A Journey Into The Subconscious – What Is Hypnotherapy & How Does It Work

I know what it’s like to be trapped in a never-ending loop of anxiety and negative thinking that leaves you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and unable to rest. Especially with the way things have been going in the world, I see it every day in people’s faces as they walk by. It seems everyone is battling to overcome the inner struggles they are facing.

Over time you may have felt your confidence dwindle, replaced with frustration and fatigue, feeling unable to accomplish the goals you’ve set, and constantly worrying about what the future holds.


My passion for hypnotherapy stems from a deep-seated sense of purpose. My purpose and passion is to help people like you uncover the root of your problems within the infinite depths of your subconscious so that together we can develop systems and solutions to not only manage in life but to thrive.

What Is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a technique that utilises hypnosis for the support and treatment to relieve a specific set of specific symptoms or health conditions. Hypnotherapy works by inducing a hypnotic state characterised by an awakened awareness that will allow you to experience a
detached sense of external attention while focusing on your inner experiences.

Hypnotherapy is not to be confused with stage hypnosis, which is performed by trained and experienced entertainers with a penchant for reading people. Hypnotists utilise suggestibility testing on carefully selected audience members who the hypnotist can tell will be more open to suggestions and more willing to put on a performance.


I like to think that the core difference is that stage hypnosis is for entertainment value and hypnotherapy for therapeutic application. Formal research and application into the therapeutic uses for hypnosis started in the late 1700s. Today, there is a growing body of scientific evidence which supports its benefits in the therapeutic treatment of a wide range of conditions relating to mental and physical health and wellbeing.

How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

During a hypnotherapy session, a hypnotherapist, like myself, will guide you into inducing a heightened state of awareness by process of intense concentration, focused attention and relaxation techniques using verbal cues and repetition. Once there, you will enter a trance-like state that is similar to sleep, known as hypnosis. The difference is that you remain fully aware and in control. While you’re in this trance-like state, I will make guided suggestions and impart wisdom designed to strengthen you from within in order to achieve your therapeutic goals.

In this heightened state of awareness, your brain will be more receptive to proposals or advice that you might dismiss or overlook in your normal mental state. It’s in this space where I can lay the groundwork that will reframe your limiting beliefs and support you through your internal challenges. Through our sessions, I will continue to uplift and guide you as you transform your life.

Hypnotherapy And The Brain

A study that monitored the brain activity of 57 people during guided hypnotherapy discovered that during hypnosis, the two parts of the brain that are responsible for processing and managing what is happening in your body become more active. Similarly, the region of your brain responsible for your actions and the region responsible for the awareness of those actions seem to become disconnected.

Every Journey Begins With A Single Step

Change doesn’t happen overnight. Hypnotherapy is a journey you undertake once you are ready to truly overcome the challenges in your life. My goal is to get to know you, understand the difficulties you’ve faced, and draw on three decades of knowledge and experience both locally and abroad. We can work together to strengthen you from within to overcome unwanted phobias, habits, depression, fears, and anxiety.

Every journey starts with a single step. If you’ve reached the end of this article, I think we can safely say you’ve taken your first step. The next step will be to get in contact and book your appointment today. Life is tough, but remember, you don’t have to do this alone.
