What is Hypnosis? Hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. Contrary to popular belief, people under hypnosis are in total control of themselves and would never do anything they would normally find highly objectionable.
The most frequent uses of hypnosis include: breaking bad habits, overcoming insomnia, recalling forgotten experiences, and as an anesthetic for managing pain.
Do you want to give up smoking? A great number of people find hypnotherapy for smoking an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviors and thinking patterns associated with smoking; like smoking to relieve stress.
It is these negative thoughts and behaviors that often prevents people from successfully giving up. Quitting does not deal with the underlying issues. So, when a person makes the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change how they view cigarettes.

Do you suffer with chronic pain? Therapies that address the mind-body link are often recommended for those dealing with long-term pain. Stress and anxiety are common side effects of pain and can even make the sensation feel worse.
The way the mind responds to pain also links to the perception of physical sensations. Helping to reduce stress and change the thought patterns related to pain can therefore make a huge difference to pain perception. Rather than convincing you that your pain doesn’t exist, hypnosis for pain aims to manage any fear and anxiety you may have relating to your pain.
Have you ever thought about having a gastric band before? Every surgery comes with a certain degree of risk, and gastric band surgery is no exception. Gastric band hypnosis can be used to help people lose weight, without this risk. Many hypnotherapists use a two-pronged approach. First they look to identify the root cause of your emotional eating. Using hypnosis, Zarina can encourage you to remember long-forgotten experiences surrounding food that may subconsciously be affecting you now. Addressing and recognizing any unhealthy thought patterns surrounding food can be helpful before carrying out gastric band hypnotherapy. Next Zarina will carry out the virtual gastric band treatment. The premise behind the procedure is to convince you at a subconscious level that you have had an operation to insert a gastric band. The aim is that your body responds to this suggestion by making you feel fuller quicker, as if you had the real surgery.
Do you suffer with anxiety? Hypnotherapy is becoming a more recognized method for reducing feelings of anxiety. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help boost confidence and self-belief, while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry. It can help you develop the ability to access the calm state of mind needed to overcome the often-overwhelming emotions you are living with. Hypnotherapy can begin to teach you how to regain a sense of control and normality. It can help you understand what triggers your anxiety and how to cope when you start to feel anxious.
Do you want to overcome certain fears & phobias? Fears & phobias often begin early in an individual’s life and may occur for a number of reasons. Traumatic experiences and brain chemicals are also believed to influence the development of phobias. Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root cause of the phobia and enable individuals to react to the particular object or situation they once feared in a calmer manner when encountering it in the future. Phobias are displaced fears and because they are not rational, they can be dealt with.
