Our world can be a wonderful but tough place, filled with many blessings as well as challenges. We all have to make decisions to how best to navigate our lives in this world however, when it is not managed in a practical and constructive manner, it can impact negatively on us and our families emotionally, psychologically and physically.

Do you sometimes feel that you're not good enough, not deserving enough or can't do something? Do you sometimes feel like a 'fraud' even though you're highly qualified in your career with many years of experience? Perhaps you have a belief about yourself that is no longer serving you?

When you hear the word “hypnosis”, what do you think about? Is it the vilan in an animation film trying to gain control of his victim's mind with a pocket watch rocking back and forth in front of their eyes? Is it perhaps the evil character looking deeply into the eyes of a person in a movie in an attempt to take complete control and extract the truth and other information that could be used against them? Do you believe some people have got the power to completely control someone elses psyche for their own hidden agendas? I have no doubt that the word hypnosis may evoke and stir negative reactions and emotions in many people. Some may even believe that it is the “Devil's work” in action.

What is Non Medical Hypnosis?

“Hypnosis is an education communication process that allows a person's conscious and subconscious mind to believe the same message. During Hypnosis, the body and conscious mind are in a relaxed state, while the subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to suggestions. In this state, the person suspends critical judgement and exercises selective thinking.” (Excerpt from the IMDHA Exam for Certified Hypnotherapists)


There are many misconceptions regarding Non Medical Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural state of our natural minds. We experience a hypnotic state throughout our day. A simple explanation of hypnosis is ...”A human condition involving focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion.” Hypnosis is used for therapeutic purposes for pain management, self esteem issues, anxiety, self confidence, stress, bad habit cessation such as smoking tobbaco and is also used to retrieve early trauma to be dealt with and laid to rest.

Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not make you 'go to sleep' or lose touch with reality leaving you vulnerable and out of control. During hypnosis, you are aware of your surroundings and in control of your thoughts.

Non Medical Hypnosis is a technique used to access a person's subconscious mind directly. Your conscious mind hold all your thoughts, feelings, memories and wishes which you are aware of. The subconscious mind is a reservouir of memories, thoughts, past learning, urges and feelings outside of your conscious awareness. It does all the “behind the scenes” work such as solving problems and tells your lungs to breath in and out without you having to literally think “breath in, now breath out”. Have you ever experienced driving somewhere and when you've arrived to your destination, you suddenly realise that you've arrived there without thinking? This is your subconscious mind at work. It is automatic. Your conscious mind is awake during the day while you're awake however, your subconscious mind never sleeps. Your conscious and subconscious mind work hand in hand.

“People who are hypnotised for the first time are frequently disappointed to find that they experience nothing overwhelming. They feel mildly relaxed but they remain in touch with reality and in control of their thoughts. They may discover that the hypnotist's suggestions are quite resistible. Contrary to what most people believe, a person under hypnosis need not fall asleep, or lose contact with his surroundings or relinquish his will. He / She is often able to recall everything that happened during the trance and will act perfectly normal.” (Psychology Today June, 1977 issue)
