Using hypnosis, we can cross the bridge from the conscious to the unconscious mind. All our memories are there, where they continue to have an important effect on the way we live our daily lives. Happily, most of the information we have stored is helpful and continues to make our lives safer and less problematic. Alas, sometimes we pick up problems, perhaps through repetition or trauma, which our inner mind then retains. This is because one of the major functions of the unconscious mind is to help us to learn and remember important things.

Difficulties begin when we leam and act out behaviours, which we later find are
unhelpful or even harmful. A hypnotherapist helps by communicating with your
storehouse of learned patterns and behaviours. New instructions can be placed there which have a strong effect when we are wakeful again. The great thing about hypnosis is that it uses the natural abilities of your own mind to safely bring about the changes you require.
