Hypnotherapy means the use of suggestion to help with a problem, by giving suggestions to the unconscious mind whilst the person is in a relaxed, trace state.

Trance is a natural state that we go into throughout the day. For example, day dreaming is a form of trance. If you were lost in thought while driving and you arrive at your destination without realising then this is also a form of trance. Another example would be if you were absorbed while reading a book and you didn’t hear someone talking to you?

This can also happen just before you go to sleep at night or just before wakening in the morning. So these are examples of naturalistic trance. A trance means a narrowed attention, dissociated awareness, and increased rapport with and access to the unconscious mind.

Hypnotic trance differs from naturalistic trance, in hypnotic trance occurs intentionally, rather than accidentally. Trance typically is deepened beyond the light naturalistic trance state. Hypnotic trance is applied to a therapeutic purpose.

During trance the conscious mind the critical, logical mind that judges constantly is switched off allowing the unconscious mind to be accessed. The unconscious mind does not analyse facts, and is free to accommodate new ideas.

What is the conscious mind?
The conscious mind is what we ordinarily think of when we say ‘my mind.’ It’s associated with thinking, analysing and making judgments and decisions. The conscious mind is actively sorting and filtering its perceptions because only so much information can reside in consciousness at once.

What is the unconscious mind?
The unconscious mind holds all awareness that is not presently in the conscious mind. All memories, feelings and thoughts that are out of conscious awareness are by definition ‘unconscious.’ It is also called the subconscious and is known as the dreaming mind or deep mind. The unconscious mind handles the responsibility of keeping the body running well. It has memory of every event we’ve ever experienced; it is the source and storehouse of our emotions.

The mind and body work as one and we are said to be in balance when this is the case.
In the example of anxiety when the mind is fearful of something then we get different responses occurring throughout the body and mind. The heart begins to beat faster, shortness of breath dizziness and nausea. Feeling of dread and difficulty concentrating (to mention only a few symptoms)

it is important to listen to what the client presents with in an empathetic non-judgemental way, allowing the client to express what problems/issues they have, and what resources they require thus “making change possible”
