Hypnotherapy Facts


The Conscious & Subconscious Mind

subconscious mind


The conscious part of your mind is what you are reading this with, and when you are awake, it is aware of all that goes on in and around yourself, what you are feeling, thinking and experiencing, allowing you to know what you are doing and why. It is also the critical part of your mind and can interfere with changes you try to make.

Think of your subconscious mind as an internal computer that houses thousands of computer programs on which everything you have ever seen, heard, experienced, thought or believed are stored. The belief systems housed here are what will actually create your reality when it comes to reprogramming.

You are not consciously aware of these subconscious processes, but they influence how you feel and think based on what you believe.

In Therapy our goal is to access the inner mind and give it new concepts! The fastest and easiest way is by using hypnosis. When you relax your body and then your mind, a state of hypnosis is achieved in which you can access and re-program your subconscious computer for your own good.

You are not taking anything out; you are simply giving yourself new belief systems. Think of yourself now as a computer re-programmer. Using hypnosis, as these new concepts become a part of your inner mind and belief system, your subconscious mind is like a child and will take everything literally, accepting them with ease as long as they continue coming on a daily basis.

There are many myths and misconceptions regarding Hypnosis and the Hypnotherapy process.  Below are the actual facts regarding Hypnosis.


Fact 1 – Hypnosis is very simply: a natural state of mind in which the body and mind are extremely relaxed and yet the mind is also highly aware and focused.

In reality it is a state of focused concentration where the body and mind relax together. It has the ability to provide emotional and physical healing and has been widely and successfully used within the medical community for pain relief and hypno-anesthesia.

Fact 2 – It is in the subconscious mind that positive change takes place.

Fact 3 – The more you practice Hypnosis, the easier it gets.

An interesting fact about hypnosis is that the more you practice it, the easier it gets. Each time you allow yourself to enter hypnosis, you will go in easier, faster and deeper. This is simply exercising your mind, very much like physical exercise works on the body, and it will get stronger and more effective with each session.

Fact 4 – All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis.

You are always in control of your mind and your body while in hypnosis. You choose to enter hypnosis, stay in hypnosis, accept the suggestions, and emerge from hypnosis at all times.

Fact 5 – Hypnosis is merely a state of relaxation.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation in which:

  • You are in total control.
  • You can accept or reject any suggestions you hear.


Hypnosis is not:

  • Being controlled by someone else.
  • A loss of self control.
  • A state of unconsciousness.
  • A state of sleep.

Examples of everyday hypnotic states which you have already experienced naturally:

  • Driving the car
  • Taking the escalator
  • Watching TV, movies, computer screens or videos
  • Listening in a bored state to another person
  • Waking up and going to sleep
  • Daydreaming

So hypnosis is a very natural state of being that we all experience many times a day  to regenerate and renew…, and we are simply helping the process along during hypnosis sessions, just like programming a computer to produce a document, project or program that will produce positive results!
