What is Hypnosis? Q & A

What is hypnosis? 

Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention.
The state of hypnosis can be compared to daydreaming and when we are absorbed in a good book or movie. As we focus on the movie, there are times we can forget we are in the cinema and easily absorb and take in the movie.
How is it achieved?
Through the utilization of imagination and fixation of attention.
Is everyone able to be hypnotized?
Everyone, given the right conditions, enters hypnosis because it is a very natural state of being.
What can it be used for?
Weight loss-quit smoking-stress management-alcohol control-eliminate fears and phobias-confidence and self-esteem issues-sleeping-gambling-exams-nail biting-relationship issues-addictions-grief-limiting beliefs and behaviours-bed wetting and much more
How successful is it?
Hypnotherapy utilizes the power of the subconscious mind to plant positive seeds of suggestion and because it can bypass the critical faculty of the mind it can be accepted and acted upon automatically. So it is highly successful because it is at the subconscious level of the mind where the retraining of the mind happens and where all habits are held, and real change occurs. Just like once we have learned to ride a bike and we no longer have to think about pedaling.
 The rest comes down to the skill of the hypnotherapist and the open willingness of the client to follow through with the guide and suggestions of the hypnotist.
What results can be expected?
Within one to three sessions a significant improvement or complete, lasting change.
Anything else you would like to add?
Hypnosis is most effective when the client is genuinely ready and willing to make the changes.
The client is always in control and can reject any suggestions that they are not happy with without any guidance from the hypnotherapist.
Hypnosis is a powerful,effective beautiful phenomena.
