How does Hypnotherapy Work?

how hypnotherapy works dubaiThe human brain experiences several variations of consciousness, ranging from fully alert to drowsy or fully asleep. Researcher indicates that hypnosis encourages particular brain wave activity which “allows the mind to take in and adopt new ideas, while others suggest that hypnosis accesses the ‘unconscious mind,’ which is more open to new ideas than the rational ‘conscious mind.'” Your hypnotherapist will provide you with hypnotherapy tailored to help you address your specific area of concern, such as addiction, a fear of flying, anxiety, etc.

During hypnotherapy, your therapist will induce a state of relaxed consciousness. Once the mind enters this state of relaxation, therapeutic suggestions will positively impact your behaviours, attitudes, and perceptions. Together with your therapist, you will learn various methods to relax quickly and efficiently. You’ll learn how to switch off your active mind before you reach a state of fear, anxiety, or negativity. You’ll determine the areas of your life that would benefit from hypnotherapy. Additionally, you’ll learn how to practice self-hypnosis from your home.
