What Is Hypnosis

Often the actual experience of hypnosis is extremely difficult to describe.  It is often said that there is little difference between hypnosis and daydreaming, or becoming involved in a good book or television programme.  It is an altered state of awareness and concentration which every one experiences naturally during the day. It's that relaxed feeling that one will experiences just before going to sleep at night, or as you come out of sleep in the morning.  Generally you will be aware of what is going on around you and of what the therapist is saying to you during the session, you will remember a lot of what has happened in your session, and throughout, you are always in control.  If at any stage you feel you want to end the session you can do so by just opening your eyes.  It is really important to understand that nobody can be hypnotised against their will and even when hypnotised, people can reject any suggestions that do not fit in with their own set of personal belief systems and their own personal integrity.

What is Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy means the use of hypnosis for the treatment and relief of a variety of different psychological symptoms.  It can bring relief to existing conditions or to change areas where there might be issues.  With hypnotherapy it is possible to work with and transform the thoughts that lead to self limiting beliefs. This is achieved through using complete mental and physical relaxation and visualization techniques.  It is vital to have the cooperation of the patient.

Hypnotherapy is completely natural and safe and there are no harmful side effects.  When administered by a professionally trained and skilled Clinical Hypnosis Practitioner the benefits are long lasting and often permanent. It is often successful when other, more conventional methods of treatment have failed.

Who may benefit from Hypnotherapy?

The answer to this question is “everyone”. Hypnotherapy can be used to access a person’s inner potential and that probably no one is performing to their actual potential, then this answer is true. However, it is not just potential which Hypnotherapy is well placed to address but also one’s inner resources to effect beneficial change. In this regard, it is the innate healing capacity of our own body that may be stimulated by Hypnotherapy. The list of problems which may be amenable to Hypnotherapy is far too long and varied to catalogue but certainly includes: stress, anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits and addictions (e.g. smoking, overeating, alcoholism), disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, fear of examinations and public speaking, allergies and skin disorders, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Additionally, it has proved of value within surgery, where normal anaesthetics have not been practical, in the wider sphere of pain management and in the areas of both sporting and artistic performance enhancement. As an adjunct to other counselling techniques, it can also assist in helping to resolve relationship difficulties and be useful within anger management strategies.

Who can be Hypnotised

The answer to this question is “virtually everyone”. This claim must, however, be qualified by the observation that some are more readily hypnotisable than others and that it will also depend upon one’s willingness to be hypnotised at the time.

Common concerns and misconceptions

People are sometimes concerned that they will “lose control” in hypnosis.  However, regardless of how deeply people may go in hypnosis and however passive they may appear to be, they actually remain in full control of the situation.  They are fully able to talk if they wish to (or not, as the case may be) and can stand up and leave the room at any time.  Neither can a hypnotised person be made to do anything against their usual ethical or moral judgement or religious belief.  It is likely that the notion of a loss of control stems from most people’s misconception of stage hypnosis, wherein participants are apparently made to perform all manner of (usually foolish) acts.  However, the reader should be aware that participation in a stage act is an entirely voluntary process (thus “permission” is already given to the hypnotist) and that there can be no such volunteer who is unaware of exactly what they are letting themselves in for.
