Hypnosis has been used safely for thousands of years, by ancient Egyptians, the Australian Aborigines, by the North American Native Peoples, in the Indian sub-continent, in Europe, and in a wide range of religious traditions including the Hindu and Buddhist cultures, Christian monastic prayer, and many others.
Put very simply, hypnosis is achieved when a person’s brainwave activity slows to 14 cycles per second or slower, that is, Alpha or Theta waves. These are states that everyone experiences everyday, as they wake up or go to sleep slowly. They can also be experienced doing a mundane or repetitive job, such as driving a journey you do often and realising that you’ve ‘been somewhere else’ whilst also safely driving a car.
So, I won’t swing a watch in front of your eyes, nor will I be able to command you to do anything you don’t want to. During hypnosis you are aware all the time, and any therapy during hypnosis will be fully discussed and agreed with you beforehand.
All I ask of you is that you relax, bring an open mind, and enjoy the relaxation and the positive changes this remarkable technique can bring.
