Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
What is Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique in which clinicians make suggestions to individuals who have undergone a procedure designed to relax them and focus their minds.
hypnosis has been controversial, most clinicians now agree it can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders. Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking.
Although hypnosis has a very controversial history and there is much debate in the modern scientific community as to how it actually works, most agree it can be a powerful and extremely effective therapeutic technique. Let’s not forget that many leaders that have shaped the field of psychology today, i.e. James Braid, Sigmund Freud, Milton Erickson, Ernest Hilgard, Ian Stevenson and J.B. Rhine all explored hypnotic phenomena in order to understand and utilize its potential.
And maybe these names don’t mean much to you or aren’t important, and that’s okay too. What is important is to understand that hypnosis is really just another word of many that points to an altered state of consciousness, just like relaxation and meditation does.
Most people today have begun to accept that relaxation, breathing and meditation techniques all help to combat stress and aid us in managing those stress levels. Hypnosis to all intents and purposes is just another one of these techniques that a hypnotherapist uses to aid their clients/patients to deeply relax and explore the deeper layers of the unconscious that are usually inaccessible in the normal conscious state, in order to affect change.
The first thing to know is that you are always in control and no one can make you do anything. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis. The hypnotherapist is merely facilitating the process of transformation that you desire. Hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy as it aims to reframe negative thoughts, change patterns of behaviour, overcome irrational fears and phobias and help resolve suppressed emotions.
Thinking is the analytical and logical (supposedly most of the time) part of the brain. You are more than you think you are, and you are capable of more than you think. Neuroscience has proven that out of all the information the brain is processing in any moment, only 5% is on the data coming from the senses. Meaning that 95% of the processing is what’s happening internally. And that 5% is only so that we can adjust an internal representation of the world we have. That’s right, it’s in your unconscious.
This means if we don’t affect change at the unconscious level, there won’t be sustainable changes. That’s why I use hypnotherapy along with an Integrative approach to coaching and building self-awareness, because this enables changes to be made at the deepest levels of the unconscious. So you will be dealing with your issues at the root cause and making a real transformation.
Here are a few examples of what hypnotherapy can help with:
• Emotional issues,
• Irritable bowel syndrome,
• Smoking cessation,
• Weight control,
• Fears and phobias,
• Stress management,
• Compulsive behaviour,
• Anxiety and panic attacks,
• Tension headaches,
• Cancer related pain,
• Eating disorders,
• And much more.
