Usually not. Modern hypnosis deals with effective ways to conquer cravings.People who put on weight just substitute smoking for eating or some other unhealthy substitute.By replacing smoking with healthy hypnotic techniques the cycle can be broken.You are not born a smoker.Hypnosis aims to help you get your body back to its natural state.

What does hypnosis feel like2023-02-10T11:27:25+00:00

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness.You will feel very relaxed and be in a state of tranquillity.It is very similar to enjoying a nice daydream. So the state of hypnosis is a familiar feeling to all of us.It is perfectly safe[100%].And something we do naturally on a daily basis.You can open your eyes at anytime.You don’t lose control. Infact you gain control. Sometimes you may go really deep.sometimes go may go into light trance.What ever level your mind/body needs at that moment is the right level.It is not some magical zonked out state.Clients often really enjoy very deep states of relaxation.This is clinical hypnosis,not stage hypnosis.Stage hypnosis is where a lot of the myths about hypnosis comes from.With stage hypnosis the volunteer is totally under[somnambulistic state].Only 10%of people go that deep straight away.But for clinical hypnosis being that deep is unhelpful.You go to therapy to gain control,not lose it.Once you close your eyes you focus on the subconscious mind.Often referred to as focused attention.In trance you can access the subconscious where your beliefs and habits are.Trance helps to bypass the “critical factor” so powerful suggestions can be directed deep into the subconscious.

Hypnosis is not a magic wand2023-02-10T11:27:47+00:00

What I mean by this.Sometimes hypnosis is so effective it may seem like magic.But its therapy similar to other types of therapy.I help the client to help themselves.Hypnosis facilitates change.Its still down to the client.Every body responds differently.And at a different rate.What takes one client one session to do,may take another client 3 sessions to achieve . Im sure you can appreciate what Im saying.
