Hypnosis

Hypnosis, practiced at Outstanding Lives, is a psychological technique used in medicine and psychology as a tool to bring about positive changes to both the mind and the body. For thousands of years people have recognised the power of hypnosis to enhance learning, heal emotional scars, improve performance, change habits and speed up the body’s own healing process. It was not until the 1950’s that science began to recognise and understand the immense power of the unconscious mind. Orthodox medicine is now beginning to recognise the major role that unconscious or ‘psychological’ factors play in both illness and in healing.

During hypnosis, direct communication with your unconscious mind can be established. You remain in total control of the situation. The therapist merely guides your mind and body through hypnotic trance, to accept change much more readily. This results in more productive patterns, ideas, attitudes and therefore actions.
