Hypnotherapy is increasingly being used to treat a variety of disorders from physical conditions to problems of a psychological or emotional nature, for example:
Stopping smoking (usually one session).
Gender and Identity.
This is a list of just a few of the many conditions and situations that can successfully be treated or improved during hypnosis in a confidential caring and non-judgemental environment, however hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical care or attention.
The word Hypnosis is derived from the Greek word Hypnos which means sleep. Despite this derivation a person under hypnosis is not actually asleep. Hypnosis is a state of consciousness during which the mind remains focussed and alert, concentrating on mental, sensory and physiological experiences. The hypnotic state is different to either wakefulness or sleep and is one in which awareness of the outside world becomes reduced and the mind comes into close contact with the inner self. Hypnosis is a very pleasant state to be in, muscles relax, there is a reduction in heart and respiration rates and one becomes very calm. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring phenomena, it is non addictive and has no unpleasant side effects. When a Therapist induces a trance state the individual is empowered to make changes in his/her life which he/she feels would be beneficial. These benefits can be physical, behavioural or emotional.
Yes anyone who is willing can be hypnotised. The depth of trance will vary from person to person but the therapy can be just as effective in light or heavy trance. The only people who cannot be hypnotised are those who do not want to be hypnotised.
Hypnosis is sometimes erroneously looked on as a form of mind control. People in old films are often portrayed as being forced to act against their will or better judgement and volunteers in hypnosis shows exhibit strange behaviours. In fact it is impossible to override the will, our unconscious mind looks after us all the time. If a hypnotist were to try to coerce someone to do something which ran counter to their own value system the individual would either ignore the suggestion or come out of trance. Volunteers in hypnosis shows have made an inner commitment for the sake of entertainment and are not forced to do anything.
This is useful for dealing with certain addictive behaviours such as smoking or nail biting and also for one off situations such as exam nerves
This therapy requires clients to allow themselves to go into a hypnotic trance during which the therapist makes suggestions aimed at bringing about the desired result.
One or two sessions are usually required and sometimes a booster session can be useful.
Analytical therapy is used to discover root causes of psychological problems. Hypno-Analysis reveals then removes these causes thereby relieving any resulting symptoms. The use of conscious hypnosis dramatically speeds up analysis and the results of 6 to 10 sessions are comparable to conventional "1000 hour" analysis.
The object of Analytical therapy is to bring the individual to a moment of liberating enlightenment.
