Clinical Hypnotherapy and the Subconscious Mind Therapy
The Philosophy of Clinical Hypnotherapy is to work directly with the subconscious mind.
There is a wealth of data indicating that your mind and body are involved in constant two-way communication. Like traffic on a highway, messages are sent from the cells of your body to the brain and from the brain to the body. Blocked emotions or unexpressed feelings can create a traffic jam, resulting in emotional turmoil that can have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing.
Western Medicine Model of Healing
Historically the Western Medicine model of healing was based on the work of Descartes, a 17th century philosopher, who declared the body, mind and soul to be separate entities; entirely unrelated to each other.
Modern science is proving this to be incorrect; we know that our thoughts, emotions, mind and body are connected and play a vital role in health and wellbeing.
Thankfully, the need to also communicate with the subconscious mind in order to heal has been acknowledged through a vast amount of research by many scientists. Today I will focus on two of them; Dr Candace Pert and Dr Bruce Lipton.
Valuable amount of research was released by Dr. Candace Pert, a prominent US scientist. She was the first scientist to discover “molecules of emotion” located within the body. In fact, in her book Molecules of Emotion she suggests that your whole body is your subconscious.
Her pioneering research shows how the chemicals inside your body create a dynamic information network, linking mind and body, establishing the bio-molecular basis for your emotions.
All unresolved thoughts and emotions, the negativity we hold onto, manifest in the body. As a result Dr Pert says: “our body becomes the battlefield for the war games of the mind and the end result may be emotional as well as physical turmoil and ill health.”
As a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist my focus is on communication with the subconscious mind.
Hypnosis can help change subconscious negative beliefs
In more recent times Dr. Bruce Lipton, a prominent EpiGenetic scientist, has been very successful in demystifying the connection between the conscious and subconscious mind. In the below video he talks about how automatic habits and beliefs drive your everyday behaviour and how some of those beliefs are limiting your potential.
He also talks about how hypnosis can help change negative beliefs; he explains exactly how we can regain conscious control to live a full and meaningful life.
In conclusion, your emotions, your mind and body are interconnected and play a vital role in your health and wellbeing. This is why it is so important to understand the role of Hypnotherapy to meaningfully communicate with the subconscious mind to re-establish emotional health and wellbeing.
