Clinical Hypnotherapy is the science of utilisation of the subconscious mind to facilitate change. The moment the critical function of the mind is by-passed, the subconscious mind is accessed. Clinical Hypnotherapy is a trance-like state induced through a focus of attention, and a detachment from every day cares. Hypnotherapy is the science of utilisation of this state to facilitate change.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a peaceful, creative and productive state. It is a natural leaning state that occurs from within. Hypnosis is a natural ability and a powerful tool for change. (Stephen Gilligan, 1997)
Hypnosis is experienced to varying depths. It is experienced differently by individuals. While in a state of trance we can be aware of what is going on around us, and become focused within, as we chose to pay little attention to unnecessary (outer world) distractions.
One of the great strengths of Clinical Hypnotherapy is that it can be learned. Once a client can purposefully induce a state of hypnosis they can use it as a tool to benefit themselves on ongoing bases. Learning self-hypnosis can help to reinforce changes and continue to facilitate new and positive outcomes.
Most people can be hypnotised. Similarly, most people dream, visualise, create and plan.

Time2Lose Weight is a weight loss program to make permanent changes in life, it is necessary to enable the subconscious to agree with the conscious mind, rather than fighting and struggling to work against it. This subconscious/conscious conflict is why diets, which rely solely on willpower, are rarely successful. It has nothing to do with being weak-willed. However, it demonstrates how powerful the human mind is.
