ON TRACK HYPNOTHERAPY & COACHING
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a trance state of awareness during which the mind is focused, and the subconscious is open to new ideas. During a trance, the hypnotherapist gives metaphors and positive suggestions to the subconscious mind that alter behaviour on a conscious level. These suggestions, reframe your brain, helping you break bad habits and overcome emotional challenges.
Hypnosis improves your life
Our brains are not static. They have an incredible potential to change through experience and repair following injury. The ability of brain cells to reorganise, forming of new pathways and connections is called neuroplasticity. Thus, when we learn to change the way we think and behave, we are actually affecting the biology of our brain.
Brain cells only work when we use them. So when we actively learn how to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, brain cells responsible for these behaviours undergo what is called ‘pruning’. In addition to pruning, new brain cells grow, making new connections that control helpful thoughts and behaviours necessary for change.
Bad habits are tough nuts to crack. If you smoke, eat a particular food or drink alcohol for comfort, a habit is formed. Thanks to neuroplasticity, the effects of habits become etched in your brain, as the cells cement connections that control cravings and reinforce these bad habits. Also, thanks to neuroplasticity, hypnotic suggestion can reframe your brain to overcome bad habits.
Hypnosis can also help us regain control over pain perception, anxiety, stress, phobias, depression and numerous other mental health disorders. During hypnosis, we become open to suggestions for better solutions to our challenges, which in turn reframes the brain.
