How does hypnosis work?

When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behaviour in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases, these reactions are unhealthy. In some forms of hypnotherapy, a trained therapist guides you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behaviour, and replace unhealthy behaviour s with new, healthier ones.


During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally and may be highly responsive to suggestion. If you are trying to quit smoking, for example, a Hypnotherapist's suggestion may help convince you that you will not like the taste of cigarettes in the future. Some people respond better to hypnotic suggestion than others.


There are several stages of hypnosis:


    • Reframing the problem
    • Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a Hypnotherapist)
    • Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
    • Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist's suggestions)
    • Returning to usual awareness
    • Reflecting on the experience
