What is Hypnotherapy?

'Hypnosis' and 'Hypnotherapy' are not the same thing. You need to know the difference between hypnosis, hypnotherapy and trance.

Trance is a natural state of mind. It happens to you all the time. Going into trance is so normal, happens so often, that you are unaware of it when it.

For example, suppose you are standing in a queue, and get bored. You start thinking about dinner. And then you get nudged in the back. You were in trance. You were there, but your mind was off in a different place. That is all there is to trance.

People think that trance is something weird or special or hard to achieve. In fact trance happens all the time. That is why hypnosis is easy. You are hitching a ride on a natural, normal process.

hypnosis

Have you ever driven home and couldn't remember anything about the journey? Or you have been so absorbed in a game or a film that you lost track of time? Or you realize you have no idea what someone just said to you?

When that happens, you have actually been in a trance. Going into a  trance like that is normal and natural and happens to all of us. There is nothing special about creating trance. What is special is how using the right words can affect your mind while you are in trance.

So, what is hypnosis? There are a hundred different definitions, every hypnotherapist has their own ideas. We know how to do it, how to use it to fix things, but it still remains mysterious. But that doesn't really matter. We don't know exactly how gravity works either, but it doesn't stop us from using it.

Hypnosis is a process. It is the process for creating trance.  There are many ways of hypnotizing. If I tell you a story, and you start visualizing what I am describing, then you are in trance. Your mind went into the imaginary world I was describing.

It happens all the time.  You get hypnotized by advertising. When they show you carefree people on a remote beach they are inviting you think about being there. And then, when are in trance, they bring out the bottle they want you to buy. Trance is what happens when your mind is distracted.

Hypnosis moves you into a trance state.  But, you can't actually do anything with 'hypnosis'. The fact you are in trance doesn't mean much. It is the words that the hypnotist uses while you are in trance that matters.

Hypnotherapy is the art of putting ideas into your mind while you are in trance. That is where the magic happens. Hypnotherapy is how people to overcome their problems.

There are also dozens of different types of hypnotherapy. But they all work. They work in different ways, and part of the skill of a therapist to know which one to use.

Doing hypnotherapy takes skill. A hypnotherapist needs to have empathy, to be able to sense other people's feelings. A good hypnotherapist develops insight. It takes experience and education to analyze other people's problems.  Hypnotherapy takes years to master.

How does hypnotherapy work?

This is actually a difficult question. Trance is natural, everyone can do it. People have investigated it for centuries. But still, no one can say exactly why hypnotherapy works.

Every human has three 'minds'. There is your logical mind, the frontal cortex, the thing you think is you. Your conscious mind makes decisions, works logically. Then there is your primitive 'alligator' mind. This controls your heartbeat, temperature, digestion - all basic animal functions. Your alligator brain is out of reach. It works even when you are unconscious.

The other 'mind' is your unconscious mind. This is your 'emotional' mind. When you go through your day, control constantly shifts between your logical mind, and your unconscious mind.

In trance, your mind cannot tell the difference between something vividly imagined and the real thing. That is how change is manufactured. While you are in trance, you are using your unconscious mind, instead of your logical mind.

For example, our unconscious mind regulates all your bodily functions like taste visualization and smell, and your emotions. In trance, your subconscious is highly responsive to suggestion. So the hypnotist can suggest that you can taste lemon juice, or smell oranges.

Your subconscious will generate the appropriate responses, and you will experience them as if they were real. You really do taste the lemons, or smell the oranges.

You still react to things you see and hear, but you do not logically evaluate them. In fact, this is not so different from your daily routines. Much of your daily behavior is unconscious.

When you are driving and you see a red light, you do not start to consider who designed it, or how it got there - you just press the pedal. You have learned to obey the traffic sign unconsciously while thinking about something else.back to stop smoking

In that unconscious state your mind becomes responsive to suggestion. In hypnosis, under the guidance of a professional hypnotist, you can do things you cannot do in normal circumstances.

For example, hypnotism can alter your heart rate, reduce your blood pressure, make you feel that one hand is warmer than the other. Or ignore pain, and perform many other functions that are normally not within conscious control. You can be hypnotized to recall long forgotten events,

In trance, your mind gets so focused on one thing that it disregards everything else. And while it is so focused, it is open to any positive suggestion. That is why hypnotherapy is effective. The right suggestions work to stop smokinglose weight or get back sexual confidence.

Most psychological  problems are caused or maintained by ideas put into your mind by other people.

Ideas like 'you are no good', 'should never have have been born', 'don't deserve to succeed', 'I will never be good enough', 'people will reject me'. These bad ideas, and others like them, are what cause most of the misery people feel.

Hypnotherapy can clear these out. Releasing you from your past will let you live your life the way it should have been all along. The theory is that hypnosis works because your mind processes hypnotic suggestions automatically. When you are in trance, the normal process of thinking and worrying is absent.

It seems to your mind as if the suggestions come from inside yourself, rather than coming from outside. Your mind will therefore accept the suggestions and will act on them.

FAQ HYPNOTHERAPY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does  hypnosis work? Answers about hypnosis

I have never tried hypnosis, will I be comfortable?

Hypnosis is gentle, relaxing and enjoyable. You will be in control at all times. You will not be doing anything you don't want to.

Stage hypnosis is for entertainment, clinical hypnotherapy is about helping you make the changes you need.

You will feel relaxed but you are not asleep, you know what is going on and you actively participate during the therapy. Hypnosis is totally natural.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis uses your own natural abilities to heal and change. In trance you are relaxed and receptive. Carefully worded suggestions change your view about the past and what you can do now.

These suggestions will replace the current ways of thinking and will give you the outcome you want. Because it comes from your own mind, there is no resistance, and no side effects.

The secret of hypnotherapy is using general suggestions that could apply to many situations. Your subconscious mind will pick up the generalized hypnotic wording and apply it to your particular problem. Once you become aware of that hidden problem you can deal with it.

Can I be hypnotized?

Everyone can be hypnotized. If you are able to imagine someone's face, or recall a tune in your mind, or recreate the feel of stroking fur, then you can be hypnotized.

Strong minded people are excellent candidates. If you have ever been lost in a daydream, or if you have been so absorbed in something that you lost track of the time, then you have been in trance.

In fact, you have already been in trance several times today. Everyone has. Ever gone into a store, and have no idea what you went in for? That was trance. If you have ever dreamed, then you can go into trance.

What if I am too intelligent to be hypnotized?

In fact, the more intelligent you are, the easier it is to be hypnotized.

What if I do it wrong?

You can't do anything wrong and you don't have to do any preparation. All you have to do is follow the instructions and let yourself relax.

It doesn't matter if you are a bit nervous or if you have never done it before.

Hypnotherapy is completely natural and although you might not realize it, you already know how to go into trance. Your own unconscious mind will take over and do it for you.

What if I am nervous?

It doesn't matter if you are nervous or calm or anything else. Many people are nervous, that's quite normal. But there is no need to be.

All I will be doing is asking you to breathe, and everything just happens naturally from then on.

What do I have to do before I get there?

You don't have to do anything to get ready to be hypnotized. Some people like to write down the points they want to talk about, but you don't have to.

Will I remember everything?

Usually you will remember most of what was said in trance and how you felt about it. Sometimes a client will go so deep that they will have no recollection of some parts.

This shows that they went into a really deep trance at some points, and is a good thing. They actually do remember it, but not consciously.

If I say "Do you recall me talking about a rose?" they will say "Oh, yes, actually I do, now you mention it". What very often happens is the client says afterwards "Look I'm sorry. I must have fallen asleep during the trance, there are parts I just don't remember".

This is an indication the client was going up and down in trance. He remembers the parts where he was lightly hypnotized, but when I touched on things of importance to him, he went deeper into trance.

He cannot recall those parts consciously, because he were not processing those thoughts with his conscious mind. If I put him into trance again, he can give complete details.

But he cannot recall a thing when awake. This is known as State Dependent Memory, and is quite normal.

What if I don't do it right?

You cannot do anything wrong. Everyone responds to hypnosis in their own way, and you will be guided and reassured at every stage.

Hypnosis is a natural ability we all have. Going into trance is something you already know how to do.

I just guide you in, like an air traffic controller guiding a plane down on to the right runway. It is always you flying the plane, not me.
All I do is to give you some suggestions about when you might want to turn left or right, but you are always in control.

What does hypnosis feel like?

In hypnosis you will feel amazingly relaxed, you will feel that nothing really matters right now. You could come out of it if you wanted but you can't be bothered.

You just want to go on lying there... and enjoying this wonderful feeling. Most people just want it to go on and on...

What if I have a personal, embarrassing problem?

Don't hold back because of what I might think. Whatever your issue is, I have heard it before.

Some people feel embarrassed or ashamed of their behavior or think they are the only person in the world with that problem. Not true.

What are the side effects of hypnosis therapy?

Professionally done hypnotherapy has no side effects. Sometimes, after the therapy, people will report having emotional moments, but that is just their mind releasing old hurts.

Is hypnotherapy safe?

Hypnosis is natural and safe. There are no secret dangers. No one has ever been harmed by going into a hypnotic trance.

There is nothing in your own mind that can harm you, and modern hypnosis therapy does not go back to old hurts and open them up again.
you are in trance you are aware of everything that is going on.

You are not unconscious. The whole process is gentle and enjoyable, and many people do self-hypnosis every single day.

From time to time you hear stories about the dangers of hypnosis. These give shocking accounts of someone, somewhere, (the names, times and locations are never given) getting stuck in a trance and not able to wake up.

Or having sex and not remembering it, or giving all their money to a stranger. These 'hypnosis dangers' stories are all nonsense. It doesn't work that way.

There are no dangers. The most common stories are about how some person somewhere was up on stage and then died afterwards. The fact is that millions of people go up on stage each year and none of them die from it.

The dangers of a hypnosis show are the same as the dangers of eating grapes. Each year thousands of people die in hospital after eating green grapes. Nobody seriously believes that it is the grapes that causes people to die in hospital.

If I let myself be hypnotized can it make me do things?

Stage hypnotists say that your unconscious mind will accept any suggestion. That is just not true.

The primary function of your subconscious mind is to keep you safe. Your mind will automatically ignore any instruction that goes against your personal values or which might harm you.

If hypnotism could get people to do anything they wanted, then I would just go to the nearest bank, tell the manager to give me the contents of the safe, and forget I was ever there. Sadly, it doesn't happen.

Is Stage Hypnosis real?

The fun demonstrations seen on stage or TV are real. They really are hypnotized, they are not pretending. But the people who volunteer to go on stage are natural exhibitionists.

They are also very carefully screened. The hypnotist makes sure that only highly hypnotizable are selected. The things people do on stage are things that they would do in normal life, given enough encouragement.

The volunteers are aware of what they are doing and can stop at any time. People usually report that on stage they felt as if part of them was watching someone else do the antics and they were happy to go along with the suggestions.

But they were aware of what was going on at all times, and could have stopped if they wanted to. No one can be made to do anything that conflicts with their own safety or their own moral values.

If you are asked to do something you are not comfortable with you will instantly come out of trance and back to normal awareness. It happens all the time on stage shows, but they don't show that bit.

Will I reveal my deepest secrets?

You will not say anything you would not divulge normally. And you won't talk in your sleep or anything like that.

If the hypnotist touches on anything that you do not want to deal with, then your subconscious mind will just ignore the suggestion.

You won't tell the hypnotist any secrets, but you might tell yourself some. It often happens that in trance you become aware of the hidden beliefs that have been holding you back, or identify the source of self sabotage that prevents you succeeding.

Can I Get Stuck?

That cannot happen. No one has ever got 'stuck' in trance. It just isn't possible. There is no danger of this.

Trance is a natural state that you go into every day, your mind knows how to deal with it. You go in and out of trance constantly.

Even if the hypnotist somehow went away and left you alone, your subconscious is still working to protect you. If there was any sudden alarm you would waken to full alertness instantly.

For as long your mind is busy with whatever the hypnotist suggested, you will remain in trance. But when you finish processing it, if nothing else was said to you, you would gradually become aware of your surroundings. You would waken naturally, as if from a gentle snooze.

How will I feel afterwards?

When you leave a normal session you will be bright and alert and totally out of trance. You can drive, you can do everything you would normally.

How long does hypnotherapy last?

Hypnotherapy not only works faster than most other therapies, it is permanent. Once you change your thinking in trance, that change is forever.

For example, once you realize that there is no Santa Claus, it is simply impossible to go back to believing in him. It is the same with hypnosis - the instant your mind accepts the hypnotic suggestion, you don't have to do that behavior anymore, and you are free for life.

Even after the session is over, your hypnosis therapy goes on working. A good hypnotherapist will leave suggestions that will last long into the future.

It is a bit like showing you how to cook instead of selling you a sandwich. Your hypnosis therapy session should last a lifetime.

What things can hypnosis fix?

Hypnosis can not cure everything. It will not make you taller, or increase your bust size, or put hair back on a bald head.

It will not make you irresistibly sexy or give you secret powers to make other people do what you want either. Sorry.

What it will do is remove old negative beliefs about yourself. Hypnotherapy will help you end bad habits, to stop smoking, or stop nail biting. Or turn off the bad feelings inside that make you overeat.

It can give you the confidence to deal with jealousy and relationships. Hypnosis can allow you to have a normal sex life. Hypnotherapy can give you the confidence to do public speaking, or get on a plane. Sometimes it really is like magic.

Does hypnosis work?

Yes, when applied by a skilled therapist to the right problem. Hypnosis often works when all other methods have failed.

Many common problems come from sub-conscious needs or beliefs. Hypnosis delves into the depths of your unconscious mind. It acts on the memories, images and fears that underlie your emotions and anxiety.

Hypnosis work is unique. It uses words to create images that your mind grabs. These images create feelings and beliefs that replace the old ones. This clears the way for new thinking. Your problems and habits stop. You start with a clean sheet.
