Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a state of mind where concentration is intensely focused and the mind is not distracted by the many things that are usually occupying it.  In Hypnosis body and mind are deeply relaxed. When this happens the subconscious mind can be more readily accessed thus making available inner guidance and your more intuitive faculties.

The subconscious mind is more receptive to therapeutic suggestions. It functions at a deeper level of awareness and unlike the conscious or critical mind the subconscious mind is not limited by the boundaries of logic and time. There is great potential for healing through access to the subconscious mind

If you wish to enter a hypnotic state it is important to keep an open mind.  Suspend your disbelief and any judgment.  Don’t TRY to make it happen or figure out what you should be doing -   just follow the suggestions of your therapist and allow your body and mind to gently move into the experience allowing your subconscious wisdom to surface.. Trust your own experience and don’t allow other peoples beliefs or comments to undermine that experience. Most people experience Hypnosis as a very pleasant deeply relaxed state. 

But there are some very common misconceptions about Hypnosis. Let me put your mind at rest with accurate information.

All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis and the hypnotherapist acts as a guide.  You are always in control – you must choose to enter into the hypnotic state.  Any time you wish you can simply open your eyes and you will be fully alert again.  You cannot be made to do anything outside your moral or ethical code.  In fact Hypnosis is often used to strengthen your will and enhance you ego strength.


Therapeutic Hypnosis is nothing like the stage hypnosis many people are familiar with.  You will not make a fool of yourself or act silly when in a hypnotic state. There is no danger involved with hypnosis and no one ever gets "stuck".
 
Almost anyone can be hypnotized. However even if you fall into the very small percentage of people for whom hypnosis is difficult you can still gain great benefit from the body and mind relaxation and the healing that can come from that.


 

There are four helpful attitudes you can adopt for successful hypnosis. All of these are not absolutely necessary, nor are they required to be present simultaneously.  However the more you can develop them the more success you are likely to achieve.

  1. You must want to be hypnotized and want to succeed at it, believing that you will succeed. Hypnosis is a 100% consent state by you
     
  2. As well as wanting the hypnosis to happen you should direct your will to co-operate and not apply your will negatively as that will make it much more difficult for you to succeed.  So turn off your internal critic and suspend your disbelief.
     
  3. Approach hypnosis with acceptance and without criticism.  In this way you will find it is much easier for suggestions to pass to your subconscious.
     
  4. It is important to be involved in the process and direct your attention and concentration to the process.   Don’t try to make it happen or think about what you should be doing. Instead just relax and follow your therapist’s suggestions and allow it to happen.
