Unless the subconscious mind has the same programming as the conscious mind, the power of positive thinking will not work.

Hypnosis is a strong result based therapeutic modality and tool for success, transforming lives and empowering from within. It can be defined as a natural and altered state of awareness. Why altered you ask? This is because we as humans have two states of consciousness: the awakened state and sleep state. However, in hypnosis, there is the altered state that is induced by a series of suggestions from a hypnotherapist.
In addition, clinical Hypnotherapy is very different from stage hypnosis, which is for entertainment purposes only. It’s based on science and biology. Hypnotherapy is very beneficial in the development of a person because it can unravel a persons hidden potential that has become dormant, like problem solving.
State of Mind
Our conscious state is our state of awareness, also known as our quality of awareness. Consciousness is being aware of external and internal stimuli that affect the awareness we hold within ourselves. The conscious mind takes up about 12% of our mind power. On the other hand, our subconscious is the part of the mind which one is not fully aware of, but that influences ones actions and feelings. Underneath the layers of critical-thought functions of our conscious mind is where all our past memories and experiences are stored away like files.
You know that state right as you’re falling asleep where you are still kind of aware of what’s going on around you, but you are also aware that you are falling asleep? We’ll, that’s the hypnotic trance state. You’re never really asleep. It’s a super calming and relaxing feeling and you will hear and be aware of everything that is going on around you. Actually, the truth is that people come to a hypnotherapist to gain control, NOT to lose control.
How it Works
Through hypnotherapy, your hypnotherapist can give the subconscious suggestions to change unwanted behaviors. In the hypnotic trance state, information can more easily come up revealing the reason of a particular block or problem that consciously they would not be able to access. At the same time, the subconscious part of the mind is constantly deleting, distorting, and generalizing based on time/space, language, memories, our programming, values, beliefs, and attitudes. This is what drives our behaviors. During this process, the mind becomes a sensitive receptacle to the hypnotherapist’s suggestions. These suggestions can be planted firmly into the subconscious mind in order to overwrite limiting belief structures.
Hypnosis has overall benefits on mental, physical, and emotional health. Also, many issues and conditions can be addressed with hypnotherapy. See below for a list of our hypnotherapist’s specialties.
