Welcome to Mind's Eye Hypnosis
If you are ready to change the direction of your life, and overcome obstacles holding you back, you have come to the right place!
We have all experienced times in our lives when we would like to free ourselves from old patterns and make a fresh start, but just not quite sure how to break through to that next level. All of us have a tendency to become slaves to our subconscious thoughts holding us back. Hypnosis is a way to befriend your subconscious and have it work with you, rather than against you, to achieve a happy and fulfilling life.
What Is Hypnosis
Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person's attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention -- with the help of a trained therapist -- on specific thoughts or tasks.
How Does Hypnosis Work?
Hypnosis is considered an aid to psychotherapy (counseling or therapy) because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. Also, hypnosis enables people to perceive some things differently, such as blocking an awareness of pain.
Hypnosis is, perhaps, one of the most misunderstood and controversial methods of psychological treatment. The myths and misconceptions that surround hypnotherapy mostly stem from people’s ideas about stage hypnotism.
The fact is, however, that hypnosis is a genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice. Simply put, hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. While under hypnosis (i.e., in a hypnotic trance), it seems many people are much more open to helpful suggestions than they usually are.
