How will Hypnosis Help Me?

Your Adelaide hypnotherapist will use hypnosis to gain access to the unconscious mind to find solutions to issues that the conscious mind has been unable to deal with.

For example, if you have a fear or a phobia, anxiety or lack confidence, this is most likely due to an experience that transpired early in your life. This may not have been anything bad, but as a child, you viewed it in a certain way. You might have forgotten all about it, but whatever it was, it has kept you running on this program throughout your life, and so certain situations and events will trigger a reaction in you.

One of the huge advantages of using hypnosis or hypnotherapy is that it will get to the root of the problem and sort it out very quickly indeed.

Another benefit is that while in hypnosis, your unconscious mind is very receptive to positive suggestions. Therefore, Liza Perks can help you to reframe the way you think and feel about things, replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts and feelings which are more compliant for you.

Hypnosis Explained: What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered, heightened hypnotic state of consciousness and sometimes referred to as a trance state.

You slip in and out of trance states throughout the day. For example, when you day-dream, driving and even watching a movie. This is when you are at your most relaxed and comfortable. This is also the time when your best ideas come to mind.

There are two components to the mind, the conscious and the unconscious. Their explanation is very simple:

The Conscious mind

It is the component of your mind that reasons and makes decisions. It acts as a filter to thoughts and suggestions, deciding whether to keep them in the forefront of your mind, or dismiss them altogether. When a thought or suggestion is put ‘on hold,’ it goes straight to the unconscious mind where it is filed away.

The unconscious mind

The unconscious mind is a filing cabinet for your thoughts. Amongst other things, it houses all the information your conscious mind gives it to store, like recollections and things it cannot deal with immediately.

How Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Works

Hypnosis therapy is a collaboration between you and your hypnotherapist. Nobody can make you do anything that you do not agree to do, and no-one can hypnotise you against your will, as your unconscious mind will reject any suggestions that are against your own beliefs.

Hypnotherapy works by bypassing the conscious mind, where our logical processes take place. Suggestions are made to your unconscious mind, the component of your brain responsible for your patterns.

Through hypnotherapy, a state of productive focus, enables changes to be made permanently.

By utilising positive imagery and suggestion, Liza suggests you concentrate and focus on what you want; changing negative to positive outcomes to any given event.

What to Expect from Enhanced Life Coaching’s Hypnosis therapy Program

Before your hypnosis sessions, it is recommended that you have a Free Initial Consultation.

The initial consultation is a free session that lasts approximately 20 minutes and gives your hypnotherapist an opportunity to assess what you want to achieve and your personal desires.

Everything is explained to you during the first session so you will know what to expect. Liza will discuss your challenges and take a complete medical history.

Liza, your hypnotherapist,  will explain how the brain works, how a problem is created and how hypnosis can help you to overcome your obstacles or difficulties, as well as discuss how many sessions you are likely to need.

Liza will then assist you into hypnosis.

A Sneak Peek Into Your Hypnosis Experience

You may not even realise that you are in hypnosis, until you awake from the deep state; then it will be clear, because you will feel so relaxed. In fact, it can be just like taking a nap and many clients have said that it is the best relaxation they have ever experienced.

Usually, during subsequent sessions, your Adelaide hypnotherapist will help you into hypnosis, and you both gently search into your past to find information that will help you to understand why you have a ‘challenge/s’.

As you relax you will be able to put these experiences into perspective as you release the anchors from your past.

The Hypnosis Techniques Used in Our Courses

Enhanced Life Coaching in Adelaide uses a combination of Hypnosis and various Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques designed to help you focus on solutions for the future, rather than analysing difficulties from the past.

Hypnosis therapy can help you achieve your goals by collaborating with Liza Perks; together with your input she will identify where you want to be and how to get there. Liza commences each session with a discussion designed to encourage you to think positively. This component of the course uses techniques that allow you to focus on how you want things to be in your life, rather than focusing on what you don’t want.

Once this is established and you have a clear idea of your preferred future, she will consolidate the steps you need to achieve positive change, and merge the positivity.

The suggestions Liza shares with you during this part of your therapy will enable the unconscious part of your mind to make that preferred future a reality.

The Power is in Your Hands

Hypnosis can only help if you make an effort to do something different, so be ready to make changes. It is worth remembering that hypnosis is not a “do-to process”, it is a “do-with process”, and the aim is for steady, sustainable weight loss or whatever changes you wish to make.

Hypnosis therapy can help with these issues, but it is not a magic wand. You will not be able to lose weight unless you change what you eat or take more exercise, preferably both.

How Many Sessions of Hypnosis Do I need?

With some one-off sessions there may be no need to probe into your past at all. For example, you might just want some hypnosis for relaxation purposes, or because you have an event coming up, such as an exam or a driving test. If this is the case, you will probably only need one or two sessions for some relaxation, and useful suggestions to give your confidence a boost and to help you focus.

Hypnosis Therapy Process

During all hypnosis treatments, you will be aware of everything going on around you, and you will easily be able to talk and interact with your practitioner.

You cannot be made to do or say anything that your unconscious mind does not want you to do, as it will reject any suggestions that do not fit with your values or sense of personal wellbeing.

Furthermore, you are in complete control because you can come out of hypnosis whenever you want – simply open your eyes!

Hypnosis therapy is a safe, brief and effective way to deal with many emotional and anxiety-related issues. It enables you to deal with your mental health challenges and blocks so that you can build on your strengths and take control of your life.

What Can Our Hypnosis Therapy Help With?

Hypnosis therapy may help people stop smoking, lose weight, depression, anxiety, and provide some pain relief, among many other health and lifestyle issues. Hypnosis therapy can change the way drug addicts and smokers think about their habits at a deep and profound level, helping them find the motivation to quit. Hypnosis is used to help reduce cancer and other pain, and the pain and anxiety associated with surgery.

We’ll go through below a few of the many ways our hypnosis therapy sessions can help you.

Hypnosis to Lose Weight

Using Hypnosis for weight loss as an example:

You already know what you need to do to maintain your ideal weight, So what’s stopping you? There could be a whole host of reasons why.

Maybe your life is so busy and hectic that you do not have time to shop for healthier fresh food or prepare it, let alone savour it.

You may have feelings of low self-esteem, which can lead to you developing self-sabotaging behaviour. You might have unhelpful beliefs around food, such as needing to eat everything on your plate.

Hypnosis to lose weight may help you find your motivation by helping you to make positive changes, as you think and feel about yourself and the world.

This may help you to manage your weight. To do this, Liza collaborates and addresses the underlying stresses that obstruct you making excuses around food, exercise etc.

Hypnosis For Sleep & Insomnia

Then you can focus on your problem to reduce it, which is how hypnosis heals the mind and body.

Hypnosis For Confidence and Achieving Goals

People who are in demanding and fast-paced careers need to be fit and healthy in mind and body.  Hypnosis therapies may help young working professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs and others achieve their career-related goals.

Combined with a more general quit smoking program, hypnosis therapy can increase your motivation to resist the urge to smoke.

How Much Does Hypnosis Therapy Cost?

You can find our hypnosis rates and costs on our Pricing & Packages page. Hypnosis therapy is an investment, however, one of the biggest reasons why our hypnosis therapies have been so successful is that it provides fast and actionable solutions to issues our clients deal with now, rather than later.

The amount of sessions you’ll need will depend on your unique goals and reasons for taking hypnosis therapy, however we believe you’ll be able to experience positive change that’ll be apparent to you as soon as you begin our program.
