What Is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is often described as sleep though it is not sleep or just a relaxed and focused experienced that when combined with the correct goals and motivation can be extremely beneficial. Hypnosis helps people manage their lives, achieve their goals and eliminate unwanted habits, anxiety, fears or phobias. Clinical Hypnosis which s more closely aligned to the treatment of medically diagnosed conditions also helps relieve pain and can be used in preparation before and in recovery from general and dental surgery. It is also used in natural childbirth to help mothers give birth with minimal intervention.
Throughout history and in many varied cultures, hypnosis has been used to relax, heal and enhance creativity. Hypnosis uses our own natural occurring states, abilities and resources to achieve results whatever the goals may be. Increased enthusiasm, motivation and confidence or perhaps to attract and maintain the relationships you wish for.
Hypnosis is a very focused state achieved when your mind and body are completely relaxed with the aim and intent on successfully achieving a desired outcome. And as all hypnosis is self hypnosis because you process information in your own way, you will remain in control of yourself at all times. You cannot be made to do anything you don’t want to do.
There are many examples of hypnotic states in everyday life, daydreaming is just one, another is that feeling of being completely immersed in a good novel or captivated by a charismatic speaker. Another hypnotic state occurs at that relaxed moment in time just before you fall asleep and as you wake up.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis and psychotherapy techniques to resolve issues. When a person is hypnotised the therapist gives appropriate and relevant suggestions or tells stories using metaphors that directly communicate with the sub-conscious mind. This process allows you to achieve your specific goals and bring about the changes you desire. You may find depending upon the training of your hypnotist that they use a wide variety of techniques while others just relax you and make suggestions which you find are extremely helpful in changing your unwanted behaviour.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
There are many theories about how hypnosis works. It is widely recognised that the suggestions made in hypnotherapy help to establish new ways of thinking and behaving. Hypnotherapy creates new patterns that reduce and replace negative thoughts, habits and unhelpful chatter. As many issues arise because of internal conflicts, when the specific fear or concern is dealt with and any conflicts resolved you are free to move on.
So cutting along story short the old dog can learn new tricks and the leopard can also change it’s spots both of which are true.
What Will It Feel Like?
From many years of experiencing hypnotic trance and watching others go through various levels of experience it is best to say that it is an experience unique to the individual. It is a common misconception that you will need recall everything that is said for the hypnosis to be effective, that simply isn’t the case. Also many think that they disappear off somewhere though it is fair to say that in very deep trance work there is a moment of complete freedom from thought which is often followed by deep insight and awareness, this is not the norm for a hypnotherapy session where most experience total body and mind relaxation – particularly if your therapist is working with ego parts or in a regression, past life or otherwise. Many have the experience of feeling very heavy though some very light and some have sensations best described as tingly or warm.
