Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
Understanding the art of hypnosis & hypnotherapy
How & why we can incorporate
this practise into your
Our experience of reality is based on what we perceive reality to be. Our minds are continually hypnotising us into believing what we’ve unconsciously chosen to accept as true, and this “truth” then becomes stronger over the years.
Here’s an example – over time, you’ve learned to believe that you are a particular type of person or that you have a specific set of skills and limitations. However, if you want to grow, you must allow yourself to believe that you can improve and remove these restrictions or addictions that are holding you back from fulfilling your potential.
Hypnotherapy facilitates the process of transformation that an individual may desire. It can help you reframe your thoughts, change destructive patterns, overcome irrational fears and phobias as well as aid you in resolving and integrating suppressed emotions.
Hypnosis can be used for a variety of reasons:

Frequently Asked Questions about Hypotherapy
Hypnosis or hypnotherapy is a alternative treatment therapy that uses the mind-body connection to encourage a state of mind that can be classified as focused attention with an increased suggestibility that allows for the healing of limiting patterns of thought, release of blocked emotions and unconscious stress and tension.
Your reality is based on your perceptions. Your mind is actually continually hypnotising you into believing what you’ve unconsciously chosen to accept as true, and this “truth” then becomes stronger and stronger over the years, and becomes your view of the world.
So, for example, over time you’ve learned to believe that you are a particular type of person or that you have a specific set of skills and limitations. But you want to grow and improve and remove these restrictions or addictions that are holding you back from fulfilling your potential.
If you’re open to the natural healing that lies deep within you, beyond your perceptions and beliefs, then hypnosis / hypnotherapy can help you discover unlimited possibilities and opportunities.
Yes, if you’re open to letting go and trusting someone else, such as your Integrative Coach, to guide you on a journey of discovering your true self, then you can be hypnotised and gain the benefits.
It’s important to understand that while you might be more open to suggestions during hypnotherapy, you won’t lose control over your conscious mind, you’ll remain aware throughout the whole process. The person leading your journey can’t make you do something that you are inherently against or conflicts with your core values.
Hypnotherapy facilitates the process of transformation that an individual might desire. It aims to reframe your thoughts, change destructive patterns, overcome irrational fears and phobias as well as aid in resolving and integrating suppressed emotions.
Hypnosis only works if you want to be hypnotised. Like falling asleep, you first be ready and want to go to sleep. So, only you can give yourself permission to let go and relax enough to be hypnotised.
When you’re being hypnotised, you’re allowing yourself to enter an altered state of consciousness called the hypnagogic state – this is the state between being awake and being asleep. This relaxed state is the entry point into the magic of realising your full potential.
In the hypnagogic state, your Integrative Coach can make suggestions that you have your coach designed together to focus your mind and help you go even deeper into relaxation. Hypnosis then aids in the exploration of the deeper layers of your unconscious that are usually inaccessible during ordinary consciousness.
It is at this place in your mind where you begin to uncover buried emotions and false perceptions, providing you with the opportunity to face these half-truths and whole lies so you can start to discover who you are really meant to be.
Hypnotherapy feels like a mixture of therapy and relaxation. You remain awake, but you’ve chosen to let someone else be the leader, instead of your ego taking charge.
Before you can be hypnotised you first need to learn how to relax. If you’re unfamiliar with hypnotherapy, you might feel a bit sleepy at the beginning, but the more you practise it, the deeper into the discovery process you can go.
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is the process of learning to relax and become open again. When you’re open to trusting someone else to give you a suggestion – that you are good enough, that you don’t need that cigarette or doughnut to experience that feeling of relaxation, peace and fullness that you’re after, then you begin to reconnect to that part of yourself that already knows what you need, whats healthy for you and how to heal.
So in short the answer is Yes, hypnosis can help you change your life, but only if you’re open to facing the pain that might be underlying the unwanted symptoms you’re experiencing.
In our Cape Town offices and online, we use hypnosis in an integrative way, as one of the many tools to help you resolve the root causes of your troubled and anxious mind, providing you with the support needed to break free from what’s keeping you stuck.
Every situation is different, it depends on your unique requirements and circumstances. If we think that hypnotherapy can help relieve the pain you’re feeling, we might suggest it as one of our therapies.
