What is hypnosis?

Many people aren’t sure exactly hypnosis is. And it's important to get some sort of understanding before you can make an educated decision to explore this option further. The doubts and scepticism mostly stem from not being aware of what to expect when it comes to a hypnotherapy session.

What would the session be like?

Maybe you're a little curious now, to know what a hypnotherapy session would be like? The initial session is about one and a half hours. This is because it involves an in depth ‘pre-talk’, where you get the opportunity to express whatever it is you want to achieve in your life. This is very important as the first session is the laying down the foundations on which the future sessions would be built.

Once the goals are set, the hypnosis session would begin. Subsequent sessions begin with a catch up to track progress and a greater emphasis on the hypnotherapy. With each session, most clients can achieve deeper and deeper states. This is partially due to the familiarity with Tim, the clinic, the process the chair and so on. But also there a part of the clients consciousness that knows what to do and how to make the changes. It's a pleasant process and it's quite quick. This is because there's a direct connection established with the clients subconscious mind.

What about the subconscious mind?

The human mind is miraculous masterpiece and it can't be reduced to a simple explanation. But a sketch of the subconscious could be that it's essentially a vast and endless database where all your memories, habits and learnings are stored. However, you are not aware of the subconscious in ones conscious state. When you’re in the hypnotic state, suggestions are made directly to the subconscious mind and these can override all old ideas and patterns. In case of depression and anxiety, hypnotherapy can help replace all your anxious thoughts and give you the tools to reprogram your mind with the desired result of calmness and clarity.

What is an anxiety attack?

It's a unpleasant state that has many descriptions, people can be anxious and not even even aware of it. It’s basically a term that’s used to describe feelings like nervousness, worry or unease regarding something perceived. The symptoms are varied too, some experience intense fear, nausea and dizziness also a complete drain in energy and a dulling of cognitive function.

These experiences and feelings are triggered by 'something' which in turn stimulates the amygdala, which is a part of the brain situated deep in the temporal lobes and is considered part of the limbic system. As with the mind, the human brain is truly amazing and this part of the brain is an ancient part. A simple analogy could be that it's like a light that that only work at night if there is motion detected. But the motion detector (amygdala) is over sensitive and malfunctions, so the light can come on (anxiety attacks) for unknown reasons.

So when you've tried all other options, why not call Tim for a talk on the phone and take it from there.
