Put as simply as possible, hypnosis occurs within a naturally occurring, very slow human brainwave rhythm, called Theta. It is usually described as being in a state of deep relaxation with an inner focus on your thoughts and feelings.
Science tells us that, as humans, we have five brain waves that we transition in and out of throughout each day. The fully awake state is called Beta. It is our normal waking consciousness with a heightened state of awareness, logic and critical reasoning. The next state is the Alpha state, and in this brain wave rhythm we are in a relaxed daydreamy, meditative state. A typical Alpha state is when we are relaxed and perhaps deeply engrossed in reading a book or watching a movie. During this state your critical mind is not as active, but your imagination, memory, concentration and learning are all heightened. The next state which is the main hypnosis state is called Theta. Most of us can easily relate to this deeply relaxed, almost floating feeling, as it’s a very pleasant state we transition in and out of just as we’re waking in the morning, and, also at night just as we are about to drift off into sleep. Most of us just want to stay in bed and drift a bit longer in this wonderful feeling of relaxation.
Using words, visualization, inner focus, imagination, and other techniques, your hypnotherapist will gently guide you into this deep state of relaxation during a hypnotherapy session. You will most likely experience hypnosis as a very pleasant, gentle and uplifting feeling, whilst being fully awake and aware of everything happening.
In this deeply relaxed state that you can communicate with your subconscious mind to make the changes you want. Your subconscious mind is always working to help you, and when it realizes that these changes serve to optimize your life, in whatever way that may be (stop smoking, weight loss, eliminate phobias, fears etc.), the subconscious will work to remove the old unhelpful, unwanted ways of being. In a similar way, the positive, helpful new ways of living can also be introduced.

Thousands of people every day use hypnosis all around the world to help then resolve their issues. Hypnosis is safe, natural and drug free and very effective.
