How Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis Works in 4 Minutes

Hypnosis Expert

The word Hypnotherapy is actually created from two words, Hypnosis and Therapy combined together.

This makes sense why it’s so effective, as it’s a double combination working in harmony.
It is a state of ‘focused concentration and relaxation’ in which you are neither fully awake nor fully asleep. Your mind becomes open and receptive to new ideas, to new suggestions, changing the way you think, the way you feel and ultimately the way you behave.

Your mind is split into two halves; your conscious mind, that’s everything you are aware of right now and your unconscious mind; that’s everything you are unaware of that makes up your decision making process.Your unconscious mind is formed from everything you have learned from the day you are born; your upbringing, your education, your belief system, your values and your experiences. All of this works together very quickly to make up your decision making process to do something; to avoid something, to be in fear of something or to enjoy something.

Iceberg Conscious & Unconscious Visual by Elliott Wald

If you think about the mind as an iceberg in the ocean, the tip of the iceberg above sea level can be compared to your conscious mind, it’s actually very small but if you look at the iceberg beneath the sea, it’s vast in comparison. That’s the vast resources of your unconscious mind. So by changing your unconscious mind, you actually change your conscious reactions and your behaviors.

Research conducted by Dr. Alfred A. Barrios, he carried out a survey of psychotherapy literature in which he found that;


93% of clients recover after 6 sessions of hypnotherapy

72% of clients recover after 22 sessions of behavioral therapy – CBT

38% of clients recover after 600 sessions of psychoanalysis

Hypnotherapy works faster than behavior therapy; 6 sessions compared to 22 or more; Hypnotherapy works faster than psychoanalysis – 6 sessions compared to 600 or more and Hypnotherapy displayed a higher percentage of success with a 93% SUCCESS RATE.

A lot of people ask me, will I be under and not know what’s going during hypnosis?

No, hypnosis is not about you being unconscious; it is about changing the unconscious mind, which is where all your fears, phobias, bad habits and limiting beliefs are stored.


Can anyone be hypnotised?

Yes, anyone can be hypnotised and you have actually experienced forms of hypnosis many times before. Perhaps when driving home on a familiar route and a song comes on, your mind drifts off to an occasion or an event and you find yourself at your destination without a conscious recall. You were in a trance like state.


Is Hypnosis safe?

Yes, hypnosis has practiced for more than a century. Since 1955, it has been recognised by the British Medical Association as an approved treatment. It has now developed into a science and there is a section devoted to medical hypnosis at the Royal Society of Medicine in London

Hypnosis can help deal with a vast array of issues, such as

Weight Loss
Panic Attacks
Eliminating bad habits and addictions
