Access your inner strength to bring about positive change
What is a habit?
A habit is behaviour that through repetition becomes automatic or habitual. We all have them, some are good and some are bad, only you can decide if it is a habit that you no longer wish to have. This may be because it is affecting your health, such as smoking, drinking and overeating, or do you want to feel better about yourself, stop biting your nails, or stop procrastinating and putting things off?
There are three parts to a habit - the cue, the behaviour and the reward. Habits are a way for your brain to make you more efficient, how long would it take you to brush your teeth if you had to think 'move hand towards brush, open fingers, close fingers around brush, move other hand towards toothpaste, open fingers, close around toothpaste .......... etc', so your brain collects all the information into one chunk and it becomes automatic, you don't even need to think about it. One of the first things you need to do is to find a replacement behaviour that gives you the reward but without the negative consequences.
How can hypnotherapy help?
In some cases you may not be aware of the root cause or reward of your behaviour, using hypnosis to access your subconscious can help you to figure this out and also help you to decide on how you can get the rewards you want but in a more positive way. When you are in a relaxed state you can access your subconscious and install new information to help you change your behaviour, overcome cravings and to take back control and make the positive changes you want to make.

Hypnotherapy is a client centred talking therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
When you are in a state of relaxation, the conscious mind becomes less active, this happens naturally when you are completely absorbed in a book or a movie. In this state, you are more able to turn your attention inward to find your own internal resources that can help you to make the changes you want, to overcome challenges, achieve goals and improve your well-being..
You are still aware of what you say and do during hypnosis and remain in complete control. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, I merely help to guide you and provide positive suggestions for beneficial change
