Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.


William James

What is hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a wonderfully relaxed state of mind and body. The word Hypnosis is derived from the Greek word 'hypnos', which means sleep. To this day there is no single agreed upon explanation of what hypnosis actually is or what happens inside our mind during it. What has been proven and agreed upon though, is the benefits, both mentally and physically that can be achieved using the state of hypnosis.


Hypnosis or versions of it have been around since time itself, there is documented evidence of ancient cultures using sleep temples and shamans for everything from healing to communing with the gods about seasonal rains. But actual recorded history of hypnosis began in the early 1700's.


Due to the subjective nature of hypnosis and it's experiences, empirical evidence is somewhat hard to find that gives a definite answer of what it is and what can be specifically achieved during hypnosis.


What we do know is, Hypnosis is a tool used to relax the body and mind, and as a result quitens the constant chattering of our conscious mind long enough for our sub-conscious mind to begin learning new ways to addressing issues in our life. Combining specific techniques with the hypnotic state such as direct and indirect suggestion, hypno-analysis, regression and metaphor, solutions to life long problems can be resolved in a fraction of the time you have been experiencing it for.


What can I expect?


Firstly, you should only ever agree to see a hypnotherapist whom you feel completely comfortable with and who takes the time to satisfy any and all of your questions, nothing will prevent success for you quicker than lack of trust in your practitioner.


Once you have selected your practitioner, all that is required of you as a client is to open your mind to the possibility of getting what you want easily. Your intention is the single greatest component of success within any hypnosis session, if you believe that nothing will change, then nothing will, you will prove yourself right every time. But if you set an intention to get what you want, then miracles can happen. Set a firm intention for what you want, then let your Hypnotherapist take care of the rest, simply relax and enjoy the ride.


You can expect to feel very relaxed and peaceful;

You will hear, and remember everything when you come out of hypnosis;

You will be in complete control at all times; and

Your mind will only take on suggestions that will benefit you.


What is NLP?


Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is possibly the most effective method for change in the world today. It is basically the study of subjective experience - its a revolutionary approach to human communication and development.


Neuro - what is happening in our minds (consciously and unconsciously);

Linguistic - our use of language as descriptions of our thoughts, feelings and sensory abilities;

Programming - patterns of behaviour and what we learn and repeat throughout our life.


NLP enables you to understand what makes you the way you are - feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and how you make sense of your life and the world you live in. It assists you in learning how to think and communicate more effectively with both yourself and others.


Based on the discovery that by changing how you think, you can transform what you think. It helps modify your thought and behavioural patterns to suit your goals. NLP literally helps you develop better thinking styles - for faster learning, better relationships and greater success.


NLP will help improve your communication skills, confidence, release unwanted negative emotions and beliefs, develop a positive self image, give an understanding about behaviours in people, enhance your sales abilities, increase motivation and keep a sense of balance and purpose in your life!
