Hypnosis is a form of self-control, allowing you to relax, a state that deepens the more you do it. Even a light form of hypnotic trance is enough to create an effective therapeutic intervention. Hypnosis is not about being gullible, being asleep or under mind control. When in Hypnosis, you are always in control.
Many of us are wary of hypnosis because we are not educated on the topic. Hypnosis is a natural state and many people reach this state of consciousness every day without even realising it. When we drive a car, we are in a light state of hypnosis. We are in control and have an increased ability to concentrate, and are operating on autopilot without really realising it. A great deal of research has been conducted on the hypnotic state and various states of consciousness.
