All our memories are stored in our conscious and subconscious mind, 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.

sometimes we pick up problems, perhaps through repetition or trauma, which our inner mind 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 learn and act out behaviors which we later find are unhelpful or even harmful.

Using hypnosis we can cross the bridge from the conscious to the unconscious mind.

A  hypnotherapist helps by communicating with your storehouse of learned patterns and behaviors.

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 change you require.
