HOW DOES HYPNOTHERAPY WORK?
At Broadbeach hypnotherapy on the Gold Coast, its all about communicating with the subconscious mind and reprogramming it . Your subconscious mind is the part of the brain that controls the automatic things you do like walking, talking, even breathing.
When you learn how to do something new you have to think about what your doing consciously and concentrate hard, but when you have done the new thing a few times your subconscious mind takes over and it becomes automatic so you just do it without thinking.
Just the same if you want to stop doing something you have to train the subconscious mind not to do it anymore. That’s what Hypnotherapy is about, retraining the subconscious mind to stop smoking as it’s no longer required in our life.
IS HYPNOTHERAPY SAFE?
Hypnotherapy is perfectly safe. You are simply in a state of relaxation similar to meditation and you are aware of what is going on around you at all times, unless you fall asleep then that’s exactly the same as you do every night. If at any point in the session you are not happy you can simply open your eyes stand up and walk out.
CAN I BE FORCED TO DO ANYTHING AGAINST MY WILL?
No despite what is in all the movies Hypnotherapy actually helps you to do things that you want to do, and also to overcome your fears so you can do the things that you want to do. Hypnotherapy can not be used to force you to do anything against your will or morals.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SUITABLE FOR HYPNOTHERAPY?
The first part of the session with Broadbeach Hypnotherapy is a chat about how hypnotherapy works, and answering any questions you may have, if either one of us is not happy about proceeding with the session we simply stop and it costs you nothing, then you can rebook for a later date or you may decide hypnotherapy is not for you.
CAN EVERYONE BE HYPNOTISED?
Anyone who has an average IQ who has no mental issues or taking antidepressants can be hypnotised if they want to be. You can’t be hypnotised against your will.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE TO STOP SMOKING?
One session is enough to quit smoking cigarettes completely.
WHAT TYPE OF PREMISES DO YOU OPERATE FROM?
I operate from my residential unit in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast for a couple of reasons. One some people can be a little nervous going to a place like a medical centre, having memories of medical procedures, injections and dentists etc. but mainly if I rented special purpose premises the cost would have to be passed on to the customer that doesn’t really help either of us.
