Smoking - the facts
close

Two in three smokers will die from their habit and it slashes an average of 10 years from their lives, scientists say.

A study of more than 200,000 people found that smokers are three times more likely to die earlier than those who have never used tobacco. Smoking just ten cigarettes a day doubles the risk of dying earlier, while 20 a day raises the risk to five fold.

The research was conducted in Australia and published in the journal BMC Medicine. Professor Emily Banks, of the Australian National University, said:

" We knew smoking was bad, but we now have direct evidence that confirms the disturbing findings that have been emerging."

About the Therapy

SUGGESTION THERAPY

Which is used for simpler problems such as smoking, nail biting, pre-test nerves, some slimmers, relaxation, which require only one or two sessions with perhaps a booster session later on.

ANALYTICAL THERAPY

Which is used to discover causes of psychological problems ( and both therapies are often mixed). Hypno-Analysis can be summarised as the doctrine of "Cause and Effect", Every effect (the symptom) must have a cause. Hypno-Analysis removes the cause and consequently relieves the symptoms.

The Client

A definition of hypnosis is :A state of relaxation and concentration at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by hypnosis.

About the Client
close

You need to have arrived at a sense of personal commitment that you wish to be free of the problem with which you consult. Often people experiencing hypnosis for the first time say "It didn't work for me or I didn't go under", so you need to accept that hypnosis may not be as perhaps you expect it to be.

When embarking into analysis you will need to be totally frank and unlike the clients attending for symptom removal suggestion therapy, you must not expect immediate results during the therapy.

You can dispose with your problem. It will take time and it will take effort, co-operation and commitment on your part. You can be assured that when you visit the centre you will only see the therapist and your need for confidentiality will be respected totally.

Hypnosis Explained

The fears, myths and mystery surrounding the use of hypnosis are totally undeserved.

The Truth About Hypnosis
close

There is absolutely no question of being controlled or manipulated or even being induced into a deep trance state. A person in hypnosis is not "asleep" - they are often more aware of what is taking place than usual and their senses are also functioning at a higher level than usual, heightened rather than diminished.

Nobody could possibly be made to do something that they didn't want to do and anybody

( except true mental defectives, very young children and those who arrive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. ) can enter the hypnotic state.

People who say or think " Nobody could get me under" or "I wouldn't want anybody controlling my mind" or even "I might be blurting my secrets out" are really demonstrating that they have a total misconception of what hypnosis really is. The state of hypnosis is most pleasant and particularly relaxing. What's more, a person can converse quite easily whilst within that relaxed state. It's inconceivable that any harm can befall them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q : What is Hypnosis ?

A : Hypnosis is a state of relaxation at one with a state of heightened awareness induced by suggestion. It is a non-addictive power for good and a natural manifestation of the mind at work. Hypnosis has been used for thousands of years. There is a huge amount of evidence to support the belief that hypnosis was used by the Greeks and Romans as far back as the 4th century B.C. Hypnosis loosely translated from the Greek word " Hypnos " which means to sleep. That's a bit of a misnomer, in that the person in hypnosis is not asleep.They are simply very relaxed, aware of what's happening and able to remember whatever they wish to remember as they would in normal conversation. A client could fall asleep if they came in feeling very tired as a result of working nights or partying to the early hours but that is sleep and nothing to do with hypnosis.
