How Hypnosis Works


“There isn’t a good side and a bad side of you or of anybody, so there’s no need to be at war with yourself or anyone or anything at all.  All we are is a bunch of dozy people in the process of waking up.  All we really need to do is try gently to be open to continuing that process. It’s no good getting worked up about stuff – it’s better to relax and laugh at our mistakes, then figure out how to learn from them and move on.” ― Jay Woodman

Most of us are sleep-walking through life.  Each time you react with strong emotions, it’s a knee-jerk reaction that was conditioned into you between the ages of 0 to 9, before you developed a critical mind.  At some level, most of us are hostage to our subconscious juvenile minds.  Your subconscious mind is controlling your behaviour ninety five percent of the time.

Young children absorb whatever they experience without question.  If they are treated badly, they feel there is something wrong with them.  When a parent gets angry at a child, justified or not, the child feels they deserved that anger.  Until their critical mind develops at age 10, they accept all criticism as fact.

Happily, hypnosis can help you to shift your behaviour to become less reactionary, more conscious and controlled.  It can help you exchange bad habits for good ones.

These days, I’m working with clients out of the Ontario Hypnosis Centre in Toronto.  To better understand hypnosis and how it can work for you, the following is an overview by the Director, Tariq Sattaur:
