Hypnotherapy Course - Central YMCA Club

Hypnotherapy Course

Unlock the power of your subconscious mind to help you form positive habits, lessen feelings of anxiety, and more.

Learn the power of self-hypnosis through this 6-week course to help you relax and bring about positive change in your life. The focused attention and heightened concentration brought about by hypnosis helps you use your mind in more effective ways. Hypnosis moves aside the critical, conscious mind and makes room for the powerful subconscious mind (where your emotions and experiences are stored) to be more active and receptive to suggestions. 

There are many incredible benefits of hypnosis including better sleep, improved self-confidence, a decrease in anxiety, and more creativity. It can also be used to help you quit smoking, overcome phobias, and improve a negative relationship with food. 

Frequently asked questions

What specific techniques are used to reach a relaxed state?
Adeline uses four relaxation techniques that can be customised to each participant – mainly centred around the breath. She uses both direct and indirect suggestion to deepen the feelings of relaxation. Imagination also plays an important role as the subconscious mind thinks in pictures.
Are there any risks involved with hypnosis?
Hypnosis is completely safe, and you cannot be made to do anything against your will. This is a common misconception as hypnosis is often dramatised through movies and TV for entertainment purposes. All hypnosis used in this course is self-hypnosis and 100% voluntary at all times.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Everyone experiences hypnosis differently, but it’s universally a lovely feeling that many of Adeline’s clients don’t want to come out of. It can feel like day dreaming, getting lost in a great book or film, or the feeling when you are close to sleep but still conscious.

– Self-hypnosis and how to put yourself into a relaxed state at will
