Definition of Hypnotherapist
A Hypnotherapist uses Hypnosis to induce a deep state of relaxation in a client, during which their sub or unconscious minds are highly receptive to new perspectives and ideas.
The reason Hypnosis is so effective lies in the extreme power of our unconscious mind, which is responsible for keeping us safe and helping us. Our unconscious mind is thought to process literally 100,000’s of pieces of information at any given time, whilst storing over 400,000,000 relating to our beliefs, attitudes, behavioral habits, memories, etc.
Our unconscious mind takes care of all our automatic responses, such as the regulation of our breathing, blood circulation and tissue repair, all without us having to consciously think about it. But the unconscious mind also stores all our learned responses, i.e. behaviors we’ve learnt since birth. These might include walking, picking things up or riding a bike, to name some of the positive ones and again, all of these we do without consciously having to think about it.
But the unconscious mind also stores our less resourceful and sometimes problematic learned responses or behavioral habits, which might include being afraid of flying, or having anxiety in certain situations, or plain old smoking. So in order to modify some of these a responses, or habits or even behaviors, it follows that we must first access the unconscious mind and re-programme it.
