Hypnosis is a proven and time-tested technique for improving a wide spectrum of conditions and for achieving your goals. For example, hypnosis can eliminate unwanted phobias or undesirable habits such as smoking. Hypnosis can help you to better understand yourself. It can help you turn your negative feelings into positive ones.
Hypnosis is a safe, naturally occurring frame of mind. It allows us to bypass the conscious mind while increasing awareness and access to the subconscious mind where suggestions are accepted and acted upon with a powerful effect. A trained clinical hypnotist will act as your guide. This is not sleep and no one takes over your mind. In fact, hypnosis gives you more control to make the changes that you want to make.
Many of us have had difficulty eliminating unwanted behaviors. This is because it is much harder to do with your conscious mind which uses logic, rationalization and willpower to make changes. The conscious mind also contains what is known as the critical factor, which must be bypassed in order for you to accept any suggestion that conflicts with your existing limiting beliefs or habits. The subconscious mind, however, is able to change bad habits by readily accepting positive suggestions.
