"We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think."
HOW THE THERAPY WORKS
The unconscious mind is much more powerful than the conscious mind. It is estimated that 90% of our daily behaviour is generated unconsciously. All of our beliefs, habits, attitudes and behaviours are stored in our unconscious, which is why it does most of our thinking. We could compare the unconscious mind to a computer’s file system. It is like our hard drive, where we store every experience, feeling and belief we’ve ever had.
During hypnosis, a client can do a search on his/ her unconscious and pull up repressed memories and buried thoughts and feelings at the root of the problem. This can be very helpful as we sometimes develop habits that stop us achieving our goals. When a client relaxes in a trance and focuses attention on the issue, he/ she can instantly access the unconscious mind. Buried emotions and false conclusions can be found and by changing the outlook on these, a positive life change is made.
