By Shana Rosenthal, Certified Consulting Hypnotist There are many misconceptions surrounding hypnosis – the image of a swinging watch or people being made to do humiliating things such as clucking like a chicken or sucking on lemons and the words ‘you are feeling sleepy… very sleepy’ is regretfully what springs to mind whenever people hear the word ‘hypnosis’.
However, hypnosis is far from being a frivolous party trick; it offers the very real opportunity to change lives by re-wiring the brain into letting go of harmful habits such as cigarettes or overeating, and could help free people from crippling fears and worries.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to ask ‘Will hypnosis work for me?’ if you’re thinking about trying it out for yourself. With so many myths surrounding this practice, it is important to learn the truth about a hypnotic approach and how it can bring powerful changes to your life.
What makes it work?
The hypnotist can get rid of unhealthy attitudes, beliefs and behaviors by using suggestion and vizual imagery to re-wire the subconscious. Unlike the conscious mind which only remembers a modest amount of what we go through, the subconscious takes note of everything, without us knowing about it.
Hypnosis functions by gaining access to these concealed memories and ideas in order to create new, more favorable beliefs and habits.
The stereotypical belief is that hypnosis involves sending you into a deep sleep. However, the reality is that you will be directed into a significantly focused yet relaxed state of mind, which is a 100% natural process giving you the ability to open the door to innumerable possibilities for self-exploration and permanent change.
Entering into the state of hypnosis allows access to your own behaviors and experiences in ways not usually available.
With the guidance of a trained professional, it is possible to develop innate abilities that enable making profound changes in your thoughts, feelings and behaviors possible. The natural state of hypnosis allows changes to be made easily and permanently.
What are the benefits?

With over 100 years of positive regard and the backing of numerous individuals and celebrities, hypnosis offers a tried-and-tested, drug-free, natural and highly beneficial option for a broad range of challenges.
