Hypnosis – What is it all about?

By guest blogger: Jen Froggatt
If I was to say to you that hypnosis could help you relax and de-stress, you would think of watch being swayed side to side and being told, 'you are getting very sleepy', am I right? Well you couldn't be further from the truth. Although hypnotherapy is a relatively new therapy, many have been using it as a relaxation technique for years.
Hypnotherapy works by communicating with your subconscious mind, to help you overcome negative thought patterns which in turn helps you to relax. A qualified hypnotherapist will help you achieve a deeply relaxed state (different to sleep) before starting your hypnotherapy session so you can use your full imagination.  Many compare this state as being in a daydream.
Hypnosis for stress can be very effective because hypnotherapy can help alter your reactions to possible stressful situations. A hypnotherapist can change your thought pattern so when faced with these situations you have a much more positive reaction. This is because it is not the situation that causes stress (otherwise everyone would be stressed about the same thing at the same time) it's the way we react to this situation that causes stress. When you are less stressed you will then find easier to relax and wind down at the end of the day.
