A person has been struggling to sleep, finding that they can get to sleep only to wake up in the early hours of the morning... each night the wake a 2am. As they go to bed they think to themselves: "I hope I don't wake up a 2am again!"
Can you see how the person is suggesting to themselves the exact time to wake up and sure enough their mind follows the instruction!
We even suggest to ourselves, called auto-suggestion. How many times have you felt the felt anxious about something happening, or expected to feel ill at ease in a certain situation, only to find that it came true? Without realising we have suggested to ourselves. The instruction has taken root in your mind and sure enough it was followed faithfully.
We are suggested to all the time. Probably the most common way is through advertising. We are encouraged to buy a product by being shown how our lives will improve once we have the item. The catching jingle and the tag line all help to imprint the product and the feel good images in our mind. These are triggered when we are in the shop, and we feel a sense of familiarity for the product, which increases the likelihood we will make a purchase.

This type of therapy uses hypnosis so that we can re-programme your mind in such a way as to change a person's unwanted behaviour. Most people could name a few behaviours they would rather be without or just tone down a bit.
Suggestion therapy is the type of therapy that most people associate with Hypnotherapy. Most assume they will be hypnotised and various suggestions will be given to them which are aimed at relieving their symptoms. While this is true, I use suggestion therapy to help combat habit based problems.
Suggestion therapy usually requires 1 or 2 sessions. The use of a support CD recording in between the two sessions is sometimes useful.
