What is Hypnotherapy?
What you focus on, you amplify in your awareness. Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and mental alertness. You drop in and out of hypnosis naturally many times a day. This can be directed using techniques similar to guided meditations. Being in a deeply relaxed state helps you to focus your attention on the challenges you face in a constructive way.
What does it feel like?
If you have experienced a day dream or been so focused, so involved, so ‘entranced’ in an activity or situation that your surroundings faded away, you have experienced a trance state. It is possible for anyone who wants to be hypnotised to achieve a hypnotic trance. The depth of trance will vary and depends on how much you allow yourself to relax. Being in a trance state feels plesant and is similar to feeling sleepy or deeply relaxed. After the session you will feel refreshed and relaxed – it’s a stress free process, so why not give it a try?
How does it work?
Focusing on what you want from life and setting clear, defined goals will help you change behaviours in a very direct and effective way. Hypnosis can help change the way we think, changing the sub-conscious reactions to situations, so you can take control of your life without medications or invasive treatments.
There are four different types of brainwave. During your usual waking state you will be using beta brainwaves. When you meditate, use relaxation techniques like hypnotherapy, or are deeply absorbed in an activity, you will begin to use alpha or even theta brainwaves. This is where the changes happen. Delta brainwaves are usually recorded during very deep sleep.
Will I be in control?
Entertainment shows have sometimes wrongly shown hypnosis as a form of mind control, which can be done to a person without their consent. Or that hypnosis can be used to make a person do things against their will.
Hypnosis always requires your co-operation to achieve a trance state. Hypnosis cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do, or that is against your personal beliefs.
You will be in control of what you say during a session: hypnotherapy cannot be used to make you share information that you don’t want to.
It is impossible to become stuck in a trance state. If you fall asleep during trance you will wake up naturally as you usually would. You are in control of the trance state and can end it any time you want by simply opening your eyes.
What should I expect?
We would usually recommend three sessions to begin with. This allows the hypnotic suggestions to be absorbed and reinforced into your sub conscious mind over a period of time, with repetition. Some hypnotherapists will claim results can be achieved in just one hour-long session, for some people this will work but only a small percentage of people will respond to such a short and intense program.
Each session will involve your participation. You will be taught techniques to practice at home. The more you put into this the more you will get out of it. Hypnotherapy will not be a quick fix therapy unfortunately there is no magic wand! Can you commit to making changes in your life, giving yourself time to grow into the person you have always wanted to be?
We will teach you various techniques including self hypnosis. This can be applied to many different aspects of your life. We will record any hypnosis sessions so you can listen and practice in the comfort of your own home. We recommend you listen to this and practice self hypnosis as regularly as you can, even once you have achieved your goal.
Think of it like an old nursery rhyme you once knew word for word. Years later, without regular practice, you may find that you cannot recall all of the words or the tune. The suggestions given in trance will fade just like the nursery rhyme if you don’t keep refreshing them via self hypnosis or listening to a hypnosis recording.
How Do I know if this is right for me?
We always recommend talking to your therapist before committing to any type therapy. You should feel comfortable with your therapist, trust their abilities and have time to ask any questions or concerns you have. There are many different styles of hypnotherapy, if we aren’t the right fit for you here is a link to the National Council for Hypnotherapy where you can find many other therapists.
