dedicated, cannot be forced into quitting. However, with commitment, hypnotherapy can achieve positive, amazing results.


The Conscious Mind

The conscious mind, which accounts for 10% of our mind, is working right now as you are reading this. It is that part of you that is aware of what is going on right now. Choices and decisions are made by the conscious mind.

The conscious mind is logical and analytical and it is where we spend most of our time. It basically performs four functions.

The conscious mind analyses and is a problem-solver by evaluating whatever concern, situation or issue has its attention The conscious mind makes decisions that we often think are automatic, but in reality engage a part of our conscious mind. The conscious mind exercises what we call will power. Will Power seldom lasts, does it? You mean well, but conscious intent fails and the old behaviour reoccurs. The conscious mind also is the place of working memory. It is the memory we use every day to function.

Where we all live however, is in the level below this level of awareness, the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind accounts for the other 90%.

Conscious decisions are influenced by the data stored in our subconscious mind.


The Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind, which accounts for 90% of our mind, can be compared to a computer in that it stores the data for all the experiences we have ever had.

One of the most important functions of the subconscious mind is that it automatically controls our bodily functions; breathing, heart beating, eyes blinking, the immune system and organs, muscles, bones and tissues from the cellular level to its inter-relatedness as a whole body functioning.

The subconscious mind is creative, intuitive, irrational, and emotional.

Being irrational can work for you or against you.

Because it’s illogical it can make you into anything you want to be, i.e, rich, famous, slender, happy. It can also keep you stuck in negative behaviour. It contains your values, your core beliefs about your self, every thought you have ever had, every word that has ever been said to you, every experience you have ever had.

Just like a computer operates only on it’s programming, so does your subconscious mind. Also like a computer, your subconscious mind can be reprogrammed.

We are constantly reprogramming our subconscious mind through our experiences and self-talk. If our internal dialogue is saying we are fat, a smoker, a success, a failure, then that is what we become.

This programming has been placed in there from many sources and it must operate on this programming.
