What is Hypnosis and how does it work?

What is Hypnosis and how does it work? Hypnosis is used to bypass conscious thought, move the “Critical Factor” aside, and reach the Subconscious mind. By working directly with the Subconscious mind, which is the seat of our emotional and creative mind, lasting, positive changes can happen.

Just as the cocoon served to protect the “Butterfly” within the Conscious mind and Critical Factor serve to protect us from perceived harm. Cheryll Robertson Hypnosis

By utilizing Hypnotherapy we can free ourselves of the cocoon of false beliefs and thoughts, so that we can bloom into the beautiful butterfly that lives within all of us.
