…This is a phrase I hear a lot. I’ll say to those people that they are right. I can’t hypnotise anybody. But, I do suggest that they can drift into a comfortable sleep, (which is just simply a state of hypnosis) themselves, just by listening to the sound of my voice.
That is really what a hypnotherapist does, help somebody enter into a trance-like sleep state. We cannot force anybody into a trance without their consent!
If you are in any way sceptical, I suggest you pop in to our shop and download any hypnosis audio and see for yourself how easy it is to allow your mind to drift off into a lovely positive sleepy trance quite effortlessly, just by listening to the sound of my voice.
Let me explain what a trance is – You know that feeling when you are just about to fall asleep, but not quite there yet? That feeling where you are deeply relaxed and comfortable. That floaty feeling you drift into just as you are falling into a deep sleep?
The trance-like state of sleep is known as REM (Rapid Eye Movement). It is in that state of your mind that your brain is at its highly suggest-able state, where the conscious mind begins to drift off to sleep and the subconscious mind begins to wake up and remain alert.
When you are drifting off to sleep and the the brain enters into REM, it is accessing a powerful state of mind, also known as trance. The trance state is what I get my clients into on the hypnotherapy couch. I am trained to speak to the client whilst maintaining their trance-like sleep state.
Hypnotherapy works because I am trained to talk to your subconscious mind, and while you are in REM sleep, your subconscious mind is actively listening.
This is the reason why I insist that every single one of my clients plays one of my hypnotherapy audios every night as they fall asleep, because my soothing voice repeats the positive suggestions and these get recorded into your subconscious mind, where they become permanently embedded.

Imagine you wanted help with your sleep, and you come to see me. I would ask you questions about what you wanted to achieve in the session. I am trained to ask you questions in such a way so answer them in a solution focused way.
So, in other words, I find out very quickly what you do want rather than what you don’t want.
A hypnotic trance is simply a state we fall into when we go to sleep at night.
When I begin working with a client and ask them what they want from the sessions, they usually start by telling me what they don’t want to feel. They may say something like “I want to stop being an insomniac.”
I understand that they think they have answered the question. They have answered it in a negative way. Then, I very quickly must ask them to say the answer in a positive way and ask them how do they want to feel?
So, they must do something called a trans-derivational search in their brain to locate the feeling that they want to feel. So, then they answer differently and say they want to be able to sleep well, stay asleep all night without waking up and sleep more deeply and soundly.
When you identify the feeling you want to feel, it is easy for me as your hypnotherapist to keep reminding you of that feeling. The trance sessions are designed to keep that positive feeling alive in your memory. The sleep audio that you play at night helps you drift into the REM sleep state. It is specifically designed to remind your brain of the positive suggestions that you want to feel.
This keeps your brain on track, focused on feeling what you have decided to focus on.
There are many hypnotherapy audios available in the Hello Relax shop. All my audios help you with a wide range of issues. The most important thing to remember is that the REM sleep state is powerful.
Why not play positive hypnotic suggestions to yourself as you drift off into that sleep state every night? – It’s SNT (Silly Not To!)
Simply allow my voice to remind you of your wonderful goals and outcomes. Take me to sleep with you every night and it could really change your life!
Pop into the shop and download an audio and I know it will change your life if you listen to it EVERY night.
