What is Hypnotherapy?

When a client sees our trained Hypnotherapist Stefanie, she will guide him or her to a relaxed state and the person will still hear everything and is in total control.

This is called an “induction” followed by a “deepener” and eventually re programming the subconscious mind with positive suggestions.

At the time of total relaxation a meditative state is reached and this is the time when the subconscious mind opens up, ready to take on board what it needs to hear to make positive changes for the future.

Our subconscious mind can’t differentiate between reality and imagination.Hence people who experience a panic attack experience symptoms and fear as if in real danger.

Our mind has two parts. The conscious mind and the subconscious mind. We are constantly aware of our conscious mind. We make decisions, we analyse situations, and we jump to conclusions with our conscious mind.

It is very easy to feel that our conscious mind is all that there is, but scientists say the conscious mind is only about 10% of our thinking capacity.

The other 90% is locked away in our subconscious mind.  Everything we have ever experienced or known is in the subconscious mind.  Including every single thought, word and every song and every loving act performed.

Most of us are not aware of the subconscious or its tremendous power to bring success and happiness into our lives. Changes of behaviour have to occur here where they were established in the first place.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to change an old belief system, which stops us from fully enjoying our life, into a new and positive one.
It can be very therapeutic and a very good break away from our stressed filled world to assist self-improvement.

After a session Stefanie will give the client a recording to listen to. By listening to this repeatedly, new neural pathways in the brain are being created. Over time the old neural pathways (with old behaviour patterns) will eventually break down and get flushed out of the system.

You are welcome to ask more questions.
