Waroonga Therapy Centre - Hypnotherapy

Main picture


When people think of the word hypnosis or hypnotherapy, they normally think of stage hypnosis. Whereas hypnotherapy is based on co-operation between the hypnotherapist and the client in changing/removing an unwanted feeling or behaviour. The hypnotherapist helps the client become more relaxed and attentive. The hypnotherapist then makes suggestions which are intended to be helpful to the clients’ problem/condition/issue.
Hypnotherapy involves an alteration in the experience of consciousness. You become absorbed in a central experience, dissociated or distanced from your normal perceptions, thoughts and feelings, and responsive to suggestions which are in your interest to pursue. It is a process of communicating ideas and resources that are drawn from your subconscious mental process.

Will I be awake during Hypnotherapy?
Yes. You will be in a state of relaxation, and will normally be aware of what is said in hypnotherapy session.

Can anyone be hypnotised?
People vary in their capacity to be hypnotised but most people have experienced it naturally in the form of daydreaming, driving somewhere without realising how they got there, being injured, for example while playing football, but not feeling any pain, listening to music or watching television, and being transported away. The trance experience appears to be effective whether it is light, medium or deep.
