What Is Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a trance like state of mind that can be induced by hypnotherapists or hypnotists. Hypnotherapy is a scientifically verified and effective process that uses hypnosis to promote and secure accelerated behavioural, mental and physical changes.
Naturally Occurring Examples of Hypnosis
Hypnosis can happen naturally day to day for example when driving. Have you ever arrived at your destination and not remembered driving there? What you are experiencing is ‘highway hypnosis’. During boring journeys such as driving home from work or on a motorway where it all looks the same, you will often drift off into a trance like state. You feel safe as your subconscious mind takes over and reacts to dangers without you consciously remembering.
It is the same when you watch a really good film, you completely give control of your thoughts and feelings to the screen by deeply immersing yourself into the experience. You drift off into a trance like state or an altered state of awareness.
These day to day trances are usually light and give you a good idea of how it may feel however Hypnosis in the Clinic aims to reach a deeper level of trance so that your subconscious mind can absorb and react to the changes that you want to make.
Hypnosis in the Clinic
Your Hypnotherapist will use the first part of the session to find out about you, to understand what you want and to allow you both to get comfortable with each other to develop a level of trust. It is explained how hypnosis will work for you and some time is taken to answer any questions or concerns.
Once you are comfortable the hypnotic induction technique takes place where you are guided slowly and pleasantly into trance. You will become more deeply relaxed and into a deeper state of hypnosis as the session progresses. This is all done by listening to the sound of the hypnotherapist voice and following simple instructions. There is a window of time under hypnosis where you are very suggestible and so the hypnotherapist makes powerful suggestions to the subconscious mind to allow ideas to be absorbed. These hypnotic suggestions become part of your thinking allowing you to change.
How does Hypnosis feel?
There are a range of reported feelings whilst experiencing hypnosis all of which are very pleasant and refreshing. You will feel physically relaxed and may experience sensations such as a pleasant floating feeling, a relaxing heaviness or a nice warm feeling through out your body.
Since Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, some clients are often surprised that they hear every word and have complete awareness. Others report losing track of time, a sleepy feeling and remember nothing. However, for most people the experience is somewhere in between where they partially remember.
I have not known a single client who did not enjoy the experience. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.
Does a Hypnotised person give up control?
No, absolutely not. During Hypnosis in our Clinic one of the first things we programme into your mind is that you are in complete control which means you can end the session whenever you wish. You wouldn’t do anything that you wouldn’t ordinarily be prepared to do.
How will I feel directly after Hypnosis?
Most people report feeling absolutely fantastic about them selves. They feel relaxed, refreshed and calm. They feel great and ready to start their new journey and accept the changes.
Can anyone be Hypnotised?
Yes anyone can. Some people are quicker than others in achieving a deep level of trance but the skills of the Hypnotherapist will guide you to achieve the level that is right for you. Normally with each session you go deeper and deeper as you learn to enjoy hypnosis more and more.
