What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful therapeutic process that has benefits that enable you to make positive changes. There are may psychological, physical and emotional disorders that hypnosis can be applied to, these include weigh loss, stress and anxiety. It has been shown to help people overcome addictions such as smoking or alcoholism and It can help with stammering or blushing. Phobias lend themselves particularly well to hypnotherapy and panic attacks or obsessive compulsive behaviour, and stress-related problems like insomnia, may benefit. It is such a shame that people come for hypnotherapy as their last resort, hypnotherapy is a wonderful treatment that can produce great results.
How does it work?
Hypnotherapy is the process of inducing a deeply relaxing state in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is subdued, and the subconscious mind becomes alert and receptive. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more automatic force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for your behaviour and physical state to alter. For example if you want to overcome your fear of spiders you may have done several things to help you overcome this fear, but this fear will stay put as long as long as your subconscious mind holds onto this fear. Hypnotherapy will 'reprogram' your subconscious mind so that these deep seated fears are eliminated or changed.
What hypnotherapy isn’t!
During all times during the hypnotherapy process you are in control. You are not alseep, you will be very much awake and alert. You will not be asked to do anything you would not ordinarily do. You will remain fully aware of your surroundings and situation, and are not vulnerable to every given instruction of the therapist. The important thing is that you want to change some behavioural habit or addiction and that you are highly motivated to do so. Any suggestion accepted by the subconscious mind must result in action.
There is a tendency to think of hypnosis as something that is used as a form of entertainment, and this was the case a few years back. A highly trained hypnotherapist is absolutely not concerned with hypnosis for the purpose of entertainment. It is a therapeutic process that enables you make positive changes. It is not a magical form of mind control, at no point can you be made to do something you don't want to do. Anybody can be hypnotised, some are able to reach a deeper state of hypnosis than others, when we daydream, doze or meditate we actually enter the altered state we call hypnosis.
