agnes guibout Hypnotherapy is a process in which a trained therapist uses techniques in guided imagery and positive suggestions, accompanied by gentle, soothing background music, to help the person quiet the mind's chatter and enter into a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In this state, one experiences calmness and clarity and accesses innate knowingness, finds answers, gains understanding and initiates genuine change, on a fundamental level and free of the conscious mind's chatter and interference. Hypnosis works by slipping beneath the conscious mind - that part of ourselves that we identify as "I" while awake and going about our daily lives - to the unconscious, where one's memories of experiences, beliefs and earliest childhood self-concepts are stored. In the hypnotic state, they are remembered, understood and integrated, bringing resolution, healing and freedom from their former negative effects, such as patterns of behavior or thinking that are self-destructive, self-defeating or painful.
