Hypnosis Ė What is it?
For many people the word hypnosis brings forth feelings of fear and apprehension. They think that they are unconscious and under the control of the hypnotist. Nothing could be further from the truth. When you are in hypnosis, you are deeply relaxed physically, but mentally many times more alert than in your normal state of awareness. You hear and respond to everything and are an active participant in the session. You have complete control over what you will or will not do and will instantly reject any suggestion that is uncomfortable for you.
If you like and want the suggestions given, the suggestions are allowed to enter your subconscious mind. This part of you is like a computer and must respond to what is allowed to enter it.
We are all what the programming in our subconscious mind perceives us to be. If this part of the mind views us as fat, then we are fat. If it perceives that we smoke, we smoke and so on with shyness, poor self-image, and other problems.
Using hypnosis, we are able to access this subconscious computer and re-program ourselves to be whatever we wish to be.
I donít know if I can be hypnotized!
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. You enter some form of hypnosis several times everyday. Anyone can enter hypnosis very easily providing they have the following two things: 1.) They must want to be hypnotized (no one can hypnotize you against your will.) 2.) They must not have any fears or misconceptions about hypnosis and how it works.
Hypnosis is a 100% consent state!
If at any time you want to emerge from the state for any reason, you will instantly open your eyes and become fully alert. No one can keep you in hypnosis against your will.
What is a session like?
Your session at the Holland Hypnosis Center will be an extremely pleasant experience, which consists of four distinct parts.
First, Mrs. Mayo will explain in detail what hypnosis is and how it will work for you. She will answer all your questions and discuss any misconceptions that you may still have concerning hypnosis. When this part of the session is complete you will know more about hypnosis than 99 percent of the general public.
Second, Mrs. Mayo will discuss your goals or issues with you and how you can quickly achieve the desired results.
Third, when you are absolutely comfortable with the idea of hypnosis and feel good about working with Mrs. Mayo, the actual hypnosis session will begin. You will be guided into a very deep state of physical and mental relaxation. You will feel very relaxed but extremely mentally alert. Youíll be aware of everything going on around you. Suggestions for the change you desire will then be given to your powerful subconscious and become a part of you. The old programming that was keeping you from achieving your goals or which was causing a problem is removed allowing you to accomplish goals and eliminate problems.
You will then be emerged from hypnosis with strong suggestions of good health and positive attitude. You will feel better than you have in a long, long time.
The fourth and final part of your session consists of a brief discussion of the session making sure your desired change is felt within you and, if necessary, setting up your next appointment.
How many sessions are needed to stop smoking?
We have invested a lot of time developing our stop smoking program. The program is very successful at helping our clients to become Non-Smokers in just one session. The only requirement is that you must honestly want to become a Non-Smoker! When you are sure you are ready Ė call for an appointment so that you may reach your goal of becoming and remaining a Non-Smoker for the rest of your life!
How about weight control?
Each individual is different. However, as a general rule, if you are less than 25 pounds overweight, two or three sessions are usually sufficient. If you are more than 25 pounds overweight, itís possible that more than two or three sessions are needed to achieve your goal. A medical referral may be required.
What other areas of my life can hypnosis help?
We want you to reach for your highest potential. Often, people are stuck and donít realize that messages stored in their subconscious mind may be operating to hold them back. Hypnosis may be used to help manage stress, improve confidence, overcome sleep problems, deal with grief, improve memory, dialog with a higher self, manage pain, create better health habits, and more.
