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

Hypnosis is a tool for success, which transforms lives and empowers from within. Hypnosis can be defined as a natural and altered state of awareness. Why altered you ask? Because we as humans poses two states of consciousness: the awakened state and sleep state. However, in hypnosis, there is the provoked or as previously mentioned, the altered state that is induced by a series of suggestions from a hypnotherapist.
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. We operate from the conscious mind less than 5% of the day. The conscious mind takes up about 12% of our mind power.
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. The subconscious makes up about 88% of our mind power.
The altered state of awareness: You know that state right as you are 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 are never really asleep. It is a super calming and relaxing feeling and you will hear and be aware of everything that is going on around you. The truth is that people come to a hypnotherapist to gain control, NOT to lose control.
Hypnosis is a strong result based therapeutic modality. Clinical Hypnotherapy is very different from stage hypnosis, which is for entertainment purposes only. Clinical Hypnotherapy is based on science and biology. Hypnotherapy is very beneficial in the development of a person, in that it can unravel a persons hidden potential that has become dormant, like problem solving.
Through hypnotherapy, the 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. Our subconscious is constantly deleting, distorting, and generalizing based on time/space, language, memories, our programming, values and beliefs, and attitudes. This is what drives our behaviors. During this procedure, the mind becomes a sensitive receptacle to the hypnotherapists suggestions, which can be planted firmly into the subconscious mind in order to overwrite limiting belief structures.
Hypnotherapy is known to work with many issues and conditions. Hypnosis has overall benefits on mental, physical, and emotional health. See below for a list of our hypnotherapist’s specialties.
