Self Hypnosis

If you are looking for an introduction to hypnosis and how to use it to enhance your life, then the self-hypnosis course is probably the best thing for you.  It is not too much of a commitment and will aim to encourage you to experience real relaxation and be able to instantly achieve that state at any desired time. You will learn how to use positive suggestion techniques for your own benefit and thus enhance your life and give yourself more options.  These courses run one evening a week for 6 weeks.

Practitioner Qualification

If you are already familiar with hypnosis and respect its potential then the practitioner course could be what you are looking for.  This is a comprehensive course that runs over a  weekend for 12 months.  You will learn hypnotherapeutic techniques to use professionally.  The most important aspect of the course is that over the period of time you are coming you will begin to develop a greater insight and understanding of yourself and others.  You will begin to see why some people 'push your buttons' yet don't seem to impact on your friends.  You will, through insight, develop a confident communication style where once you may have felt intimadated or struggled.  After all to help others you first need to experience for yourself, what it is that they are hoping to achieve.  On successful completion of this course you will not only be qualified as a professional hypnotherapist, you will also feel like a professional hypnotherapist.

What is self-hypnosis?

You do it yourself naturally twice a day at least - just before you go to sleep and just after you have woken up.  At its deepest it is that inbetween state, where you not quite in reality but you not out of it either.  Its similar to day dreaming.

In that state you conscious rationalising mind is less intrusive and controlling than normal and you are more able to make contact with and influence your sub conscious.

The Self-Hypnosis course teaches you to relax into these same natural states deliberately, when you choose to and with awareness. Its almost like creating your own dreams for positve effect.

Expect this course to be packed with activities to help you develop a deep understanding of self-hypnosis so that with practice it can become almost second nature to you.

The course will be experiential and so partially guided by the group needs and it is planned that most of the following will be covered:

 Understanding exactly what therapeutic relaxation is.

  • Relaxation at will.
  • methods of self-hypnosis
  • Power napping for increased concentration and revitalisation.
  • Constructing a positive affirmation
  • Working with positive intent
  • Analysing the problem and chunking it down to a manageable size
  • Working with dreams
  • Creating dreams
  • Journeying

During the sessions you will be experiencing hypnosis and relaxation many times and will be lying on the ground.  We have mats, blankets and cushions but you are welcome to bring something of your own if you feel it would be more comfortable.

The cost will be £49 for 5 weeks and the course will run from 27th Feb on Wednesday evenings.  This will be a small group with between 6 - 12 participants.

Empower yourself and take control of your life NOW!

Course is taking place at the
Mind & Body Natural Health Centre
52 Bolton Street, Bury BL9 0LL

Every Wednesday evening for 5 weeks from 6.15 - 7.30pm

*What do you do to really relax?  Are you sure you are actually relaxing or are you simply distracting yourself?

It may seem like a silly question.

The answer many people give me when I ask them "What do you do to relax?" is:

Watch TV
Read a book,
Do crossword puzzles
Exercise at the gym
etc etc etc.

Whilst there is nothing wrong with any of these activities they are not actually relaxing but more distracting.  They certainly take your mind off your everyday worries and responsibilities but they don't  help you to  relax as such.

Relaxation is a skill that many people have never developed.  When you do learn this skill it opens up a whole new world of opportunities for you including developing a more intuitive response to your problems.

Some people feel guilty if they just relax and feel that they always need to be busy doing something. 

Some people have too many thoughts going on in their mind and are busy distracting themselves from having to think too much.  When they relax it's a great opportunity for the thoughts and niggles to surface (some people find that this happens when they are trying to sleep).

If this is you, then a course of self-hypnosis would help you develop this invaluable skill.
